Automotive windscreens are being inserted "on the fly" at the Dagenham, Essex, UK plant of the Ford Motor Company in what is being described as a world first in the technology. The technology reduces labour and capital equipment costs, as well as providing a more accurate "fit" of the windscreen in the aperture. The system uses robots and gripper-mounted specular reflection sensors to locate the windscreen aperture and insert the windscreens.
