February – via Mitacs: Mitacs internship improves technology for industrial manufacturing in several sectors. Eigen was in need of a researcher to help solve a data challenge to improve their software that uses thermal cameras to capture video and sensor data for industrial manufacturing, and then analyzes it to advance quality performance on factory floors in a variety sectors, including automotive and food processing.
October 27, 2016 – via BetaKit: Canada’s C100 organization has selected Eigen Innovations, along with 21 other companies, to take part in the 48Hrs in the Valley program, which brings Canadian startups to Silicon Valley for an intensive two days of mentorship, networking, and investor meetings in December.
Eigen’s Greg Picot sat down last week at Dell EMC World with Dell’s Jason Shepherd, IBM Watson’s Greg Knowles, Software AG’s Giles Nelson, and Action Point’s John Savage to discuss the different types of edge and core analytics and use cases that utilize them, including data management and integration tools and techniques that provide the foundation for IoT analytics success.

DELL EMC WORLD, AUSTIN — October 20, 2016 — Eigen innovations Inc., announced the Eigen Quality Workbench this week, a new software product for their Intellexon® platform that optimizes quality control within industrial manufacturing. Designed to help manufacturers achieve true defect avoidance, the Eigen Quality Workbench revolutionizes the way manufacturers improve quality by overlaying the end-to-end production process to capture and analyze data with artificial intelligence to discover breakthroughs in operating efficiency.
“As manufacturing becomes more complex, many companies are struggling to enable a workforce that uses factory floor data to drive efficiency and productivity on a daily basis, which is a constant threat to their ability to remain competitive,” says Scott Everett, the company’s CEO. “The Quality Workbench fills a gap between this data, and the machines, by working with operators to discover new insights for efficiency on a continuous basis.”
The Quality Workbench emerged from a need Eigen saw with their customers and the broader market. Eigen is increasingly focused on providing solutions for automotive manufacturing and food processing, embedding their technology within Tier 1 and Tier 2 manufacturers, OEMs, and suppliers of industrial equipment throughout North America.
Eigen makes this announcement from Austin, Texas, where they are featured at Dell EMC World 2016, the company’s flagship event bringing together technology and business professionals to network, share ideas and help co-create a better future. In April of this year, Dell announced their Internet of Things Solutions Partner Program, including Eigen in the initial group of members.
“Dell believes ISVs are critical in building the bridge between the exciting industry potential of IoT and profitable market reality,” said Jason Shepherd, Director, IoT Strategy and Partnerships, Dell. “We value our partnership with Eigen Innovations and look forward to our continued collaboration.”

Starting on September 10, Chicago played host to the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). The biennial week-long event is the largest show of it’s kind in North America, and is sister show to the Hannover Messe. This year’s event drew over 115,000+ attendees and featured the latest technologies emerging in the world of manufacturing. Highlights included evolutions in additive manufacturing, composites, collaborative robotics, and advances in aerospace and automotive. Underlying much of the discussion was the the growing ubiquity of the Internet of Things, which is enabling many of the advances in today’s manufacturing technology.
This year also marked Dell’s inaugural participation at IMTS where they showed off their growing line of industrial-grade hardware devices, and IoT solutions, playing host to partners like IBM, SAP, Intel, SoftwareAG, and Intel.
Eigen was also featured among this group of partners, talking to participants about real-time quality control for manufacturing. At the show, Eigen demonstrated how the IoT can be used to optimize quality control in manufacturing, featuring a demonstration of real-time quality inspection, powered by Eigen Intellexon®, and tracked in Eigen’s newest Quality Workbench interface. Eigen’s Quality Workbench lets Quality Engineers diagnose and optimize quality control using real-time analytics and part-over-part variance analysis. Check out how Eigen optimizes real-time quality control in this Dell Solution Brief.
Eigen thanks Dell for the invitation to participate at IMTS and looks forward to IMTS 2018!
