Deltaray Launches Disruptive Tech

Less than a year ago, Deltaray officially came on the scene as a new company. They’re already turning heads and disrupting conversations with their unique technology: 3D Xray equipment for 100% inspection of mission-critical mechanical parts.

Quality control woes

Industry needs quality control. It ensures customers receive defect-free products that meet their needs. This we all know. We also know that the current system isn’t perfect. Incomplete or incorrect inspections put users at risk and lead to recalls, which are, of course, are a nightmare for companies. The damage to the company’s reputation, the hassle, the expense.

Inspecting products thoroughly reduces the chances of recalls and also ensures that a company’s products function as they should every time, all the time. Current inspection technology, using CT scanning, cannot yet scan thoroughly and fast enough to do more than random sample checks. Employees can only visually check a product, and often can only do so for a few seconds before needing to move on to the next specimen.

A unique solution

This is where Deltaray comes in. In cooperation with the University of Antwerp, they’ve developed accelerated 3D x-ray technology that can inspect every individual unit both inside and out, comparing each component to engineering files using AI.

How do they do it? Image-based 3D x-ray scanning enables real time inspection in-line or near-line. at 50 to 100 µm resolution. Form-fit inspections use the CAD file as quality master, making use of AI-enabled inspection to perform fully automated defect detection. The data-driven analysis and resulting reporting is Quality 4.0 compliant.

The exciting technology behind Deltaray’s turnkey inspection solutions offers plenty of possibilities for critical part manufacturers in the automotive, additive manufacturing, critical assemblies, and medical devices industries.

Find out more

Deltaray’s official launch takes place in two weeks. You can meet them and find out more for yourself at the free entry Virtual Industry Fair on June 10. They’ll be one of the keynote speakers at the event.

Interested companies can attend a private open house on 16 and 17 June, where they’ll get a glimpse of the first demo system and be able to interact with the Deltaray team. You can visit their website to get your personal invitation.

Breathing with Confidence Thanks to Collaboration

Breathe with Confidence

A small, partly cobble-stoned street in Antwerp’s Berchem neighborhood seems unremarkable enough. On one side, low garages, probably for the apartment buildings on the busier parallel street. On the other side, a newbuild of pleasing dark brick and street-level windows starting at your shoulder. This is the new Yust space (part hotel, part apartments, part co-working event space – but we’ll get to the specifics of what they do a little later).

Looking back at the China-EU Semiconductor Summit

DSP Valley, together with BCSemi NL, CyNergy-Consulting and Xiamen Semiconductor Investment Group (XMSIG), co-organized the China-EU Semiconductor Summit on 10 September in Eindhoven. The event focused on further collaboration between the China and European semiconductor industry to develop solutions for 5G, faster wireless internet, self-driving cars and for more innovative health solutions. We reported on its success in October.

Preventing excessive weight gain during pregnancy is critical because the risks for both mother and child are severe. Yet, doing so in an accurate way, from the early phase of pregnancy and without harming fundamental privacy rights is far from trivial.
