The largest automotive modeling and styling CMM platform in China was recently completed by Automated Precision, Inc (API). The platform is over 40 meters long and fitted with several pairs of measuring/milling machine arms spanning the platform allowing for the styling, development and assembly 5-6 entire vehicles simultaneously. It is believed that the machine sets the record in China as the longest modeling and styling platform.
In recent years, the Chinese government has passed a strategy to encourage the development of the automotive industry which brings many opportunities for metrology hardware and software suppliers. As a modeling platform supplier and integrator, API is working on growing its business in this expansive market sector.
This 40 meter platform is a new milestone for API after the successful installation of two 24 meter platforms for Great Wall Auto and the Beijing Auto Research Institute.
