Smartex, AI-based quality inspection for the textile industry, unveils Smartex-V1!
Smartex-V1 is the advanced camera vision system that reduces defective production by 0 per cent in circular knitting machines, including lycra faults, yarn thickness, holes, needle defects and more.
The camera inspection system helps in reducing the production costs of textile manufacturing by detecting defects and stopping the production machines.
It utilises computer vision and artificial Intelligence to provide automated insightful productivity & quality reports, real-time production monitoring via internet.
“Smartex innovative technology helps our company every month by increasing production, improving quality and transparency in the supply chain,” says Eng. Mario Jorge Silva, CEO at Tintex Textiles S.A.
One of the most challenging defects present is the lycra defect which goes unnoticed until the dying stage, resulting in waste of resources.
Once the defect is detected, the knitting machine stops the production so that the problem is fixed without causing further damage.
