One of the largest automotive bolt manufacturers in India recently added a “Vision Lab 3D” fastener gauging system from General Inspection, LLC to streamline their first part inspection process.

“Vision Lab” uses General Inspection's patented 3D gauging technology to provide complete part dimensional layouts in less than 5s. The machine can perform 360° dimensional inspection with detailed data reporting, plus options to provide 360° visual defect detection, end view inspection, and measure recess depth and recess concentricity.

 The bolt manufacturer’s goal was to reduce inspection time, improve quality, and cut down on calibration costs by replacing multiple manual gauges, such as micrometers, calipers, and optical comparators, which are inherently subject to human error. “Vision Lab” completes first-piece inspections in a fraction of the time allowing employees to concentrate on production tasks instead of manually measuring parts.

 Production has significantly increased; errors have been eliminated and the company is able to measure much more frequently. All dimensions: including lengths, diameters, radii, angles, and GD+T features are measured and displayed with a pass/fail indication. Custom data reports are created and saved as CSV or Excel files, but in this case the customer is utilising the “My Sequel” built in server to connect directly to their SPC program. This saves time and money plus drastically improves quality by accurately measuring parts within two microns. Part feature tolerances are assigned with the appropriate part number and stored in memory for quick recall.
