(Battenberg: Marburg, Germany) -- Manufacturing products of consistently high quality at every production site throughout the world is an ideal to which all OEMs aspire, but in practice, there tends to be major regional differences in quality.
Using a mobile robotic measuring module, it is now possible to trace the source of errors more quickly and implement global quality strategies. This breakthrough comes from Marburg, Germany-based robotic measuring specialist, Battenberg, in response to persistent requests from the automotive industry for viable solutions to conduct global quality testing under consistent conditions. Car manufacturers want to be able to test their quality specifications anywhere in the world using reliable measuring systems without having to depend on the dubious testing equipment found in many emerging economies.
With the Rob6D, Battenberg offers a mobile robotic measuring module that can conduct these measurements to exactly the same degree of precision anywhere in the world, whether in Wolfsburg, Detroit, or Timbuktu. The Rob6D is designed for the flexible measurement of components formed from sheet metal or plastic that require precision of up to 100 µm. Typical applications include measuring automotive body parts such as doors, hoods, and wings through to center consoles and cockpits. The Rob6D is also ideal for testing seats. It fits into a standard container, is simple to transport, and quick to set up and operate on site.
