New Technologies for Automobile Manufacturing

Automotive

Nowadays modern image processing systems are used in all aspects of quality control and process control. These control and inspection systems have come to be used not just by car makers, but also by their suppliers and automotive workshops. Digital cameras are used for example directly on the suppliers' lines to inspect O rings for use in ABS systems. And in workshops, systems for optical axis measurement are a major labor saver.

Basler cameras are extraordinarily well-suited for applications found in the automotive industry. Among their features:

  • High image quality
  • High speeds
  • High reliability
  • Small design
  • Shock resistance

Typical Areas of Use and Suitable Cameras

  • Control Technology, Robot Control and Positioning (Robot Guidance)

    The areas of use of cameras in control technology, robot control and positioning (Robot Guidance) include, for example, welded seams, clearance, and quality control, assembly tasks, and identification as well as orientation.
