The Booming Popularity of Electric Vehicles and What It Means for Automotive Part Manufacturers

Electric vehicles (EVs) are taking the automotive industry by storm, with their market share projected to rise from 4% in 2020 to a staggering 18% in 2023, according to the International Energy Agency.

At Willrich Precision Instrument, we understand the impact this trend has on automotive part manufacturers and the need for precise and efficient metrology solutions.

As the demand for EVs grows, traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) part manufacturers must adapt to this new landscape. The transition to EVs brings new challenges to the table, including the development and production of new parts. However, one thing remains constant – the need for impeccable part quality and adherence to strict tolerances.

Manufacturers must be equipped to handle these challenges head-on. Measuring reflective materials like aluminum, steel, or composites used in EV parts can be tricky.

Inspection technologies that rely on white or blue light sensitivity require surface preparation, which adds an extra step to the manufacturing process. This is where our precision metrology instruments come in, ensuring accurate measurements without compromising efficiency.

Another obstacle faced by EV part manufacturers is the time-consuming nature of traditional inspection methods. Coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), though reliable, often require programming, setup, and back-and-forth with the production line.

These extra steps can slow down the inspection process, hindering production throughput. 

Our innovative solutions enable inspections to be performed directly on the shop floor, reducing time spent on programming and allowing for faster and more efficient inspections.

Furthermore, large and complex parts like the battery tray pose a unique challenge due to their size, weight, and harsh production environments. These factors can make accurate measurements difficult. However, our precision instruments are designed to handle such challenges with ease, ensuring accuracy without compromising on practicality.

At Willrich Precision, we prioritize providing our clients with the most advanced metrology solutions to meet their specific needs. Our instruments offer accuracy, efficiency, and ease of use on the shop floor, allowing EV part manufacturers to maintain impeccable quality control while increasing production throughput.

Dealing with the disruptive shift from ICE to EVs may seem daunting, but with the right metrology partner by your side, you can embrace the booming popularity of electric vehicles and position yourself as a leader in this transformative industry.

Automate in 2024 | Boost ROI + Alleviate Bottlenecks

Are bottlenecks causing delays in your QC process?

By automating your QC process, you can alleviate bottlenecks and improve efficiency. At Willrich Precision Instrument, a dedicated metrology house with over 51 years of experience, we understand the importance of automation in streamlining your QC process.

Why should you automate your QC process?

Manual gauging is labor-intensive and can significantly slow down production. Additionally, being understaffed or relying on outdated processes and slow equipment like a CMM can further hinder your operations.

Automating manual gauging can help reduce or even eliminate bottlenecks in manufacturing processes. In-process manual gauging can slow down machine cycles and result in idle spindle time, affecting machine output. Automated gauging systems can streamline this process and ensure accurate measurements. In the case of incoming inspection, an automated gauging system can help avoid delays and bottlenecks caused by limited resources and the need for inspection of outsourced parts.

Is automation worth the investment?

It is definitely worth the investment, as it offers numerous benefits that can be quantified with a return on investment (ROI) calculation.

By automating manual gauging processes in manufacturing, companies can experience reduced labor costs, decreased risk, higher levels of quality, and increased capacity. A practical example demonstrates how automation can lead to significant cost savings. For instance, if a medical device manufacturer employs two full-time QC inspectors to measure small parts manually, it costs them $3,360 per week in labor. However, by implementing automation technology, the labor cost for part measurement can be reduced by at least 80%, resulting in savings of $2,688 per week.

With the estimated implementation cost of $125,000, the full payback period for this investment is under a year. Beyond the payback period, the ROI is significant. Over three years, the investment can result in a 300% return, paying for itself three times over.

At Willrich Precision, we offer a wide range of metrology products, from sophisticated scanners to basic measuring tools, ensuring that we have the right solution for your dimensional inspection needs.

Don’t let bottlenecks hold you back. Automate your QC process with Willrich Precision Instrument and experience the benefits of increased efficiency and improved ROI.
