Helmee Imaging Oy, a developer, manufacturer, and marketer of unique CSD imaging technology for surface inspection applications, has launched Helmee Imaging, Inc., a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary based in Cumming, Georgia. The new company will provide sales with technical and application support for its customers throughout North America.

"The customers we work with have increasingly demanding needs for surface quality inspection where traditional methods, such as cameras or human visual inspection, do not work reliably or quickly enough," said Juha Saily, regional development manager for Helmee Imaging Inc. "Our CSD technology offers higher resolution, more accurate inspection results and higher throughput than human visual inspection. It is the only in-process inspection technology that works on parts with complex geometries and mirror-like surfaces."

CSD® (Covered Stereo Deflectometry) is a patented machine vision technology that enables automated quality inspection of flat, curved, and complex parts with highly reflective and clear surfaces. CSD can detect virtually any type of microscopic and larger 2D and 3D defects. Applications include chrome-plated, painted, and PVD-coated parts, as well as polished and uncoated products made of glass, metal, and plastic. While CSD has uses in many different industries, Helmee’s primary focus is automotive parts, consumer electronics, and medical devices.
