Kitov’s technology focuses on the automated planning of quality inspection, the quality inspection itself, and the synergy between the two. To perform high-level quality inspection, especially for complex parts and products, the component must be examined and inspected from several precise 3D poses . Aside from the ability to accurately control mechanical systems such as robotic arms and cameras, it is imperative to determine the optimal 3D poses for each specific inspection task.
Using the Kitov platform, QC engineers can define their inspection requirements directly on a complex CAD model – simply and intuitively – saving days, weeks, or even months compared to manual programming and finetuning.
Automatic Inspection Planner
The synergy between inspection plan and the inspection itself is Kitov’s strongest advantage. We specify the best practices for each type of inspection, determine the ideal imaging poses and parameters, and select the right algorithms to use accordingly. Another advantage of Kitov’s solution is our open software platform. We concentrate on technology and our partners focus on system building and customization for specific markets and products.
Kitov’s main technologies follow a specific quality inspection process:
The CAD2SCAN defines and marks the inspection requirements directly on the CAD system easily and intuitively.
Kitov’s automated planner optimizes the quality test plan to run in the most efficient manner, exploiting any robotic and automation system while considering the best practices for each test type.
The AI-based visual quality inspection operates in synergy with the planner and uses a hybrid approach that combines classical Computer Vision and Image Processing methods with AI and Deep Learning networks for best inspection results that are constantly being enhanced.
All Kitov’s technologies are packaged in an Open Software Platform, which enables Kitov’s customers, partners, and third parties to extend and customize the quality inspection capabilities to their specific needs, including specific robots, tools, and software detectors.
Kitov’s open software platform is designed to easily integrate with any automation environment and easily define and perform an inline quality inspection.
This is achieved with several interfaces that allow connectivity with:
