Inspections are a crucial part of the operations of many industrial sectors. Conducting regular, thorough examinations help to ensure reliable equipment performance, worker safety and product quality.
Robotics is playing an increasingly central role in conducting inspections. Today, robots can inspect manufacturing equipment, pipelines, buildings, transportation systems and much more. Automation capabilities are improving, and the costs of these technologies are falling, enabling more companies to take advantage of the benefits they provide.
Typical Applications Include:
- Assembly Check
- Label Verification
- Defect Detection
- Packaging Inspection
- Cosmetic Quality Check
Many of these automated inspection systems use artificial intelligence, or AI, technology. In an approach called deep learning, for instance, you can train a neural network by inputting a large volume of examples of what a standard piece of equipment looks like and what a damaged one looks like. The system can use this information to identify damage during real-world use. Robots can also use artificial intelligence technology to learn to navigate industrial facilities and avoid obstacles.
Reliance Automation have partnered with best in class providers for inspection hardware – be it 2D or 3D. We also have a wealth of experience to help you decide what type of Vision system you need that will fulfil your needs reliably and represent the best return on investment.
We can also offer the services of our partner Viska Systems and their Visable software solution. Visable is a robotic inspection solution that makes it easy to program robots with cameras to perform automated inspection with human level perception.
