Quality control in the automotive industry

Metrology ensures quality assurance in the automotive industry

The requirements of automotive manufacturing are constantly increasing. Products are becoming more complex and complicated, as well as the manufacturing process. Therefore, the establishment of a quality management system is not only a useful step, but a mandatory standard in the automotive industry. In order for a manufacturer to differentiate themselves from the competition, it is necessary to optimize the quality control (QC) and management in the automobile industry. ZEISS is a partner of the VDA and thus guarantees up-to-date specialist knowledge and expertise. In the process of quality assurance in the automotive industry, ZEISS is your supplier for measurement tools across all areas of manufacturing. This ensures compliance with VDA standards across the whole production process.

Metrology in automotive product development

Measurement data from ZEISS already provides meaningful information in terms of material properties and component behavior during automotive product development. The data results generated by the measurements can already influence prototype development and construction methods. This is achieved primarily through innovative measurement methods and an ideal measuring room.

To be able to assess measurement results, it is important to know how they were produced. Many factors, such as the temperature in the measuring room or the inspection plan, can influence results in coordinate measuring technology. ZEISS offers training courses - such as AUKOM Management Training - to precisely make these factors and processes tangible for your company. This way, you can meet all the requirements of the automotive industry. This is the perfect prerequisite for optimal car quality control as well as compliance with all standards recommended by the VDA.

Quality assurance in production and final inspection in the automotive industry

As a part of quality control in the automotive industry, an engineer is performing a final inspection.

In subsequent production, ZEISS measuring systems completely record the geometry of tools, cast material, plastic and sheet metal parts to ensure consistent product quality. Inspections can be performed using inline, atline and offline quality control methods in the automotive industry. Coordinate measuring machines such as ZEISS MICURA can even be used to precisely measure the smallest auto parts and workpieces.

Metrology systems are also used to ensure quality management in the final inspection of the automotive industry.
