Business Challenge: 100% quality check of vehicle body parts
Currently, the quality process of the vehicle body parts is the manual six eye principle of employees. 100,000 parts are manually checked for quality per year. Jerich can accept 3 errors by the employees, otherwise they will lose their status as an A-supplier. In the worst-case scenasrio, the production chain at Jerich’s customers is interrupted, resulting in high personnel costs and long delivery times. Jerich can even be banned as a supplier for a short time if several errors occur in a shorter time. Jerich wants to relieve his employees of the enormous pressure by integrating an ivii image processing solution into the process.
ivii.solution: A smart work station equipped with the image processing system of ivii is situated in the goods-out area. This innovative workstation now suggests a manual six eye principle based on a two eyes principle. The image processing system checks the shape, the outer contour length, and the drill holes of the body part. Every detail is recorded and reported to the employee with real-time feedback. The experience of the employees flows into the system, which in turn leads to knowledge transfer in their own company.
- Immediate error correction in the process
- Relieving employees and thus focusing on other activities in the process
- Working with an easy-to-use-system
- Reduction of process costs

Pankl Racing AG, AUT
Pankl Racing AG is a Styrian company and part of the international group KTM Industries. The High Performance Systems division produces high-grade drivetrains for motorcycles.
The challenge: 100 % monitoring of the assembly steps requires precision down to elements with a thickness of just 0.3 mm. The system must report the quality of the work step immediately and must not be disrupted by natural fluctuations in daylight. A key challenge was programming the correct assembly without prior knowledge of image processing and without the support of the ivii experts.
The ivii solution: Our software combined with a customized camera and lighting concept provides the employee with immediate feedback on the quality of the current work step. The intelligent assistance system from ivii guarantees 100 % traceability and quality assurance. New drivetrains can be taught in easily.
