Windscreen boss position on glass

Windscreen boss position on glass

Windscreen boss position on glass

The Challenge:

To ensure the position of a boss on a windscreen is positioned correctly. The system needs to detect the pitch and yaw of the boss which is mounted directly on the windscreen. The boss is the mounting point for the rear view mirror and in car microphone, so its critical that it is positioned correctly.  A tolerance of 0.2mm was needed for its position with an angular tolerance of +/- 2 degrees.

Our Solution:

The positional data of each boss was relayed to the PLC and screenshot of the results was displayed on the screen next to the production line. The accuracy required was achieved with the machine vision inspection system and it saved a lot of time by eliminating the need for manual / operator inspection. The data obtained from each inspection was also tagged to the job to ensure traceability.
