Partnering opportunity

Complex problem solving in industrial inspection


An East of England company with an enviable reputation for 100% customer satisfaction are leading providers of solutions to complex inspection and measurement related problems in manufacturing. Users benefit from cleverly devised, soundly engineered working solutions and an insight into future possibilities for their product and process development. Type of collaboration proposed: commercial agreement with technical assistance. Also, technical cooperation around new vision based products.

Partner sought

Type of partner sought: industry Specific area: manufacturing and/or laboratory Role: provide an outline of the requirement so that the UK Company can illustrate similar work already done.


With the rapid development of digital imaging products, machine vision applications can offer huge benefits in improved quality, increased productivity and faster ROI for the manufacturing industries. Successful deployment of a machine vision application depends on clearly understanding the details of the requirement, selecting the appropriate technique (2D, 3D, Laser Scanning etc.) the most suitable hardware (cameras, lenses, lasers, lighting) and developing image processing and analysis software to produce an accurate, robust, repeatable and reliable solution. Often the product or component to be inspected needs to be manipulated so it can be viewed from different positions. This is where the mechanical handling and automation aspects of the solution apply. With a strong background in industrial automation the company is able to offer solutions ranging from software only, through integrated packages for OEM’s, to complete ‘turnkey’ automated inspection and measurement systems. Having already worked with many organisations, including some global blue chippers, often on applications where others have failed to deliver, the company has a growing reputation for providing innovative and ground breaking solutions. Whether a large automotive supply company wanting an automated high speed, high accuracy inspection system; a cytology company wanting human cell analysis and counting; a medical device manufacturer wanting help with product development; a nuclear fuels company wanting 100% inspection of product in a hazardous environment, like many others, they turned to this UK company for help. The company welcomes manufacturers and laboratories to make contact to enquire about any inspection and measurement requirements they may have. The likely type of collaboration then is commercial agreement with technical assistance. Such a collaboration would include an in-depth exchange of technical detail during the early stages and site visits and training by the UK company during the implementation. The company also welcomes descriptions of emergent technologies and products in these fields. Under technical cooperation new and superior hardware and software would be implemented into third-party projects (commercial agreements with technical assistance).

Advantages and innovations

The company’s success is due to a combination of experience, technical ingenuity and excellent customer relations in the industry. The innovation lies in the modification of off-the-shelf and in-house technical solutions, hardware and software, for the benefit of a greater system. Such development projects heavily rely on the skills and expertise of the staff. The clients’ success can be described through increased productivity, reduced costs, improved quality and time saving. Improvements can sometimes also be made in ‘future proofing’ product and process design.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
