VQC Industry

Product process optimization by means of a system for visual quality control - VQC Industry.

The solution, based on smart cameras, picks up flaws on the fly and eliminates all the imperfections of manual or mechanical quality control performed on the production line.

How does it work?

LEARNING PHASE

using good and
bad samples

PRODUCTION PHASE

up to 7000 checks
per hour

REAL TIME ALARMS

The possibility of detecting problems and triggering alarms with no delay.

THE SYSTEM COLLECTS THE DATA PROVIDED BY VIDEO CAMERAS ON EVERY STAGE OF PRODUCTION

Production is carried out with surface control, object recognition, component detection, and part identification.

CONSTANT NEURAL NETWORK TRAINING

Deep learning with regard to the production line is based on

teaching machines and devices involved to perform an activity people find instinctive – learning by example. Multilevel neural networks let visual solutions emulate human behavior when solving a problem, such as counting elements or verifying component quality. This way the systems become capable of recognizing images, noticing trends, and “understanding” subtle differences between proper and defective objects.

IMAGE PROCESSING AND FAULT DETECTION

A constantly self-improving system recognizes elements it was taught to perceive as faults and gives a warning in real time. Using cloud technology and Google’s BigQuery data warehouse, it is possible to process huge amounts of various data at once.

ADVANCED ANALYTICS

Reports and dashboards are generated based on up-to-date data as it is collected in real time. You are given information on all anomalies and unusual behavior the system detects, a perfect solution for management personnel of all large distribution chains or multi-department companies.

System implementation in a few steps:

DATA
ANALYSIS

We analyse your production process, verify areas to improve or optimise, and estimate potential savings the system implementation will bring.

SOLUTION
PROPOSITION

You receive the project outline drafting the effect of the implementation on your production process.

Proof
of concept

We build a model of a neural network in accordance with your project’s specifications. We conduct the model’s training based on trial quality tests.

VQC STATION
INSTALATION

We install an analytics VQC Station and data processing devices. Installation does not interfere with production processes, nor does it impair the interiors’ design.

TRAINING AND SUPPORT

We support you throughout the solution’s implementation and usage.

Why VQC Industry?

FLEXIBILITY

VQC Industry performs various types of visual quality control.

COST REDUCTION

VQC Industry adapts quality control to production changes.

ASSURE QUALITY

Artificial intelligence performs much better than people in detecting defects.

SPEED

Up to 7000 checks every hour – even fast production lines can be controlled constantly.

SALES INCREASE

VQC Industry increases quality, which influences the pricing, as a result improving the market position. The system cooperates with the existing production line and integrates itself with the with the end-to-end quality assurance or Industry 4.0 for clients, to allow the highest possible ROI.

INTEGRATION

The solution works perfectly with quality control and production management systems used at the site, so there is no need to change them – the system integrates seamlessly with the working environment and can be seen as its upgrade.

SCALABILITY

Thanks to cloud solutions used within the system, it can be scaled according to actual needs, such as the current number or size of production lines, with no limitations.

RELIABILITY

The system eliminates the problem of human errors and subjectivity in quality control and verification.
