In addition to robotics and assembly, there are many seemingly small influencing factors in automated production. However, these can have a particularly large impact on your entire production, affecting both product quality and your manufacturing costs.
Relevant data relating to machine, product quality and production process can be constantly logged by our systems.
Data acquisition increases transparency about plant behavior and can be made available via customer-specific MES interfaces. Data evaluation enables fast machine commissioning, process qualification and optimization, predictive machine maintenance or advanced machine diagnostics to ensure continuously robust production.
Automatic metrology replaces or enhances human visual inspection, increasing production line efficiency and quality and reducing manufacturing costs. Examples of use include precise and fast part and position detection, dimensional measurement, surveying, surface inspection, defect detection, layer thickness and 3D measurement.
Automated, high-precision integrated measurement technology ensures optimum manufacturing processes and ideal product quality. Possible applications include electrical measurement, spectral measurement, geometric measurement and force measurement for a wide variety of products.
After developing a pick-and-place handling system with SCARA robot for electronic components, Manz developed the first automation solution for crystalline silicon solar cells with SCARA kinematics in 1990.
In 1994, the first six-axis LCD handling robot was introduced to the Asian market. The automation system was designed for vertical loading of a PVD system under clean room conditions.
