Made Possible OnLogic

The Future of the Assembly Line with Liberty Reach

How Liberty Reach is Adding The Intelligence to Smart Manufacturing

The automotive industry has led the way in "smart manufacturing" from the very start, with the Ford assembly line, quite literally, putting the first pieces together in 1913. With Industry 4.0 ushering in a new era of connected machines, the modern factory is more efficient, more versatile and safer than ever before. Ensuring that equipment, operators and even the factory environment itself, remain productive, however, relies on a new breed of vision-based robotics.

V-Guide by Liberty Reach, just one of their robotic control products, is a vision system that utilizes true 3D vision sensors to optimize robotic pick and place functions.

More than just cars, the future of production

Liberty Reach, an industry leader in providing 3D Volumetric Sensors, computer vision algorithms and architectures for robotic manufacturing processes at General Motors, Tesla, Toyota, Ford Motor Company, and FiatChrysler (to name a few), uses custom proprietary OnLogic hardware as a controller for their robotic guidance machine-vision systems. These devices, paired with robot arms and other equipment, are helping manufacturers not only assemble the next great automobile, but also build the future of the assembly line itself. The basis of Industry 4.0 is intelligent devices making informed decisions about how to optimize actions and processes to save time and money while also protecting workers from the more dangerous aspects of large scale manufacturing.

With so much at stake, reliability is paramount. In addition to the potential safety hazards of robotic equipment failures, every minute of downtime can cost an auto manufacturer upwards of $45,000. Rugged computers from OnLogic provide the reliability, connectivity and installation flexibility necessary to keep the line running smoothly.

"Our clients’ work involves the tightest manufacturing tolerances with no room for variance or downtime, which is why we've partnered with OnLogic for our robot guidance machine-vision systems. OnLogic helped us find a custom solution that accommodates the PoE, graphics, and power input requirements our customers demand, all in a small and rugged form factor that stands up to harsh industrial environments."
