New Application: Quality assurance on BMW convertibles

09/2009Mobile optical 3D coordinate measuring technology is used for quality assurance on the production line in the BMW Regensburg plant. On the assembly line the photogrammetric system then enables flexible inspection to be carried out during manufacture. Thus trends and deviations in production can be detected at an early stage. As result of using optical metrology rework time is reduced and production costs are cut down significantly. Also Quality Management can be specifically improved by means of process capability studies.

Measuring Systems: TRITOP

Keywords: Process optimization in production line, Quality assurance in production, Validation of fitting dimensions, Calibration stability of assembly jigs, MCS, PCS
