Automated Surface Inspection

Automotive automation systems

Wednesday 25th July, 2018

Machine vision plays a vital role in the heavily automated automotive sector. Overall, machine vision inspection is expected to grow 8% annually by 2022. One of the major drivers for growth is the demand for automated inspection systems within the automotive industry.

Shelton’s WebSPECTOR solution virtually eliminates customer claims and provides consistent data for process improvement.

Machine vision is used in a number of ways throughout the automotive supply chain and is largely responsible for the quality of the end product.

Another reason why automated inspection is important for the automotive industry is because it is highly accurate compared to manual inspection. Increased throughput is another major positive but the accuracy of machine vision solutions reduces waste and keeps your end customer happy.

Every part that goes into a vehicle must fit and function perfectly. Manual inspectors are far less accurate than a camera, and any defects in a part can be dangerous for the consumer and costly for the manufacturer.
