Introducing Australia’s First National Vision-Solutions Firm

Friday, September 02, 2011 by Matthews Intelligent Identification

iQVision is Australia’s first dedicated national vision-inspection solutions company.

Launched at the beginning of July, the company brings together Australian Machine Vision’s (AMV) extensive experience with vision solutions, and Matthews Intelligent Identification’s systems-integration capabilities and project-management competence.

It provides reliable, robust, vision-inspection solutions to Australian manufacturing industries, establishing then automating objective quality processes.

Ken Razga, iQVision’s MD, says: “This reduces rework and wastage, making the packaging process leaner and more reliable, hence optimises profits for manufacturers.”

Lester Nichol, Matthews’ MD, says: “iQVision has the unique advantage of delivering vision solutions coupled with iDSnet as the controlling software. So it not only checks code presence, formation, label position and so on, but can ensure error-free coding as well as performance and efficiency reporting via iDSnet Manager.

“iQVision is the only company that can deliver vision solutions integrated with PCM [Package Code Management] software to service and support customers Australia wide. This is a huge advantage for manufacturers with plants in more than one state.”

The Matthews-affiliated company works closely with Matthews on projects where vision inspection is needed, and also operates directly with customers when required.

Mr Razga says, “As well as developing internal skill sets within Matthews’ technical service team, iQVision is developing and maintaining a wide OEM partner network to service the Australian and New Zealand markets.”

Mr Nichol says iQVision extends Matthews’ technology portfolio of product-ID technologies. “It’s a natural fit for Matthews because our core business is about product identification, and vision systems are all about product identification and inspection, mainly for quality purposes. iQVision is not about selling a box, it’s about providing a solution, which is exactly what Matthews is about. The company sits very well with our project methodologies, how we deliver our projects to our customers and our software integration skills with iDSnet.”

Ken Razga says, “It’s about offering customers additional value-add products to help them optimise profitability. Developments in the technology have now made it accessible to small and medium-sized businesses.”

iQVision is headquartered in Rowville, Victoria, along with Matthews.
