Perceptron Industrial Metrology Body Shop Solution

Perceptron Industrial Metrology solution for the automotive body shop enables you to contain, correct, verify, and control manufacturing quality immediately — on every part — at full production speed without removing the part from your manufacturing process.

High-volume, complex manufacturing processes can change quickly and unexpectedly. By containing problems when they occur, and accumulating data on every part, you can proactively detect and monitor production trends before they hit the crisis stage or cause downtime.

Our solutions can be installed inline, atline or offline to meet your measurement requirements.

Car Position Measurement


Robots in the production can only complete their task accurately with a reliable detection of the car body position in the cell.

The ISRA VISION Car Position Measurement (CAPMES) system is the industry standard on the market: it is easy to set up and ensures reliable, precise 3D recognition of the body position and orientation in stop & go operation or line tracking in the cell based on a combination of multiple cameras directed at certain features of the car body (e.g. holes, edges, corners) from various directions.

The 3D position of the body detected by the system is used to provide the off-set data to guide robots accurately in a downstream processing step. As a result, car body tolerances and mechanical position deviations can be compensated perfectly and a wide range of car body types can be accommodated on a single line.


Fast and precise measurement of car body position for accurate robot guidance

Full flexibility for handling multiple car types in single production line

Reduced cycle time compared to mechanical fitting systems

Bead & Seam Inspection

RTVision 3d bead inspection on car body

When it comes to safety, the structural bonding of the car body is crucial. 

Quiss bead inspection systems reliably detect interruptions, faulty geometry, or position deviations -– directly inline or offline, depending on the application and requirements. The systems are perfectly coordinated and integrated into your line with optimized cycle times. The result is 100% production quality. Rework and scrap can be significantly reduced. 

Automated bead repair is available for all RTVision sensors. During application, the bead is accurately measured, and any gaps are reported to the application or robot control system. In a second pass, these gaps are closed -– accurately, without overlap and unwanted extra application.

Best Fit Joining Processes

To achieve perfect results in complex manufacturing processes, robots and components must be optimally aligned. At the same time, process continuity is essential, even in difficult environments and conditions, with various car types in the same line. 

The SHAPEMATCH3D sensor system determines the position and orientation of surfaces of any shape. The robot path is adjusted according to the detected deviations. Mechanical position deviations can be perfectly compensated, allowing a wide range of car types to be produced on a single line. 

Through its versatile software functions, the cost-effective automation solution can be integrated into existing systems with little effort, regardless of the robot manufacturer and model.
