Fully automatic surface inspection of painted car bodies

A perfectly painted surface is every car's staple feature, and thus represents a very emotional measure of quality for the customer. To optimise this surface, two to four robot-assisted systems (depending on the cycle time) of the reflectCONTROL PSS 8005.D type allow objective in-line inspection of each car body. The defects are measured laterally and in depth, and classified on the basis of catalogues and optionally marked. This way, follow-up work and process improvements can be performed precisely as required and easily.

Benefits:

  • Objective 100% inspection of all the vehicles manufactured
  • Employees can concentrate on remedying critical defects and not on identifying them
  • Detection of defects immediately after the painting booth, when they can still be easily reworked
  • Cutting costs by reducing defects
  • Reducing the number of rework lines

Material parameters:

  • Defect sizes of from 10 µm, lateral
  • Local 3D-reconstruction allows the automation of follow-up work
  • Detection rate that is practically independent of colour
  • Not dependent on the robot type
