The Challenge of Following the Short Cycle Time of Mass Production with Inline Inspection


As a Tier 1 supplier for a major original equipment manufacturer (OEM), the company produces high-quality cockpit modules for a brand new car model. This article highlights the challenges that led the company to look for an automated measuring system to inspect their cockpits inline, their customer’s requirements for initiating production for new car models, and their discovery of Creaform’s technology, the MetraSCAN 3D-R. When the company started to look for a solution that could meet all these requirements, they discovered the MetraSCAN 3D-R, which is a robot-mounted optical scanner designed for automated quality control applications and inline inspection. The manufacturer was also searching for a new probing solution to control the dimensions of production fixtures that are used to assemble the cockpits, investigate specific critical features, and act as a backup system for smaller quantities. In short, with Creaform’s MetraSCAN 3D-R and HandyPROBE, the manufacturer has been able to provide its customers with accurate measurements and exhaustive reports in order to satisfy their demand for close-to-perfection cockpits.
