ABOUT US

Accelerate the evolution and revolution of manufacturing.

Inside manufacturing plants, various processes related to quality assurance,
such as inspection and monitoring of production, are performed by the human senses.
Until now, expert skill of workers was the key to these processes. However, in recent years,
labor shortage has become a major issue and passing on of expert skills is harder than ever.
We have created an original AI in order to resolve these issues.

Many companies until now have tried to automate the inspection process.
However, they could not realize the quality of inspection required to guarantee
“Made in Japan” quality.
Meanwhile, Adacotech, after 15 years of R&D, has finally developed a solution
that is the best fit for the manufacturing industry.

What we aspire to is a world where inspection is fully automated and where the manufacturing industry
can focus more on the truly creative process of manufacturing.
In other words, Adacotech’s mission is to accelerate the evolution and revolution of manufacturing.
For that future to come, we will continue to challenge every day.
