Machine Vision Correlation to Master Gauges 872281
Machine vision technology is a tool being utilized in the new GMT-400 pickup truck Body Shops for process monitoring and control. These real-time Machine Vision Dimensional Gauging systems monitor 100% of the production's critical build features such as door and window openings, hinge locations, and fender mounting brackets, Traditional gauges typically can provide data on only a small sample of production −1% or less.
Correlating the machine vision systems to master gauges allows accurate data to be collected on every job as it is being built. This complete dimensional control data provides information for process monitoring as well as a means to detect tooling adjustment requirements and the ability to detect build problems, even if they occur intermittently.
Several methods of performing this correlation have been investigated, with the goal being to define a correlation procedure that works well in the plant environment.
