Due to a shortage of skilled workers and rising labor costs, manufacturers are under pressure to automate processes relying on human senses. Omron’s FH Series vision system now includes advanced defect detection with artificial intelligence to mitigate these issues.
With the upgraded FH Series, Omron is helping manufacturers automate vision inspection via a lightweight, easily integrated solution. Omron’s FH Series vision system includes an AI-based inspection tool known as AK Fine Matching. It trains by reviewing images of various good products and builds a model. Then, AI Find Matching detects only the features not found on good products as defect.
Benefits of the FH Series with AI defect detection
Captures defects with human-like sensitivity
The AI Scratch Detection Filter highlights scratches on different surface types without needing to learn from images or adjust any parameters, offering manufacturers a ready-to-deploy solution.
Identifies good products like experienced inspectors
The FH Series determines acceptable variation tolerances using the AI Fine Matching tool that learns from non-defective product images to quickly acquire the “expertise” that inspectors develop over months of time.
Can be incorporated into any environment
Most high-end vision solutions require a similarly high-end environment, but Omron’s lightweight solution provides user-friendly processing items that are integrated into the FH Series hardware.
