Perceptron® Expands Frame Measurement Success

Longstanding Tier 1 Customer Selects Dimensional Gauging Solutions for European Plants

PLYMOUTH, Mich., March 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perceptron, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRCP), a leading global provider of 3D automated metrology solutions and coordinate measuring machines, announced that a longstanding North American Tier 1 customer placed orders for Helix® dimensional gauging solutions in several European facilities.
“Perceptron has successfully installed over sixty measurement systems for this particular Tier 1 customer in North America and we are excited to leverage this success and expand into their European facilities,” commented Rick Van Valkenburg, Perceptron Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. Frames and cradles are a critical part of the vehicle and undergo an intricate assembly process before they are delivered to the OEM. Perceptron solutions provide benefits to both the supplier and the OEM including reduced scrap and rework costs for the supplier and quality assurance for the OEM. Van Valkenburg added, “We continue to see more and more OEMs requiring 100 percent measurement from their high-value part suppliers. The confidence Perceptron has established at the OEM level is transcending down the supply chain.” The latest project involves a flexible configuration with two robot-mounted Helix sensors providing real-time process information for more than 100 geometry features in addition to 170 studs. All measurements are taken and reported in less than eight minutes. Perceptron’s stud scanning capability, measurement speed, and Helix technology made Perceptron the obvious choice. The station is currently being designed, with installation scheduled for summer of 2017.
