Defect Detection

Defect Detection

Powerful and fast algorithms

IVS® leverages artificial intelligence (ai) to automatically find automotive product defects and anomalies as they happen, during the manufacturing cycle. We provide your production supervisors with real-time data at their fingertips, recognising yield drift, quarantining suspect products and keeping your management in the loop with real statistics – allowing you to deliver 100% automatically inspected product out of the door, with meaningful data behind it.

Precision inspection across the entire automotive manufacturing floor. Vision system cameras can be used at almost every stage of production, from single component checks for dimensional accuracy, through to complete car conformance to specification. From the smallest nut, up to the complete car – we allow you to deliver superior products with zero parts per million failures.

Complete Machine Vision Portfolio

Trusted technologies to automate better

IVS® offer an extensive portfolio of cameras, systems and solutions for all area of automotive manufacturing. Ranging from smart camera solutions and in-process inspection cells, through to fully-integrated robot inspection cells. Our systems are highly versatile and easy to set-up. 3D vision systems, 2D machine vision and multi-camera inspection are all supported within the IVS family.

Increase productivity, eliminate manual errors and improve the flexibility in your manufacturing cycle. Using machine vision provides workers with the opportunity to assume new, higher value roles and responsibilities within the organisation – leaving the automatic inspection, guidance and verification to the automated vision systems. All aspects of automotive manufacturing can benefit from applying machine vision automation, from process automation and manufacturing control, through to materials handling and storage. Check goods as they arrive, during manufacturing and as a final inspection before they leave the factory.

Factory Automation

Factory Automation

Make manual tasks automatic. Maximise quality and stop quality escapes.

We help in your race to automate more production processes by utilising industrial automation, robotics and vision systems. Automate traditional manual processes to minimise your takt time, increase quality and relive operators from mundane tasks which can be done by an automated process. Save time and labour costs.

Not only will our system help you automate better – our solutions allow to review the root cause of any problem by providing a complete historical record of every unit inspected. IVS solutions reduce days or weeks of forensic effort by detecting the source of faults quickly, rather than depending on idle data, manually produced reports, destructive teardowns, or time-consuming tests.

    More about automotive inspection systems

    Why do automotive manufacturers need to use machine vision?

    In the build of automotive vehicles even small malfunctions can have catastrophic consequences – safety is a critical element in the manufacturing process. When you consider an automobile can be made up of over 40,000 individual elements from tiny clips, inserts and bolts, through to larger components such as shafts, wheels and panels – it’s not surprising that the automotive industry strives for a parts per million failure rate in single figures. It isn’t easy for the producers to keep track of the quality of every part through manual means, relying on an operator to inspect thousands of parts isn’t a viable (or cost-effective) solution. To start they need to inspect the product, and secondly this information needs to be noted and stored in a way that it is traceable back to the point of production.

    Machine vision is now a standard technology applied in automotive manufacturing. It allows for the seamless automated inspection or guidance, coupled with the ability to save tangible, easily-recallable data. Vision systems worked at speed, don’t get tired, and don’t need a break – allowing continuous, repeatable results with known payback for the producers.

    How does machine vision integrate into automotive production processes?

    IVS systems support multi-protocol communication in the automotive industry. Industrial network connectivity is provided out-of-the-box to minimise time for integration and commissioning of the systems into automotive manufacturing processes. Real-time ethernet and fieldbus interfaces including Profibus, Modbus, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, CANopen, Ethernet Powerlink, Profinet, Ethernet IP, CC-Link and MQTT are all supported for quick and easy integration into modern automotive automation lines and cells.
