Defects that occur on the factory floor have traditionally presented an ongoing as well as costly challenge for manufacturers. Now though, enhanced industrial computer vision solutions are becoming mainstream, as manufacturers deploy AI-enabled machine vision that is helping them to zero in on zero-defect manufacturing. By doing so, manufacturers have the ability to detect quality issues and machine malfunctions in real-time. The article that follows does an excellent job of detailing how smart IIoT companies are putting this technology to work.
Every manufacturer wants to obtain the highest quality throughout the production process. However, failures can occur in multiple ways, including human error, failure of the process itself, or malfunction of the equipment used on the factory floor.
Fortunately, the rise of Industry 4.0 has ushered in more intelligence and IoT automation in manufacturing, including smarter computer vision solutions that can help companies investigate, capture, monitor, and analyze industrial processes. One such company moving automated defect detection forward is Eigen Innovations. Based in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, it specializes in helping manufacturers realize zero defects by giving them real-time information about the quality of their products and their manufacturing process.
