Ensuring quality control in mission-critical electronics is not just a mere priority – it’s a matter of life and death. A single defect can have catastrophic consequences for end-users and cause significant damage to a brand’s reputation. Unfortunately, manual inspection processes can be time-consuming and prone to human error, leading to costly consequences.

This case study highlights how a telecommunications brand leveraged manufacturing automation through Instrumental to boost quality and efficiency. By discovering novel defects in real-time and automating its manufacturing processes, the company was able to intercept live defects and eliminate the risk of human error and labor-intensive checks.

The Results

  • 4.6% Operator escapes prevented
  • 75% Operator headcount reduction
  • 63% Reduction in inspection time


“Prior visual inspection systems could only catch known defects. The interesting aspect of Instrumental is to catch unique [and unknown] defects.”
