DIGITISATION IN THE PAINT SHOP IN MLADÁ BOLESLAV
Watch Out – Trolley’s Coming!
Videomapping alerts our employees to hazardous areas, navigates them during part packing and assists them in bonding elements to the bodywork
ne of the modern technologies being promoted in the field of Production and Logistics uses light rays: Laser projectors project symbols onto various surfaces. It is applied in three activities. In logistics, videomapping is used to fill pallets with sets of disassembled cars to be exported. By using symbols, pictures, texts and videos, the laser projection shows workers exactly where to put a specific part on the pallet and how to fix and protect it. The system can also verify whether a part is in the right position and has been properly rotated.

Another way of using videomapping is by projecting safety warnings on the floor. This system can be found in the car factory at several locations, and the latest one is our new M18 Paint Shop. “While the projection was retrofitted to our other operations, it was planned for operation since the beginning. We use Visap technology as our safety marking to alert our workers to dangerous sections. When they enter a road where motorised trolleys are moving, a warning is projected onto the floor”, says Ladislav Kocmich of PFO 8/11 – M18 Paint Shop Production Section (base). At the Paint Shop, another symbol is projected on the floor. It is a special clothing warning that appears when our employees enter the facility. The system features a detector that detects an incoming person at a distance of 3 to 5 metres and projects the symbol in his or her path.
The third operation, where the projection is used, is in our “old Paint Shop” in building A, at the Decor department. There, the light instructions make the work easier for colleagues who attach labels, logos, signs with model names and engine designations to the finished bodywork. While previously they would follow their written manuals and instructions, our current system projects everything directly on the bodywork, including the exact locations of specific elements.
