Robotic inspec­tion

Forging the fac­tory of the Future

Manufacturing robots have been vital to the auto­mo­bile man­u­fac­tur­ing for decades. Productive, effi­cient, flex­i­ble, cost-​effective… pre­sent­ing so many advan­tages, that they are con­tin­u­ously deployed at a large scale. Industrial robots never need to rest, never lose focus and rarely make mistakes—if main­tained correctly.

In auto­mo­tive and sub­con­trac­tor indus­tries, the robot­ics appli­ca­tion are various:

  • High pre­ci­sion
  • Assembling
  • Arc and Spot Welding
  • Material Removal (cut­ting, grind­ing, debur­ring, drilling, etc.)
  • Painting
  • Repeatability
  • Handling /​ Pick and Place
  • Packing and labeling
  • Palletizing
  • Machine Tool Loading/​Unloading
  • Part Transfer
  • Assembly
  • Dispensing
  • Fixturing

Alongside address­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing capac­ity and work­ers safety, qual­ity is one of the main dri­vers for robot adop­tion in the auto­mo­tive indus­try. There is no sur­prise that robots are also per­form­ing qual­ity con­trol and three-​dimensional measurement.

Revolutionary tech­nol­ogy to sup­port your growth today and tomorrow

Robotic inspection 3
Shaping the future of 3D metrol­ogy. We make it happen!

We are proud to have been at the pulse of indus­try inno­va­tion, as in 2010 we were the first to develop and then mar­ket in 2012 a vision­ary robotic inspec­tion tech­nol­ogy. We intro­duced robot-​based qual­ity con­trol with laser radar tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide full-​field data about geom­e­try and shape, includ­ing hole pat­terns, trim & spring and hemmed edges, of sheet metal of sheet-​metal com­po­nents up to the size of vehi­cle side pan­els directly on the shop floor. We cre­ated break­through value that res­onated with cus­tomers and indus­try experts, and still does.

Robotic inspec­tion marks a new era for qual­ity control

Our robotic inspec­tion solu­tions are the answer to many chal­lenges in qual­ity com­pli­ance control

  • Improve uptime and ensure faster qual­ity checking
  • Include fast root cause analysis
  • More accu­rate qual­ity testing
  • Relieve 3D mea­sure­ment bottlenecks
  • Easy inte­gra­tion
  • Scalable solu­tion enabling con­tin­u­ous qual­ity improve­ment and over­all pro­duc­tion processes
  • Achieve impor­tant sav­ings (less human error, early defect detection).
