Assembly technology is constantly being developed, refined and researched to provide the most cost-effective and efficient solutions to manufacturing problems.Assembly Automation's content includes some parts,but it is not restricted,so that engineers and managers can gain immediate advantages on their own assembly lines.
1.artificial intelligence for assembly
Artificial intelligence is primarily concerned with symbolic representations of knowledge and heuristic methods of reasoning, that is, using common assumptions and rules of thumb.artificial intelligence for assembly is largely experimental, with small patches of mathematical theory. In artificial intelligence, the basic paradigm of intelligent action is that of search through a space of partial solutions for a goal situation.
compliant mechanisms are flexible mechanisms that transfer an input force or displacement to another point through elastic body deformation.Since the compliant mechanisms are single-piece structures, there is no need of assembly.
Some of the joining techniques that have been implemented include remote laser welding, resistance braze spot welding, single sided spot welding, and tandem mig welding.
4.manufacturing control systems
Protecting manufacturing automation and control systems computer environments is absolutely critical.
5.robot assembly stations etc
Robot assembly is only effective if the robot’s flexibility is used to best advantage. Additionally, peripheral devices supporting the robot must also be adaptable to handle a wide variety of products and product parts.
of course,the modular assembly systems and machie vision are importion for assembly line
.the robot assembly stations is achieved by using equipment that is ont designed specifially to handld a particluar type of part with minor modifications to tooling.
we know ,the assembly automation
has a good deal of assembly content.for example,modular assembly systems,parts feeders and parts presentation,rapid prototyping,parts feeding, flexible gripping,machine vision,inspection design for assembly.
so the assembly automation has some knowdelge which we should master.
