GE Healthcare strives to develop new medical solutions that can form the basis for future health care. Image diagnostics is one of the core areas. On the team they have Tordivel AS which has been responsible for the development of a unique automatic inspection solution based on Scorpion Vision Software. The system is designed to detect faulty cassettes used for the production of PET contrast agent.
PET/CT scanning is currently the leading and most advanced imaging examination method available in medicine. It is a very useful and well documented tool, and provides new opportunities for more precise diagnostics in such areas as cancer. GE Healthcare AS supplies hospitals with the special contrast agent used in the study.

The You Tube Video shows the system in action.
We are exhibiting our fine range of Scorpion 3D Stinger Camera at @laser2000 stand at Vision 2014 in Stuttgart. We plan to preview the upcoming Scorpion Vision XI with improved 3D support, faster 3D image creation and even more accurate 3D stereo vision suitable for 3D Robot Vision and 3D Measurement.
New lower cost industrial IP-64 Scorpion 3D Stinger RPP Camera with 30 mm baseline
We are happy to announce our latest addition to the Scorpion 3D Stinger Camera series. The units is designed to be mounted on a robot and work in the toughest industrial environment 24/7. The Scorpion 3D Stinger cameras extract 3D information on moving objects. The compact size and smaller baseline makes it a replacement for 2D cameras where true 3D machine vision is needed in assembly verification and 3D object location.
The camera is designed to work at a distance of 100 – 400 mm with a corresponding 3D Field of View of typical range of 100 x 100 x 75 mm to 200 x 200 x 150 mm with an expected z-resolution of 0.1 to 0.3 mm.
A compact IP-64 Industrial Stereo Vision unit with built Scorpion Stinger Contral Card, two GigE Cameras, RPP – random pattern projection laser and high power led and a 30 mm baseline. The camera is compatible with Scorpion Compact Vision, Scorpion Vision Software and the unique One Push Calibration device for automatic, fast and accurate 3D calibration.
Mobile Drilling Robot
The 1st Place Winner was nLink, a Norwegian start-up focused on the construction industry and integrating a robotic drilling and measuring system for ceiling work. It relieves workers from overhead work involved with measuring and drilling ceilings.
From one of our more innovative Scorpion 3D Stinger Partners nLink. The company is located in Sogndal, Norway. The guys behind the company are Håvard Halvorsen and Tomas Hennige with master degrees from the NTNU, the technical university in Trondheim. Their intent is to make a change in the extremely hard task of drilling in concrete ceilings for the construction industry.
