Automated Quality Control

We automate the jobs related to the quality control in the manufacturing

What and how?

So far, our focus has been from various sectors mainly on the wood industry. Technologically we are using cameras and 3D lasers for capturing the material, applying additionally detection software that has been developed to artificial intelligence.

All solutions are built by us according to the customer needs and the choice of technology is made according to the conditions and requirements.

Why?

In order to stay competitive in a globalizing world, contemporary manufacturing needs an effective quality control. Until today, manual labor by workers has fulfilled this role. For example, in the wood industry, where several workers typically sit by the line and check the correctness of the board coming from the moulder, or in the metal industry, where an engineer uses a precision protractor to measure each part separately. However, the increasing cost of labor is gradually making manufacturing more expensive. Also, there is a constant pressure on the industry to improve the quality - unfortunately the human factor causes a lot of errors and instability in the quality.

In recent decades, detection solutions have developed rapidly - modern quality control is already largely a software solution. The software world, with its innovative technologies, offers industry contemporary opportunities that were not available in the past. Software solutions make it possible to replace the previously used quality determinations with several times more efficient solutions.
With our experienced team, we bring these technologies to the industry and offer complete solutions for the quality control.

Our Solutions and Projects

So far, we have provided majority of the solutions to the wood industry.
Some examples of our automated quality control projects:

Quality control of the wooden slat

In the process of quality control of the wooden slat, it is important to identify even the smallest defects: cracks, holes, branches, cracks, glue points, etc. In this example, the wood is less than 10cm wide and defects are detected with a scale of less than 1mm. We designed and delivered both the device and the software.

Planed board

In case of determination of the quality class of the planed board – the detection of the defects must be completed first (different types of knots – light knot, dark knot, rotten knot) cracks and splits, bark, length and thickness of the resinous, in total more than 20 different defects – only thereafter the determination of the class can be done.

Detection of the annual rings’ direction

Detection of the annual rings’ direction - we have created the software solution and supplied the equipment that can be used to detect the direction of annual rings on wood. In the manufacturing, the board is turned according to the annual rings.

Glue controlling

We have developed the detection software and supplied our customers with the line for glue inspection, which checks whether enough glue has been applied to the surface of the parts.

Precision measurement of the log upon the purchase

We have developed our own 3D module and various methods of measurement. We calculate diameters, length, volume, curvature. In addition, if needed, we can detect the thickness of the bark.

Measurement of the load capacity

We have designed a complete solution for measuring the volume of the load of sawdust and wood chips. Our solution is based on the image of 3D cameras, on the basis of which the load volume in cubic meters is automatically calculated.


How to proceed?

Please contact us! We will come to visit your site and specify the task in more detail. In more complicated cases, if required we will launch first a pilot project.
And we will implement for you an automated quality control system at your workstation or line!
