Since the manufacturing sector in the Indian economy counts about 17% at current, it indeed is prominent. However, Manufacturers, these days are mounted with tremendous pressure to provide quality as well as speedy production. If done in silos, it can be time-consuming, especially the quality check part, which demands more labor as compared to a Vision Intelligence System.
Quality control is what many manufacturers struggle with. The traditional belief of quality check as a labor-intensive task blocks the countless opportunities crossing their paths. These days, one of the key issues contributing to the issue is a labor shortage. This pandemic has driven the gap to the next level, mounting existing employees with additions to the scope of their jobs assigned.
Other than this, traditional quality inspections might come up with issues like:
- Monitoring different parts and materials makes it harder to handle quality control for complicated products
- Inability to identify the distinct spectrum of colors.
- Human eyes might miss minute errors like small scratches, dust particles, and so on.
- Lack of resources and time might compromise product quality.
What is a Vision Intelligence System, and How Does it Work?
Vision Intelligence System is a product designed by Trident Information Systems specifically for manufacturers. It automatically detects product defects like scratches, dust particles, broken pieces, etc. straight from the conveyor belt with least or no human interference. But how does it work?
- Our computer vision engineers first understand the issue/customer requirements.
- Then they collect data in the form of images, followed by developing algorithms and models.
- They then test the hypothesis / validate the models.
- After testing and finalizing every step they either offer POC (Proof of Concept) or proceed for onsite implementation (according to the customer’s requirement).
Trident’s Vision Intelligence System Covers seven industries, i.e., automotive, retail and FMCG, packaging and printing, pharmaceutical, glass, laminate, and cement.
Automotive Industry: Automotive manufacturers can classify different product variants based on color, shape, design, size, and so on. It also detects visual defects like a dent, scratch, burr, chip, etc. Vision Intelligence System can read barcode labels and 2D barcodes directly from the marked parts, verify labels as well as direct part marks. Additionally, they can detect wrinkles, dents, cracks, and piston defects.
Retail and FMCG Industry: With the help of this technology, you can check the structural quality, operational quality, and dimensional accuracy within seconds. You can assure accurate ingredients and standard quality. You may also detect foreign particles like dust, stones, insects, little animals, and so on.
Printing and Packaging Industry: With VIS, you can spot packaging defects such as improper passing, irregular packing, torn parts, and so on in FMCG products. Enable high-speed detection straight on conveyors, spot missing components, read QR codes and barcodes, classify products, and a lot more with optical and thermal camera vision.
Glass Industry: Being one of the most brittle materials, glass needs extra care. Identify inaccurate logos, scratches, breakages, cracks, air bubbles, etc. Ensure all the parts are glued properly and check if the logo has been printed as it should be with VIS.
Laminate Industry: You no longer have to deal with the risk of dispatching defective sheets. Ensure accurate chemical composition during the mixing process. Identify laminate placements, pick-up operations, machine alerts. VIS also helps identify raisin spots, dust, design defects, and mosquito defects.
Pharmaceutical Industry: Manufacturers of medical devices, bioscience products, and pharmaceuticals need cost-efficient technology to check the quality. You can control the packaging quality, check fusion bottles, and track your products more precisely with the Visual Inspection in Manufacturing.
Vision Intelligence System for Employee Safety
Vision Intelligence System for Employee Safety ensures safety of your employees. It has two segments dedicated to the section, i.e., Face Mask Detection and Safety Gadget Inspection. In both cases, the system spots employees not adhering to safety standards.
The Face Mask detection solution (FMD) comprises two main branches:
- Mask Detection – which detects employees wearing masks.
- Face Detection – The system recognizes faces not having masks on and maps his face followed by the employee’s details in the database.
The employer can also conduct contactless attendance: when a person comes to the institute, wait for a little while and let the camera capture their image. This solution then recognizes the employee’s face and marks his attendance. It considers the first entry as the arrival time and the last entry as the departure.
The other one is Safety Gadget Inspection, where the system identifies if the employee carries safety equipment that has been allotted to him. It detects partial compliance as well such as – no helmet, employees without a harness, and so on.
Manual Inspection is bound to limitations. It is a lot more labor-intensive as well as time-consuming as compared to automatic defect detection. Trident Information Systems offers a robust Vision Intelligence System reinforcing manufacturers with automatic technology detecting defects more precisely while demanding least or no human interaction. Thus, filling the labor shortage without burdening existing employees. Contact us for further information or a demo.
