Japanese Auto Company Awards Perceptron Robot Gauging Project

Perceptron, Inc., a leading global provider of 3D automated metrology solutions and coordinate measuring machines, has announced that a prominent Japanese automotive manufacturer selected Perceptron for a robot gauging project for their compact vehicle program.

The project includes two in-line gauging stations. Station one features four robot-mounted Helix HDR sensors and six stationary Helix sensors to measure approximately 100 inspection points on the vehicle’s underbody. Station two includes four robot-mounted Helix HDR sensors to measure 94 locations on the vehicle’s framed body. These two flexible robotic systems will be configured to measure one vehicle model manufactured at the plant.

“Winning this project is a tribute to Perceptron’s global support capability. This customer has manufacturing facilities around the world for this particular vehicle and we had participation from our offices in Japan, China, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States,” commented, Rick Van Valkenburg, Perceptron Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing.

Perceptron’s dimensional gauging solutions provide a real-time view of the customer’s production process, allowing them to make rapid adjustments and instantaneously evaluate the results. Both gauging stations also include Perceptron’s Argus software to continuously monitor the 100 percent measurement data and highlight trends to guide and prioritize process issues for the customer.

The gauging stations are currently in the final stage of installation.
