Perceptron Receives Order for 24 Gauging Systems with AccuSite (Aug. 27, 2018)

Perceptron Receives Order for 24 AutoGauge® In-Line Systems with New AccuSite™ Technology

New Technology and Order for Absolute Accurate Solution

PLYMOUTH, Mich., Aug. 27, — Perceptron, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRCP), a leading global provider of 3D automated metrology solutions and coordinate measuring machines, today announced an order of 24 AutoGauge® systems with AccuSite™ technology for the accurate, in-line measurement of closure panels by a premium global automotive manufacturer.

“These 24 AutoGauge® systems utilize Perceptron’s latest AccuSite™ optical tracking technology and Helix®evo 3D scanning sensor to remove the robot’s limited accuracy from the system performance.  An absolute accurate system eliminates the need to perform expensive and time-consuming data correlation events with other devices, providing accuracy to the operator on the first part for making critical high-speed, data-driven decisions,” said Rick Van Valkenburg, Vice President Global Sales and Marketing for Perceptron.

Perceptron has combined over 30 years of metrology and manufacturing experience to create a truly absolute, correlation-free robotic measurement solution. As the Helix®evo sensor scans various features on the closures, the AccuSite™ tracker instantly locates the sensor and records its exact location and orientation in space. The AccuSite™ option only requires the robot to be a simple mover and eliminates all mechanical drift and temperature influence from the measurement results, without markers or other part preparation.

Van Valkenburg added, “We have received many requests from our customers around the globe for this add-on solution, and are in the process of installing the first six of these systems in Europe. AutoGauge® with AccuSite™ will provide high value part inspection, optimizing the customer’s vehicle launch and continuing to increase ROI throughout the vehicle lifecycle with auditing, troubleshooting, and process monitoring.”
