In most cases, LGWorksRT is used on a moving assembly line to make measurements on vehicles as they move through the inspection station. Routines can be run by one or two operators working simultaneously using multiple DSP sensors. The measurement results are displayed on a large screen mounted over the line and out-of-spec conditions are color-coded for easy identification.
A routine can be launched in LGWorksRT by entering a trace that is specifically associated with the routine. The trace can be a VIN or a sequence number or any identifier of the part or assembly being inspected. In assembly plants, the VIN or sequence number is usually on a barcode label attached to the part. Using the optional barcode reader on the sensor to read the barcode and associating a precise trace to a specific routine, that routine will automatically open in LGWorksRT in preparation for measuring.
Routines can be run by one operator or by two operators working simultaneously using the handheld DSP sensors.
A DSP sensor must be directly connected to the computer via a USB cable or through a wireless ZigBee link to run a routine with LGWorksRT.
This option works in conjunction with LGWorksRT. The gap and flush, or “fit”, data is recorded and entered into the plant’s database or quality management system. Measurement results from the Fit-Gate station can also be gathered and filtered and those results displayed on a separate monitor or LCD downstream where operators can adjust the ‘fit’ of any out of spec measurement.
