Kitov.ai has announced the new K-BOX line of machine vision systems.
The K-BOX systems combine AI, 3D imaging, and intelligent robotic planning technologies for demanding manufacturing inspection applications.
The K-BOX offers the same functionality as its Core+ solution. However, instead of shipping with an industrial robot, K-BOX offers APIs that connect Kitov software to virtually any standard or collaborative robot on the market, allowing customers to add advanced visual inspection capabilities to their existing robotic solutions. Customers have the choice of choosing the brand and the size of the robot according to their needs.
“K-BOX is part of Kitov.ai’s efforts to make powerful, deep-learning machine vision software available to every customer segment by focusing on the capabilities of integrated software rather than dedicated robot software,” said Aviel First, CEO. “With K-BOX, our customers can field hybrid machine vision systems without having to adapt to robotic platforms that may not be part of their in-house robotic specifications or expertise.”
K-BOX includes Kitov’s optical head as well as a processing unit that runs the Kitov Smart Planner software. The software capabilities cover 2D and 3D machine vision, AI, and deep learning.
The Smart Planner software also incorporates the award-winning CAD2SCAN, which uses CAD files to define and plan the inspection for target parts automatically and supports the new QIF (Quality Information Framework) ISO standard. Furthermore, Kitov.ai’s Smart Planner software integrates “semantic detectors,” custom algorithms designed for specific tasks such as comprehensive screw or fastener inspection, labels, and other common assignments.
