Innodisk has announced that it is working with NVIDIA and Aetina to bring the latest AI-powered industrial digitalization and automated inspection into its factories for advanced electronics manufacturing.

Innodisk, a global AIoT provider, has been deeply engaged in the embedded and industrial market for years, accompanying the industry’s transformation from IoT to IIoT and AIoT, assisting customers in integrating AI and IoT technologies into their applications. Not only to fulfill customers’ increasing demand for AI, but Innodisk is also proactively planning to integrate AI intelligence into its manufacturing center. This strategic move aims to enhance the overall efficiency of its manufacturing workflow in its upcoming new factory.

Aetina, a subsidiary of Innodisk, holds a prominent position as a leading edge AI provider and maintains a strong collaboration with NVIDIA. Leveraging the power of the NVIDIA Metropolis for Factories platform, in combination with Aetina’s GPU-powered SuperEdge AI Training Platforms, presents an ideal synergy that enables Innodisk to develop, deploy, and manage tailored AI-enabled solutions that enhance throughput, production quality, and cost savings within its innovative factory automation workflow. This approach enables Innodisk to achieve superior quality and production efficiency in its AIoT systems while seamlessly integrating hardware and software technologies.

AOI technology is widely used in modern manufacturing sites. However, the traditional approach of AOI, relying on optical analysis for object detection, can sometimes lead to misjudgments. This, in turn, increases the time and labor costs associated with manual re-inspection. Nevertheless, in today’s era of rapid AI development, there is a strong potential for significant improvements in these outcomes.

NVIDIA Metropolis for Factories is a collection of factory automation AI workflows that enable industrial system providers and manufacturers to develop, deploy, and manage customized quality-control systems that save cost and improve production throughput. NVIDIA Metropolis integrates tightly with the NVIDIA Omniverse platform and can be used for AI training to build physically accurate digital twins and simulations to aid in the creation of massive, synthetically generated training datasets.

Innodisk is deploying both platforms, from NVIDIA and Aetina, for vision AI to enhance the steps of factory workflows. It provides an efficient re-inspection process within production line AOI systems to automate the inspection and optimize the operation.

Innodisk expects that after adopting this these platforms into its new factory, it will allow it to introduce the next wave of industrial automation and bring additional value to its customers and partners across a wide range of industries.
