Robotic-assisted Advanced Measurement for Smart Factories

In the plastics industry there is a need for a thickness measurement solution capable of handling complex multilayer and opaque parts. Incumbent solutions are either expensive and difficult to integrate, or hard to automate. With a continuing push towards industry 4.0, the ability to quickly integrate quality data into the manufacturing process is of significant value to companies. Without measuring their products automatically, the industry 4.0 connectivity links are broken, the labor cost becomes prohibitively high, and the quality of the end products is not guaranteed. TeTechS and its partners will develop a robotic assisted technology deployed on the factory floor to improve the quality assurance process of manufactured plastics.
