ATR-Strothmann Installs
Machine-Vision System at Magna

Tuesday, April 27, 2004
 
A new Canadian facility owned by Magna International has installed an Inspection.IQ machine-vision system from ATR-Strothmann, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. The new facility manufactures truck frames and chassis. Inspection.IQ verifies the presence of more than 100 studs and holes on each truck frame, ensuring that only defect-free components leave the plant. The noncontact system is located at its own station at the end of an automated welding line, employing more than 50 machine vision cameras and 80 light sources. It is expandable, with the ability to add cameras and lights, and logs each truck-frame inspection into a database to create an inspection history.
