ZEISS boasts decades of experience in optical 3D and 2D measuring technology, as well as in robot guidance. With several hundred robotic installations around the globe, ZEISS 3D in-line sensors are among the most widely used in car body construction. ZEISS plans and creates entire in-line measuring systems in accordance with customer requirements.
ZEISS ABIS is used for automated optical in-line surface inspections of pressed metal and car body components as well as the entire car body in sync with the production cycle. This ensures an objective, highly efficient and reproducible quality assurance process for each part a company produces.
The new self-propelled system navigates completely autonomous to the measuring system. The appropriate interfaces then start the measuring programs. Corresponding to the new CARFIT lite there is a new simple and fast connection technology available which helps you to set up clamping devices easily and efficienctly.
The data captured by the sensors forms closed ,networked quality control loops in ZEISS PiWeb and helps with the identification of future trends in production. With ZEISS PiWeb you visualize, store, analyze, exchange and network measurement data anywhere, even at different global sites.
This sensor takes the capture of gap and flush values one step further: in addition to coated and metal surfaces, it is now possible to obtain these values on non-cooperative and transparent surfaces.
ZEISS AIMax twin is used to capture the geometric dimensions of the gap and the flush. The doubled headed sensor performs inspections along the entire production chain: from metal surfaces in car body construction and coatings and extending all the way to the final assembly of painted surfaces.
is used in automated in-line gap and flush inspection and here inspects the optical gap on metal and painted surfaces.

ZEISS 3D sensors combine 2D contour measurement with a 3D measurement using the multiple line triangulation principle. This enables the high precision, high-speed inspection of complex geometric characteristics (features) in metal working and in car body construction.
The networked system comprises a 3D sensor, cameras and reference points. The highly precise AIMax cloud performs in-line measurements of features, such as bolts, holes and edges, in a fraction of a second. Markers on the sensor are used to monitor and calculate the position. This ensures that you have reliable and informative measurement and inspection data with the
desired level of precision beginning with the very first part.
Correlation and comparison measurements in the measuring lab are kept to a minimum.
Our 2D and 3D image processing systems support position and location recognition wherever processes demand high precision in part handling and machining, which cannot be achieved through reproducible part fixturing and feeding systems. To enable this, information is delivered to the robot controls, for example, to enable targeted removal, feeding and additional processing steps.
