Automation Project. Automotive customer. Germany. 1

Automation is the next gen­er­a­tion in 3D metrol­ogy. Automotive indus­try was always one step ahead imple­ment­ing new tech­nolo­gies to gain pro­duc­tiv­ity, to reduce scrap and most of all to pro­duce safer cars. At @Metrologic Group, we are proud to have been work­ing with the lead­ing names in auto­mo­tive indus­try for 40 years now and have been relent­lessly sup­port­ing our cus­tomers dur­ing 3D metrol­ogy journey.
As we work with lead­ing names in auto­mo­tive world­wide, as well as their sub­con­trac­tors, we recently suc­ceeded the imple­men­ta­tion of a unique automa­tion project and would like to share the key take-​aways with you.
Below is an illus­tra­tion of a recent automa­tion project imple­mented with an automa­tive cus­tomer in Germany.
  1. The chal­lenge: The cus­tomer already had a 3D metrol­ogy robot cell, but the robot was still man­u­ally dri­ven — so the client could­n’t really ben­e­fit from robo­t­ized 3D con­trol with an accel­er­ated metrol­ogy through­put, per­for­mance & less human errors.
  2. The roll-​out: Despite a com­pet­i­tive call for pro­pos­als, only i‑Robot met cus­tomer expec­ta­tions by truly enabling 3D metrol­ogy automa­tion via a retro­fit of the exis­tent cell. Not only could the client lever­age an impor­tant invest­ment in a robot cell and make it work, but he can mea­sure now more parts where a CMM sim­ply can not make it!
  3. The ben­e­fit: This is a first automa­tion project for this his­tor­i­cal key player of the German auto­mo­tive mar­ket, world­wide known and whose name we can not dis­close. From our cus­tomers words: “With Metrolog i‑Robot, no need to be a robot spe­cial­ist, our staff was trained really fast, the soft­ware is acces­si­ble and easy to use. We suc­ceeded tak­ing our 3D Metrology & man­u­fac­tur­ing processes to a com­pletely new level!”
In case you’re still think­ing about the ins and outs of an automa­tion project and would like to under­stand what you are really expect­ing, or like our cus­tomer, you are impa­tient to make your 3D metrol­ogy robot work and Contact us for a demo/​ any question.
