Automotive

Automotive Application

Car designers and production engineers work together to achieve the perfect design of a car, which requires a harmonized combination of aesthetics and functional requirements. Generally, it takes several years to turn a design concept of a new car model into an actual product available to the market.

A wide range of EMOs and automotive part suppliers are involved in designing, developing, and manufacturing motor vehicles. They are meeting the challenge of designing cars in a short amount of time to meet the fast-paced growth of the market. Cutting-edge technologies, including 3D scanning, are what they seek to reform the automotive industry.

Scantech allows automakers to tap into their potential to the full by capturing full-field and accurate 3D data of automotive parts with our high-precision 3D scanners and automated 3D measurement solutions. It is a way for them to accelerate product development and streamline workflows of inspections. It helps them to yield enormous benefits in quality and efficiency.

Product Development

Product Development

Understanding future vehicles and seeking inspiration is the first step to developing a new car. Generally, design ideas are presented in hand-drawn sketches that are converted into 3D models. With our advanced 3D laser scanners, engineers can easily and quickly acquire 3D data of workpieces to build a 3D model ready for further design.

Inspection

Inspection

Scantech allows automotive manufacturers to capture full-field data of parts and generate inspection reports, which is helpful for dimensional inspection of complex objects and curvature surfaces. It can help you to ensure that the goods supplied and manufactured can meet agreed-upon requirements so that no issues arise during the assembly.

Automated 3D Measurement

Automated 3D Measurement

In the automotive industry, sheet metal parts, especially stamping parts, are widely used. Every minute, thousands of stamping parts are produced. Inspection of stamping parts at the right time and in the right manner is crucial to ensuring high-quality manufacturing. In the highly competitive automotive industry, it is a way for automobile manufacturers to maintain an edge over competitors.

Guarantee the Quality with 3D Metrology Solutions

Scantech’s 3D scanners support on-site and non-contact measurement, efficiently delivering precise measurement data. These 3D scanners can be used for off-line, near-line, or in-line measurements. Through an advanced algorithm, our devices scan and generate real-time point clouds using blue lasers. With a variety of scanning angles, users can capture data deep within the gap or along the edge of the parts. The data from white-in-body and sub-assemblies that have been scanned can be stored digitally. Having complete inspection data allows users to identify issues that cannot be detected during the early stage.

Inspection of Car Body

Inspection of Car Body

In order to assemble a car correctly, the body-in-white must be carefully inspected to ensure the parts are matched and that the connecting features are aligned correctly. Automotive assembly lines have hundreds of inspection points, including in-process monitoring, subassembly monitoring, and critical inspection of many points on the assembled body-in-white. Complex features to be inspected include surfaces, holes, slots, nuts, and studs, which vary in materials and colors. Scantech’s handheld 3D scanner doesn’t require rigid measurement setup and can handle various inspection tasks. Critical parameters can be easily obtained for a wide range of uses.

Automotive Gap & Flush Inspection

Automotive Gap & Flush Inspection

A car that is less aerodynamically designed is more prone to wind noises. The manufacturer must identify the hidden reasons to ensure a smooth and quiet ride for further customers. By tracing the data captured by a 3D scanner, automakers can analyze the dimensions of the door surface and gaps between doors and mounted vehicle bodies. Scantech’s lightweight 3D scanner KSCAN-Magic is equipped with five working modes, including large area scanning and superfine scanning. By conducting on-site inspections, technicians can obtain the 3D data, verify possible reasons and identify problems quickly.
