Smart Vision for the Smart Factory

The Eigen Difference

Eigen Innovations is shaping vision for the smart factory. We help manufacturers from all industries reduce variation, eliminate uncertainty, and accelerate productivity with standardized, scalable, and flexible software. 

In a nutshell, we help manufacturers unlock the full potential of machine vision beyond quality inspection. Our software and solutions make it easy to design and implement vision systems that collect quality AND process intelligence on all products. 

For our customers, that means traceability on every part and the ability to anticipate issues before they occur. 

From defect inspection to defect prevention.

The smart factory is the connected factory. Our vision systems are standardized across manufacturing lines and sites. They are interconnected facilitating collaboration and learning across machines and lines where data is being collected.

Our vision solutions use machine learning to constantly optimize performance, unlocking the full potential of machine vision.


Our software suite leverages the latest technologies to help integrators and manufacturers mine the hidden insights inside their vision and process data. 

Our software includes CAD design tools, machine learning, big data analytics, cloud computing, and vision at the edge. 

Integrators and manufacturers use our software tools to accelerate solution design, standardize vison deployments, accelerate the value of those deployments across multiple sites and connect the dots between manufacturing process data and vision inspection data.

What makes our vision solutions unique is the automated correlation of collected image data to manufacturing process data. 

Merging these two powerful data streams allows teams to connect the dots between drifts in product quality and changes in process parameters. 

As a result, vision systems are no longer limited to detecting defects and eliminating defective parts. They also provide in-depth insights on why the defects occur and what must be fixed in the manufacturing process to prevent them.
