JULY 5, 2007–Applied Manufacturing Technologies (AMT; Orion, MI, USA; www.appliedmfg.com), a supplier of factory automation design, engineering, and process consulting services announced new feasibility consulting services for robot guidance and quality inspection. The new service allows manufacturers to identify potential opportunities to use machine vision for robot guidance and quality inspection.

"Machine vision systems can often be implemented to improve process efficiency and eliminate non-value-added labor such as manual inspection for repetitive quality inspections," said Joseph Campbell, COO of AMT. "With these feasibility services AMT can review manufacturer's parts and application to conclude whether machine vision can improve that process. AMT does not sell vision equipment. This allows us to take a neutral approach and recommend the solution that is best suited for our customer's application."

The new service can determine if an application is suitable for machine vision, right for the facility, and technically feasible. On review of the customer's parts and application the resulting report will determine if machine vision is applicable and if so can also include a list of components needed to engineer the system. The new service is based on a fixed fee and packages start at $2,100.
