Assembly lines are often thought of as a linear process with a single uniform result. But in reality, assembly lines can be designed to be flexible enough that different variations of a product can be produced as it progresses through the line.
Midwest Engineered Systems designed a single manual production line for a firm that could manufacture over a dozen different variations of a hydraulic motor. The line utilizes a large number of sub-assembly stations, where workers perform the required tasks based on the specific variant of the motor being assembled. The entire production is monitored by a vision system that keeps track of the motor assembly progress. Read more about how MWES designed this firm’s manual production line.
