Machine vision (MV) technology can have a major impact on quality control and the production line. Machine vision technology optimises the production process within the automotive industry, where any errors in a highly competitive market can be extremely costly.

MV applications in the automotive industry

Here are some example of where MV applications could be used on the production line within the automotive industry:

  • Identifying dents and dings within the body panels
  • Checking the correct spacing and dimensions of holes within disc brake pads
  • Verifying the correct shape of gear teeth
  • Inspecting engine castings for defects
  • Checking nozzle holes on pumps
  • Inspection of adhesive application
