Reducing the Cost of Quality in Automotive BiW


Automotive production relies on quality to maintain an automaker’s brand image within its customer base. But in the production process, suboptimal dimensional quality can lengthen lead times and cause cost overruns related to the reworking of non-compliant parts or forced downstream production adjustments.

Although traditional metrology techniques in the automotive industry can be time-consuming and costly, they have remained largely unchanged for decades. Quality 4.0 is a vision for quality that follows the lead of the Industry 4.0 concept. This 60-minute Webinar examines how APDIS Laser Radar, as part of Quality 4.0, offers a unique alternative to the traditional car body inspection methods, providing accurate, absolute measurement data anywhere in the factory. With drastically increased measurement productivity, it’s a way to continuously monitor and improve quality throughout production.

Webinar topics include:

  • The issues of the traditional metrology approach with real-life examples
  • The real day-to-day costs of these technologies
  • Laser Radar benefits
  • How Laser Radar fits into Quality 4.0
