Perceptron Secures Optical Tracking Robot Gauging Orders

Perceptron has announced an order of 24 AutoGauge® systems with AccuSite™ technology for the accurate, in-line measurement of closure panels by a premium global automotive manufacturer.

“These 24 AutoGauge® systems utilize Perceptron’s latest AccuSite optical tracking technology and Helix®evo 3D scanning sensor to remove the robot’s limited accuracy from the system performance. An absolute accurate system eliminates the need to perform expensive and time-consuming data correlation events with other devices, providing accuracy to the operator on the first part for making critical high-speed, data-driven decisions,” said Rick Van Valkenburg, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing for Perceptron.

Perceptron has combined over 30 years of metrology and manufacturing experience to create a truly absolute, correlation-free robotic measurement solution. As the Helix evo sensor scans various features on the closures, the AccuSite tracker instantly locates the sensor and records its exact location and orientation in space. The AccuSite option only requires the robot to be a simple mover and eliminates all mechanical drift and temperature influence from the measurement results, without markers or other part preparation.

Van Valkenburg added, “We have received many requests from our customers around the globe for this add-on solution, and are in the process of installing the first six of these systems in Europe. AutoGauge with AccuSite will provide high value part inspection, optimizing the customer’s vehicle launch and continuing to increase ROI throughout the vehicle lifecycle with auditing, troubleshooting, and process monitoring.”

The Perceptron AccuSite robot optical tracking takes the robot mechanics out of the accuracy equation and provides the most accurate robotic measurement solution available for the manufacturing floor. As the Helix-evo sensor scans the measurement features, the AccuSite tracker locates the artifacts attached to the sensor and records exact location and orientation in space. The AccuSite only requires the robot to be a simple mover and eliminates all mechanical drift and temperature influence from the measurement results, without markers or any other part preparation.
