Automotive

The automotive industry is one of the most important industrial sectors in the world

A typical aspect of automobile production is the increased automation.
The final assembly takes place in a production line in which the vehicle
passes through several stations before rolling off the assembly line
automatically. With such automated processes, any machine damage
often results in a stillstand of the entire assembly line.
Fail-safe operation and reliability of the production equipment are
therefore top priorities.

PRUFTECHNIK's measurement instruments are used in
key areas of the automotive industry:

  • Press shop
  • Paint shop
  • Lifting and conveyor technology
  • Engine test benches
  • Machining centers with machine tools


Production-critical assets are equipped with stationary online systems
and monitored around the clock. Portable data collectors are usually suitable
for  auxiliary equipment. Laser optical systems are state-of-the-art for virtually
all measurement tasks and corrective actions, such as

  • shaft alignment of rotating machinery (motor - pump, motor - fan) 
  • flatness and straightness measurement of foundations, presses and transfer lines.
