Octum designs and delivers since 1996 high-performance machine vision solutions for completeness and assembly inspection, surface inspection, robot guidance and part identification, from simple to complex applications for all industries. Depending on the task, we use stand-alone or networked smart cameras, as well as PC systems with matrix-, line scan- and 3D – cameras. We supply well-known companies in the automotive component, electronics, medical technology, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods industries, manufacturers of metal goods, as well as machine builders.

The modular machine vision system CV 600 with the CV-Inspect system software is the technological basis for advanced 2D and 3D surface defect inspection systems specifically for metallic parts, able to reliably detect material or production related faults. Typical faults that can be detected on individual parts include dents, pores, chips, pits, discolouration, rust, scratches, grooves, grinding defects etc. Due to the combination of 2D and 3D inspection methods the process related false reject rate is minimised.

The system software OCTUMISEr provides the ideal user interface for decentralised inspection solutions implemented with networked smart cameras. OCTUMISEr offers a centralised overview and configuration platform for up to 99 smart In-Sight cameras from Cognex distributed on the manufacturing lines. All cameras may be controlled from one central point regardless of the specific task they are actually performing.

Complete systems from Octum for all types of tasks have a functionally reliable, flexible and user-friendly design. For specific tasks, we integrate the required number of fixed or mobile 1D, 2D or 3D cameras along with the associated optical systems and lighting. The systems’ standard interfaces guarantee smooth integration into the production lines.

Octum is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
