Automotive Industry Realities

The automotive industry’s metrology needs vary widely, encompassing dimensional and form measurement, near-line and in-line applications, complex geometries and physical and automated inspection. Manufacturers must find reliable, tailored products and solutions to gather the measurement data they need—and seamless ways to integrate and analyze it.

Shrinking Production Cycles

As design-to-production cycles shrink and automotive components become more sophisticated, manufacturers must find a way to increase throughput and efficiency without compromising the comfort, safety or capability of the vehicles they produce.

Multiple Integrations

Testing the various components in today’s connected vehicles requires a broad range of measurement solutions, from precision hand tools to large CMMs, vision measurement systems and data management. To accurately evaluate a vehicle, manufacturers must seamlessly integrate data from these disparate products and solutions.
