    Smart Detect: Your benchmark
    for the highest product quality

    Smart Detect - efficient quality assurance for manufacturing companies

    Automated precision and cost efficiency in product inspection with Smart Detect

    To be successful in the market as a manufacturing company, 100% reliable product quality is essential. Many companies have been using standardised testing devices and machines for years to check the quality of their products. However, the associated costs are often high, as many machines do not carry out product checks fully automatically or fail to check certain materials. In addition, they often require complicated and inflexible programming.

    This is where Smart Detect comes in as an innovative solution for quality assurance. With Smart Detect, we offer you a more flexible and cost-effective solution to ensure product quality. Our technology accompanies you and your company on the way to the Industry 4.0 era by optimising the efficiency and flexibility of your quality assurance processes.

    Application examples for smart quality control


    The function of Smart Detect is based on simple training processes instead of complex and time-consuming programming. During the one-time training, all relevant information about the products is collected in order to classify them. With the help of these parameters, the products can then be correctly identified.


    Once materials have been stored via training, they can be analyzed for surface defects. These are detected automatically thanks to Smart Detect, and in the event of defects - depending on individual specifications - an appropriate procedure is activated (e.g. acoustic signal). Surfaces classified during training serve as a basis for detecting defects on new parts as well - without having to train the exact shape, color or material separately.

    In order to benefit from the advantages of Smart Edge Analytics, entrepreneurs must first invest in the appropriate hardware. This includes, for example, camera equipment, lighting units, PLC edge gateway and communication interfaces. During a detailed consultation, our experts will be happy to explain how Smart Edge Analytics can also be implemented in your company.

    Advantages of Smart Detect

    Less Effort
    Less effort

    When introducing new products as well as modifying existing products, less effort is required in terms of quality assurance and material testing.

    Targeted Training
    Targeted training

    Targeted training, instead of cumbersome input of hundreds of complicated parameters. This leads to leaner processes and significant time and cost savings.

    Reliable testing processes

    Reliable testing processes for difficult materials such as textures, wood or food. Smart Detect guarantees reliable results even for products that conventional image processing systems cannot reliably inspect.

    FAQs Smart Detect

    For whom is Smart Detect worthwhile?

    Smart Detect is the alternative for all companies that attach great importance to reliable quality inspection, but were only satisfied to a limited extent with conventional inspection methods. Smart Detect proves its strength, especially when testing difficult materials - this applies to small companies as well as large enterprises.

    How does Smart Detect enable maximum time savings?

    Conventional image processing systems have to be programmed using various parameters. This takes time. Afterwards, the systems still cannot react appropriately to deviations because they are bound to their parameters. Smart Detect, on the other hand, guarantees a learning effect: materials and products are learned during training; running the training program once is sufficient. Smart Detect then even identifies parts that did not occur in the training but are similar to them.

    What is Smart Detect and how does it differ from conventional quality assurance methods?

    Smart Detect is an innovative solution for quality assurance in manufacturing companies. In contrast to conventional methods, it optimises product control through a flexible and cost-efficient technology that meets the requirements of Industry 4.0.

    What challenges does Smart Detect solve compared to conventional quality assurance methods?

    Smart Detect reduces the effort and costs associated with conventional methods. It allows for a more flexible product inspection that is fully automated and at the same time can respond to specific requirements without requiring complicated programming.

    Is Smart Detect suitable for companies of all sizes?

    Yes, Smart Detect is suitable for companies of all sizes. The flexibility of the technology allows it to adapt to different production environments and requirements.
