Instant Inspection: Zero Defects, Minimum Waste
Why continue producing a high-end composite automotive part or a quality technical-textile product if defects had occured early on in the production steps? Current technologies offer only post-production inspection capabilities, at speeds lower than production throughputs.
Instant inspection aims to release the breaks off production, by detecting defects or contaminants at each production step, without slowing down the production lines. Therefore, cutting down on waste and boosting production yield.
TiHive has developed a state-of-the-art solution, based on the powerful type of electromagnetic light: The Terahertz Light.
Terahertz Light: Vision of the Invisible
Terahertz waves, or T-Light, are electromagnetic waves (between microwave radio frequencies and infrared optical frequencies). T-Light sees through many materials such as textiles, paper, plastic and leather.
The most exciting aspect of Terahertz light is that it has no dangerous impact on the human.
Traditionally, T-Light has been difficult to generate and detect via commercial technologies. Existing technologies are bulky and inflexible. This is why it is dubbed the “final frontier of vision”.
TiHive Solution: Intelligent and Scalable
Tremendous efforts have been exerted worldwide to bring this technology out of laboratories to end users. This has been eventually made possible via the TiHive technology.
TiHive develops multi-pixel modular inspection systems. These plug&play modules embody Terahertz sources and detectors with AI signal processing.
Our technology is based on mass-production Silicon nano-electronics; the semiconductor that has enabled of all modern electronic products such as the smart-phones. We use advanced nodes of CMOS and BiCMOS process technologies. This leads to ultra-high levels of integration, allowing us to implement numerous functionalities on tiny Silicon chips of only few square-millimetres.
