Sensor-based food inspection and sorting Customer Success Story - Line scan SWIR camera Lynx proves its mettle in food inspection and sorting application
Dual-Band Monitoring Keeps Trains Running in Winter Keeping critical parts of the railroad infrastructure free of snow, sleet, hail and ice – and even detecting unauthorized persons walking the rails – is essential for a safe and uninterrupted transportation service. Dual-band monitoring of critical rail elements with a PTZ (pan, tilt and zoom) camera platform in the visible and thermal infrared ranges can remotely inspect installed switch heaters at a range of up to 2000 ft.

Onder het alziend oog van de infrarood camera In 2000 ruilde Bob Grietens zijn vertrouwde stoel op imec voor een directiestoel in zijn eigen bedrijf, Xenics. In deze spinoff vindt de infraroodtechnologie die destijds bij imec werd ontwikkeld, zijn weg naar de (high-end) markt. CEO Bob Grietens blikt terug op 13 jaar ondernemen en kijkt vol verwachting naar de toekomst. GROEI EN NIEUWE TOEPASSINGEN prijken bovenaan de lijst met verwachtingen.
Q&A for Imaging and Machine Vision Europe CEO Bob Grietens gives his opinion about the importance of infrared imaging for the machine vision industry. He will do so in an interview with the renown trade magazine Imaging and Machine Vision Europe (IMVE). Market trends and technology features are also well covered.
Adapting to change From humble beginnings, the Belgian company Xenics has grown to become one of the world's leading suppliers of short-wave infrared cameras outside the US. Nadya Anscombe finds out how the company has survived the economic crisis by changing its business strategy and continually developing its products.
Vlaamse knowhow in slimme composieten Composietmaterialen worden vandaag veelvuldig gebruikt in windturbinebladen, scheepsrompen en vliegtuigen omwille van hun uitzonderlijke eigenschappen op het vlak van sterkte, gewicht, duurzaamheid en corrosiebestendigheid. Een uitdaging bij het gebruik van deze materialen is het opvolgen van de slijtage, een complex proces dat moeilijk in kaart te brengen is.
Infrared endeavours Warren Clark explores how Belgian company Xenics has carved out a niche in the field of infrared cameras.
Xenics: zichtbaar succes met Europese O&O-steunprogramma’s De wereldwijde markt van geavanceerde infrarooddetectoren en -camera’s kent een explosieve groei. In dit domein ontwikkelt het jonge Vlaamse bedrijf Xenics uit Leu-ven toonaangevende producten en toepassingen. Voor de financiering van onderzoek en ontwikkeling doet het onder meer een beroep op Europese program-ma’s.
Xenics meer en meer zichtbaar Xenics, ontwikkelaar en producent van innovatieve infrarood (IR)-detectoren en -camera’s en spin-off van IMEC, heeft sinds zijn oprichting 7 jaar geleden een indrukwekkend groeiparcours afgelegd. Omzet, aantal werknemers, marktpotentieel, alles gaat in stijgende lijn. Net zoals de werkvloer, want binnenkort betrekken ze in het bedrijfsgebouw in Haasrode een nieuwe vleugel. Te midden van de verhuisdozen geeft CEO Bob Grietens zijn visie op het belangrijkste doen en laten van een bedrijf in groei.

Thermal Imagers in mobile systems for Security & Safety Market

It was a challenge to produce a mobile system for border control in just 6 months, but with Xenics as a partner we could apply for this project.
