Ensuring superb quality in the production line

Automotive OEMs and Tier1s constantly demand higher quality standards. Part recall costs grow exponentially along the lifecycle of the lamp, which has raised Tier1s’ interest in an automated testing procedure able to check correct part behavior without jeopardizing cycle time. OEMs can use it to ensure quality and reduce assembly times and costs. In automotive lamp manufacturing lines, the most common verifications to perform include: Dimensions, Electrical Parameters, Leakage and Lighting Operations.
