Optics at the service of the manufacturing industry

image alt

Optical technologies play a key role in manufacturing, providing accurate and efficient measurement and quality control tools.

Optical techniques, including microscopy, spectroscopy, photometry and imaging, are used to inspect materials, characterize surfaces, detect defects and measure dimensions with micron-level accuracy. Lasers are also used for cutting, marking and welding materials, while machine vision systems automate manufacturing processes. Optical technologies are essential for guaranteeing product quality, improving the production process efficiency and reducing manufacturing costs.

Our customer testimonials

See what INO customers have to say about our services and solutions.

We were looking for a group of experts capable of developing an absolute optical positioning system for our cylinders. At INO, we found a team with solid expertise, and the ability to meet our high-level challenge, while maintaining a good pace for the project.

Luc Mainville, Vice President Innovation Product Development Mailhot Industries

INO provided us with state-of-the-art expertise that CCR lacked. In addition, INO’s desire to teamwork with CCR and deliver a quality product made this project a success. The operators and CCR’s management team are very pleased with the master plate monitoring system.

Anne Tellier, Senior Project Engineer Affinerie CCR

Thanks to INO we’ve been able to develop a new part inspection system. When these parts leave our plant, there are no imperfections. We’re talking zero-defect. A remarkable feat!

Richard Guimont, President Liberty Spring
