Bearing shell detection in automotive manufacturing

The presence of the bearing shells is checked automatically for all bearing caps before the assembly of the engines at the Swedish automotive manufacturer, Volvo. The bearing caps are kept in the light band of an optical micrometer by robots. As the bearing shells and the bearing caps cover a part of the light band, a reliable OK/NOK inspection can be performed.
