Driving better solutions for automotive
Heaxgon Metrology WLS400A

With time at a premium but quality crucial, a global vehicle manufacturing group has used white light scanning to improve productivity.

Since the introduction of the progressive assembly line in the early twentieth-century the motor industry has remained at the forefront of industrial development, speeding up processes and increasing output. Now, over a hundred years later, every minute still counts in the highly-competitive automotive world.

The difference today is that safety and quality control are no longer nice to have – they are essential. However, the time invested in the inspection process has cost implications for manufacturers and consumers alike. As a result, the automotive industry is increasingly turning to metrology suppliers to help them improve productivity.

For one leading automotive OEM, moving to automated white light scanning systems has cut inspection times by 75% while also improving the quality of the data gathered. Implementation of the Hexagon Metrology WLS400A solution has also brought inspection closer to the production line, enabling quicker reporting of quality issues and shortening the feedback loop. As a result, the impact of inspections on production output is minimised and the effectiveness of control measures maximised to ensure the best possible quality when the vehicles hit the road.

Moving on from traditional inspection methods
In the past, the manufacturer used stationary coordinate measuring machines to inspect stamping parts and closures. With each part typically taking around two hours to measure, this was a huge burden for a group which produces nearly 10 million vehicles each year. The point-based data generated could also be difficult to read and analyse, while response times were not always good enough to cope effectively during ramp up...
