Vision systems are crucial for quality assurance in manufacturing where they play an important role by scanning and identifying issues with parts.

Vision systems extract vital information from an image from which they use to determine the suitability of a product or part. This information can be used to inform how other parts of the production line are programmed and ultimately improve productivity in the manufacturing plant.
