Pixargus GmbH, founded in 1999, develops, manufactures and sells systems for optical inline measurements and inspection of long products, such as profiles, tubing, tubes, webs and cables made of a great variety of materials. The systems are designed for inspection tasks in continuous production lines and on individual items.
Today, systems from Pixargus are in use in 24/7 manufacturing operations in industries as wide ranging as automotive, medical engineering, building and infrastructure as well as consumer goods.
The medium-sized company is a global “hidden champion” in optical inline quality inspection. Worldwide all major manufacturers of automotive rubber profiles use Pixargus systems for surface inspection and profile measurements. A relatively new mainstay of the company is the carbon composites and fiber market, where Pixargus systems provide inline inspection and measurements of continuous and sheet products made of carbon composites as well as carbon fiber roving. Also in medical engineering Pixargus has set new benchmarks with its inline surface inspection systems for medical tubing.
The Pixargus real-time image processing technology also formed the basis for the foundation of GoalControl GmbH and the goal-line technology of the same name, which proved highly successful in practice during the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
Pixargus is based in Würselen near Aachen/Germany. The company is active worldwide through its US branch and various international technical agencies.
