We are at it again, putting the “Creative” in Creative Electron. Dr. Bill Cardoso and team are taking on the challenge of programing of inspection systems. Programing X-ray inspection equipment is still a significant bottleneck in manufacturing, resulting in added cost and inefficiency. At Creative Electron, the future of X-ray inspection is now. The company has been awarded patent US 10,823,685 “Method and system to automatically inspect parts using x-rays” for AI powered programing of X-ray inspection systems.
“This patent is a reflection of our commitment to push the envelope when it comes to fulfilling our customers’ needs,” said Dr. Bill Cardoso, Creative Electron’s founder and CEO. “The protection of our IP is critical to allow us to continue investing in R&D to deliver fully autonomous X-ray inspection systems.”
This patent results from technology Creative Electron has been developing that allows a sample to be inspected without the need for an operator to program the machine. Utilizing AI engines and sophisticated machine learning algorithms, programing for both navigator level and planner level is fully automated, saving valuable time and reducing errors. Highly trained and skilled operators can be redirected to more productive tasks, while errors associated with human inspection are reduced via autonomous decision making. Once programed, the system is enabled to navigate to all required inspection points, capture and analyze images, assess quality based on established test criteria, and finally report results for each sample. All without human intervention.
We are proud of this milestone, and what it means for the future of inspection. If you’d like to learn more about this or other Creative Electron innovations, please, just ask the inventors.
