Vehicle Emblem

Some of the most frustrating hassles in final vehicle assembly are emblems being placed improperly or missing altogether. Sipotek offers a vision system to inspect emblems on several different vehicle models with various colours. By using multiple high resolution cameras and our customized machine vision software we achieve the highest quality of inspection.

Problem: The solution we provide inspects for the presence/absence, alignment and colour of various vehicle emblems in various locations.

Solution: We developed and installed a multiple machine camera vision system. Integration with the plant computer network is needed in order to communicate which car is next in the assembly line. Coupled with our powerful software we are able to perform inspections for upwards of 200 different vehicles with only one system.

After inspection the system stores all the images and upon detection of a defective vehicle the system identifies which emblem is defective and it stores the defect data (date/time, location, emblem type, etc) giving a fail result. The resulting SPC reports are extremely effective in reducing the number of similar defects in the future thus saving time and money.

Assembly Inspection: Emblem is an excellent choice for any vehicle OEM.

Engine Assembly

The most challenging task of engine powertrain suppliers is to ensure that engines are fully validated without errors before shipping. Sipotek offers a vision system with multiple high resolution cameras to inspect numerous points on an engine assembly. Within minutes this system can be set up and fine tuned. This is traditionally a hassle to many engineers who find it hard to bear with the process variables but with our user friendly GUI the system can be up and running in no time. By providing 100% inspection we ensure no engine leaves without being automatically, quickly and thoroughly inspected.

Problem: Our client (a tier one manufacturer in the automotive industry) required a system to verify several features on their engine assembly. Not only did they need an intricate system but also a very fast system to meet cycle time demands.

Solution: We designed and built a 32 camera system to inspect over 100 points on a fully assembled engine checking for feature presence/absence, position, orientation, full engagement and colour correctness. We integrate with existing assembly lines using several high resolution cameras and custom lighting. The cameras are instantly triggered when an engine arrives at the inspection station. It reads the VIN (vehicle identity number) barcode that contains the engine model and its combination type. The cameras perform their inspection tasks independently according to the VIN information. Our system archives all the vision data with a time and date stamp along with a reference number matching the vehicle being inspected. This gives manufacturers full traceability by providing access to archived data and the ability to modify the system based on that data.

Assembly Inspection: Engine Assembly is the perfect choice for any automotive assembly application.
