Automotive Metrology Moves to the Shop Floor
with Optical 3D Scanning & Probing

In automotive shop floor metrology, speed and accuracy are critical to meeting reduced cycle time requirements and tighter part tolerance demands.

Moving metrology from the traditional quality lab to the shop floor is key to improving product quality and optimizing manufacturing efficiency. However, this requires measurement tools capable of taking 3D measurements in an industrial environment; in other words, portable, accurate, and easy to use. Unfortunately, traditional CMMs and arm-based measurement tools are not well-suited for shop floor environments because they are not very portable and are sensitive to vibration and other environment instabilities.

Now, optical 3D metrology systems, such as the Creaform HandySCAN, MetraSCAN and HandyPROBE, use dynamic referencing to track the measured part and the measuring tool simultaneously, and offer the portability, speed and accuracy to measure parts rights on the shop floor.
