New World Class Products Emerge From Global Partnership; Inspection Prowess, Automation Leadership, Innovative Research & DevelopmentVJ Technologies5, Bohemia, NY, USA
Bohemia, NY, October, 2016 – This year, three global leaders in technology have joined forces. VJ Technologies, a division of VJ Group, is proud to announce their partnership with German-based organizations Erhardt + Abt and the Development Center for X-ray Technology EZRT of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. Erhardt + Abt is a world leader in turn-key automation solutions for a wide range of industries, while the Development Center for X-ray Technology EZRT of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS leads the local and international industry in research and development for x-ray technologies. VJT’s engineering prowess in x-ray inspection and world-leading imaging technology and software, in combination with E+A’s expertise in precision handling and comprehensive solutions and Fraunhofer’s innovation in product and technology development, has created a collaboration that will offer products and solutions with the highest throughput and image quality for high-volume casting production environments.
Together, VJT, E+A, and Fraunhofer are leveraging their relationship to perfect design and engineering elements for the development of new x-ray inspection systems. Their partnership has created a new standard in x-ray inspection solutions for the most demanding of production environments, “a new world-class line of products,” said Vijay Alreja, CEO of VJ Group.
Introducing Three New Groundbreaking Products
Three introductory products stemming from the new collaboration offer unique solutions to meet the unique needs and requirements of VJT’s wide range of customers. These products will officially launch at the start of 2017, however there has already been buzz around the machines, with VJT offering exclusive information and viewings at industry tradeshows.
The collection of products includes the HeiDetect Wheel Robot, allowing for 40-70% more throughput for wheel manufacturing inspection, the ValuCT/ValuCT+, a 2-level product that allows for easy one-touch computed tomography, and the HeiDetect Inline CT that’s fully automated to scan parts in just 35 seconds. The new systems will all leverage VJ X-Ray sources and VJ Group’s world-leading Vi3™ Software Suite.
E+A and Fraunhofer are also on track to improve automation for other existing VJT products, further enhancing and evolving the technology for the company, and the industry.
New Sales Management & Opportunities
In addition to their technological partnership, E+A will begin managing all of VJT’s European sales, first for their new collaborative products, and eventually transitioning to fully manage sales for VJT’s complete line of products as well as pursuing new sales opportunities in the region.
