Carrying out the Inspection
Arrangement of inspection equipment and main inspection items at the inspection course (There are some differences in the arrangement of equipment according to each inspection station)
Vehicle inspections are carried out by using automated inspection machines and by judgments based on what is evident through the eyes of our inspectors. Systems of inspection machines may vary from course to course, so please ask your inspector for further information.
Here, we will explain the flow of an inspection conducted using the automated total-inspection system (Multi-Tester).
Automated total-inspection system started installation in 1989 to correspond to the new technologies and structures of vehicles.
