Mechanical Manufacture and Automation
Traditional manufacturing plants are facing challenges due to rising labor costs and higher demands from the market for production efficiency and quality. In a growing number of smart manufacturing plants, assembly line workers are being replaced by industrial cameras and robotic arms. Machine vision, with precision beyond the reach of human eyes, makes identification, detection and verification on the production line faster and more reliable; Motion control allows repetitive production operations to achieve “zero difference” specifications. The automatic production combining machine vision and motion control breaks through the bottleneck faced by traditional factories in quality and efficiency.
The perfect cooperation between machine vision and motion control requires a high-performance embedded industrial computer as the “brain” of the system to provide I/O connection to IP cameras, sensors and mechanical controllers for complex image recognition, algorithm operation and instruction distribution.
