Foam gaskets seals in the line of fire

Kiekert AG, the global leader for automobile door lock systems, now uses digital cross scanners by Nikon Metrology to test the positions and dimensions of sealing lips on door and rear compartment locks. Tactile inspection methods are unable to correctly measure these touch sensitive and complex free-form components. It’s about 30 cms long, eight millimetres thick, smooth, soft, with a curly form. It’s completely insensitive to cold, heat, damp, dust or dryness. It can live for several decades – despite the fact that it spends its entire life Read more...

Prototype parts in the focus of Quality Assurance

Cross Scanner lines digitizing a complex door closing part.

Laser scanner operation at automotive supplier Kiekert AG The dimensional evaluation of prototype parts is integral to the actual serial production. However, depending on material consistency, traditional tactile measurement cannot provide the necessary integrated overall view of measured components. For this reason, Kiekert AG, the Heiligenhaus-based global leader in vehicle locking systems, primarily relies on digital Cross Scanners for prototype inspection. BMW, Daimler Benz, VW, Ford, General Motors, Fiat, Renault, Nissan,…. More than Read more...

Laser scanners replace tactile probing for body-in-white inspection at FIAT-TOFAS

Turkish automotive manufacturer FIAT-Tofaş is implementing new inspection methodologies for their diagnostic measurements of sheet metal components and body-in-white (BIW) assemblies. A key element involves the installation of Nikon Metrology XC65Dx-LS Cross Scanners and CAMIO multi-sensor metrology software, which are retrofitted on an existing Hexagon double-arm coordinate measuring machine (CMM) at Bursa. Inspection is now twice as fast compared to touch probes and provides better insight, reducing the time needed to diagnose problems and raising Read more...

High accuracy horizontal arm CMM inspects next-generation automotive fixtures

Materialise Group spin-off, RapidFit, has deployed a horizontal-arm co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) from Nikon Metrology to check the accuracy of bespoke gauging and holding fixtures it produces for the automotive industry.   Based in Leuven, Belgium, RapidFit has reduced costs and lead-times by making use of additive manufacture (AM), also known as 3D printing, to produce workpiece locators that are added to standard fixture components. The technology enables vehicle production to be streamlined, as innovative fixtures can be constructed with Read more...
