Metal fabrication processes are prone to defects, some hardly visible to the human eye, often not suitable for manual inspection. Furthermore, manual inspection is time consuming and the results are often inconsistent. AI based visual inspection, on the other hand, offers not only economic benefits but also improved quality and consistency.

PEKAT VISION has already been successfully deployed in different production steps of metal fabrication, from input material inspection, up to assembly and packaging verification. Its reliable visual inspection based on advanced deep-learning algorithms and neural network easily finds anomalies and detect and classifies defects, including cracks, scratches, sand inclusions and blowholes, corrosion defects, stains, and many other defects or imperfections.

Chain Anomaly Detection

PEKAT VISION Anomaly Detector module is ideal for detecting defects on a metal chain. Because of the variety of defects that can occur, the anomaly detector, i.e. a module trained only on defect free images, has been opted for in the image above

Surface Defect Detection of Iron Casting

In the image above, the Surface Detection module searches for anticipated defects of iron casting. Defects consist mainly of various sizes of dents, easily identified by PEKAT VISION

Surface Scratches Identification

Both, the Anomaly Detector and Surface Detector modules, can be used to identify surface defects such as scratches, dents, paint defects, etc. Their selection depends on circumstances, including lighting conditions, material structure & variety of products

Brake Disc Inspection

Safety Critical visual Inspection with PEKAT VISION detects cracks and other defects that could lead to increased noise level, wear and tear, or even cause a safety hazard. PEKAT VISION Detector module has been used in this case

Optical Character Recognition

PEKAT VISION’s OCR module extracts various flat or embossed characters, symbols, and strings of text from a variety of surfaces including stamped part numbers, serial numbers, batch information etc., even when they are barely visible to the human eye

Inspection of Bearing Elements

The Surface Detector module is also well suited for inspection of bearing elements as shown in the image above. Early identification of defective parts reduces the likelihood of malfunction of assembled units, reducing scrap and costly rework

Detection of Structural Defects in Metal

PEKAT VISION detects material defects in machined metal parts before further processing
