Synthetic data for food sorting

There are multiple Demcon innovations where synthetic data plays a key role. The results of the ‘Synthetic data for food sorting’ project are something we will all have to deal with sooner or later. At least, if you like green beans or strawberries. After all, how can you filter out bad green beans and strawberries during…

How does a needle placement robot work?

The starting point for developing the needle placement robot was to retain the current workflow as closely as possible, and only to automate the steps critical for the speed and result (‘first time right’) of the procedure. The critical step is…

Ingenious and ergonomic design of steerable guidewires

Guidewires have been used for ages to perform image-guided procedures in the circulatory system, such as angioplasty, catheter insertion, stent placement and brain surgery. They require precise intravascular steerability for accessing difficult-to-reach anatomical locations and limiting damage inside the body….

Autonomous water-pipe inspection robot

Guaranteeing drinking water quality and preventing water spillage requires good management of the huge pipeline networks. Commissioned by the drinking water companies, recently united in the company SubMerge, we have developed a prototype inspection robot. It can navigate autonomously through water…

Robuust indoor (zonder GPS) kunnen vliegen met een Drone

Bij steeds meer handelingen die we in het dagelijks leven doen, kan technologie een ondersteunde functie vervullen. Door beschikbare technologie slim te combineren kan deze ingezet worden voor nieuwe toepassingen. Zo werkten we voor Holland Robotics (Logistiek) aan een indoor drone,…

Cracking the glass code

We have grown accustomed to metal and concrete printing. But glass? It not only has a very high melting point, it also becomes brittle after solidifying too quickly. Together with the German specialist in advanced solutions from high-performance materials QSIL we…
