Advances in Manufacturing II (MANUFACTURING 2019)


The article presents an electronic guide to the nonconformity of parts produced in an enterprise in the automotive industry. In visual inspection, it is very important to be familiar with errors that can potentially be detected at a given control position and clearly define the control criteria. In the automotive industry, in which products must conform to very high requirements, not only in terms of safety of use, but also appearance, repeatability and reproducibility of this product feature is extremely important. What appears to be helpful then is nonconformities catalogues, which contain pictures of possible defects and their descriptions. The innovatory approach of the guide consists in taking into account the needs of deaf and hearing-impaired people working in the quality control department and using Orbitvu 3D to take pictures of nonconformities.
