Ensuring products are correctly assembled — whether on an automated production line or in a manual manufacturing process — is critical to maintaining a manufacturer's reputation and keeping customers satisfied and safe. No consumer wants their new product to fall apart, stop working or cause an accident owing to missing, defective or badly fitted components.
Konica Minolta's Video Quality Inspection (VQI) solutions are helping companies improve their assembly quality inspection processes. Our VQI solutions combine our smart IoT-based Mobotix video cameras with FORXAI, our imaging IoT platform. FORXAI enables immediate AI-based processing of camera images and video — on site or in the cloud — to screen, monitor, measure and analyse against pre-defined thresholds or other criteria.
Among our customers are a white goods manufacturing company that uses our VQI solution to help ensure it delivers appliances that customers can rely on. Our solution checks that all component bolts are in place before the appliance's top cover is mounted; and verifies the quality and readability of the barcode on each appliance.
At the other end of the scale, an automotive manufacturer prevents workplace injuries and other dangerous situations by using a VQI solution to ensure semitrailers are correctly attached to crane heads before being moved.
Assembly Quality Inspection from Konica Minolta monitors any missing or incorrect bolts, screws, flanges, or any other essential manufacturing components on an assembly production line. It is an in-house developed solution based on FORXAI, Konica Minolta’s image IoT platform that accelerates the digital transformation of society together with customers and partners.
Konica Minoltas intelligent video system can solve problems in all areas: Ensuring safety in a factory unit, registering vehicles to detecting movement, communicating with the network or triggering alarms if necessary. The solution also allows you to analyse the customer behaviour.
