Testing and quality control.
Robot-based testing and quality control applications become more and more important and replace slowly the common visual inspection. Thanks to automated testing processes, reproducible results and cost savings can be achieved.
ABB Force Control can be used in different applications and includes features that allow the robot to perform actions with predefined forces or moments. This is important in the machining of complex contours as well as for test and measurement applications.
Another tool is ABB Integrated Vision which consists of more than 50 smart vision tools that reduce engineering times and can be deployed quickly. These tools, which perform tasks such as measurements and checks for completeness, are for users virtually impossible permanently and reliably performed.
