Glove AOI Inspection System: Benefits and Features

As the world’s leading supplier of medical gloves (examination and surgical gloves), Malaysia supplies more than 50% of the global demand. Thanks to the country’s rich natural resources and high natural rubber production, Malaysia is expected to retain its leading position in glove manufacturing and export, generating RM38 billion from exports in 2021, higher than the RM35.3 billion posted in 2020, according to the Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Malaysia’s glove industry is booming. However, due to the global strong demand for gloves, stiff competition among glove manufacturers is expected as more players enter the industry. To stay competitive, more and more glove manufacturers in Malaysia are adopting Glove AOI Inspection System.

The state-of-the-art inspection technology brought over by AOI has drastically reduced the issues and complications faced by the glove manufacturing industry ensuring that costs are kept to the minimum by detecting faults early in the production line.

Glove AOI Inspection Systems

The Glove AOI inspection system is distinctively designed to inspect the glove quality during the pre- and post-strip processes. It comes with full modules covering the inspection for different parts of the gloves and is proven to offer growth and success to glove manufacturers.

Glove AOI inspection ensures that:

  • the product is of high quality before leaving the production line
  • the products are built correctly and without manufacturing faults

Module Key Features

A 360° full inspection from fingertip to body, body to former.

  • Inspection is on the fly connected to the manufacturing process
  • The system fitted into the machine
  • The system shares one processing station (centralized server)


Glove AOI inspection is suitable for:

  • Latex
  • Rubber
  • Nitrile gloves
