The APDIS Gap & Flush System from Nikon delivers a new approach to vehicle-on-wheels, moving-line inspection and quality control.
Panel and closure gap and flush can directly impact a customer’s perception of the quality of a vehicle and brand. Reliable measurement of these features allows process feedback and quality control, but needs to be done automatically and safely whilst the vehicle is moving. This is provided by the APDIS Gap & Flush system.
APDIS Laser Radar Technology
Already used around the world for automotive inspection, APDIS Laser Radar brings a new dimension to moving-line gap and flush measurements.
Integrated, Automated, Flexible
With three Laser Radars covering a large volume, measurements are synchronised with conveyor movement and the system is easily configurable for different vehicle variants.
Large Stand-Off, Safe Operation
Measurements are taken at a large stand-off distance with a single linear movement, avoiding accidental collisions with the vehicle and ensuring operator safety.
Large stand-offs and linear rails simplify programming and installation. Independent tracking and alignment remove the need for conveyor interlocks
Movement of the Laser Radar is automatically synchronised with that of the vehicle, enabling modifications to be made off-line, without needing to stop the line.
No complex robot programming, in-built safety just around the Laser Radars and an open frame lead to minimal disruption to the production line.
