Go Back

Technology, Agile Manufacturing

Welcome to the Post-CMM era!

This is part 4 of our blog series about Mapvision Absolute Measurement (if you missed the previous posts, you can find them here: Mapvision Quality Gate Goes Absolute, Verifying the results and Programming Mapvision Quality Gate with CAD referencing.

Testing results of Mapvision Quality Gate Absolute Measurement with real car parts

In my previous blog post, I promised to get back with Absolute Measurement test results from our pilot with real car parts. Here we go then:

In the image below, you can see the CMM correlation results for the door part seen in earlier parts of this blog series, programmed and measured completely with CAD referencing.

In the next image is another set of CMM correlation results, for the subframe part shown in the programming animations of my previous blog post, also with pure CAD referencing:

As we can see, the correlation level we can reach with Mapvision Absolute Measurement is the same or better than with traditional CMM referencing: less than 0.1mm on average.

Now, let's stop for a moment and think about the possibilities this level of flexibility will open up!

You can program and deploy quality inspection in minutes without having to go to the CMM, and start adjusting your production immediately.

Change your parts every week? No problem. Ramp up in a week without CMM? No problem.

30 variants in the same system? Not a problem at all.

This is what Mapvision Absolute Measurement means in practice. You can now probably see why we are so excited about this new technology. We believe this will change in-line quality inspection forever. Welcome to the era of production without a CMM!

Want to hear more? Still no problem, we are currently looking for pilot customers for the technology and now is just the time to get in touch. Just drop our team a message and we will get back to you with more details.
