3 Ways Machine Vision Helps ManufacturingBy CIOAdvisor Apac | Thursday, November 28, 2019
Today, machine vision technology helps manufacturing facilities to increase industrial robots' usability and drive smart manufacturing.
Manufacturing facilities have greatly benefited from the commercial viability of future technologies. Advanced technology incorporation has provided tremendous potential for the realization of smart manufacturing, and machine vision, in this sense, is exceptionally vital. Machine vision helps to incorporate the sensing feature into mechanized operations, thus helping to reduce reliance on manual labor and improve automation. The following points show the potential of smart manufacturing machine vision.
• Automation Driven Palletization
Machine vision redefines the processes of palletization in the manufacturing sector. Palletization has historically been done by hand and was prone to errors. Products and boxes can be sorted quickly without the help of staff with machine vision. Machine vision cameras scan the metadata-tagged boxes. With machine vision, visual data is translated into actionable feedback, which instructs machines to position boxes on appropriate pallets.
• Manufacturing Facility Maintenance
Manufacturing facilities have a lot of complex equipment and machinery. Machine vision helps to improve manufacturing facilities maintenance. Smart monitoring capabilities receive a boost with the help of machine vision. It enables operators to detect potential breakdowns and failures well in advance, allowing repairs to be performed. It helps to reduce production lags, thus avoiding losses.
• Ensuring Standard Quality with AI
Providing standard production quality is essential in manufacturing. Using a sophisticated combination of technologies, machine vision helps manufacturers achieve this. Advanced cameras have 360-degree views of the assembly line's products and components. Such visuals are processed with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and ML backup to test essential attributes and ensure standard production quality as well as perfect packaging.
In addition, machine vision also enables manufacturing companies to improve security through potential 3-D inspection technologies that help detect real-time defects. Ultimately, machine vision improves processing output and reduces operational costs.
