Weld Inspection Platforms for Automotive Assembly



Comau came to Spika to develop and provide weld inspection stations for the automobile company Stellantis. The company was looking for non-hydraulic lift platforms that could provide ergonomic worker access for weld inspection and verification and integrate into the existing safety and controls system.

i case study

Client Need:

Comau needed a company to develop and provide weld inspection stations for Stellantis factories. Previous inspection stations were heavy, clunky, and hydraulically operated.


Spika worked closely with the Comau/Stellantis team to develop the systems required for each automobile model, ensure all performance and contractual requirements were met, and provide all required documentation. The resulting work platforms were lightweight and elegantly designed and able to provide the technicians with complete ergonomic access for weld inspection. Controls included position feedback and monitoring, maintenance mode lockout, and the prevention of slide adjustment at specific platform heights.

Spika provided the units as turnkey systems, which were then integrated by Comau and Stellantis into the plant assembly lines and facility safety systems.

Technical Information:

  • Non-hydraulic lift platforms that could provide complete, ergonomic worker access for weld inspection and verification.
  • Access to the auto body at various positions via electrically actuated height adjustability of 50 inches.
  • An electrically actuated slide to access the rear of the auto body.
  • Extensive controls and safety systems that had to integrate into existing facilities.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
