Electricity/Electronic Fields

Electricity and electronic fields require elaborate and complex work, yet a high percentage of tasks are still performed manually. A major issue faced is how to automate the processes of part loading, surface implementation, PCB assembly, unit assembly and shipment in order to reduce human error. e-F@ctory helps provide a solution to this issue by providing robots equipped with force sensors and work support systems.
