Speeding innovation for industry
Tridimeo develops high-precision and ultra-fast 3D vision systems to meet its industrial customers' high-throughput quality inspection and automated robot control needs.
Tridimeo's spectrally-coded-light 3D scanner, built on a technology developed at the CEA, represents a major advance in industrial vision systems. Users no longer need to choose between accuracy and speed. Tridimeo's system delivers 3D images at speeds of up to five frames per second with sub-millimeter precision. And, with optical spectrum acquisition capabilities, the scanner can monitor product colors and detect undesirable elements like a drop of liquid on the neck of a bottle, for example.
Tridimeo's system can substantially improve quality inspection, even on high-throughput production lines. Defects can be detected very early on in manufacturing processes, dramatically reducing the costs of non-quality. The system can also be used to automate robot control. Real-time 3D part location accurate to within under a millimeter keeps industrial robots on task and on time.
Tridimeo holds an exclusive license to a CEA patent and is continuing to improve its technology through a joint R&D lab with List.
