Maintaining quality for medical equipment and pharmaceutical products is no easy task, especially when your product line includes dozens of brands sold in countries around the world.

A major manufacturer came to MLaaS in search of an automated solution for a wide range of contact lenses. From lenses designed to correct near and farsightedness, to astigmatism and presbyopia via spherical, multifocal and toric lenses, there were more than a dozen unique product-lines, each with an application-specific design, and where the range of prescription variation was met through a universe of SKUs that correspond to the individual perception.

The Solution

Since the client already had machine vision systems in place, MLaaS simply trained a model from large datasets containing tens of thousands of images of defective and acceptable lenses, and then integrated with the existing system. The software ran in real time and identified defects with greater accuracy and speed than the previous system. Fewer defective products shipped, lower recall costs, and one happy customer.
