Industry 4.0 and new production technologies result in shorter production cycle times, shorter product lifecycles and a growing complexity of product portfolios, bringing new quality challenges to the production floor. This makes manufacturing more complex and error prone, especially where assembly and inspection still requires a lot of manual work and classical methods such as templates and printed drawings are still common. At the same time, it also makes it harder to leverage benefits of training and learning curve effects.
However, Industry 4.0 does not only raise new quality challenges, but luckily can also help to answer them. Technical Assistance Systems, a main technology driver in Industry 4.0, provide platforms to guide workers and quality managers closely through their tasks.
This webinar provides insights on how technical assistance systems enable you to tackle Industry 4.0 quality challenges and presents FARO solutions that help you improve quality and increase productivity in assembly and quality assurance (QA).
In the webinar, we will highlight two practical examples – 3D Guided Assembly and Assembly Verification based on Laser Projection systems and Virtual Inspection based on Augmented Reality.
One of the basic premises is, that quality assurance needs to start with the assembly process itself – either by preventing costly errors right from the start (3D Guided Assembly) or by identifying errors as early in process as possible to minimize their costly impact (Assembly Verification, Virtual Inspection). In addition, these solutions help you to get rid of classical but error-prone, time- and cost-intensive methods such as tools, templates or printed drawings.

FARO TracerSI Imaging Laser Projector and FARO TracerM Laser Projector accurately project a laser outline onto a 3D surface or object. The Tracer provides a virtual template which operators and assemblers can use to quickly and accurately sequence work and position components
FARO Visual Inspect is a powerful mobile solution to control production processes. It allows for intuitive viewing as well as the use of complex 3D data of parts and assemblies and additional information such as process and workflow details on an iPad. Visual Inspect AR expands the functionality of Visual Inspect and provides innovative Augmented Reality to the base package.
