The presentation will detail a real-world case study of designing and implementing a robotic marking and traceability cell into aerospace manufacturing. It will follow through from project concept, determining the business case for investment in robotics, the physical and software choices made, and the benefits to the end user.
The system has been in production use for more than one year and the presentation will therefore also highlight ongoing savings in maintenance and reduced quality escapes. The presentation will also highlight the benefit given by the process that was implemented: providing unique part identification and traceability through the production cycle with 100% machine vision quality checking.
- Understand the benefit of using an automated robotic system in a low volume aerospace manufacturing process
- Identify the necessary features of an automated system required to eliminate operator error
- Establish a business case for investment in a robotic system in a real world aerospace manufacturing process
Why Is It Important?
The presentation will outline a real-world case study of how a fully automated, robotic solution has been implemented in a leading aerospace manufacturer. It will present the business case that justifies the use of robotics in quality critical processes and outline how vision systems and software combine to completely eliminate quality escapes from critical component production.
