Device for reading numbers on watch components (movement and exterior)

The qmtocr-200 is an optical device for reading numbers on watch components.

The reading software integrates the DigiOcr algorithm specially developed for watchmaking applications. It allows, thanks to the use of Deep Learning, a much higher reading rate than traditional technologies even in difficult reading conditions.

The device is compact and ergonomic to fit ideally into a watchmaking workshop.

The strong points of the qmtocr-200
  • Reading rate over 95%
  • Measuring time less than 1.5 seconds
  • Qmtrelief lighting to guarantee reading even on decorated surfaces
  • Compact and ergonomic equipment
  • Connectivity capability for transferring data to other systems

OCR reading by Deep Learning
Artificial intelligence for high reading rate in all conditions
The algorithm can locate numbers and letters much more robustly, regardless of their orientation, font type and polarity. The ability to automatically group characters allows the identification of entire words. This significantly improves recognition performance and avoids misinterpretation of characters with similar appearances

Partnership with Digiinov
Combination of know-how
The qmtocr-200 product integrates Digiinov software technologies as well as the DigiOcr reading module. qmt can thus offer a product with a very high level of performance.
qmtrelief lighting
QMT technology to improve reading rate
Qmtrelief lighting allows the creation of an image without the color and structure information of the surface, only the relief is visible. It is thus possible to improve the readability of engraved numbers, particularly on a decorated surface.

Reading numbers on watch components

The technologies of the qmtocr-200

The qmtocr-200 is a device for reading numbers on movement or casing components.

DigiOcr OCR reading module

The DigiOcr module integrated into the qmtocr software is specialized for watchmaking. This Deep Learning algorithm for reading characters is trained on several thousand fonts and is supplemented by specific processing to make it more robust and easier to use in an industrial environment. Retraining of the heart is possible for adaptation to particular cases

A compact and ergonomic device

The qmtocr-200 is small (400 x 250 x 250). Adjusting the focus is very simple with a binocular column.

High measurement accuracy

A 12.3MPix camera (4,096 x 3,000 pixels) and high-resolution optics for a field of view of 54 x 40mm

Reading rate above 95%

More than 2,000 fonts, throughout the image, without the need for orientation, on all types of surfaces

Connectivity and data enhancement

Customization for advanced management such as automatic sending of results to databases

qmtrelief lighting

The optional qmtrelief lighting improves the reading rate, particularly for decorated rooms.

QMTMesure software functions
All solutions are based on unique software functions

For optical control

To increase production yields
and the quality of the parts

For aesthetic control

For acoustic and vibration control

Control devices
Measurement and control at the edge of lines and in laboratories
qmt Creations
Five product lines

Acquisition and processing of signals with software, hardware, acquisition hardware and sensors

Autonomous, they are dedicated to measurement for control by sampling in production and for the laboratory

Completely automatic from the feeding of the parts to the control: any non-compliant part is thus ejected and therefore the quality control is 100% guaranteed

Embedded and distributed systems

They operate autonomously with acquisition, processing and control to supervise and automate

Test benches

physical systems allowing to put a product in configurable and controlled conditions of use in order to observe and measure its behavior
