Quality Control & Visual Inspection

Quality Control & Visual Inspection

Whether for automobile chassis, printed circuit boards, prescription lenses or batteries-products need to be inspected to confirm they meet a range of statutory and contractual quality standards before they can be delivered to the customer. Currently, quality control standards are often upheld manually, requiring extensive manpower and domain expertise. Maintaining consistency across quality control personnel and processes while maintaining operational efficiency can be challenging.

Our Solutions

We apply machine vision to high-performing visual inspection systems that combine hardware and software to deliver identification, measurement, detection and location functions. These systems enable manufacturing lines across industries to achieve consistent, scalable, and efficient quality control.
