Characteristic features include screws, pins, fuses, and other electrical components. Machine vision systems also check for missing slots or holes, which can prevent proper assembly. Inspection takes just seconds, even with a huge variety of different parts, allowing manufacturers to maintain high levels of efficiency and productivity.
Okay so, rather than running redline down the Six Sigma, TQM, and Finite Capacity Scheduling Model assembly line – why not really mix things up? Why not turn the three story assembly floor into a robotic Rubik’s Cube factory floor, which would operate like a robotic parking structure. An AI mathematical system could keep the system at optimum, and it would allow for all sorts of possibilities? Well, why not think on that for the next five-minutes and shoot me an email if you have any ideas along this line of thinking?
There are many works that robot can carry out but some work only human beings can do. No robot can replace any human being but robots can perform few works more efficiently which are repetitive. All you need to do is program them in the way you want them to work. Many industries have been making use of these robots for many purposes like manufacturing, automotive, biotech, pharmaceutical and machinery.
The industrial robots can be programmed for performing a single function at a time and can only perform that particular function till they are reprogrammed. The cost of a robot is not very huge, but generally the cost of programming the robot is so high that instead of reprogramming it the manufacturers find it more economical to buy a new one for a different task. In simpler terms we can say that usually the cost of the robot is just a fraction of the cost of programming it.
Machine vision has a wide range of applications in industrial automation: 2D Robot Vision. 2D vision systems use line-scan or area-scan cameras to capture photographic images that contain width and length, but no depth. By processing these images, they measure the visible characteristics of an object, and feed robotic handling systems data on its position, rotational orientation, and type.
