Passing the Eye Test: Innovative Lighting Solution Resolves Sticky Situation

Challenge: Our company faced a quality issue originating during our sub-assembly of headliners for a major customer, a Fortune 100 automotive OEM. Strands of the glue used to affix wiring harnesses and other parts to headliners' C-surfaces were ending up on their A-surfaces as well and were not detected in the QA process. The problem was discovered after finished headliners were installed on vehicles. We needed to make detection easier and meet production cycle times and quality standards.

Solution: We invested in a customized lighting system with the fluorescence and brightness to quickly identify glue within defined cycle times.The installation occurred over one weekend, when the facility was closed to avoid disruption to operations.

Results: In the four years since the system was installed, no quality issues related to glue on the A-surfaces have been reported. The system was seamlessly integrated into our sub-assembly process without increasing cycle time.
