Manufacturing in modern times requires agility and speed to adapt to contemporary issues. The last three years have proven businesses that are not agile and ready to change will suffer. From COVID-19 to supply chain issues, many businesses integrate modern technology to meet challenges.
AI is becoming common in the manufacturing industry because it speeds up performance and provides a better output when coupled with automated assembly systems. Monitoring systems and performance remotely with AI systems prevents overcrowding at work, which is especially important for keeping employees safe during COVID.
Quality inspection is done remotely and in real-time when using AI. Waste is a big issue for all industries (cost/materials), but for the electronics industry, waste is terrible. On average, costs can go up 25% while forcing engineers and managers to reach out for help. AI systems are used to scan for and identify defects and anomalies.
Modular automated assembly systems require fewer workers to monitor and work assembly lines. These systems are also customizable and can adjust performance levels based on needs. When a supply chain slows, you do not want to belacking necessary material for building machines or scrambling to find electronics during a chip shortage.
Automated assembly systems are highly customizable and are built to solve specific goals. To find out more about integrating modern technology like robotics or vision systems into automated assembly, you should call us today.
