The Seat Martorell factory recently won the first prize in the INNOVATION category of the 2021 production awards given by the VW global consortium, presenting as an innovative project the automatic cell for repairing painting defects carried out by Procon Systems last year.

The VW consortium organises a competition among its factories around the world and its various brands (Seat, Audi, Volkswagen, Bentley, Porsche, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Skoda, Man, Scania). This year, 170 participants submitted projects in the various production areas.

Once again Procon Systems has been the strategic partner to carry out this project, with the collaboration of Eines as experts in vision systems.

The project included the installation of a two-station robotic line with 2 robots each. The first station is responsible for the detection, classification and wet sanding of the defect. The second station performs the polishing and cleaning of the defect.

By using a system of virtual string tracing on the 3D of the car body developed by Procon Systems/Eines, the installation is able to differentiate the parts of the surface where the defect is placed and act on a specific way for each type to avoid damage to the car body.

We appreciate the fact that Seat and its team have made us part of this success. Together we have been overcoming the different challenges that the project has brought us during the last year.
