Partnering opportunity

Italian SME leader in the x-ray and ultrasounds technology sector is looking for partners with know-how in the field of artificial intelligence aimed to detect in automatic mode defects in mechanical parts under a technology cooperation agreement

Summary

Italian company founded in 1947 has developed a solid experience and competence in x-ray and ultrasound technology with applications in the medical, industrial and security market. It is looking for a partner in the field of x-ray image post-processing, with a strong know-how in artificial intelligence development aimed to detect in automatic mode various types of defects (e.g. porosity, cracks) in mechanical parts (e.g. aluminium casts, iron casts) under a technology cooperation agreement

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

The images to be analyzed must be in TIFF, grayscale and 16-bit format. The maximum size must be 4096x4096. The expertise sought consists of relevant knowledge and know-how in the field of x-ray image post-processing. In particular, the company is looking for partners with competencies and expertise in the analysis of digital images for the characterization of defects (porosity, cracks) in mechanical parts (ie aluminium casts, iron casts, polymers).

Partner sought

The company is looking for a partner in the field of x-ray image post-processing, with a strong know-how in Artificial intelligence development aimed to detect in automatic mode various types of defects in mechanical parts. This partnership - in the form of technical cooperation agreement - should bring to the development of a dedicated artificial intelligence software engineering library trained to recognize different types of defects in mechanical objects. The sought partner should be able to work in the international market and to guarantee strong and responsive support to train, optimize and interface with its x-ray system. The company has no preference in regards to the type and the size of the partner sought.

Description

The Italian company - founded in 1947 and located in northern Italy - is active in the field of x-ray and ultrasounds technology. It is among the leading manufacturers of x-ray and ultrasound equipment in three different sectors: medical, security and non-destructive testing (NDT). Scientific base and continuous development have always been at the base of the company’s vision. The radiology market for medical, security and industry is defined by high scientific and technical content, continuous innovation and rapid evolution. Security sector: it offers a complete range of products that, thanks to technologically advanced solutions in the field of detection of weapons, explosives, drugs contained in hand luggage, hold luggage and pallets, they ensure safety standards in line with the relevant European regulations. The product range covers both the airport market, with machines designed following the latest and most stringent European and American regulations, and the non-aviation market now focused on anti-terrorism systems. The range of products includes: • x-ray scanner for hand baggage airport checkpoints, with or without automatic detection of explosives • x-ray machines for hold baggage checks, with or without automatic detection of explosives • cargo x-ray machines for pallet and large package scanning • mobile x-ray systems • millimetre-wave machines for people scanning • devices for solid explosive trace detection Non-destructive testing: fluoroscopy is an NDT screening method that produces an image in real-time. It increases productivity for the screening of large batches of items. Ultrasound technology is widely used in metal, railway and automotive industries both as portable equipment as well as integrated automated systems. NDT product range includes: • Automatic UT (ultrasounds) systems for railway testing both during production and in-service • Complete fluoroscopy systems for castings testing with manual or automated piece management • Manual and automated UT systems for testing of steel and light alloy castings • Fully automated systems for production line integration • X-ray systems up to 450kV for fluoroscopy and radiology Medical radiology: the company has a complete range of products including a unique x-ray irradiator, digital multifunctional rooms and portable equipment, both traditional and equipped with digital detectors. The company is looking for technological partners with competencies and expertise in the analysis of digital images, particularly for the characterization of defects (porosity, cracks) in mechanical parts (ie aluminium casts, iron casts, polymers). The cooperation requested aims to accelerate and enhance the efficiency of the project, benefiting from another company complementary expertise and know-how. The company is opened to discuss the modalities of technical cooperation agreement

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.
