Automotive Application stories
Through years of collaboration with leading automobile manufacturers such as BMW, Audi, Daimler, etc; ZEISS Optotechnik has acquired expertise in providing 3D measurement solutions for both OEM and supplier channels of automotive sector.

The increasingly competitive market conditions has forced companies to often reduce design to production times. This in turn triggered automotive manufacturers and suppliers to deploy high precision industrial measurement equipment's to identify and eliminate potential causes of defects at various stages of product development. Thereby drastically reducing rejection rates, improving quality of products and increase productivity.

• Clay to Class A
• Prototype development
• Inspection of BIW, sheet metal, plastic components.
• Power Train
• Flush and Gap
• Surface Analysis
• Assembly
• 100 % part inspections
• Virtual Simulations

Statements References
"Our T-SCAN is running since commissioning in continuous use, without ever having failed due to an error. The number of measurement tasks increases permanently, the available time decrease. Then it is an advantage if one can rely on the scanner system."
Norbert Scheitler, Pre-production center
Audi AG

"Using the 3D Digitizing system, we are now able to perform geometry validations of our components effectively and very fast. The layout of the automated system, realized by ZEISS Optotechnik, allows sample checks on two separate measuring areas. Using the COMET Automated sensor is very efficient. Thus, we can also increase the number of pressed parts being analyzed."
Measuring technician, press shop
BMW Regensburg
