eliminating production errors optimizing quality and controlling traceability are essential to improving the quality of vehicles no other company does this better for vehicle manufacturers and auto parts suppliers and Cognex Cognex has in a match range of solutions including 2d and 3d vision systems and industrial barcode readers ideal for taking on the toughest and most common automotive applications I can tell you all about this or you can come and see for yourself leading automotive manufacturers and parts suppliers relying Cognex to manufacture the highest quality products for example the defective brake pads can create performance and safety issues eliminating defects ensures the highest quality brake pads to deliver to consumers brake pad manufacturers use Cognex 3d vision systems to inspect each part as it moves down the line this 3d view enables manufacturers to inspect every visible surface drastically improving park quality and eliminating defects it can be hard to detect with the human eye it’s important that automotive manufacturers ensure that parts are assembled correctly incomplete or damaged components can affect product quality and functionality and may result in costly recalls and dissatisfied customers Cognex insight mm vision sensors are used to inspect for the presence of vital components during the assembly process in this example the insight mm is checking that there are two clips on a dashboard panel insert if present the dashboard panel insert can be securely placed in position if absent it is returned to be reworked part verification is an important step in any manufacturing process to avoid expensive delays and ensure the product is ready for the next step in the assembly process manual inspection of control panels can be problematic and time-consuming for example the applique is a critical part of the instrument cluster if it moves it won’t be placed correctly resulting in false speedometer and tachometer readings that’s where Cognex comes in manufacturers use Cognex insight vision systems for instrument cluster inspection automatically inaccurately aligning the position of the applique our geometric pattern matching vision tools reliably control panel assembly reducing costly recalls and rework car park supplies these traceability to track parts to the supply chain cylinder heads engine blocks and transmission housings are all tracked using serial numbers cast into their body these numbers are used to identify the parts through the final machining stage and are recorded for recall management if needed when a defective part is identified the root cause and operation is determined manufacturers use Cognex vision tools for fast an error free confirmation of the serial numbers the Cognex OCR max character reading algorithm has the flexibility to tolerate changes in the appearance of individual characters and the background of the engine parts resulting in 99.99% read rates additionally card next state of Manhattan L readers are used to read the most challenging and hard to read dot pin codes marked into the metal surfaces of engine parts many-body panel manufacturers turn to cognate division to help optimize product quality robots powered with 2d and 3d vision systems inspect pick-and-place sheet steel from racks into welding stations our 3d vision is used to verify the correct amount of adhesive is dispensed on body panels prior to spot welding manufacturers also use our 3d vision system to inspect the quality of the wells in the body shop and to ensure the correct number of rivets are present on the body panel and a seated correctly rivet inspection enables vehicle manufacturers to greatly reduce rework costs when automotive parts are placed or assembled incorrectly manufacturers experienced delays and unwanted retooling costs it’s a better track these parts to decodes are etched into each and every part for better tracking and traceability throughout the manufacturing assembly process in many factory environments these codes can be difficult to read that’s why manufacturers turn to Cognex fix mount barcode readers that wheat codes even in the most challenging conditions data man fixed mount readers we didn’t store these codes in a QLS system where they can be tracked for optimal quality and traceability along the assembly process and beyond time manufactures require reliable code reading and inspection solutions throughout all production stages read and inspection failures can cause slower throughput production inefficiencies costly rework and reputation damage Cognex readers achieve the highest read rates of a traceability throughout the life of the tire tire manufacturers put our 3d vision system to work reading and verifying embossed text or logos the 3d systems can handle a variety of speeds and also have the ability to scan the entire sidewall leading automotive companies choose carton acts a global network of vision experts have helped solve more vision and ID applications than anyone a broad range of solutions readily integrate with factory automation systems to help minimize downtime reduce recalls and quickly achieve ROI count on Cognex to help you build your vision
