Automotive

Strict rules and guidelines lead to high quality demands in the automotive sector. The functional surfaces of automotive parts must meet especially high requirements since they are directly linked to wear and the road safety of a vehicle.

Good quality management has now become essential for the production of automotive parts. When choosing a suitable inspection method, both economical and technical aspects should be considered.

Why Machine Vision?

Manual sample inspection has long become dated in modern production. Today, components must be inspected fast (in time with the production), extremely precisely, and 100%. The use of automated machine-vision systems contributes significantly to constantly good product quality and a crucial reduction of inspection costs.

SAC Inspection Systems

SAC inspection systems ensure a cost-efficient and objective inspection even with demanding components and high part throughput.

Even complicated inspection tasks are performed reliably: On sophisticated surfaces, defects in the µm range are detected and complex geometries can be inspected inline, contactless, and 100%.

SAC inspection systems are tailored exactly to your production or handling process. They can be quickly integrated and are easy to understand and operate.

The pseudo-reject rate is reduced to a minimum while no defect is missed – this guarantees the highest quality.

Of course we always make sure to meet the customer's requirements regarding the acceptance of the agreed performance of our systems.

Typical Inspection Scenarios:

  • Gears: surface inspection, leakage test of the gearbox, geometrical inspection and assembly inspection of cogwheels, serial number identification
  • Engine block: inspection of sealing surfaces, check for completeness and dimensional accuracy (e.g. are the drill holes at the right place?)
  • Piston rings: surface inspection, dimensional accuracy, production status
  • Brake lines: leakage test, surface inspection
  • Brake pads, brake linings: 3D inspection of dimensional accuracy and planarity
  • Rim inspection: geometry, completeness check (valve hole, logos)
  • Airbags: fabric inspection (mesh size, weaving faults)
  • Control elements (e.g. A/C, radio): completeness of the knobs, checking the laser engraving of writing and symbols)
  • Injection parts: surface inspection (biting edge)
  • Connectors of ABS, brake system, airbag, control unit: pin inspection

Application Examples:
