How BMW Group Uses Artificial Intelligence for Next Generation Paint Shop Quality

BMW Group applies AI solutions to increase paint shop quality
Ongoing algorithm-based analysis of dust content in the paint booth

Artificial intelligence can bring even greater precision to controlling highly sensitive systems in automotive production, as a pilot project in the paint shop of the BMW Group’s Munich plant has demonstrated.

Despite state-of-the-art filtration technology, the content of finest dust particles in paint lines varies depending on the ambient air drawn in. If the dust content exceeded the threshold, the still wet paint could trap particles, thus visually impairing the painted surface.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) specialists from central planning and the Munich plant have now found a way to avoid … Read More »
