The following story explains how and why machine vision applications have broken through a mental barrier and now assist on the assembly line. Vision-capable machinery is delegated more responsibilities owing to flexibility, functionality, reliability, and trust. More Luddites?
"A couple of demonstrations that GE Fanuc set up in its booth at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago really showed how useful machine vision (MV) can be in machine-tool applications. In one demonstration, MV-guided robots moved parts along a simulated processing line that included milling and deburring stations. The second used two synchronized robots to assemble a gear box."
