What’s driving automotive traceability today?

An expert guide to the foundation of a rapidly changing Industry

The automotive industry is currently dealing with major changes, including a shift towards globalized platforms and standardized vehicle architectures. Although this helps streamline production, it also means that a single flawed part could have a much broader impact than ever before. Spurred by the high cost of recalls, automotive production currently faces a complex and evolving regulatory landscape.

To minimize the likelihood that faulty parts could be incorporated into finished vehicles, automotive manufacturers are implementing increasingly comprehensive, real-time traceability systems. This white paper discusses the key benefits of traceability for the automotive industry as well as some particular strategies and technological solutions that can maximize the benefits of these systems.

Omron products that solve traceability challenges

The above white papers present several Omron products and describe how each fits into an overarching traceability solution. Following are a few of the technologies featured.

The MicroHAWK ID industrial barcode readers put powerful code reading capabilities into a compact design that can be easily embedded within space-constrained equipment. They are ideal for semiconductor manufacturing, packing equipment, automated laboratory testing or any other situation that requires barcode readers to be included inside machines.

The LVS verifiers and print quality inspection systems help ensure that 1D/2D barcodes, direct part marks (DPMs) and printed labels are readable and properly formed. Without a solid verification system, unreadable symbols and labels containing errors could be distributed throughout the production line or even into the market, causing valuable information to be lost.

The NX/NJ series controllers are designed to directly transfer traceability information to a SQL database without hampering machine control performance with embedded SQL connectivity. By making secure data transfer easily available at the machine level, these controllers help manufacturers reap the benefits of valuable data while maintaining the desired production cycle time.
