Custom Designed Automated Vision Inspection System for the Automotive Manufacturing Industry

An automotive Tier 1 manufacturing client approached MJ Engineering to design and install a custom automated vision based part inspection system. The specific need was to verify that each model is assembled in the correct orientation. The inspection system allows the operator to place a part for inspection upon completing the previous task. The inspection system has a color touch screen operator interface panel for selecting the model to be run and to display pass fail status of the inspection

The vision system is programmed to look for specific characteristics. The system verifies these characteristics are present where they belong and also verify none are present where they don’t. By doing so it is capable of providing 100% verification of the specified characteristics. Each passing part is automatically marked with a quick dry ink for quality tracking purposes.

The customer had been using manual inspection of each part which was very time consuming and also made it difficult to maintain the zero error requirements their customer requires.

 Vision based automated inspection system

Product Description

This automated vision based inspection station verifies the correct assembly of every part manufactured. 

Capabilities Applied/Processes Cell Design
  • Conception of cell that meets unique production requirements. 
  • Create SolidWorks© 3D models of cell concept
  • Vision and lighting applicaiton concept and tesing


Operator and Maintenance Training


Utilizes Teledyne Dalsa BOA color vision

Portable Cell

Provides visual and audible feedback on each part inspected.

Capable of 30+ individual inspections per part.

Multiple part types can be programmed and inspected.


By utilizing a color vision system and the correct lighting for the application it is able to compensate for color and finish variances that are not critical to the part quality test.

Multiple parts can be programmed and accessed directly by the integrated operator HMI.

Easily modified to meet new product requirements.
