Robotic Vision Technologies upgrades eVisionFactory machine vision solution

Robotic Vision Technologies, a provider of machine vision software, has upgraded its eVisionFactory solution.

The company says the new system is “transforming the way car manufacturers operate with the latest version upgrade to the award-winning eVisionFactory technology”.

RVT’s technology has been operating on mission critical equipment at car manufacturing plants for years, in some cases for more than a decade. 

While cutting edge when first installed, the rapid pace of technology ensures the hunt for enhancements never end.

RVT’s dedication to staying ahead of the curve means that any factory implementing its technology maintains a position at the forefront of their industry.

The new systems are already at work in several Toyota, Honda, and Ford plants, with up to a hundred more systems being scheduled for the upgrades.

RVT founder and CEO Rick Weidinger says: “Making cars has always been an important application of our technology.

“In fact, our vision software has over 300 installs in over 40 facilities ranging from small manufacturers to large automotive original equipment manufacturers.

“Once they’ve seen what the software is capable of, our customers regularly commission upgrades for the vision systems that have served them so well.”

The newest version of RVT’s software system brings a new level of efficiency and accuracy to factory production lines.

The upgraded version includes compatibility with the Windows 10 operating system as well as a new wizard-based graphical user interface designed by the RVT team for the end-user ease in mind.

The upgraded version is paired with an even faster processing speed, meaning that the machines run through their cycles significantly faster.

The company adds that, in a study by one of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced automakers, RVT’s technology was found to be “10 – and in some cases up to 100 – times more precise than any of its competitors”.

Weidinger says: “We’ve catapulted our technology to a new level of speed and repeatability.

“But, we won’t stop here. With our research and development, we hope to be the go-to provider for 3D vision guidance solutions.”
