In 2007, Skoda (Volkswagen Group) automotive constructor built two new plants in India and Russia.
Skoda was looking for flexible, automated and efficient solutions for use in measurement applications. The Kreon scanners were chosen to control stamping parts. The scanners are either mounted on 7-axis measuring arms to be handled by operators or they follow programmed measurements in Metrolog software.
This process enabled Skoda to set up a simple and scalable scanning solution due to measurement through laser scanning. Programs are written by system administrators and executed by operators on the production line.
Kreon laser scanners have been chosen by Harley Davidson to control the quality of metal frames, tubes, castings, formed parts, tooling, dies, etc. related to the manufacturing of their famous motorcycles.
Some parts are scanned and compared to existing CAD models, while some others are digitized to create CAD models from the scanned point clouds.
PSA (Peugeot-Citroën) selected the Kreon scanners to equip six production sites in France.
For reverse engineering applications, Kreon Zephyr scanners guarantee easy digitization of physical parts and modification of prototypes. Moreover, their use during the demanding inspection process makes it possible to monitor deviations between the produced engine parts and their nominal CAD data.
