EVE Suite – Innovative Solutions
With EVE Suite, HAHN Digital provides a portfolio of innovative solutions that put the digital transformation of tomorrow’s Smart Factory into practice. Upon the integration of EVE Suite services into their processes, users can noticeably increase their output regarding the most important factors: Productivity, Efficiency, Quality and Flexibility.
With the EVE Vision product line, HAHN Digital offers a solution for the challenges of the manual visual inspection: Automated visual inspection with an automatic end-of-line tester. The advanced machine vision algorithms of EVE Vision take error proofing to an unprecedented level.
The advantages of EVE Vision:
- Excellent error proofing as a result of machine learning and computer vision algorithms.
- Quick operational readiness with intuitive control and automated motion planning.
- Saving of resources and improved results via automated quality control and end-of-line testing.
Ready to use within a few hours only
EVE Vision can be activated within just a few hours. Its intuitive control enables easy operation. Employees do not require any previous experience with software programming, camera or robot technology. Models of products that are subject to computer-vision testing are generated based on surface scans and CAD data. Afterwards, the software takes over motion and image planning automatically. After a few hours, EVE Vision starts with the automated product testing. With every end-of-line testing, the machine learning algorithms will improve with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). The accompanying automation of quality control can bring substantial savings in resources to companies. The improved testing quality renders elaborate manual visual inspection unnecessary.
Higher product quality through machine vision
With the aid of special computer vision technology, EVE Vision scans and identifies surfaces, labels, text, barcodes, bolts, plugs, and ports. The machine vision detectors are specialized on various cases of application and are pre-equipped with several thousand reference images. This ensures a high detection rate starting with the very first inspected part that even identifies small details like screw-depth or the condition of bolt heads. Furthermore, individual detectors can be developed.
Process optimization through automatic end-of-line testing
As a complete solution for end-of-line testing, EVE Vision significantly reduces the company’s initial effort with inspecting products. Employees can autonomously expand, change, or adjust the inspection plan, which makes the process much faster, more economical, and more flexible.
HAHN Digital Consulting guides manufacturing companies through their digital transformation.
In order to make companies faster, more flexible, and more efficient, HAHN Digital accompanies the planning, conception, and implementation of digital transformation in manufacturing companies.

Digital Readiness Quickcheck
HAHN Digital performs a Digital Readiness Quick Check for customers. Digitalization potentials – also referred to as digital maturity – of certain processes or products is assessed on the basis of a profound analysis. Following models like the acatech Industry 4.0 Maturity Index and VDMA Industry 4.0 Readiness Check, a methodical procedure is applied to identify customized solution approaches to process digitalization.
The status quo analysis of the examined processes and products is summarized in a compact result report. This document shows the required steps including the according prioritization that can lead to a systematic increase in maturity.
Quick Proof of Concepts
Proof of concept projects are a method of making digital transformation potentials of a company tangible within a very short time.
