Quality assurance for large manual assembly (Research)
Given the importance of delivering high-quality products, the Flemish manufacturing industry is looking for new approaches that provide fast feedback loops. Because of this, acquiring quality data for large assemblies is a challenge to overcome. Making camera systems mobile via operator interaction can be a game changer. Sufficient detail will be required locally, while having to monitor the large volume of a big assembly product. In this project, manufacturing companies Atlas Copco and ZF Windpower, technology providers Rhinox, SupportSquare and Augnition, computer vision specicalist Kapernikov and researchers of Flanders Make will join forces to realize inline quality monitoring for IoT-enabled assembly systems. Mobile camera systems verifying the correct assembly of large product variants will be a flexible solution to assist operators in delivering efficiently high quality work in high-mix low-volume production.
