The assembly process is the last and most critical step in the mechanical manufacturing process, and its final effect directly affects the quality, production cost, production efficiency, and product quality of the product. To achieve automated assembly, it is not only necessary to have a very familiar understanding of the entire production process, but also to fully grasp the process and flow of automated assembly to ensure the accuracy of the assembly process.
Compared with traditional manual assembly, automated assembly has become an essential key link in modern production processes. Manual assembly is a labor-intensive process, and productivity is a function of the time spent by workers completing specific operations. Assembly labor accounts for a higher proportion of the total labor force in product manufacturing.
According to relevant data statistics and analysis, the assembly time of some typical products accounts for about 53% of the total production time, making them the most expensive production process. Therefore, improving assembly efficiency is one of the key issues that the manufacturing industry urgently needs to solve. With the widespread use of automated assembly technology in various manufacturing enterprises, the benefits and value it can bring are far higher than the value of automated assembly technology itself, and it is the best way to stimulate and promote the entire modern production mode.
Assembly is a complex production process, and manual operations are no longer suitable for the current socio-economic conditions. Because manual operation cannot guarantee the consistency and stability of work, nor does it possess the characteristics of accurate judgment, agile operation, and high stress. Compared to manual assembly, automated assembly has the following advantages:
High assembly efficiency, reducing product production costs. Especially with the continuous improvement of mechanical processing automation, the improvement of assembly efficiency is of greater significance for the improvement of product production efficiency.
The automated assembly process is generally carried out on the assembly line, using various mechanized devices to complete the most labor-intensive heavy work, greatly reducing the labor intensity of workers.
There will be no defects or instability in product quality caused by factors such as worker fatigue, negligence, emotions, or technical proficiency.
Completing the same production task requires much less production area for automated assembly than for manual assembly.
In industries such as electronics, chemistry, aerospace, and national defense, many assembly operations require special environments that are difficult or very dangerous for humans to enter. Only automated assembly can ensure production safety.
Today, with the rapid development of intelligence and automation, the significance of automated assembly production lines in the mechanical manufacturing industry is self-evident. The automated assembly production line is an important component of the comprehensive automation of the production process, aiming to improve production efficiency, reduce costs, and ensure product quality.
