Defect Detection System

A platform powered by deep learning technology that identifies surface imperfections with speed, reliability, and precision.

Smart Inspection in Seconds

The Defect Detection system quickly identifies defective or anomalous defects on complex surfaces using deep learning technology and advanced machine vision, helping manufacturers reduce costs and meet consumer quality expectations.

While traditional machine vision systems use rules-based algorithms and require precise defect definitions, deep learning software learns from images of good and bad parts, reducing the time needed to specify defects and respond to changing requirements.

The system uses custom lighting solutions and fixturing, and can be combined with advanced material handling to enable rapid surface defect detection and qualification.


Deep Learning

Featuring deep learning technology, the system rapidly identifies surface defects on complex surface (specular, shiny, rough, matte, etc.) using advances machine vision.


Flexible Design

The platform is flexibile and can be easily adapted for standalone applications or used within an advanced manufacturing inline application.


Advanced Material Handling

Rapid, non-marring placement and handling of products or parts enable the platform to be used for high-throughput applications.

Choosing the Right Lighting for High Speed Inspection

Lighting and timing are key factors when measuring parts in high-speed motion. By using short bursts of high-intensity lighting, the vision system effectively freezes motion for inspection.

Smart Cosmetic Defect Detection Increases Productivity

Using deep learning, smart machine vision systems can inspect complex surfaces and parts for cosmetic defects without months of intensive coding, increasing manufacturing productivity, throughput, and quality.

Speed Wins in Contact vs. Non-Contact Surface Profiling

When efficiency matters in surface morphology inspection, non-contact, optical methodologies provide the same measurement results as a conventional contact profiler but in a fraction of time.
