What is a System Integrator?
“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”― Aristotle
System integration is key to creating solutions for manufacturers. System integration is an engineering process that joins together different subsystems or components to create one larger solutions system. Each component must be integrated, and by connecting these components together, a new functionality is created.
Integro Technologies is a Vision Systems Integrator specializing in machine vision technology.
System integrators utilize a wide-range of software and hardware to design and develop custom solutions for clients. Robotic arms, 360° pericentric lenses, a variety of cameras, computer-aided design programs, multiple sub-functions, and more all contribute to creating the most efficient and most effective system integration solution for manufacturers.
According to Wikipedia:
In engineering, system integration is defined as the process of bringing together the component subsystems into one system and ensuring that the subsystems function together as a system. In information technology, systems integration is the process of linking together different computing systems and software applications physically or functionally, to act as a coordinated whole…The system integrator brings together discrete systems utilizing a variety of techniques such as computer networking, enterprise application integration, business process management or manual programming.
One example of vision system integration is the Omniview 360° product inspection system. The Omniview uses four or five mounted cameras and stitches the images together to create a complete image of a cylindrical object’s surface. The Omniview is a combination of various components such as cameras, software, and other subsystems to create one inspection system.
System integration engineers need a broad range of skills, more of a breadth of knowledge which include experience in software, systems, software and hardware engineering, enterprise architecture, interface protocols, and generally, high-level problem solving skills.
Integro Technologies is a trusted leader in vision system integration. With over 330+ years of cumulative experience, the team at Integro is recognized as a worldwide resource for system integration needs.
