Assembly Automation Systems Market - Overview
An assembly automation system is a dedicated system utilizing mechanized and automated devices for producing goods and performing various functions in an assembly line. Its basic functionality is an organized approach of assembling goods which is partly automated and partly controlled by humans. For this purpose, automated assembly system performs a series of automated operations for combining multiple components into a single unit which can be used as a final product or sub assembly. Generally, automated machinery is used to produce products in which standard components or parts are added in a definite sequence of events along what is commonly called an assembly lines. Automated assembly system forms an integral part of the process in many technical organizations, manufacturing industries, medical research, clinical companies, etc. Some of the advantages of assembly process from a conventional automation systems are in terms of labor savings, consistency of input and output, capability to handle multiple tasks so as to meet demands of a manufacturing process, better reliability and profitability through higher production rate.
