FMM: Offline Inspection of Steel Sheets Featured

Background of business problem/challenge

Each Blank is inspected by an operator manually at the offline inspection stations, taking roughly 20 secs to inspect per side of Blank. Although the operator is able to identify all the defects, this process of manual inspection causes operator fatigue. Moreover, this process is very time consuming, tedious and inefficient process resulting in low productivity.

Commercial inspection systems are costly and not feasible to install in multiple processing lines, as the volumes do not justify the high capital investment.
