Our team

We improve manufacturing by giving our customers the ability to measure every component in real-time.

About us

We improve manufacturing by giving our customers the ability to measure every component in real-time. Sample controls can only indicate that there is a problem in production. 100% inspection will allow you to diagnose the problem and target the underlying issue. Data is the key to Zero Defect Manufacturing and Industry 4.0.

Our story

Founded in 2018, we are the commercialization of long-term academic research led by Mikael Sjödahl at Luleå University of Technology. Our technology has been developed with direct input from OEM and Tier 1 automotive companies based on the needs of the industry.

We are based in Visby, on Gotland; a Swedish island in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Our team has diverse but complimentary backgrounds that allow us to quickly adapt our hardware and software to fit your needs from problem to solution. Half of our team is in Visby and the other half in Luleå, while our customers are spread throughout Sweden and the rest of Europe.
