Avoid Unforeseen Failures

Anticipate and Prevent Production Downtime

Data-driven predictive models can be used to identify patterns in machine data that indicate an imminent failure before the effects on the manufactured product become visible. By monitoring and analyzing the machine data, strategic decisions can be made regarding the maintenance of the production line and serious production faults can be detected before the first defects appear on the product.

However, implementing production-ready AI systems for predictive maintenance is challenging due to the dynamic production environment and high demands on KPIs, as business decisions are consequential.

Our team is experienced in handling complex sensor data from various sources for predictive modeling. Our concepts are developed for production environments and include robust anomaly detection and strategies to adapt to different operating modes.

      Acoustic Event Detection & Anomaly Detection

      Automatically detecting and analyzing acoustic events plays a crucial role in ensuring operational efficiency and safety. With the help of advanced technologies such as audio transformers, acoustic event detection has become a mature technology that enables monitoring and evaluation of noises and vibrations produced by machinery during operation.
      Renumics utilizes event and anomaly detection techniques, paired with audio classification to build robust and trustworthy applications for predictive maintenance with acoustic data.

      Automated Visual Inspection in Production Line

      Modern computer vision methods in combination with high-speed camera setups are widely spread for visual inspection in industrial settings. Integrating AI into visual inspection can result in significant improvement by reducing susceptibility to issues like light, reflections, and dirt that may arise due to manual manufacturing steps.
      With new advancements in technology, machine learning models can already be fine-tuned with a few samples, which offers great adaptability and flexibility to accommodate design changes.

      Automated detection of errors

      Reduce production costs and waste through early detection of faulty parts in the manufacturing process.

          Avoid Expensive Sample Collection

          Training Machine Learning models requires a specific amount of samples. In the industrial context, collecting samples seems easy but obtaining parts with defects or anomalies are expensive to gather. Annotating samples by domain experts may be even more pricy.

          In this case, synthetic data can be used to save time, effort and costs and reduce bias in datasets. Although, synthetic data does not come without costs since significant effort in guiding and controlling the generation process and identification of biases and error types (anomalies) in the real-world data must be done.

          At Renumics, we have extensive experience in data curation, data cleansing and control and selection in the synthetic data generation process. Our methodology for training machine learning models relies on a data-centric approach. We prioritize the performance of the AI system in real-world applications, rather than just the machine learning model in a theoretical setting.
          For more information about our data-centric methodologies, please refer to our Blog and Playbook.

          Object Detection for Production Line Environments

          Utilize AI systems to improve surveillance and safety in your production line setup. Object detection can be used as technology to consistently monitor the environment and instantly detect any unexpected objects or obstacles that could disrupt the workflow or pose safety hazards for production.

          • Operational Efficiency: Remind your employees when stock is low
          • Proactive: Ensure that routes are not blocked
          • Enhances Safety: Hold machines if objects are located in hazardous areas
