In a world where every millimeter matters, quality control is a task ready to be revolutionized by AI. Rising to the challenge, KSM Vision’s optical system harnesses the power of AI to automate quality control, capable of testing up to 36,000 items per hour and identifying imperfections more minor than a grain of sugar.

Quality control has always been a substantial financial burden for large-scale producers. Industry reports suggest that such businesses dedicate almost a quarter of their operating budgets, excluding raw materials, to compliance efforts. With a high prevalence of waste due to undetected flaws, there’s a growing need for more efficient solutions.

KSM Vision is a game-changer for the FMCG industry, partnering with giants like Mlekovita. With the ability to spot minute irregularities in production line items at breakneck speeds, the solution reduces wastage and improves overall product quality. Detecting anomalies early saves manufacturers from costly batch discards and prevents customers from receiving subpar products. In an industry where trust is paramount, KSM Vision is setting new standards in quality assurance.

“We can support quality control in different industries – from lumber to pharmaceuticals. Our advantage lies in our proficiency in both hardware and software. This allows our AI solutions to easily merge with existing technologies, whether production lines or machines. Five minutes is how long it takes to adapt to a new product. Solutions without neural network embedded take significantly longer: efficiency and accuracy are in the DNA of our system.” says Dr Krzysztof Malowany, CEO of KSM Vision.

The startup is eager to replace manual product inspections, notorious for high costs, poor repeatability, and frequent inaccuracies. Crafted by engineers, this detection system can precisely pinpoint production anomalies, requiring only a few dozen examples of perfectly manufactured products. That’s a stark difference from rival models that demand extensive databases of correct and incorrect examples.

“Investing in KSM Vision is a strategic step towards harnessing deep tech for sustainable industrial transformation. Its AI drives efficiency, scrutinizes the minute details, and directly bolsters the bottom line,” argues Jacek Błoński, Managing Partner of Aper Ventures.
