Pilot Plan Metrology

In the pilot plant, vehicle assembly is verified to avoid quality problems during series production of a new car type. In particular for sheet metal parts, the shape of the mating surfaces and the position of fixation points are key parameters to obtain an optimum fit. Ideally, pre-production geometry verification is performed by digitizing physical sheet metal and plastic body parts and virtually assembling vehicle bodies in software. 3D laser scanning technology, point cloud processing and virtual assembly reduce the number of physical evaluation prototypes and eliminates the need for costly specialized verification tooling.
