Quality Gate 4200 Series

 

Product Overview

Technology

Tehnology highlights

  • Photogrammetric measurement
  • Mapvision RAIC® multi-camera system with static cameras and LED illumination system
  • Software based solution: No robots or other moving parts involved in measurement

Technology benefits

  • Fastest in-line measurement with CMM comparable accuracy
  • Most reliable results: The unique Mapvision QI function provides continuous monitoring of accuracy with automatic alerts
  • Stable calibration
  • Software alignment does not require accurate positioning of the part
  • Unique flexilibity: Can inspect different variants in one system
  • Inspection of completely different parts is possible with the double shuttle solution

 

Key Facts

Cycle time

  • Typically 30 seconds in automatic operation, depending on line automation and part loading

Accuracy

  • Repeatability: ~ ± 0.02 mm
  • Correlation to CMM: ~ ± 0.1 mm
  • System prefomance is verified with MSA Type-1 and Type-1/3 studies, using production parts

Maximum size of measured part

  • Standard system: 1500 x 900 x 600 mm (length x width x height)
  • Customised solutions allow even  larger parts to be inspected

System size

  • Gate Unit footprint 2.9 x 2.2 m

Number of inspected features

  • As many as you need, typically 50 - 200 features

Inspections

  • 3D measurement with x,y and z data of each feature
  • Calculation of angles, distances, etc.
  • Visual inspection with presence and orientation of components, like weld nuts, weld studs and clip nuts

Parts to be inspected

  • Cross car beams: welded steel, welded aluminium, die cast magnesium
  • Subframes: welded steel or aluminium
  • Twist beam axles with camber and toe measurement
  • Other body and chassis parts with similar characteristics

 

System Configurations

AD1 42: Automatic door

A robot loads the part from one side

AD 2 42: Two automatic doors

  •  A robot loads the part from one side and a second robot unloads it from the other side. This option allows a faster loading cycle

 

AS1 42: Automatic single shuttle

  • Part is loaded to a fixture on a  moving shuttle, by robot or manually. Manual operation requires shuttle HMI kit that provides the required user interface and safety equipment.

MS1 42: Manual single shuttle

  • A human operator loads the part and runs the shuttle manually

AS2 42: Automatic double shuttle

  • A system with a double shuttle is used when two different parts are inspected in parallel. For this, the system can have a different holding fixture on each shuttle.

MS2 42: Manual double shuttle

  • Parts are loaded manually and the shuttle is operated manually. The manual double shuttle comes with Manual operation kit that ensures only one shuttle can be inserted at a time.
