This week’s Simple Solutions features Automated Assembly Systems
Assembly involves the joining together of two or more separate parts to form a new entity which may be an assembly or subassembly. Automated assembly refers to the use of mechanized and automated devices (conveying, fixturing, part feeding, pressing, soldering, plastic welding, dispensing, screwing, riveting, inspection and product ID) to perform the various functions in an assembly line or cell. Automated assembly systems perform a sequence of automated operations to combine multiple components which can be a final product or sub assembly.
When to consider Automated Assembly Technology
Human Interaction during Assembly Line Production is undesirable – just ask Lucy…

Machine Driven Systems
VisionPro Deep Learning is the best-in-class deep learning-based image analysis software designed for factory automation. Its field-tested algorithms are optimized specifically for machine vision, with a graphical user interface that simplifies neural network training without compromising performance. VisionPro Deep Learning solves complex applications that are too challenging for traditional machine vision alone, while providing a consistency and speed that aren’t possible with human inspection.
COBOTS Empower Employees
Barriers to collaboration are a thing of the past, since FANUC’s CR Series Collaborative Robots safely work side-by-side with people without the need for safety fences. FANUC cobots immediately stop after coming into contact with a person or fixed object thanks to proven safe contact stop sensor technology. What’s MORE, FANUC cobots allow for customizable speed and safety settings, allowing you the freedom to do MORE with shared workspaces
Assembly automation success may be as simple as integrating the right part feeder into your automated manufacturing environment. Part feeding systems come in a variety of types, but flex feeders (also known as flexible feeders and flexible part feeders) are extremely efficient at handling multiple part geometries with a single feeder system. That means manufacturers can better accommodate frequently changing product development under tight time constraints.
