Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automated Industrial Quality Control Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automated industrial quality control market: GOM, Honeywell, IVISYS, KEYENCE, and Renishaw.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABB, ATS Automation Tooling Systems, MasterControl, Nanotronics, RNA Automation, and Shelton Machines.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emerging demand of robotics in QC processes. Vendors in the global automated industrial QC market have recently introduced virtual measuring systems that support the quality control requirement of industry standards by implementing robots. The entire virtual measuring system works on robotics, kinematics, sensors, along with software and CAD data. These measuring systems provide a functional representation of the real-world measuring environment and analyze the required component positioning, space, and accessibility. The robots used in virtual measuring systems are integrated with artificial intelligence to handle real-time bug during the production processes. The operator gets the feedback as to whether holes, trim, slots, spring, CAD surface, and other aspects can be measured safely from a specific robot position. Further, the digital-to-physical synchronization in a virtual measuring room offers a flexible automated QC check during the manufacturing process.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing importance for accuracy in QC processes. The manufacturing sectors are constantly facing stress over the issue of QC, as it adversely affects their business outcomes. The compromised product quality may result in tarnishing the image of manufacturers, thereby affecting their sustainable business growth. Thus, industrial manufacturers are seeking numerous opportunities for enhancing their manufacturing standards and practices without affecting the cost of production. Moreover, multiple quality control processes during the production process are essential to increase the overall operational productivity.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High initial capital investment. Automated industrial QC in the manufacturing sector is carried out using high-end hardware devices and software. These systems include expensive scanners, cameras, conveyer belts, imaging sensors, and other mechanical tools to inspect the overall quality of industrial production. Thus, the high installation cost of automated quality control systems restricts the large-scale adoption of the systems.
