Ann Arbor, Michigan, June 18, 2012 — Coherix®, a leader in advanced Robust3D Measurement and Inspection solutions for manufacturing is proud to announce the release of Tru3D, its newest vision based product for assembly verification. Tru3D utilizes a rich set of 3-dimensional (3-D) profile data to create vision solutions that are more robust, simpler to use, and lower cost to own when compared to traditional methods of human inspection, mechanical probes and sweeps, and 2-dimensional vision inspection systems.
“With Tru3D, we are focused on providing zero error assembly verification solutions for complex assemblies such as powertrain transmissions, where component failures in the field result in vehicle breakdowns”, said Doug Davidson, Chief Engineer for Tru3D. “Tru3D relies on redundant 3D data to create a very repeatable 3D model of the part that is used in the assembly verification solution. Tru3D has a natural home in powertrain assembly due to its ability to measure accurately regardless of a parts surface finish, orientation or ambient lighting conditions, producing results for our customers that are significantly more reliable than traditional methods.”
Coherix® has recently received orders for transmission snap ring and piston pin circlip assembly verification systems at two large automotive OEM’s. Coherix® anticipates rapid adoption of this technology as automotive OEM’s and suppliers begin to understand the benefits of assembly verification using 3D data.
Coherix® is a privately held, global supplier of high-speed, high-definition 3D visualization and inspection solutions designed to improve the management of manufacturing processes. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, the company has technical centers in Europe and the Asia Pacific region. Coherix® products are being utilized around the world at companies such as Intel, Amkor, Borg Warner, Ford, Honda, MAG, Chrysler, General Motors, Micron, Infineon, John Deere, Volvo Technology Transfer and TRW among others.
