KEOX APPLICATIONS

The following are highlights of applications our systems are used in.

Engineers at Keox Technologies have lived the life of manufacturing and have “been in the trenches” on the factory floor (“We’ve seen a thing or two!”). Keox systems are designed to be industrial strength for manufacturing environments, emphasizing:

  • Reliability and robustness
  • Ease of use and maintenance
  • Minimized downtime
  • System self-checks and verification

In industries:

  • Ceramics and Glass
  • Semiconductor and Electronics
  • Food and Beverage
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Wire and Cable Manufacturing
  • Automotive
  • Plastics and Composite Materials
COLOR INSPECTION

How good is your color control system? Color inspection is complex. Keox have designed several systems to address sensitive and complex color inspection applications. Example: inspecting color(s) on a patterned product and applying pattern recognition for pass/fail.

Our systems have been used in both LAB and dirty INDUSTRIAL environments including applications demanding 24-7-365 days a year performance.

2D OPTICAL MICROMETER

How difficult are your requirements for profile measurements?  Keox systems can accurately measure down to sub-microns with a process that’s easily transferable to your plant personnel.

Example: one customer used it for product quality inspection and creating batch analytics.  Another used it for automatic tool alignment which saved them equipment setup time and improved machining quality.

HIGH SPEED CAMERA MONITORING SYSTEM

“Why is this happening?”  How many times have engineers struggled with this question?  Keox’s High Speed Camera Monitoring System provides the answers to WHY this is happening.  Engineers and technicians can gain insight into hard to find, hard to see places where the real information hides.

Our High Speed Camera Monitoring System can help you monitor and record those elusive, intermittent issues, investigate events over long periods of time, gather information, and confirm your hypothesis.

Sporadic, intermittent process events can drive production crazy.  Keox’s software provides benefits by featuring several ways of triggering the recording.  For example, the system can be setup indefinitely to catch the elusive milliseconds of interesting events (and without going through all the uneventful data!).

We can also attach image processing and measurements to help engineers understand those events.

HIGH SPEED INSPECTION SYSTEMS

How about micron-level inspection of beans and rice as it’s dropping through the AIR?  Keox have designed systems for this purpose; to sort-out foreign materials, collect batch analytics, and find micron-level defects.

We also figured out the material handling timing for separating the bad particles from the good.

By integrating the material handling timing for separating bad particles from good, Keox engineers, via thorough system integration, provides more than just an inspection system but rather a complete inspection and process control system.

INLINE AND CONTINUOUS (WEB) MANUFACTURING PROCESSES

This particular application is one of the most demanding in the industry.  It’s CONTINOUS, PRECISE, and at HIGH-SPEED (micron-level defects at several hundred meters per minute) making process control and inspection more than just your everyday challenge.

(OK, for us imperial system users – smaller than a mil defect at speeds of several hundred / thousand feet per minute!)

To put another difficult twist into an already challenging application, the customer also needed to inspect at high speeds from an inaccessible angle.

CHIP PACKAGING / PRINT QUALITY INSPECTION

Looking for micron-level inspection at demand rate? Keox developed a system which inspects semiconductor chips for defects on its encapsulation and lead frame.

Additionally, the system inspected the chips’ print quality and evaluating its readability.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN AND STAGES OF INNOVATION

What about processes still in the R&D stages? Keox emphasizes that the R&D stage is the best place to have partnership with our customers. Each Stage of Development brings new challenges. By eliminating these challenges early on with the innovation process, scalability to the manufacturing floor becomes predictable, efficient, and controllable.

  • Early Stage Prototype and Proof-of-Concept Experiments
  • Small Volume Trial Manufacturing
  • High Volume Mass Production
