Here are some of the key applications and uses of Catalyx SmartFactory Machine Vision solutions in the automotive sector: 

  • Defect Detection: such as scratches, dents, misalignments, surface finish, short shot, or incorrect assembly.
  • Bonding: Realtime inspection and verification of correctly applied sealants or structural adhesives.
  • Dimensional Inspection: ensure that components meet precise dimensional specifications.
  • Weld Inspection: verify position, quality, incomplete or inconsistent welding.
  • Colour and Material Verification: Ensure components are the correct colour, finish or material, in interior and exterior trim and upholstery.
  • Label and Barcode Verification: Ensures that labels and barcodes, are correctly applied and readable on all components for traceability and quality control.
  • Ensures accuracy through automated routine processes
  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR): Read and verify alphanumeric characters on parts and labels for identification and traceability.
  • Assembly Verification: Confirm that components have been correctly selected and assembled.
  • Part Sorting and Rejecting: Defective components can be automatically sorted and rejected from the process, ensuring that only high-quality parts are used in the vehicle.
  • Vision guided robotics: with the aid of our vision solutions, we can guide robots for accurate pick and place of components for automated machine tending.
  • Scanning and 3D Inspection: 3D scanning or stereoscopic techniques to verify complex contours and dimensions, in areas where 2D is unable to provide the reliable level of required visual detail for automated inspection or picking.
  • Traceability and Data Collection: capture data of inspection results, creating a record for traceability, quality control and process improvements.

Modernization & Migration

Catalyx has crafted a set of dedicated legacy install base modernization services to evaluate, prioritize, plan, and execute modernization plans designed around a client’s unique legacy landscape. Utilizing these services, we have executed migration projects ranging from single controller and HMI projects to a multi-year modernization plan touching 50+ controllers, 70+ HMIs, and dozens of connected servers and data platforms all under change control using a GAMP 5 risk-based approach. 

We can also utilize different aspects of our process for standalone engagements such as evaluating a legacy install base and presenting risks, or just the creation of a validation master plan for modernization.
