TOKYO , December 19, 2023 (press release) –

Ricoh Elemex Corporation (President & CEO: Yasutomo Mori), a subsidiary of Ricoh Company, Ltd. (President and CEO: Akira Oyama), today announced the launch of the RICOH Visual Inspection System 5000 series of vehicle paint inspection systems on December 19.

Combining Ricoh Elemex's many years of experience in inspecting painted products and its proprietary image recognition technology, this inspection system automates the visual inspection of automotive coatings, which was previously done visually, while maintaining high accuracy and without stopping the production line. The hybrid configuration of the fixed type on the side and the robot type on the top surface realizes the optimal placement of the camera and lighting, which stabilizes the image and enables highly accurate inspection. In addition, since various data such as the number of defects can be automatically recorded through automation, it can be expected to improve productivity not only by improving defects but also by analyzing data that can improve the source of the production line.

Ricoh Elemex has been developing coating appearance inspection systems for more than ten years and has introduced them to many mass production lines for automotive parts. We have further developed this technology and launched the RICOH Visual Inspection System 5000 series of coating visual inspection systems for automobile bodies. By improving inspection accuracy and productivity, we are contributing to the DX (digital transformation) of our customers' sites in the automotive industry.
