Automotive manufacturers have some of the most demanding requirements in their production and QA processes. The majority of these requirements fall into 4 major categories:
- Throughput – the X-ray system cannot act as a bottleneck in the production cycle
- Floor space – The X-ray system must take up as little space as possible because space on the production floor is valuable
- Reliability – X-ray machine must maintain maximum up-time to continuously run production. Delivery schedules are very important to begin with and delays are not acceptable.
- Automation – production environments require production levels of automation. The X-ray system typically needs to have ADR, and must tie seamlessly into production lines, communicating with other machines to optimize efficiency
