URQC-200 installed and operational at Audi Brussels

Audi Brussels has commissioned a robot cell for ultrasonic quality control, developed by FRS Robotics in Leuven, Belgium. FRS Robotics successfully integrated a standard cobot into a robot cell for automated ultrasonic inspection, hereby extending the working range to allow all car parts to be inspected in one go without intermediate part repositioning. By combining force control and feedback of the ultrasonic signal, FRS Robotics introduces a reliable and productive non-destructive quality control procedure. The FRS Robotics cell enables Audi Brussels to further increase production quality, speed up quality control, and reduce material scrap. The robot cell is fully operational and replaces today’s manual inspections, which are complex, time consuming and error prone. In the fenceless cell, our operators intuitively collaborate with the robot, which eliminates any physical strain. Audi Brussels currently uses the FRS Robotics cell to inspect the fold glue joints on Audi e-tron 516 door, hood, trunk lid and other car body parts.
