Defect Detection

ML-Powered Visual Quality Inspection

Integrate machine learning-powered defect detection into your operator workflows with off-the-shelf cameras and no-code configuration.

  • Error-Proof Inspections

    Ensure only high-quality pass inspections and reject non-conformances in seconds

  • In-process Inspections

    Catch defects earlier with confidence to save time and reduce costs on rework

  • Edge Execution

    Get the power of cloud-based machine learning features without the latency

  • No-Code

    Quickly set up trained models without coding experience

Why Integrated ML Visual Quality Inspection?

With constant changes, agility is critical. Implementing an integrated, human-centric solution alleviates:

  • Production Bottlenecks

    Lengthy quality inspections ensure no defects reach the customer, however, they also slow production.

  • Operator Error

    Physical and mental fatigue can lead to accepting poor items and rejecting good ones, resulting in risk and waste.

  • Knowledge Loss

    Training new operators to discern quality products takes time and is costly.

What does an AI-enabled Visual Quality Inspection look like with Tulip?

  • Defect Detection

    Use an AI model to recognize defects, anomalies, errors, and issues with objects and alert operators to perform a closer inspection

  • Defect Classification *

    Determine how many defects are present by type of defect

  • Defect Counting *

    Determine how many defects are present by type of defect

  • Defect Measurement *

    Measure the objects to quantify how significant a defect is on an object

  • Defect Localization *

    Identify xyz coordinates to specify the where the defect is located

  • Discrete Manufacturing

    Ensure PCBs, metal fittings, and other components are free from surface defects with Tulip Vision. Cameras can consistently sort high-quality products with high precision, even if the defects are on a very tiny scale.

  • Life Sciences

    Control packaging to comply with strict regulations. Keep operators safe by detecting all of the proper PPE is worn correctly prior to handling hazardous substances.

  • Food and Beverage

    Easily inspect high-mix production for faulty lids, proper labels, and contents to improve quality, safety, and consistency.
