Automated Surface Inspection

Automated inspection and the automotive industry

Saturday 10th December, 2016

Machine vision technology can benefit every aspect of the automotive industry, from inspecting soft interiors to the raw materials that make up the key components.

Every industry is represented during the manufacturing of automobiles, from electrical wiring to machinery and everything in between.

With the advances in machine vision technology, increasingly more faults are picked up, reducing waste and your overall costs.

Shelton Vision uses machine vision cameras that can audit results and trace deviations, rejecting faulty components in real time. We develop unique machine vision applications, purposely built for your unique requirements.


Inspection requirements vary by application, from a simple check for the presence of parts to more complex tasks that manual inspectors would find it difficult to spot on a consistent basis.

These faults are recorded by our line scan cameras, the images are processed by our WebSPECTOR system, providing consistent data that helps classify defects in real-time. The final commercial decision is always made by a person, guided by the vision system results. Helping you retain existing customers and attracting new ones.

Machine vision technology guarantees quality throughout the life cycle of vehicles, from the production of parts to the finished vehicle.

With over 100 years of combined machine vision system design and development experience within the company, Shelton can deliver reliable solutions to your automotive manufacturing environment.
