ELECTRONICS & CONSUMER DURABLES
The electronics sector is another prime area for assembly automation and robotics. The volumes are high and the tasks are repeated. Very high precision and high speeds are required to meet the throughput demands of this industry. Cost optimization is also a must in order to remain competitive. Both robots and assembly automation solutions are suited to improve quality and productivity in this sector.
This industry goes though frequent model changes and technology upgrades. Flexible automation is most suited here. Robots are often considered capital equipment and the systems integration components such as conveyors, grippers and fixtures can be changed or modified to suit the model change. The basic design needs to be designed keeping frequent model changes in mind.
