The adopted AI technologies are good/bad image classification technology to detect defective (scratch, stain, crack, etc.) electronic components, an anomaly detection technology to detect unexpected anomalous images caused by contamination of different products or missing electrodes, and an AI training environment to generate training models for these technologies.
The classification and anomaly detection technologies utilize “SoftNeuro®”, the world class deep learning inference engine, to enable high-speed processing.
The introduction of Morpho’s AI technologies is expected to simplify the inspection process and reduce production cost. The image inspection system with these new functions will be installed in various inspection systems of Tokyo Weld, and test operations are scheduled to begin in preparation for its market launch.
Morpho will continue to promote the development of technology and market deployment toward the realization of smart factories.
