Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR INSPECTION OF A MID-LENGTH SUPPORTED STEERING COLUMN ASSEMBLY
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR L'INSPECTION D'UN ENSEMBLE COLONNE DE DIRECTION SUPPORTÉ À MI-LONGUEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (110) (and associated method) for inspecting a steering column assembly (10) including at least one motorized roller support assembly (118) that is adapted to rotatably support the steering column assembly at least partially along its length, and at least one optical scanning device (158) adapted to optically scan a feature of Interest of the steering column assembly while the shaft of the steering column assembly is rotated for gathering data for identifying one or more deviations from one or more predetermined values for the feature of interest.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (110) (et un procédé associé) permettant d'inspecter un ensemble colonne de direction (10) comprenant au moins un ensemble support de cylindre motorisé (118) qui est conçu pour soutenir rotatif l'ensemble colonne de direction au moins partiellement sur sa longueur, et au moins un dispositif de balayage optique (158) conçu pour balayer optiquement une caractéristique d'intérêt de l'ensemble colonne de direction pendant que l'arbre de l'ensemble colonne de direction tourne pour rassembler des données permettant d'identifier un ou plusieurs écarts par rapport à une ou plusieurs valeurs prédéfinies pour la caractéristique d'intérêt.
