Autonomous Machine Vision system increases accuracy and cuts waste

03 August 2022

The BSH Home Appliance Group is the largest home appliance company in Europe. BSH wanted to implement a quality assurance system to spot defects early on and reduce material waste, in order to cut costs while benefitting the environment. The company found the perfect partner in Inspekto, which invented Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV).

Like Inspekto, BSH Appliance Group is a firm believer in innovation through digitalization, and 4.9 percent of the company’s spending is dedicated to research and development (R&D). As a result, the company established the BSH Startup Kitchen, an initiative that offers young companies the possibility to collaborate with BSH, by offering cutting-edge solutions to improve products and processes. The BSH Startup Kitchen tests promising new technologies and, following a successful pilot phase, offers the chance for a long-term business relationship. 

“We have recognised that startups are a valuable source of innovative technologies and solutions for many of our business segments,” said Lars Roessler, Venture Partner at BSH Startup Kitchen. “BSH can apply such innovations directly in our product development and boost the productivity of our processes.” 

One area where BSH intended to improve its existing processes was quality assurance (QA). As the systems in place still allowed some defected items to slip through, BSH was looking for a QA method that withheld the company’s strict quality standards, without being too complex and cumbersome to deploy. As the need arose for an accurate, reliable, but user-friendly system, the BSH Startup Kitchen decided to approach Inspekto.
