Improving Production Processes in Energy-Intensive Foundation Industries

Lucideon, in collaboration with i3D robotics, experts in stereo vision systems, and Glass Technology Services, consultants to the glass manufacturing supply chain, has been working on a project to improve production processes within the energy-intensive foundation industries, specifically glass and ceramics


Through machine vision systems, machine learning, and artificial intelligence algorithms, we're aiming to deliver a solution that will allow for highly accurate, repeatable production process measurements that will highlight defects using in-process, non-destructive testing of materials. This will result in the sectors becoming more efficient, less energy-intensive and contribute to the Government's net-zero carbon pledge.

Further details of the project were on display at the RAI21 event hosted by the KTN on May 25-27th 2021.

Intelligent Robotics Inspection for Foundation Industry Optimisation (IRIFIO) is funded under the Government's Transforming Foundation Industries programme overseen by Innovate UK.
