BACKGROUNDER

About Eigen Innovations

Founded in 2012, Eigen Innovations was born from the belief that Industry 4.0 is more than a buzz term and that AI/ML would increasingly become a reality as industrial manufacturers push to constantly raise the bar in terms of quality.

As technologies that drive smarter manufacturing rapidly evolve, Eigen continues to build momentum with customers that employ complex manufacturing processes.  With that complexity come challenging problems – the most difficult being those that can’t be seen. 

While we are rooted in tech, we firmly believe in the human element of AI and focus on connecting those at every point in the manufacturing process to ensure Operational excellence and Quality standards are aligned. And, as customers introduce our solution, they are gaining insights and amass data allows them to move from true monitoring and detection of defects to real-time triggering of process actions that eliminate bad parts or products leaving their factories.

Seeing is Believing 

While other vision solutions offer simple defect monitoring and detection, our AI-enabled solution stands out as it provides a view “inside” parts and processes. Using the latest in imaging technology, data analytics and connectivity that operates seamlessly with current machinery, we allow our customers to more clearly define and detect quality issues.
