How we work

How to respond fast and with a high degree of certainty?

JLI is world leader in customized computer vision systems. We develop computer vision systems as pioneers in new areas where no standard system fits. We also go to the limit of the possible with standard systems, ex. by finding the optimal illumination of the object to be able to see the defects, or saving distressed vision systems by defining new setups for light sources or software changes. Very often there is a wish from the customer, to get a suggestion for a realistic solution fast and with a high degree certainty. To make this happen there are several different preconditions that have to be in place.

When you are working in an area where nobody has been before, you need to investigate the problem, the products, the defects, the surroundings, the environment etc.

To help the engineers in the exciting phase of solving a task, you need tools.

One of the most important tools you need, except knowledge and experienced colleges, is test facilities.

What kind of test facilities is needed to solve a computer vision problem?

Your first goal is to get a good image of the object of interest. Very often you need to get samples from the customer, with the defects or details they want to know more about.

To get a good image of the sample, you have to define the needed resolution through the choice of camera and optics, and you need to control the light on the object.

Optics - how we work

"We have all needed camera types, software tools at our hands, and with a great variety of optics and light sources, we are well prepared for any challenge a customer gives us"

To work with the image, you need computers and different software tools, to test and define the best solution. At JLI we have several smart cameras and different software libraries for fast prototyping, but also specially developed software frameworks, that allow our engineers to change and modify every part of the software, to secure robust, fast and reliable solutions – where standard tools fall short.

At JLI we have some of the very best test facilities in our business area, to make sure that the engineers will have the best prerequisites to solve a task.

We have several dedicated test rooms, with full control of the surroundings, where we can prepare test set-up’s for different projects.

At present we have more than 30 projects running, and several test set-up’s prepared for inspection of samples and testing different computer vision configurations, to define the best solution for a specific project.

To secure a short lead time JLI has invested time and resources in test facilities, to support our dedicated engineers and technicians: Preassembled camera units, brackets, optics, adjustable magnet holders, conveyors, motorized height adjustable beams etc. are just some of the tools needed to give the customer a fast response with a high degree of certainty. We offer test and demos for our customers at our site to ensure a common understanding and to jointly define the right solution.

As there is a high variety of projects and many solutions for a specific project, you need many different types of cameras, optics and light sources to make sure, you can define and test the best configuration every time.

It is important to JLI, that we are able to give our customers a reliable and fast response on their request. It can happen that the answer to the customer, will be ´.. it is not possible or too expensive according to the business case’, or a feasible solution may require changes in the surrounding production line. Very often it is crucial for the customer to get an answer fast and with a high certainty, because it can have impact on the following production setup - especially in the pharma business.

JLI has worked more than 35 years with pharma, glass, steel and custom projects.

We know how important pre investigations and tests are, to get the perfect solution for a project.
