FRAMOS advises manufacturers in deploying and developing state-of-the-art imaging systems. Dr. Franz mentions the instance of a customer seeking FRAMOS’ assistance in developing a 3D laser line camera. The customer had specific requirements on time-to-market, interface control, specific 3D image processing features and cable size, among other requirements. FRAMOS took the challenge head-on and successfully customized all aspects ranging from camera design, lens, size, interface, and processing. “We are really focused on helping our customers enjoy a competitive edge, like reduced time-to-market and enhanced cost efficiency— something they are unable to get in the standardized market,” states Dr. Franz. FRAMOS has a record of catering to numerous customers in the logistics domain, where the company assists in adding data—pertaining to 3D size, weight, and surface area—to their automatic robotic imaging systems, through its proprietary software applications.
Our goal is to enable machines to ‘see and think’
The company attributes its success to its partner network that has a significant role to play in serving their customers. The company works with two types of partners—one, the line partners, specific for each category, like lenses, sensors, or cameras and two, localized partners. Depending on the client’s location, localized partners help to enable FRAMOS to develop solutions with the best cost/ performance ratio in the market. Dr. Franz mentions that FRAMOS believes in partnering with all its customers to support their growth as opposed to competing with them, a noble thought driving the company’s growth. He dutifully acknowledges the role of his company’s workforce, in steering the company ahead, which has taken cognitive computing to several smaller niche industries. The move clearly readies FRAMOS for the new heights it is poised to reach in the near future.
