Robotics is key to machine retrofit
A fast return of investment and a low barrier to entry are important criteria for the implementation of automated processes. Retrofits of semi-automated or non-automated existing machines can achieve these goals, but present additional challenges. Integrating responsive robotic processes, supported by computer vision systems with artificial neural networks to detect dynamic process parameters, can solve these challenges.
The presentation will cover the challenges and solutions of a machine retrofit for tire and wheel assembly in the automotive industry.
