COBA Automotive introduced its first in-line laser measurement machines more than six years ago, and since then they have become an integral part of our production operation.
Having this technology available for use in manufacturing means that extruded plastic profiles can be measured in real time, and with SPC (Statistical Process Control). And because laser machines provide a non-contact method of measuring the accuracy of parts, quality levels are maximised without affecting speed of production. Thousands of measurements are performed each hour on a running production line, which is something a manual process could never match.
We pride ourselves on the quality of what we make, and accurate measurement is vital to providing consistent product to our clients.
Poka-yoke is a Japanese term that means “inadvertent error prevention”, and we employ this via the 100% process control of our production lines to prevent non-conformances. By connecting these systems to the network, data can be stored indefinitely, for customer reporting, as well as assisting with the design and development on new products.
