General Motors Company recognizes state-of-the-art measurement technology on the new Corvette program

PLYMOUTH, MI - Perceptron, Inc., a leading global provider of real time, non-contact measurement and inspection solutions, announced that Perceptron has been recognized by the General Motors Company for providing state-of-the-art measurement technology on the new Corvette program.

Jeffrey M. Armstrong, Perceptron's President and CEO, said, "We are extremely proud that General Motors (GM) selected Perceptron for this landmark endeavor. We have enjoyed a strong relationship supporting GM for many years, and it is gratifying that our 3D industrial measurement systems were specifically identified by GM as being one of four new, critical technologies that enabled GM to produce the 'strongest and most precisely built Corvette in its six-decade history.' Perceptron partnered with GM to design and implement a world-class measurement system, across the manufacturing process, to monitor 100% of production in real time. This allows GM to significantly reduce allowable tolerances by tightly managing and controlling build variation issues that might arise."

The Perceptron systems contain a mix of stationary and robot-mounted laser-triangulation sensors that monitor critical build features and collect hundreds of dimensional measurements on every single vehicle.
