Increase Efficiency | Reduce Production Delays | Minimise risk 


Quality control in manufacturing, logistics, warehouse and similar environments is a critical but expensive and time-consuming process. In a complex or high-speed environment, human inspectors may struggle to keep pace, or may become distracted or fatigued — potentially leading to defects, anomalies and other issues being missed.

As a result, defective or improperly packaged products can get shipped, industrial processes can incur downtime, and worker safety can even be compromised.

Maintain consistently high standards with video-based inspections. With an intelligent video-based solution you can make visual quality inspection a much more consistent, reliable process. At Konica Minolta we've developed Visual Quality Inspection (VQI) solutions based on smart IoT-based Mobotix video cameras combined with FORXAI, our imaging IoT platform. FORXAI enables immediate AI-based processing of camera images and video — on site or in the cloud — enabling visual inspection of any production, logistics, warehouse or other industrial process.

Our VQI solutions are designed to take over the task of constant monitoring from human inspectors, and provide more consistency than the naked eye.

We work with our customers to understand what thresholds to measure against when identifying defects, and customise the built-in algorithm accordingly. A VQI solution can be trained to detect a wide range of issues and anomalies — such as scratches, cracks, tears, holes, poor seals, missing components, dirt, leaks or damp patches, and foreign objects. When an issue is detected, the solution can send or sound an alert in real time. Alternatively, it can be integrated with your existing systems and equipment to automate an immediate action, such as removing a defective item from the production line.

As a result, organisations experience less production downtime, fewer product returns and less waste; and maintain safer working environments.

1. What are the characteristics of smart video cameras?

Smart video cameras, such as our IoT-enabled Mobotix range, combine visual, thermal, audio and sensor data to enable reliable, consistent visual quality inspection. Mobotix cameras are robust and durable (no moving parts), consume very little power, deliver exceptional image quality, and enable data analysis. With 360 hemispherical or 180 degree panoramic views, there are no blind spots, so a large area can be covered by fewer cameras.

2. How secure are Mobotix video cameras?

By maintaining software development and testing in our own secure facility in Germany, Konica Minolta leads the industry in cybersecurity for video surveillance ecosystems. Our hardware and software products are regularly tested by independent third-party digital security experts to assess and confirm their ability to protect against cyberattacks. In 2021, the leading German institute for penetration tests, SySS GmbH, recertified the Mobotix 7 intelligent video platform and Mobotix Mx6 security cameras, confirming their high standard of cybersecurity.
