Why Machine Vision for Automotive?
Rising labor costs and gaps in the workforce are driving more automotive manufacturers to turn to automation to lower production costs. At the same time, actionable data has become an increasingly important guiding light for improving yield and efficiency.
While machine vision systems can help solve key production and quality challenges for automotive manufacturers, they have historically been difficult to use and maintain. Samsara’s VS2-series simplifies the machine vision experience by combining powerful hardware with a truly intuitive user interface. Coupled with an integrated traceability database and an array of flexible inspection tools, the VS2-series offers a complete solution for automated product inspection in the automotive space.
Solve Key Business Challenges
Verify that every part conforms to strict tolerances using measurement tools. Gauge critical dimensions and placement.
Verify that every part is assembled correctly over large areas. Confirm that every component is present and aligned.
Confirm that products are consistent in appearance. Ensure that they are free of dents, scratches, and any other defects that could compromise safety.
Read and verify the accuracy of 1D and 2D barcodes, text, and numbers to create traceability for all components, from wheels to engine blocks, in each final assembly.
Common Inspections & Setup
Our robust software provides a complete set of easy-to-configure inspection tools. Albums allow you to emulate, test, and optimize inspection programs before deploying to production environments. Once configured, inspections can be deployed across multiple cameras in just a few clicks.
Verify that various parts, like the piston shown here, are the correct shape and dimensions.
Quality and Appearance
Ensure that all components, like these brake pads, are produced without flaws and detect the presence of any defects, dents, scratches, wear, and discoloration.
Confirm that all pieces and parts are assembled to specifications with no missing components.
Track and Trace
Create component traceability by verifying and recording barcode information in the Dashboard.
