Make the Change
Defining a New Category with Autonomous Machine Vision
Adding Autonomous Machine Vision to manufacturing will render traditional machine vision obsolete.
In the past 20 years electro-optics, computer vision and AI have advanced in leaps and bounds. The advances in these technologies have now enabled a substantial change to the Machine Vision market. By definition, such Autonomous Machine Vision systems require only a fraction of the cost, effort and time to install and run. More importantly, it requires no external systems integrators to prepare, set-up and run. The new Inspekto S70 system gives the QA manager complete independence in setting and controlling QA in the facility. This means they can accurately, affordably and immediately inspect products at every point on the production line. The immediacy of installation and the high affordability of such systems enables Total QA, meaning that QA can be incorporated at every stage of the production line, using the very same QA system, with no need to tailor a new project for each location, nor use any new lenses, lighting or cameras. Simply set the QA system in place, mark your areas of interest using a mouse, and go. This way, a production line inspection system can be set up in a few hours, at a fraction of the cost and effort of Machine Vision solutions. In addition, low costs and immediacy enable QA Managers to fit Machine Vision QA to many more locations on production lines, identifying defects in production as soon as they occur – leading to minimum scrap and higher yields. The Autonomous Machine Vision system Inspekto S70 offers powerful quality assurance capabilities in a small, versatile, practical package. It can be installed straight out of the box in minutes and at ten per cent of the cost of traditional machine vision systems. It offers a simple user interface that means no external systems integrator is required at any step of the process – there is no need to select cameras, lenses or lighting. Across Europe, leading industrial firms like Mahle, commanding many hundreds of industrial plants in a variety of industries, are installing Plug&Inspect driven QA systems to address many hundreds of types of products, materials, handling-methods and inspect millions of products every day.
