Griffyn Robotech offers a machine named DEEPSIGHT to help grade pre-owned devices. It is the world’s most advanced cosmetic grading machine for cellular phones and tablets. It can help business owners at the procurement stage by appraising incoming devices accurately and consistently. It is not always possible for a person grading such devices to maintain a level of consistency with assessing the extent of scratches and other cosmetic variations in the device that impact its look, and in some cases, the functionality. This is where DEEPSIGHT can help. It color-codes cracks, scratches and dents and superimposes them on the raw image of the device to help discern its quality.

Accuracy in production is crucial for gear manufacturers. Faulty production can end up causing them severe financial damage. However, no production process is error-proof. Because of this, checking for errors becomes critical as it also helps in improving the production process. Visual inspection by people is the primary way manufacturers check for errors. Experienced individuals in this area can be a great asset to gear manufacturers. But even then, fatigue and boredom, leads to miss outs.

Quality control is one of the most critical steps while manufacturing a product. But a quality control inspector needs to identify the fault in the products and categorize those defects and report them. These defects are identified according to the pre-set requirements, and then the classification of defects is done.
Now the question arises as to how to categorize defects as every problem comes with unique challenges.
