What is twip all about? How did you come up with the idea?
David: twip is a supplier for 3D measurement solutions that can be used for automation process in manufacturing. We developed the idea while we were working at the University of Stuttgart. As members of the institute staff, we received a lot of requests for measurement solutions that can be implemented into fabrication and manufacturing.
“Digital Disruption“ – that’s the motto of this year’s CODE_n CONTEST. What makes your solution innovative, what makes it disruptive?
David: The innovation of our product is a combination of many details. Nevertheless, the biggest and most outstanding is the small size and low weight. We were able to realize the compact design due to the implementation of a new measurement approach: The use of a microlens disc in our special setup. With the reduction of size and weight of 3D measurement systems, the cornerstone for the movement from these measurements technique out of the lab into production is set. And with this aim in mind, a complete change of quality assurance is possible! More…
