Human visual inspection can only check 4,000 contact lenses per day. Increasing market demands have contributed to a production bottleneck.
The Asia Pacific contact lens market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.16% from 2020 to 2025. Such fast growth relies on increased production and a higher rate of quality inspection. ADLINK and its AI solution partner, LEDA Technology, offer an AI-enabled automated optical inspection (AOI) solution to help Taiwanese contact lens manufacturers improve the accuracy and speed of quality inspection.
Challenges in Inspecting Contact Lenses
Conventional machine vision AOI identifies defects using fixed geometric algorithms, which are hard to improve due to the difficulty of obtaining quality sample images from high-transparency contact lenses.
AI-based AOI Benefits Contact Lens Manufacturers
50x increase in inspection throughput
65% increase in inspection accuracy
