Final assembly GlassMaster Solution
Urethane is used to assemble glass onto the vehicle frame, which improves structural rigidity and prevents possible water leakage. However, glass shape variation of ±4 mm is not uncommon. This variation can lead to the dispensing robot breaking the glass or incorrect bead size, volume and/or location.
GlassMaster ensures the proper sealant volume is dispensed at correct location in real-time with no penalty to the cycle time. GlassMaster uses 4 lasers (2 in front and 2 in back) to inspect bead size and location and detects any nozzle skips or “neck-downs” on-the-fly. Z-tracking compensates for part variation by enabling the robot to adjust nozzle height in real-time during dispensing. GlassMaster is not affected by part color or ambient lighting changes, providing robust operation even in “black-on-black” situations.
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.
