Ensure product safety and absolute manufacturing precision with vision intelligence

With so many big challenges facing the automotive industry right now, every opportunity for improving efficiency, quality or productivity should be seized upon. That’s where machine vision for automotive comes in. From supply chain delays, and the knock on effects these can have on production, to the impact of product recalls and reworks. Not to mention the raw material price rises, energy costs, inflationary pressures and manpower problems that every big manufacturer is dealing with. The pressure is across the industry to do more with less; less time, tighter margins, fewer people, and to get it right first time, every time. 

The automotive industry has led the way in terms of factory automation. Now, as the market shifts towards electric and net zero, manufacturers have an opportunity to fix legacy issues and gear up production for industry 4.0 and the factory of the future; where full automation and ‘lights out’ manufacturing are the only real way to remain competitive.

Prevent downtime

Every second that an automotive line is stopped costs thousands in production delays, missed deliveries or reputational damage. Vision intelligence can automate and improve quality control to prevent potentially costly manufacturing errors and reduce factory downtime, reworks or recalls.

Complex inspections

Vision intelligence can carry out even the most complex surface inspections on vehicle assembly lines – from 2D and 3D object identification to presence and absence verification, dimensional gauging, code reading, parts recognition, final assembly verification and more.
