Quality determines the success or failure of a supplier. But 100% inspection
in a high speed production line is not always possible or practical. Manufacturers
desperately need a cost effective solution capable of performing 100% inline
component inspection at production speed. This solution must be able to detect
defects and validate 3D measurements of both the internal and external structure
of such components.
Quality without sacrifice is possible!
LynX Inspection is developing a game-changing machine vision solution for parts manufacturers that not only is fast and easy to use, but is also affordable, easy to automate and ready for Industry 4.0. This solution is based on a proprietary method (patent pending) that we refer to as Predictive 3D Radiography. This new method combines digital X-ray imagery with computer vision and 3D simulation. It fully exploits X-ray Physics and known information about the object and its environment to complement the data extracted from hundred of sequential X-ray images captured in just a few seconds. Defects are found and analyzed by comparing features in the X-ray images with the expected results from a corresponding sequence of simulated images.
The solution provides 3D inspection results that are equivalent to Computed Tomography (CT) but in a process that is about 20X faster and with an equipment that is typically 4X cheaper. For large quantities, labor costs can be more than 10X cheaper than what they would be for a traditional X-ray inspection process.
Our inspection solution is quite flexible. Our primary focus at the moment is for manufactured precision parts that are less than 30 cm in length, but future version will be able to handle much larger components, such as helicopter blades and driving shafts. We also plan to develop inline solutions for high volume production capabilities that will be able to radiographically inspect parts in full 3D with a real time throughput of more than 100 items per minute. All these solutions fulfill a capability gap in the industry as they provide the means for manufacturer to perform a full 3D inner and outer structure inspection at higher speed and lower cost than anything else on the market.
The primary market for such solution is the industrial inspection of manufactured parts and assemblies with tight tolerances, particularly for the aerospace, defense, automotive industries or any other application that demands very high quality standards. This solution is ideally suited for casted parts, molded parts, high precision machined parts and even very complex parts such as those usually found in additive manufacturing (i.e. 3D printing).
Molded Parts, Turbine Blades, Connectors, Composite Parts, etc.
Ammunition, Weapon Components, Vehicle Parts, etc.
Disk Brakes, Engine Parts, Alloy Wheels, Plastic Covers, Ceramic Parts, etc.
Glass Bottles and Containers, Plastic Screw Tops, Precision Tools, etc.
LynX Inspection is a young high-tech company based in Quebec City
that develops new inspection solutions for the industrial sector
based primarily on three-dimensional analysis and X-ray imaging.
The company aims to push the current boundaries of quality control
by offering manufacturers and other industry stakeholders and
affordable solution for defect detection and metrology that fill
many of today's gaps while setting the stage for the smart
factories of tomorrow.
Founded in April 2016, the company benefits from the expertise of a very experienced team with a proven track record. It is currently housed at the National Optics Institute (INO), Canada's leading developer of industrial optics and photonics solutions, and has been selected as part of its national «Entrepreneur-in-Residence» program, a joint initiative by INO and Ville de Québec, with the collaboration of Anges Québec, that gives startup companies involved in optics and photonics research a better chance of succeeding. The company is also supported by ACET, a technology accelerator based in the Sherbrooke area.
We are a Technology Startup with a unique solution that will change the world of industrial inspection forever. We are looking for dynamic and capable individuals that love innovation and are not affraid of technical challenges.
