Quality 4.0 in car body inspection

High-end manufacturing has always required feedback of reliable measurements to adjust parameters precisely and keep components within tolerance. The better and more regular the data provided, the more tightly a production line can be controlled. Nikon’s Laser Radar technology – capable of providing fast, automated, accurate, absolute measurements – clears the way for faster feedback of quality information, leading to exceptional levels of accuracy, high manufacturing efficiency, reduced rework and less scrap.     Offline versus Read more...
