TASK

Automated seat testing with robots

The quality testing of automobile seats in series production vehicles follows an extensive procedure that is too complex to be performed manually. Quality assurance by hand and eye would be excessively time-consuming and lacks precision with problems regarding documentation, process reliability and the like. These are a few of the reasons that robots now predominate in this area.

Automobile manufacturers leave nothing to chance when it comes to vehicle seats because they know this particular part determines not only the comfort of the passengers but also their safety. The seat is also the connection between driver and vehicle and must satisfy a number of criteria.

Automotive manufacturers around the world have now developed their own sequence of tests to ensure the quality of vehicle seats. Meanwhile, robot solutions have proven their worth in various applications.
