DOT Code Reader
Codes on car tires.
Thanks to the strong-growing 3D vision, we can detect the 3rd dimension of objects. This way we can calculate their volumes, measure their heights and also perceive variations in their relief. This can be done in different ways, but we use laser triangulation.
This requires movement between the camera and the object. This technique has been incorporated into the DOT reading application used in the automotive sector. DOT stands for 'Department Of Transportation'.
Production dates are applied to car tyres. During assembly, 4 or 5 tires with a recent production date are provided. The VistaLink solution reads and verifies this code, with a maximum of 1 misread code per 8 hours shift. The DOT-reading application we developed is high-end. In other words, the reading quality is exceptionally high, which makes this application very important for the automotive industry.
Our company implemented a 100% inspection system in collaboration with VistaLink to detect and prevent defects at customer level and to meet their quality standards. The system was able to check parts quality with more than 15 quality criteria on a total production of 275 Million units per year. Despite the complexity of the project itself, the system was successfully implemented in more than 20 manufacturing lines and the quality delivered to our customers increased enormously. It helped us to prevent defects and to improve our process.
A relationship of trust based on the perfect mastery and performance of the installed equipment, competent contacts, available and sensitive to the optimization of existing solutions
With the development of our white stock system, VistaLink delivered a state-of-the-art solution 15 years ago to prevent product mixup. Since then VistaLink is our partner for our most challenging vision projects.
When nobody else solves my vision needs, I turn to VistaLink for help. And they never let me down.
