Today, conventional requests for automation and modern requests for flexibility in handling product diversity and changes in production volume regarding assembly operation are increasing. In order to satisfy those, the “Innovative Automation Cell” (Refer to Figure 1) has been proposed as an innovative assembly production system in lieu of an assembly line operation, which has been continuing with the use of automatic conveyance. Furthermore, technical developments were implemented, such as “Real-time Position Attitude Correction Technology” and “High-speed Emergency Recovery System”, as well as “Assembly Operation Support System”, to make an easy system for an operator, so as to minimize reduction of run rate in mass production practices.
This article addresses the concept of the “Innovative Automation Cell”, the details of the developed technology, the effects of introduction to mass production, and future issues. Proposed concept is more than double in production efficiency compared to manual assembly.
