Every Roll will Undergo Automatic Inspection and Grading With Smartex
With Automatic Roll Grading feature, Smartex FACT enables the setting up of special quality standards to determine the automatic grading of knitted rolls based on the severity of detected defects. With a defined grading system in place, Smartex CORE can guarantee uniform quality standards throughout the production process, thanks to its AI-driven quality control. Typically, in the case of knitted fabric rolls, only about 10% undergo inspection. With Smartex, every roll will undergo automatic inspection and grading, with Grade-A rolls receiving a Fast Track label – that can be printed and applied to rolls with Smartex LOOP – so you always know where to focus your attention.
Users Gain Complete Overview of Their Factory
With Digital Factory Page, users gain a complete overview of their factory including the number of machines currently running and rolls produced on that day.
Last but certainly not least, stay in the know with Real-time Notifications tailored to your priorities. Whether it’s machines operating at a lower RPM, excessive machine downtime, or the identification of poor-quality rolls, you’ll receive timely updates. As a result, It is easier to make data-informed decisions around increasing RPM speed, inspecting lower-quality rolls and responding to other machine-related issues.
Gilberto Loureiro, Co-founder and CEO of Smartex.ai, stated, “Our new product takes manufacturing and quality control to the next level. With Smartex FACT, users will be able to know when rolls don’t meet the requested quality or when production issues arise. And with the platform being easily accessible via desktop or any smartphone, it is basically your textile factory in your pocket.”
