Defects presence / absence detected


Reject rate divided by 3

Client presentation

Tier 1 supplier of plastic parts and assemblies for the automotive industry, our client is a French company with several production sites in Europe. It is recognized for its expertise in plastic injection for high-stress applications in vehicles.

Quality at the center of concerns.

As in the majority of production companies in the automotive sector, quality inspection at our customer's site was mostly manual. The customer had a scrap rate ranging from 5% to 10% for detecting material shortages, presence/absence of components, as well as correct gasket placement. This led to more complex defects to be detected at the pace for line operators and hence customer claims for non-conformities.

The client's objectives

  • Switching from manual sampling quality control to 100% automated control

  • Reducing outgoing non-quality and customer claims

  • Maintaining autonomy in managing its industrializations

  • Inspecting at pace

The solution: Spark Multi View

To achieve these goals, Scortex has implemented its AI-powered automated quality inspection solution with Spark, and has enabled:

  • Automation of quality inspection on production lines

  • Flexibility for changes in references and produced series through Spark's high-performance AI training

  • Elimination of false detections through Spark's AI adaptability, taking into account user feedback

  • Implementation of an alert system for consecutive defect detection to stop production in case of drift

  • Access to all data generated by the Spark stations deployed on production lines via its Web Quality Center platform (real-time quality analysis, inspection report history, root cause analysis)

    • Including sequential review of categorized defective part images and temporal correlation with production tools used on the line

    • Defective tools were detected through process drift and the defects they induced

    • Their repair or replacement has reduced the scrap rate

The Results

  • 100% of automated quality control on one line

  • 100% of presence/absence defects detected

  • Use of quality data generated by Spark's Web Quality Center platform to reduce scrap rate by 3

  • Detection of all defects to reduce customer complaints and deliver a compliant finished product.

  • Integration of Spark into continuous improvement processes.

"We gained 5 points on the scrap rate thanks to Spark"
