Fixed gap and flush stereovision measurement station that can be integrated into a production line

Gap and flush inspection for sub-assemblies and full-body assemblies for automotive manufacturing as well as aerospace, railway, and naval manufacturing

Working principle

The cameras and lighting are installed in a tunnel mounted over the production line. Wide angle stereovision technology measures the whole vehicle using just 6 pairs of cameras. As the vehicle passes along the line, the lights are switched on in a predefined sequence programmed to suit the vehicle being inspected. All measurements are saved by the integrated SPC software and the overall result is transmitted to the manufacturing process controller. A summary of the results is displayed showing the location and type of any faults by means of a colour code. The non-compliant areas of the vehicle requiring rework can then be identified precisely. The manufacturing process is tracked in real time, avoiding any risk of delay.
