The challenge was to ensure that all sheet metal parts met the required tolerances before they left the factory. The traditional measurement room approach was not providing the necessary process reliability. The need was for a solution that could inspect 100% of the parts quickly and accurately, ensuring that only quality parts were delivered to the OEMs.
Eleven Dynamics AG stepped in with a solution. They presented a Proof of Concept (POC) of a digital twin of a measurement cell at Magna Steyr. This digital twin, powered by Nexos 4.0 software, was capable of simulating and managing automated measurement processes.
The solution was flexible and adaptable, designed to meet Magna Steyr's specific needs. It could support any robot, sensor, and cell configuration, making it a perfect fit for the diverse range of sheet metal parts that Magna Steyr produced.
The results were immediate and impressive. All parts could be checked within the digital twin in just a few minutes, ensuring 100% control. The solution improved process reliability, increased throughput, and provided high-quality measurement data.
The POC demonstrated the added value of the solution in real-time, convincing Magna Steyr of its effectiveness. The solution integrated seamlessly with existing systems at Magna Steyr, including KUKA robots, POLYWORKS software, and the LEICA AS1 scanner.
The successful implementation of the POC at Magna Steyr is a testament to the power of Eleven Dynamics' solutions. By leveraging advanced software like Nexos 4.0 and state-of-the-art digital twin technology, Eleven Dynamics is helping companies like Magna Steyr step into the future of sheet metal processing.
