Benefits of eFlex Vision:

  • Advance Quality Management Efforts: Reduce first-time quality hits by reducing false rejects and bad part approval due to camera issues. Archive all images produced by inspection cameras to quickly retrieve in the event of a quality spill. Easily search the storage database to quickly contain quality spills by easily finding the “start” and “end” of the spill.
  • Improve Warranty Claim Management Capabilities: Images can be used for warranty claim reviews and improved root cause analysis. Images of other parts manufactured at the same stations, times and/or lots can be reviewed to determine larger production problems. Comply with #FDA21 CFR Part 11 audit trails to help protect against warranty claims.
  • Eliminate High-Cost Resources: Managing and storing production images manually is time consuming and expensive. Our web-based solution simplifies the process, reduces or eliminates manual labor, reduces the number of computers needed, and bridges the gap between IT and the plant floor.
  • Support Decision Making: Receive real-time, actionable information to enable process control, predictive maintenance, containment and more.
  • And much more...

Main Features of eFlex Vision:

  • Reliable Image Storage & Organization: Proven image management solution with a variety of searchable criteria for data retrieval and off-site cloud image storage services. Perform image storage, search and stabilizing/analyzing tasks with your existing in-house engineering and maintenance resources. Search through thousands of images with ease, with numerous search criteria to pinpoint images by date, time, camera, product, serial number, pass/fail and more. Manage file naming convention for every camera and send alarms based on: trending camera data, storage duration, image received verification and other features.
  • Visible & Accessible Anytime, Anywhere: Consolidate all images on cloud storage, with a secure web interface that allows users on any device to easily search, download and analyze images cost-effectively and in real-time (as product is being built).
