With the acquisition of the Canadian software developer ORS, Comet Group reinforces its competencies in the areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data analytics and is implementing its strategy.

Boosting our growth strategy

Focusing on digital solutions is an essential part of the Comet Group’s and the division IXS’s strategy. It’s about offering services, that go beyond the normal inspection of components, to improve processes and increase yield for customers. ORS data processing capabilities will help IXS to implement their strategy.

Go beyond inspection by using data analytics

By being part of the Comet Group ORS will gain deeper insight in specific processes which IXS is supporting with their systems solutions. ORS' expertise in data analytics will further improve the processing of image data and make new things possible.

With the software dragonfly ORS brings in a proven machine learning capability. The software is already used in over 80 countries for demanding analysis jobs in material sciences, electronics and manufacturing. It can be further developed to meet the needs of Yxlon’s aspired markets.

Learn from each other and grow together

Both parties have known and collaborated successfully on different projects for the last 3 years. Being part of the same company, they can much better align priorities, learn from each other, grow together and create solutions that lead the way.
