InspecVision Ltd. was established in March 2003 to develop a range of precision inspection machines for industrial applications. The founder of the company, Dr. Jan Antonis, carried out advanced research in computer vision systems at Queens University Belfast and saw there was a gap in the market for a system which could measure parts quickly and easily. Sales of the Planar inspection system, for quality control and reverse engineering applications, began in 2005. InspecVision products are now sold in over 30 countries worldwide.

The company was honoured with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade in April 2021 for its outstanding export performance.

InspecVision was among the winners at the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM)’s Ireland Marketing Awards on November 9th, 2018. We were awarded winner of the category Most Marketing Impact on a Small Budget, sponsored by Ulster University Business School.

Planar 2D

The system can be used for very quickly measuring or reverse engineering flat parts which have been manufactured on laser, plasma and water jet cutting systems as well as punched and some stamped parts. We have been supplying the Planar system to the sheet metal industry for over ten years during which time we have consulted with many major manufacturers to fully understand the requirements expected from our measuring system and integrating these into the Planar.

There are Planar machines installed and operating in more than 30 countries worldwide and the list of countries is growing. Planar customers range from small job shops to multibillion dollar turnover companies covering almost every industry that uses sheet metal such as electronics & communication industries, automotive and aerospace.


Opti-Scan 3D

Opti-Scan 3D uses a high speed, high resolution industrial camera and an LED DLP projector to scan the surfaces of an object. Patterns of light are beamed from the projector onto the part, these patterns are recorded by the camera and used to create surface measurements. InspecVision achieve high levels of automation by adding a rotational table and tilting mechanism. This arrangement has been carefully chosen to create a viewing hemisphere which allows scans to be acquired from all visible surfaces of the component. The rotational table has a ring of reference markers which locate the table relative to the scanner. This removes the need for high precision, expensive, delicate, moving parts which would need to be recalibrated and maintained. The result is an unprecedented level of accuracy and automation. The system can inspect most 3D parts by simply placing the part on the table and scanning a bar code, or clicking a button.
