To achieve the quality that customers demand, comply with regulations, reduce risk, and reduce liability exposure, manufacturers increasingly rely on machine vision and ID solutions from Cognex.
Quality: Many vision applications in the automotive industry are for quality inspections because everyone is driving towards a zero tolerance for defects.
Safety critical parts: There is no room for error in safety-critical automotive components because if a part is defective or missing a crash could occur and someone could be injured or killed. Because most consumers expect air bags and anti-lock braking systems to be standard on vehicles today, automotive manufacturers must double and triple check all safety-critical components to ensure quality and decrease warranty costs and recall liability.
Product traceability and lot control: The primary goal of many vision and auto ID systems is to increase productivity and process yield.
