Automotive industry – turnkey solutions with vision

Machine vision – for the mobility of the future

The automotive industry is among the pioneers of automation, and robots have played a major role in determining manufacturing processes in that industry for decades. However, the potential of robotics to provide efficient, high-quality production is far from exhausted. With the mobility transformation, new and adapted manufacturing processes, as well as systems for production automation, quality inspection and metrology, are required. As full-service provider, inos and the Grenzebach Group support the automotive industry with innovative, efficient and flexible turnkey solutions.

Modern sensor technology combined with innovative image processing also promises to network humans and machines: with automation solutions from inos and Grenzebach, you can turn your production site into a “smart factory”.

Exact position recognition, optimum application

For optimal application in fully automated machining cells, precise determination of the position of the component to be machined is absolutely necessary. As a system partner for car body manufacturers and final assembly, inos offers them the possibility of determining components’ position in 2D or 3D depending on the application and requirement – stationary or robot-guided, partial or complete.

With inos’ two-dimensional and three-dimensional position recognition, the robot always knows where to reach.

Gap and flush measurement for car body construction and final assembly
With the help of the gap and flush measurement of inos deviations can be detected early and the quality can be assured constantly.

Quality assurance for the automotive industry

The geometry of vehicles is becoming ever more complex, gap dimensions ever tighter. Wind noise or an unattractive opening because gap and transition dimensions are not correct are completely avoidable. To prevent this from happening, inos quality assurance means that gap and transition dimensions in vehicle construction are meticulously inspected. Quality assurance under pressure!

Detect deviations early, enable consistent quality and avoid manual rework – you too can benefit from inos’ precise gap and flush measurement solutions.

Verify car features systematically

From bolts to component groups – no one is happy with 99 percent quality. In modern automotive production, there is no room for rework or rejects. As a full-service provider to the automotive industry, inos offers a solution for quality inspection. In assembly inspection, production steps and components are checked continuously, reliably and efficiently: for their geometry, assembly, completeness and many other parameters.

Like many well-known OEMs and suppliers to the automotive industry, you too can rely on inos’ process know-how in quality assurance and improve your production quality with intelligent assembly control.
