Acumen: AI Platform by ASH (YouTube)

AI Powered Inspection


Acumen AI massively outperforms manual inspection. Reducing product waste, eliminating subjectivity, reducing cost, improving yields, increasing throughput, and reducing risk. This is a system that becomes more intelligent with time and delivers an excellent return on investment.

AI Revolutionising Inspection

Manual inspection comes with many shortcomings. All these can be addressed with the introduction of inspection machines and processes which are powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI is based on deep learning which utilises neural networks that mimic the human brain through the use of algorithms. The more training the system is given the more accurate the results.


  • Remove operator subjectivity
  • Increase throughput
  • Reduce inspection overheads
  • Free-up and re-deploy employees
  • Reduce employee exposure to repetitive strain injuries
  • Reduce product wastage and re-work
  • Increases overall efficiency
  • Fewer product recalls
  • Rapid return on investment
  • Reduce the risk of reputational damage

Data Reporting

Reported results can be saved locally or exported to a cloud platform for documentation purposes or for statistical analysis that can be used to further improve the manufacturing process. The report is output in CSV or PDF format.

Cloud Services

The Acumen AI can store images, models, reports, datasets both locally and on a cloud server. A cloud server can also add services such as AI training, statistical process control (SPC) and predictive maintenance.

Compliance – 21CFR Part 11

The Acumen AI is suited to industries requiring Good Manufacturing Practise (GMP) and is compliant with 21CFR Part 11 which allows ease of validation for Installation Qualification (IQ), Operation Qualification (OQ) and Performance Qualification (PQ) particularly in medical device and pharma industries.

Acumen AI for Precision Engineering


Within the Precision Engineering field, it is necessary that all parts produced have the ability to be inspected and measured. It is critical to have a reliable method to inspect and measure that is capable of being checked and verified that all parts have been machined correctly and meet the required tolerances.


Inspection and measurement when done manually can be time consuming and prone to subjectivity from operators. In most cases there are multiple systems being used to carry out just one stage of the verification process whether that be the inspection or measurement aspect. This results in large amounts of waste along with increased risk to your customers and your reputation.


Acumen AI provides a solution that not only inspects and detects for multiple types of defects but can also perform measurement, in real-time on multiple parts at the same time. This removes the need for manual inspection and measurement which in turn reduces labour, cost, time and removes the risk and subjectivity caused by human error. It ensures that you are getting an instant return on investment, increasing your throughput all while collecting data to improve overall manufacturing efficiency.


ASH design, develop and manufacture award winning digital vision and measurement solutions using AI and deep learning.  ASH hold multiple innovation awards and a library of patents allowing us to bring you the latest advancements in cutting edge technologies.

We strive to continually advance the field of inspection. Since 2018 we’ve pioneered the use of integrated software Apps for inspection. In 2019 we created the world’s first pure-inspection camera platform, AshCam+™, and in 2020 we launched the world’s first AI 30x zoom camera inspection platform. The benefits of our camera are that you can now easily configure and set up for a range of parts through one camera platform. We’ve received multiple technology and design awards, including Red Dot and IF Design awards.
