Ensure clutch plates are manufactured to be flat to a certain specification on the production line.
A DS1000 displacement was installed and allowed the manufacturer to inspect each clutch plate as it is being made. Once scanned, the flatness was checked to ensure the manufacturer is making parts to the correct specification. The scanning and inspection was able to keep up with the speed of the production line.
The manufacturer was able to produce and inspect each clutch plate without the inspection being a bottleneck. They were able to lower costs by optimizing this part of their manufacturing process.
