3D Seam Inspection. Poorly welded components break, causing products to fail. In the case of automobiles and aeroplanes, this often has disastrous consequences and costs lives. Robotic weld seam inspection and optimization is now the standard in many industries.
Robots are made in various shapes and sizes and generally their load carrying capacity depends up on their size and strength. An average human sized robot is capable of carrying a load of more than 100 pounds and can also move it very quickly at the rate of +/-0.006 inches. One of their major advantages is that they can work continuously for days and years at a stretch without developing any fault. Due to this persistent accuracy robots are fast becoming indispensable part of various industrial set-ups. Most often these robots are used for repetitive painting, welding and operations like picking up and placing products into the machines.
Manufacturing industries have been making use of robots and automation on a very large scale. Robots have been successful in meeting the requirements of precision, endurance, speed, and reliability. Robots perform all kinds of dangerous and dirty jobs. Robots also handle the manufacturing work which includes material handling (pick and place), welding, packaging, assembling, painting, palletizing, product testing and inspection.

The Obama administration is well aware of the high tech manufacturing competition in China and other Asian countries. In June 2011, President Obama launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, a $500 million effort between the government, universities, and corporate America to invest in new technologies that could create manufacturing jobs in the Untied States.
