PLYMOUTH, MI—Ford Motor Co. has chosen Perceptron Inc. to provide in-line process improvement systems for two new 2003-2004 vehicle programs at four plants. Installation of the new systems was scheduled to be complete in September.

Perceptron’s AutoGuide robot guidance systems will enable automated roof loading and seam-sealing processes. A combination of Perceptron’s fixed and flexible AutoGauge dimensional measurement systems will be used to provide Ford the manufacturing measurement flexibility it requires, while maintaining high line rates.

The Dearborn Truck Plant will use the new AutoGauge systems and the AutoGuide systems for the new F-150 truck. Multiple AutoGauge systems have been installed at plants in Norfolk, VA, and Kansas City, MO, where the new F-150 is produced. In addition, the 2003 model Freestar body shop in Oakville, Ontario, received eight new Perceptron AutoGauge systems.
