What is our technological scope?

LabVIEW is an exceptionally versatile tool, and we use it to solve the most diverse challenges. We focus on:
 

Production

We use LabVIEW to control & automate production lines. We monitor and log data, 
and integrate with customer backend systems.

We cater to all the fancy buzz words like IoT, Industrie 4.0,  Big Data,  Predictive Applications,  Traceability…

 

Embedded

We use LabVIEW Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA to build embedded, network-enabled control devices and device drivers.

We also use other platforms like Raspberry Pi or Arduino for prototyping and for very specialized applications.

 

Vision

We use LabVIEW Vision to automate optical inspection (AOI) tasks in production lines.

We build turn-key solutions with graphical UIs running on industrial grade hardware like NI Smart Cameras.

Delacor Queued Message Handler (DQMH)

The DQMH is a reference design provided by Delacor. It expands on the NI QMH by providing safe, event-based message handling and scripting tools to make development easy, encourage same style between different developers in the same project and improve efficiency.

We use DQMH for most of our projects. Fabiola and her team gave us tremendous support when we replaced our framework with DQMH. They have been very responsive and helpful ever since. We all know that the tool itself can only take you so far. It’s the people behind the technique and their mindset that really matter.
