Digital Manufacturing

Reduce errors, increase efficiency, and boost productivity

Increase productivity and efficiency with DAFO

Streamline operations and optimise staff training with the Digital Assistant for the Operators (DAFO). This powerful solution uses Computer Vision to understand your process layout and provide real-time guidance.

All with one Digital Assistant!

DAFO Solutions

Make sure you’re running as efficiently as possible


Like an interactive tutorial, DAFO guides the operator in their tasks using images and synthesised voices in their language.


Give operators step-by-step knowledge to assemble multiple products and their variants. Speed the process and reduce costs.

Optical Inspection

Connect it to a workbench or mount it in a conveyor for quality control and product counting. Verify the quality of the product throughout the process.


DAFO stores product images before their last stage to ensure everything is placed correctly. Avoid assembly mistakes and missing parts.


Increase productivity and reduce costs

What is DAFO?

The Digital Assistant for the Operators (DAFO) is a modular, flexible, and scalable solution that helps manufacturers optimise their production processes by focusing on staff training.

Your own Digital Coworker

With DAFO, you can better understand your production process and improve staff training.

Use Computer Vision to understand the layout of your process and give operators contextually-relevant information to assist them in their tasks. It’s like an expert digital coworker that offers instructions in real-time.

DAFO is here to help you
  • Are you facing challenges in finding skilled workers?

  • Need to meet customer demands?

  • Do you need help with high staff turnover?

  • Need help with quality control?

The fastest on the market

Our unique advantages

Blazing Fast Speed

The DAFO system has an impressive recognition time of 0.17 milliseconds – as fast as the blink of an eye, allowing operators to transition from one task to the next, maintaining the natural flow of the assembly process and keeping productivity.

Our system is designed to work offline, without a cloud connection, when security is a priority. This ensures that all your data remains secure and private and that no third party can access it.

No Cloud Dependency

Hardware Agnostic

While our Computer Vision Kit provides the optimal performance to run the software, it can also be run on a standard off-the-shelf computer with minimal requirements. This provides flexibility and versatility, allowing you to choose the hardware that best fits your needs.

Our solution is built entirely in-house and does not rely on external licences for libraries or models. This means that customers can acquire a perpetual licence and enjoy the freedom to update to new versions only when they choose.

Easy-to-follow instructions in multiple languages

How does DAFO work?



Through the HMI, the system indicates where to take the piece to be assembled. With computer vision, the system can see where the operator put his hand to remove the part and validate if it is correct.



The system validates that the operator has taken the correct part and indicates where it should be placed.



Once the piece is placed, the system validates that it is in the correct position.

Best solutions

A staff–centred approach to digitalisation

The DAFO Platform reduces stress and burnout by guiding operators with clear, easy-to-follow screen instructions.

Create more intelligent and user-friendly workstations with DAFO, allowing operators to train quickly and easily without requiring strict supervision. The flexible work areas encourage operators’ mobility between production lines.

The system uses text-to-speech (TTS) technology, explaining the instructions to the operator in their native language. Reducing the time needed to train personnel who speak a different language or cannot read or write.
