Imaging Systems for Specific Industry Applications
1990 , AVS has been designing specific image analysis solutions for
industry. Initially focusing on the the Pulp &
Paper Industry, AVS now has instruments for Gypsum board, textiles, non-wovens
Many mills struggle to find imaging instruments to do specifically what they need to adequately replace visually assessed inspection for process control.
Many of off-the-shelf systems promise to do all things
but lack the specific reporting formats and customized algorithms for these tests.
AVS developed proprietary algorithms that mimic human vision and yield increased precision and repeatability. These algorithms can be tuned to "see" what your present inspection personnel are trained to see. AVS works with your samples and can typically develop custom solutions within a few weeks.
AVS has over 28 years experience in R&D, which means faster solutions. AVS may already have what you need or can be simply adapted to your materials. AVS designs the complete system consisting of illumination, imaging platform and computing.
AVS pioneered the first 400 DPI optical flatbed scanner
platform for rapid assessment of dirt and ink particles in pulp and paper. Custom software
was designed to allow the scanner , which unlike its camera counterparts, generated image
data several megabytes in size to be analyzed with a standard 16MHZ PC with 1
megabyte of memory and DOS 3.1 ! It was now possible to do a complete TAPPI dirt
count on a 8.5x11 inch sheet in only 20 seconds.
I have been an analytical engineer for over 40 years. President of AVS for
My main business is designing vision instruments that have a degree of artificial intelligence via custom designed algorithms.
Combined with the right illumination and hardware , AVS instruments more like
robots that "see" and quantify what they see.
My instruments are customer driven with your input and expertise combined with my analytical skills. This yields a tool that can be depended on to accurately and precisely give quantifiable results to guide process control improvements.
Over the years AVS has built partnerships with a number of outsourced expertise.
Including fabricators, suppliers and other engineering specialties.
I am available for consulting, problem solving and any type of R&D projects
that may need my special competencies.
Besides AVS I have also owned and operated a small restaurant.
Have extensive real life experience on how to beat patent infringement.
Lived in Fiji for 4 years.
