Industrial automation vendors have historically been hindered from accessing the visual inspection market because of its complex solution requirements – until now.
German-Israeli start up Inspekto has changed this state of affairs as its Plug and Inspect technology product, the Inspekto S70, revitalises vision inspection back to the industrial automation family.
Inspekto launched the first entry in the Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV) category, the INSPEKTO S70, at VISION 2018.
The product now opens up the multi-billion dollar inspection market to industrial automation vendors, which previously required long integration times to put a vision inspection project in place, choose lighting, lenses, filters, software and cameras, as well as deliver design, fixing, installation and planning.
In contrast, the S70 is self-learning, self-setting and self-adjusting, meaning it can be easily installed by the plant’s own workforce within 45 minutes, directly on the shop floor.
“AI-powered devices, that are easily implementable, customisable and autonomous will dominate the industrial automation market in the 2020s,” said Harel Boren, CEO and co-founder of Inspekto.
“These powerful qualities can be found in the INSPEKTO S70, the only stand-alone product for visual QA on the market. Finally, vision inspection can return to the industrial automation family.”
According to Grand View Research, the global vision inspection market is expected to reach $16.39 billion by 2022.
“Industrial automation vendors will now have access to an untapped, unclaimed, and highly promising business territory, for the first time in history,” concluded Boren.
