Due to the detailed nature of automotive transmission manufacturing and the high cost of errors, vision inspection systems have become the key to ensuring high levels of quality and minimizing warranty costs.
The cell phone industry has been the single largest driver of new CMOS image sensor technology for the past ten years—smaller pixels, higher sensitivity, and lower noise—all in a bid to decrease sensor cost and capture ever higher quality still and video imagery for human consumption.
Practical implementation of a successful vision guided robotics (VGR) application requires an understanding of general architecture and design, lighting and imaging, 2D and 3D technologies, robots and calibration.
When problems occur on a production line, the cause can often be difficult or impossible to identify. Mechanical errors can happen so quickly that it’s impossible for staff to intervene before there are interruptions, shutdowns, or wastage.
In his new role, Wimmer will now be responsible for global sales operations which includes customer service, technical support, sales operations, sales contracts and Microscan's order management system.
