IVISYS AB (‘IVISYS’) announces that the company has submitted a patent application with the Swedish Patent and Registration Office regarding a ‘System and Method for Optical Inspection of an Object’. The patent application relates to a system for optical inspection, which, in general terms, provides homogeneous illumination of objects, thereby improving the overall accuracy of optical inspections.
The ability of vision systems to detect defects in a quick and reliable manner is strongly influenced by the quality of illumination of the object under inspection. Both the intensity and the symmetry of the illumination are important in this regard. For this reason, vision systems commonly rely on multiple light sources, with various types of illumination optics. IVISYS’ new patent application covers a novel way of assembling illumination sources, ensuring more homogeneous illumination of objects than is otherwise possible.
CTO MOATASEM CHEHAIBER’S COMMENTS:
“This new patent application reaffirms that we are an overall innovative company. Our patent portfolio is growing steadily and, with this new application, we go beyond only having software related patents as this patent application relates to the construction of pure hardware. I am pleased that we are able to carry out high-level R&D on the back of our efforts in creating long lasting solutions for our customers,” says IVISYS CTO Moatasem Chehaiber.
As is common in patent approval processes, a patent application is firstly filed in one country. After approval, subsequent applications are filed in other countries. This is also expected to be the case for this new patent, as protecting IVISYS’ intellectual property is part of the company’s long-term strategy.

IVISYS provides vision-based, quality inspection solutions for the industry, which can replace both manual and mechanical quality control. IVISYS’s unique, patented solutions make it possible to perform complex quality control while keeping the existing production flow unaffected. Unlike existing solutions, IVISYS provides solutions that make it possible to perform complex surface controls, control measurements on the micron level, and control multiple components in one instant process. The solutions are based on IVISYS’s patented image data processing, which differs fundamentally from the conventional processes used within vision systems today. IVISYS is capable of utilising high-resolution cameras in the company’s image processing, while at the same time processing image information faster than the company’s competitors. The solutions offered, have an average payback period of approximately six months for customers currently relying on mechanical or manual control.
