During November 2021, a new MESACON laser multi-spot measuring system for quality control of material thickness became operational at a location just outside Leipzig, Germany. The joint venture between SCHULER and PORSCHE sets new standards in the field of smart component tracking.

Industry 4.0 – that is the philosophy in the new state-of-the-art Press Shop with upstream blanking line. Particular attention being paid to seamless quality assurance from coil to finished component. During runtime, the material thickness measured, together with other quality characteristics, such as the oil layer, surface roughness and material properties. These are all monitored and visualized on large dashboards, along with the line data, using a comprehensive track and trace solution from SCHULER.

The material thickness is determined during production using confocal chromatic laser distance measurement in three measuring tracks.
