The Next Generation of Visual Quality Inspection in High-Value Manufacturing

Enabling Zero-Defect Manufacturing

FotoNow is hardware and software independent Visual Inspection Solution powered by AI, that can be immediately deployed, integrated with every industrial connector, and seamlessly scaled across diverse company environments to rapidly achieve ROI.

  • Proprietary image enhancement and cloud-based Computer Vision technology augmented by Deep Learning enable the identification of scratches, color irregularities, text, and dents on surfaces, as well as missing, misaligned or misplaced parts in multiple components of various manufacturing industries.
  • Our cutting-edge technology allows a 100% quality inspection coverage under real-world manufacturing conditions while maintaining a high detection accuracy even with changing lighting, high-frequency vibrations, and objects in motion, independent of the camera system and camera position.
  • Built-in integrations with major cloud, ERP and IT-system vendors enable an immediate fault notification and information sharing across multiple manufacturing lines, plants, and departments contributing to an error-free transition to the industry 4.0.

FotoNow has performed more than 25,000,000 inspections in real production environments drastically reducing the cost of quality and manufacturing with a production accuracy of more than 99%.
