Zeiss Industrial Metrology has opened a new facility in Wixom, MI, dedicated to the latest developments for the process chain in car body metrology and automated inspection.

"This center helps us illustrate how to make production more efficient in line, in the measuring room, and in-between. This means production and quality can find solutions to problems anytime, from anywhere in the manufacturing facility. ZEISS also showcases solutions for robotic inspection, quality and process data mining, plus measurement planning and offline programming," states Bob Wasilesky, key account manager for automated inspection at Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, LLC.

Customers can see in action and learn about networking inline, atline and offline. ZEISS PiWeb software connects each station, combining measurement data from multiple systems into graphical part stories, SPC charts, quality documents and dashboards. ZEISS engineers at the new facility are available to show the benefits of these technologies, provide consulting, custom programming and specialized training.
