The Client specializes in industrial vision-based software and has over a decade of experience in this domain. The solution is designed for automated quality control in manufacturing processes with Machine Vision and Artificial Intelligence.
From a business perspective, our solution had to deal with the following challenges manufacturers face:
Technically, the complexity of the project was about:
Targeting devices were image-based barcode readers with high-resolution sensors. They are internationally used in applications across industries, such as automotive, electronics, intralogistics, catering, packing, document processing, and healthcare
Every product goes through various stages of quality control. If the manufacturing process is streamlined, it is more likely the product will meet the set quality standard. The machine vision allows obtaining real-time-data from the shop floor and automates quality inspection. The systems are running smoothly in the field with virtually no maintenance and downtime.
We created the User Interface client application that provides reading device configuration for Stand Alone and Master/Slave configurations. It is installed in a desktop application and runs on Windows-based PCs (usually laptops). The connection is established through the Ethernet TCP/IP interface. It also provides visual monitoring of images stored in an Image Database, either locally on the device or a local or remote PC.
The solution allows manufacturers to tap into Machine Vision and AI's potential to automate quality control, get data insights from the software, and thus significantly improve production processes. The automated quality assurance enables better management of increasing product range and shortening time to market cycle.
