Exploiting the full potential of data: Mission launched.
The future of the x-ray business is in digital data. In addition to the x-ray data itself, we have more and more data sources available to us. Our challenge is to effectively use this data to add value for our customers.
The biggest potential lies in the so-called data post-processing. This is where valuable information is extracted for customers from the data captured by x-ray techniques. Only with special skills in data analysis and evaluation can this treasure trove of data be turned into actionable information.
Raising productivity: Predicting product characteristics and process faults
“One of our customers’ biggest challenges is to constantly increase their speed of production while avoiding waste. On this front, companies face international competition and must use innovative production processes to continually push the limits of what is possible,” explains Christian Driller.
We can help with this in two areas: First, in predicting product characteristics, by providing our customers with progressively better and more comprehensive information on their products going forward. For example, on how a defective component can be salvaged in the subsequent process steps or how key properties of a piece will turn out. A good example of this is the possibility of sorting batteries into categories based on their performance or their quality grade. Using such sorting, done at a very early stage and without requiring any further testing steps, a battery’s category can determine the subsequent path along the chain of possible production steps and prevent the destruction of value.
