Improve Production Quality with Visual Inspection AI






Run on-premises

Deploy high-performance inspection models at the network edge or on your factory floor.


Short time to value

Deliver significant ROI by reducing inspection costs, rework, and scrap and improving key quality metrics (e.g. escape rate, overkill rate, and yield).


Superior AI technology

Our top-ranked computer vision and machine learning technology lets you take on the most challenging inspection tasks.




Purpose-built, deep learning algorithm-based models for high-precision manufacturing inspection

Assembly inspection

Detects even the most subtle defects at various stages of the assembly process (wrong, misplaced, missing, rotated, or deformed components).


Assembly inspection

Cosmetic inspection

Locates even tiniest and most complex defects (dents, scratches, cracks, deformations, etc.) on any kind of surface.


Cosmetic inspection

Scale on-premises

Run models right on your shop floor with easily deployed Docker containers. Models are trained to meet your production quality requirements for escape and overkill rates.


Scale on-premises

Quick start capability

Start building models with only a few labeled images. Active learning will automatically suggest additional images for the operator to label and further improve the model’s performance.
