UTP Vision

The Artificial Intelligence… inspecting differently!
Visual inspection machines have been now part of the industrial context for several years, with the aim of improving production processes while minimizing the risk of error.
UTPVision has always been strongly oriented towards the improvement of its solutions to offer increasingly performing and reliable systems, both in terms of hardware and software.
One of the tangible results of this approach is the integration of Artificial Intelligence algorithms, which allows UTPVision systems to have a technology that twists the traditional methods of image inspection control, usually based on the insertion of thresholds manually by the operator. This new approach based on Artificial Intelligence has been proven more robust because it’s disconnected from the environment and from the process variables that required continuous adjustments of the thresholds already set in the machine. UTPVision system is in fact able to identify “objects” (with defined shape) and / or surface defects (with undefined shape) by image samples. The operator just needs to collect a series of significant samples of the defect/characteristic to be detected, and through the so-called SVL (SuperVised Learning) procedure, he can train the machine to discriminate or classify. Another important goal in terms of innovation is a patented colour inspection system composed of bichromatic illuminators; thanks to this feature, the control procedure is more efficient and allows to reduce the so-called “false positive” (overkill, i.e. the percentage of good pieces wrongly discarded).
It permits also to include in the visual inspection software an algorithm dedicated to the detection of burrs on profiles of any shape articles in deformable material, as well as the possibility to define control areas starting from a 3D CAD drawing.
Since 2008, UTPVision has been able to understand the growing demand of the industry by creating its own range of visual inspection systems, entirely developed in two Italian production sites in Albano S. Alessandro and Costa di Mezzate, Bergamo, which today manage the whole of the production. UTPVision distributes its vision systems worldwide through a broad sales network; for the Asian area, which today is the reference market after the Italian one, there is a subsidiary and a showroom in Shanghai with sales and technical staff dedicated to local customers; eventually in North America UTPVision has just launched a new branch in Hanover, near Boston Massachusetts.
