Automotive & Transportation

We at Leica want to be your dependendable collaborators, guiding you to optimal imaging solutions for automotive and transportation, so you can stay ahead of the competition. Our smart imaging solutions help you to address special applications to meet current and future needs, allowing you to concentrate on innovation.

You see consumer demand for innovative technologies always increasing, so they must be more and more implemented into new automobiles. Advances in e-mobility and navigation have made travel much easier. Fuel efficiency and safety are always improving. State-of-the-art communication and entertainment have changed dramatically our attitudes toward travel. However, you find that designing these vehicles is far from trivial. At the same time, you must satisfy ISO and VDA production standards while paying attention to coming trends, such as Industry 4.0.

Leica imaging solutions capture important details

Using our optics, you can reproduce faithfully the part’s or sample’s true colors with good resolution and rich contrast. The performance of our imaging solutions and optical measurement systems help you to reliably achieve the targeted performance.

Applications in automotive industry

  • Inspection of parts
  • Determination of engine component cleanliness
  • Evaluation of steel alloy inclusion rates.

Image quality is always crucial for these applications, because if you do not detect something important, then it may cause trouble.

Confidence in image results

Leica imaging solutions deliver reliable data and results, giving you peace of mind during data acquistion and analysis.

You must have confidence in your imaging data and measurement results, otherwise the conclusions may be doubtful.

Innovative technologies in automotive industry

The implementation of more innovative technologies in automobiles has required more electronics and electrical interconnections. As a result, inspection of auto electronic parts has steadily grown.

Analyze and report results easily, no matter the expertise level

Our encoded microscopes are smart imaging solutions which will ensure that you and every one in your team will meet documentation standards, like ISO 16232 or VDA 19, on the fly.

Meet documentation standards

The auto-storing of all relevant parameters with the image every time, in part, enables you to achieve this goal. All your reports will include reliable data and, whenever needed, the stored parameters can be recalled for review and verification of the results.

We chose an instrument from Leica Microsystems, because with all other microscope suppliers the instrument operation was much more complicated.

See more details with versatile illumination

We offer you imaging systems that allow you to see with less effort difficult-to-image details, due to the versatile illumination and high quality optics.

Stay focussed on innovation

For you to stay focussed on innovation, efficient, reliable inspection and evaluation of auto parts is a sginificant advantage. Inspection, quality control, and failure analysis often require imaging solutions where the illumination mode, lighting intensity and angle, influences dramatically the detail seen.
