Assembly Inspection. Proper part assembly is essential to any manufacturing process. Poorly assembled parts lead to malfunctioning, unsafe products. Machine vision systems equipped with fast, fixed focus cameras and LED illumination continuously inspect parts during assembly to verify the presence of characteristic features, and instruct robots to remove defect items from the production line.
A few leading vendors profiled in the report lead the market. ABB provides a comprehensive range of robots to help manufacturers improve productivity, product quality and worker safety.
