Machine Learning Platform

Acumen AI

The Acumen AI is an intelligent, digital microscope that utilises next generation, deep learning video analysis. Automatically identify, detect, classify, measure and count a wide range of part defects. Implementing the power of the Acumen AI will significantly increase production efficiency, eliminate human error and increase production throughput.

Utilise the power of the Acumen AI to develop your own machine learning models for your parts, for your needs.
Alternatively, tell us the problem and we can develop a complete Turnkey AI Solution.


  • Return on Investment

    The Acumen AI will significantly increase throughput and reduce material waste. It will also reduce inspection costs and overheads. Inspect critical parts in milliseconds. Remove operator error, eliminate risk, avoid product recalls and protect your reputation. Acumen AI will pay for itself and provide significant return on investment.

  • Self-Training

    Master your own destiny. Train the Acumen AI for what you want, when you want. Train and develop your own complex programs to rapidly identify defects and meet your specific needs. The Acumen AI is intuitive, easy to train and simple to learn.

The Acumen AI - the intelligent digital microscope system powered by machine learning


  • Autonomous

    You can automate your process with the Acumen AI, consequentially removing subjectivity and eliminating human error. Increase efficiency. Through the  integration of robots and cobots, you can free up valuable resources to work on other projects.

  • Data Reporting

    Gather data for continuous learning and process improvement. Generate in-depth detailed reports directly from the Acumen AI. Output images, failure statistics and custom data reports to improve statistical process control.
