Vodka and electronics – Solving visual inspection errors with AI


  • Ed Goffin, Senior Marketing Manager, Pleora Technologies
Human inspection is still an important part of the manufacturing process, but when we get tired or distracted we tend to make mistakes. This presentation will discuss how new visual inspection tools and AI apps are bringing automated decision-support to manual visual inspection tasks. In particular, the session will focus on how two manufacturers – a distillery and an electronics manufacturer – are using these tools in their operations. It will discuss how the distillery uses AI for in-process operator assistance and final quality control check on products before they are shipped. In the example of the electronics manufacturer, the session will highlight how the company uses AI decision-support alongside more traditional machine vision inspection and why collecting data from manual processes is important for their business.
