Per Aarsleff A/S, Pipe Technologies uses Eigen for Thermographic Quality Assurance

Per Aarsleff A/S, Pipe Technologies

Introduction

At Per Aarsleff A/S, Pipe Technologies, we strive to o er better value for our customers through cost reductions and stringent quality assurance at every stage of our production. As a market-leader in trench-less pipe renewal we focus on achieving this goal by continuous improvements on our in-house technologies.

In the manufacturing of cured-in-place-pipes (CIPP), airtightness is key! The CIPP-liners consist of multiple layers of woven polyester felts sewed together, where the end layer has a coated surface sealed with a plastic tape. This sealing must remain airtight both in regard to our impregnation processes and installation methods to ensure a high-end quality product for our customers.

Problem Overview

In order to ensure a uniform and standardized weld quality in our production, a thermographic quality control system was needed to reduce the necessity of visual inspection. Small irregularities in weld sizes and lateral movements in the material were challenges that needed to be solved in order to successfully implement a system into our production process.

Solution Overview

Eigen provided the solution to resolve these challenges by developing an algorithm through their Intellexon® software platform.

The software is programmed to process large amounts of data in real-time in order to provide immediate feedback to operators and ensure predetermined parameter thresholds are not exceeded.

Connecting one of FLIR’s fixed-mounted automation cameras to the platform captures up to 60 frames of high resolution digital thermal data per second, enabling a rich real-time view of exactly what is happening within the welding parameters.

The collaboration with Eigen will improve the quality of our CIPP manufacturing, reduce the need for visual quality inspection, and has given us new insights that we can use in other parts of our process.

Eigen Innovations returns from Cisco IoT World Forum with 3rd Place Win

For the 3rd year, Cisco has hosted the Internet of Things World Forum, one of the world’s première events focused on IoT innovation and thought leadership. The exclusive event attracts a who’s who of industry leaders from all over the world.  This year’s event included the Innovation Grand Challenge, a global competition for companies building innovative and disruptive technologies on the IoT.‎ Starting in June, the event attracted over 3000 companies from over 100 countries, with a series of elimination rounds leading to 6 finalists in November.‎  Eigen Innovations entered the competition in June, and survived all of the elimination rounds, securing a spot in the ‘Super Six’ of the Challenge on November 23, the only Canadian company remaining.

Being named a finalist earned Eigen an exclusive invitation to the IoT World Forum, held in Dubai from December 6-8.  The invitation came with the opportunity to pitch at the final round of the Challenge in front of an esteemed group of industry leaders for one of the top 3 prize winning spots.  The judges for the event were:

  • Mohammad Albataineh, Worldwide Sales, Internet of Things, IBM Dubai
  • Sujeet Chand, SVP and CTO, Rockwell Automation
  • Georg Kopetz, Executive Board Member, TTTech Comptertechnik AG
  • Maciej Kranz, VP, Corporate Strategic Innovation Group, Cisco
  • Abhi Kunte’, Director, Product Management, Predix/GE Digital
  • Whitney Rockley, Co-founder and Managing Partner, McRock Capital
  • Bola Rotibi, Creative Intellect Consulting
  • Faiyaz Shahpurwala, SVP Cloud Services/Industry Solutions, Cisco
  • Torsten Wolf, EMEA Service Head, IoT/UX/Mobile, SAP

‎Eigen’s pitch highlighted the unique technological innovation being created in their solution, but centered largely on how the technology connects to the user and operators in the manufacturing world. Eigen boasts a factory floor first philosophy in their approach to building solutions. ‎This approach brings tangibility to the innovation happening on the IoT, demonstrating how the ‘thought leadership’ being discussed at the IoT World Forum is having real-world impact within industrial applications.

The pitch resonated with the judges and audience at the event, and Eigen returns from the World Forum winning 3rd place win in the Innovation Grand Challenge. The Eigen team is thrilled to have earned this spot in the competition, and is honoured to have competed with the caliber of companies represented.
