Teledyne DALSA Posted 06/08/2000
Waterloo, ON - DALSA (TSE: DSA), a leader in digital imaging, is pleased to announce its latest successful contract to supply E.I. Du Pont De Nemours & Company, Inc. (Du Pont) with advanced imaging solutions.
Du Pont recently awarded DALSA a development and manufacturing contract to combine 19 of DALSA's newest digital camera product, the Eclipse, with DALSA's MOTION VISIONÔ defect detection software. The completion of this contract will provide Du Pont with a complete inspection solution for their Circleville, Ohio, KaptonÒ film production facility. For DALSA, this opportunity represents revenue of approximately US $750,000.
DALSA's CEO, Dr. Savvas Chamberlain, remarked: "Our vision system, comprised of our latest image sensors, camera products, and processing software, will provide Du Pont with the ability to improve quality assurance, increase manufacturing output and, above all, provide real-time manufacturing process information which can be used for immediate manufacturing chemical process recipe adjustment. The new Circleville project is the seventh such installation that DALSA will have completed for Du Pont and its joint venture partners in North America and Japan. We are pleased to receive Du Pont's continued confidence in DALSA technology and products; this latest contract is another endorsement of the benefits that our products and services bring to industrial vision applications."
The Du Pont KaptonÒ product is a critical dielectric film used in high volume electronic circuit boards, industrial transformers, and many other electrical and electronic applications. The application of DALSA's image sensor, camera, and software technology to this inspection requirement allows Du Pont to perform real-time defect detection, classification, and feedback to the manufacturing process. Du Pont thus benefits from both improved product quality and a dramatic reduction in waste material.
DALSA expects the contract to be completed by the middle of 2001.
