As conventional production lines become less suitable and industrial automation becomes an inevitable trend, automated production lines have emerged to meet the development needs of businesses. Among them, assembly lines have also been greatly improved to cater to various types of goods and products.
Details about assembly lines
The assembly line is a programmed production process that involves various transportation devices, equipment, robots, and industrial machinery. It is widely used for mass production of similar products.
Robotic assembly refers to the robotic arms that can operate automatically (or semi-automatically) according to pre-defined programs in the assembly line. They are responsible for assembling parts and components and transferring them to the next stages.
Common types of automated assembly lines
Depending on the purpose and conditions of the manufacturing facility, assembly lines can be categorized into different types. Here are some common ones:
Automated Assembly Line
The automated assembly line is specifically designed for the purpose of assembly, testing, marking, packaging, etc., in the production process. It consists of transportation devices, industrial robots, specialized machinery, and equipment. The majority of assembly or production tasks are replaced by robotic assembly, with humans playing a role in control.
Classic Assembly Line
This type of assembly line utilizes a series of steps and different individuals to create a product.
Non-Continuous Assembly Line
This type of assembly line is used to produce similar but not identical products. For example, the furniture industry may employ a non-continuous assembly line to produce products with different fabric coverings.
Lean Assembly Line
The Lean assembly line is similar in nature to an automated assembly line but requires a team of workers rather than just one or two individuals.
The application of robots in the manufacturing industry includes the following sectors:
Electronic and Mechanical Components: Robots are widely used in the electronic component industry due to the high precision and technical requirements of the products. The assembly line for electronic components consists of modern assembly equipment and strictly controlled assembly processes.
Electronic component insertion robots can easily perform tasks that require high accuracy and agility, such as inserting electronic component pins, placing electronic components on PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards), etc. Each robot is assigned a specific role for different types of components in order to maximize productivity.
These robots operate in conjunction with a feeding system to deliver components and parts to pre-programmed positions.
Automotive and Motorcycle Manufacturing: Currently, automotive and motorcycle factories in Vietnam are actively investing in automated assembly lines for various parts such as frames, suspension systems, wheels, brakes, and many other accessories.
