IQ Manufacturing Solutions (IQMS), a provider of intelligent machine vision solutions, announced this week that, in addition to a previous umbrella licensing agreement with Dofasco , Dofasco is also licensing its oil-spray monitoring technology to IQMS to develop for use in other manufacturing processes.
In 2006, Dofasco partnered with IQ Manufacturing Solutions to commercialize the Smart Camera vision inspection technology. With the roll-out of the Smart Camera platform into the food and beverage, metals, pharmaceutical, automotive and packaging industries, IQMS is expanding its product offering with Dofasco’s oil-spray monitoring technology. The OILi system leverages Smart Camera technology to monitor deposition of lubricant on exposed galvanneal product, a material often used in the automotive industry.
“Smart Camera based solutions have the potential to provide many opportunities to improve manufacturing efficiencies in a variety of industries,” said Michael Dudzic, general manager of process automation for Dofasco.
