VIRE LABS Oy is an innovative Finnish hardware and software development company. We specialize in advanced industrial AI detection. For our customers we build solutions for digitizing material, human and service flows.
The core of the AI detection solutions we develop for our customers is the powerful VIREBOX.AI device, which helps to identify deviations, streamline processes, and make future predictions.
Virebox.AI machine vision solution ensures product quality at Raisio
Vire Labs’ AI-based machine vision solution is an important part of the quality control system at Raisioaqua in Finland. Intelligent machine vision allows the company to ensure the high quality and uniformity of their products.
Raisioaqua strives to produce fish feed with a uniform high quality, and this requires constant monitoring.
“In the past, visual quality control was done by human eyes. The problem with this was that people may have very differing views on what good quality actually means, and a slow decline in quality is very difficult to detect with the human eye. With the machine vision solution we are able to achieve better results. If the quality falls below a set level, the solution will immediately inform the operator that corrective measures are needed,” Plant Manager Petri Elonen at Raisioaqua explains.
The Virebox.AI solution has been in use at Raisioaqua since 2019. It is now a crucial part of Raisio’s quality control system. Petri Elonen says that using the system paid for itself in less than a year.
“If we can prevent even one customer from leaving by ensuring a good impression of our production quality, the machine vision solution has already paid for itself many times over,” says Elonen..
Virebox.AI & smart sawmill
Metsä Group wants to make the most out of its wood. Veisto is there to help Metsä operate efficiently. Vire Labs detects the log ends on the Veisto saw line, so only centimetres are needed between them.
Solutions to problems that seem impossible
Our customers buy solutions related to problems with the development of automation. In our opinion, the best problems are those that have never been solved in the world before. We succeed because of our expertise in the development of both hardware and software. We are strongly committed to collaboration with our customers. Working with you, we will put together a proof of concept (POC) in a couple of weeks and a commercial product in six months.
For our customers we have produced insightful Virebox.AI solutions for quality control (Raisioaqua), to improve the efficiency of saw lines (Veisto / HewSaw), in railway fleet maintenance and switch monitoring (VR Fleetcare) and to analyze passenger flows in trams (Škoda Transtech).
For detection we can use various measuring technologies (cameras, LiDARs, sensors etc.), and our own product Virebox.AI can perform demanding identification and analysis using edge computing without sending data to the cloud. The technology is especially suitable for tasks containing personal data and in conditions where data transfer capacity is weak.
“Traditional industry is transforming into the Industry 4.0 world where automation meets digitalization. Virebox provided us a fast track to this new world.”
Mika Riikonen, BAU Director, Insta
“Digitalization brings lots of opportunities while at the same time the amount of available data is constantly growing. We were surprised how easily Virebox was installed to customer environments and it also brought us new business models.”
Markus Santanen, Director, Mipro
“Virebox.AI can be used to implement versatile detection solutions based on various technologies. A high-performance detection solution, for example, combining video cameras and optical radars, can in best cases be implemented in a few days. Virebox.AI operates in its expandability and sustainability as an enabler of customer-oriented business operations and processes in all industrial sectors.”
