No margin for errors
A modern car contains thousands of components, to be mounted and assembled in the correct order and with great precision. The Just In Time principle requires every supplier to deliver the parts at the right moment, leaving no room for errors. Inline quality control and auditing by means of vision technology are essential to the production and assembly processes. In the automotive industry, Vistalink works directly with well-known car manufacturers, the coordinating systems integrators and the First Tier Suppliers.
Solution in the spotlight: Tire DOT Code Reading
The laser triangulation principle enabled Vistalink to develop a system for the fully automatic identification of a tire by its DOT Code in only a few seconds. Our vision camera illuminates the rotating tire and processes the images into an elongated 3-dimensional profile. Specialized vision software then automatically searches the image for the DOT Code and reads it out. This code provides the assembly line with all the information it needs to correctly mount the right tire.
