Manufacturing robots have been vital to the automobile manufacturing for decades. Productive, efficient, flexibile, cost-effective… presenting so many advantages, that they are continuously deployed at a large scale. Industrial robots never need to rest, never lose focus and rarely make mistakes—if maintained correctly.
In automotive and subcontractor industries, the robotics application are various :
- High precision
- Arc and Spot Welding
- Material Removal (cutting, grinding, deburring, drilling, etc.)
- Handling / Pick and Place
- Packing and labeling
- Machine Tool Loading/Unloading
- Part Transfer
Alongside addressing manufacturing capacity and workers safety, quality is one of the main drivers for robot adoption in the automotive industry. There is no surprise that robots are also performing quality control and three dimensional measurement.
We are proud to have been at the pulse of industry innovation, as in 2010 we were the first to develop and then market in 2012 a visionary robotic inspection technology. We introduced robot-based quality control with laser radar technology to provide full-field data about geometry and shape, including hole patterns, trim & spring and hemmed edges, of sheet metal of sheet-metal components up to the size of vehicle side panels directly on the shop floor. We created breakthrough value that resonated with customers and industry experts, and still does.
