Laser scanning for automotive components
A headlight, a suspension part, a wheel rim, a bumper or a plastic air filter box; every automotive component has its own dimensional specifications. Quick inspection checks on the shop floor or near the production machine can be executed using a handheld inspection system.
The MMDx scanner is compatible with Nikon Metrology arms and most leading 3rd party articulated arms, including Faro and Romer / CimCore. For applications involving larger parts, the MMDx technology is also available as part of the K-Scan Optical CMM system. This unique scanning system allows the operator to freely walk around and take scans as desired.
For more accurate and systematic inspection, Nikon Metrology offers LK CMM and
CAMIO, supporting touch trigger, analog scanning and laser scanning measurement.
Trim parts used as part of vehicle interior set specific quality control challenges. LC and XC laser scanners yields accurate and repeatable results because it is non-contact inspection technology that is excellently suited for digitizing soft and fragile parts. At the same time, laser scanning acquires much more measurement data, allowing a part’s contours and geometric features of to be evaluated thoroughly. Focus' graphic CAD comparison charts provide powerful insight into local surface deviation, resulting in fewer iteration steps.
CT for automotive component inspection
CT introduces faster problem solving and more effective decision making with the micron level accuracy and high resolution images. It is becoming the dependable inspection solution for a rapidly growing number of automotive manufacturers.
To guarantee absolute confidence in component quality, CT is the go-to tool for quality assurance labs around the world. The infinitely flexible technology is used for first article inspection, troubleshooting or as a wholly automated inspection system, providing the foundations on which the quality control process can be built on. From castings, impellers and composites, to plastics, electronics and additive manufactured (AM) parts, CT provides the inside insight.
