Automatic Quality Control

meets Artificial Intelligence

  • One software for analyzing all forms and materials

  • IQ-Capture: Easy exchange of hardware

  • IQ-Analysis: Intuitive creation of test plans

  • Detection of  small defects – even on highly varying (complex) forms and textures

  • Only few pieces required for training the software


Demonstration with workpieces made from plastic and metal

On a cable gland made from plastic (left) and metal (right), respectively, scratches (texture deviation) as well as deformations (shape deviation) are being applied. The system then automatically inspects the entire surface of the individual workpiece. The IQ-Analysis module provides a graphical interface for the results, whereby blue marks a texture deviation, red a shape deviation and green defect-free areas. One can see that the different damages are clearly detected by the system.

Evaluation module test run

The two videos show the different images taken at the test run and the corresponding evaluation results for one more faulty cable gland, respectively. For both plastic and metal workpieces, the system reliably identifies the scratches and deformations distributed over the surface of the workpieces.

Evaluation module training phase

The videos show camera images as well as analysis results of some correct and faulty workpieces used for training the system. Despite significant variations, such as in the thread area, the system automatically detects the natural variability within the workpieces during the learning process, but at the same time detects subtle errors / deviations inside the thread area, such as splintering (plastic) or displaced positioning of the threaded screws (metal).
