Innovation, intelligence and stability combined

The VI-X is a robotic system that enables the automated visual inspection of complex parts, such as imaging, defect detection, classification and final decision-making on the acceptability of defects.
Inspection data is available and an inspection report can be generated automatically.

Specify your surface finish 

The VI-X visual inspection system is capable of operating on various surface finishes:

  • Mirror
  • Semi-reflective
  • Mast

Key Technologies

  • Industrial camera
  • Lighting system, dedicated to the surface finish to be inspected
  • OwlVision Software enabling the characterisation and classification of defects according to inspection requirements
  • 6-Axis Fanuc© Robot
  • Hand-held part: The robot grabs the part and moves it within the machine, to the inspection tools Parts Cleaning System
  • Remote connectivity system for 24/7 technical support: camera, router 4G and tablet Ergonomic drawers for quick loading of a batch of parts


  • Secure closed cell reduces the risk of injury to your operators
  • Compact cell easily integrated into your production line
  • Improvement of the quality and consistency of inspection
  • Accurate location of inspected defects
  • Collection of inspection data for better production monitoring

A connectivity system that allows the AV&R technical support team to have a remote view and access to the robotic system.
