Offshore manufacturing is a business aspect where an entrepreneur relocates or sets his/her manufacturing plant in another country where conditions of manufacturing like labor and raw materials are more cheaper or where the manufacturing environment is more favorable for export and/or eventual import to the manufacturer’s home country.
Industrial robots find application in tasks such as repairing, welding, painting, grouping, allocating, product inspection and testing. Vehicle and manufacturing industries use these appliances to design auto parts, gather equipment and scrutinize manufactured parts. Industrial robots are substituted for manpower in perilous jobs, which require carrying out hazardous and unsafe tasks.
Contour Inspection. Machine vision systems for contour inspection examine the profile of an object using high-resolution cameras and 3D sensors to ensure it is free from deviations (e.g. chips), which affect the shape and thus the function of the product. They also check measurements such as length, width, and radius to ensure they are within set parameters.
Since manufacturing products in the U.S. is more expensive due to salaries, compliance regulations and cost of materials, it has to be high quality. This is why knowledge of quality systems is important. The goal of a quality system is to ensure that the manufactured product has very little variance from the design standard. It is based on statistical process control (SPC). Six Sigma, ISO 9001 or TQM are different kinds of quality systems. Knowledge of any of these systems would make a job seeker stand out from the other job candidates.
