Meet ARO –

Augmented Reality enhanced Quality Inspection.

Increase Quality: Prevent any defects. In less time. Right on site.
AR-powered inspection assistance with means of computer vision.

Increase the gain of production control, without increasing costs or efforts.

ARO is an efficient, intuitive mobile quality inspection system, turning tablets and stationary control systems into powerful tools for quality assurance.

ARO is changing the way how parts, components and assemblies are controlled for quality and suitability, addressing industry’s needs to find errors fast, to avoid down times, to reduce scrap and rework and to cut follow-up costs in manufacturing and service.

Track it & Check it

ARO is built for mechanical engineering and manufacturing industries and enhances the inspection process through its modern, innovative techniques.

Gain from a visual inspection that is assisted by computer vision detection: Using the camera, ARO automatically localizes and registers the inspected objects, and enables to compare the as-is situation against the target situation, by precisely overlaying the target visually over reality.

By comparing reality captured objects against their CAD specification, ARO enables to detect differences between their as-is (reality) and as-planned (CAD) condition with just a mobile device and improves solving critical issues like:

With visual guidance, ARO points out irregularities immediately, interactive and in realtime, making it easier to identify differences or deviations and to measure defects between as-is and as-planned more quickly.

Overlay CAD specification, digital twins, annotations, tolerances and other process-relevant information in just a few steps. 

Prevent Defects.
Faster.

With visual augmented reality techniques, ARO points out errors instantly and enables to find more errors – and more quickly, compared to traditional 3D scanning techniques.

By being faster in the process, you can increase the inspection rate by up to 6 times.

Cut Prep-up Time. Lots of it.

ARO uses marker-less tracking to auto-register parts and reduces the time needed to prep objects for inspection.

Define and setup inspection cases within minutes based on your 3D CAD data and benefit from precise auto-registration and measurements.

Mobile. Flexible.
Digital.

Being mobile, engineers can now bring the inspection to objects, not the other way around:

Parts do not have to be transported, they can be inspected right on site, at any time in the production cycle: incoming goods receipt, assembly, or end of line.

ARO Studio & ARO Mobile.

A Powerful Tandem for AR Quality Inspections

ARO empowers quality-related inspection and pushes it to the next level. With simple and quick workflows, the tandem of Studio & Mobile makes setup of AR-enhanced inspections and the usage of it as easy as can be.

ARO Studio is engineer's comprehensive desktop tool to setup inspection cases

Based on 3D CAD data, ARO Studio enables to design and edit inspection routines and AR-related assets, which can afterwards easily be deployed to ARO Mobile.

The organised GUI streamlines the workflow into comprehensive steps, from data import and optimisation, up to defining inspection areas.

Working with Augmented Reality is fast and seamless, as there is no deeper knowledge needed. Setup and use tracking with a few clicks. Code-less. Drag&Drop-style. Enterprise Augmented Reality made simple.

ARO Mobile turns iOS tablets
into powerful mobile inspections tools

Once created in ARO Studio, simply load and run the inspection project on mobile devices.

Gain from automatic object registration and precisely aligned visual augmentations that enable to compare physical objects against their CAD specification and digital twin – all by capturing reality objects through the camera.

Benefit from computer vision assisted inspection that enables checking items for existence, valid positioning and general misfits.
