High-volume assembly systems can produce scrap at an awesome rate, and low-volume systems that add a lot of value in each step can destroy profits in a single cycle, if any flaw in the process goes undetected. End-of-line inspection can't correct this situation. The answer lies in test systems integrated into the assembly process, with real-time feedback to keep the process under control.

  

Two vision cameras monitor a precision dispensing operation on an assembly machine, with two fiber-optic cables providing close-up precision lighting for each camera.
