A well-known German car manufacturer relies on poka-yoke mechanisms for assembling interior components. The poka-yoke process prevents product defects due to random human errors and ensures that all parts are assembled correctly. However, similar types of component often have different colored seams, which is why error prevention is critical. Previously, these checks were performed manually - experts inspected the seams visually. Micro-Epsilon’s colorSENSOR LT-3-HE color sensors are now used to automate this process and to make it more efficient.
