Customer Profile

Industry: Automotive (Tier 1) | Headquarters: USA | Employees: 25,000

This Tier 1 automotive parts supplier produces the highest quality products and systems for the automotive industry. With our extensive plastics, metals, lighting and mechanical assemblies experience, we persistently strive for continuous improvement and on-time delivery of defect-free products.


A Tier 1 automotive parts manufacturer could not detect critical surface defects on injected-molded, reflective plastic parts.


Eigen designed a vision solution featuring thermal and optical cameras and lighting system to make surface defects visible. Using data captured during production and Eigen’s OneView software, the team deployed a machine learning algorithm to detect multiple defects (i.e. short-shot, read-through, splay, etc.) in real-time and monitor key process settings.
