OEM Component Design

We are an expert outsourced entity for OEM component design and manufacture. In many cases we work directly with system designers, machine builders, and/or integrators to provide OEM components or modules designed to do a very specific function with very well characterized specifications. We help our clients develop these specifications so that in serial production these devices meet the requirement 100% of the time. In this manner we can ensure that an optimized design is developed, and that the final QC testing of each module is sufficient to ensure that every OEM module will provide the expected system requirement. While most of the OEM components and/or systems developed for our clients are proprietary and protected by confidentiality agreements, the following few give a reasonable representation of these kinds of projects.


We have decades of experience in the deployment of linescan solutions for industries as diverse as flat panel display, printed circuit board, postal and parcel sorting, surface inspection, thin transparent films, and many others. This combination brightfield and darkfield OEM component level solution for linescan application provides excellent image control for a number of applications. The different structural modes can be adjusted in real time, allowing the user to manipulate both structure and spectral properties to drive high contrast imaging solutions for a number of scanning applications.


The inspection of mass produced optically clear or translucent materials presents some of the most challenging problems for automated inspection. Using specially designed LED-based optical modules like those shown here, these kinds of products may be inspected at high speeds using standard linescan camera based systems. High intensity, extreme uniformity, and precise optical structure are key to the solution of these applications.


The explosive market for CCD and CMOS imaging sensors has meant an ever increasing demand for systems that can properly qualify and test these devices. We have developed a range of OEM lighting/optics modules for testing stations which characterize these devices from the sensor level design stage through final QC testing of completed camera modules used in everything from laptops and web tablets to cell phones. The displayed unit has multi-wavelength capabilities with dynamic range of more than 70dB.
