Vision systems from ATS are a primary consideration for any manufacturer who is looking to improve quality
or automate production or processes
in terms of smarter manufacturing
. Vision systems can be thought of as computers with eyes that can collect data
by identifying or inspecting and can communicate critical information to eliminate costly errors, improve productivity and enhance customer satisfaction through the consistent delivery of quality products.
Primarily used for online inspection, vision systems can perform complex or mundane repetitive tasks at high speed with high accuracy and high consistency. Errors or deviations in the manufacturing process are immediately detected and relayed, allowing control modifications to be made on the fly to reduce scrap and minimize expensive downtime. Vision systems are also deployed for non-inspection tasks, such as guiding robots to pick parts, place components, dispense liquids or weld seams.
