Thermal imaging maintains QC at Audi production plant

Audi is making extensive use of thermal imaging technology for testing supplied parts and internally developed engines to meet its exacting quality criteria.

Thermal imaging cameras from Flir Systems are being used to test all parts – from simple items such as transmission belts to complex ones such as turbochargers or catalytic converters before they are cleared for production.

A thermal imaging camera is also used on the engine test-bed. New engines are put on trial to determine heat build-up and distribution as well as the determination of the failure point. Audi also uses a Flir Systems infrared camera to test interior furnishing materials such as leather, wood and synthetics on wear and tear and material resistance, including under extreme climate conditions.
