Cognimetrica offers a full range of services – from design to implementation – related to replacing the work performed by human hands with the activities carried out by machines.
The obvious advantages of production automation are:
- reducing production costs
- improving the quality and precision of products
- improving depreciation and use of machinery
However, we primarily focus on more sophisticated activities related to the concept of Industry 4.0.
Industry 4.0 is the next generation of solutions in the field of Production Automation. It means a set of activities integrating the real (mechanical) world of robots with the virtual world of computer science, information techniques, cloud computing and artificial intelligence algorithms.
This approach opens up completely new possibilities related to the optimization of production lines in real time, further increase in production efficiency or a much greater range of production flexibility associated with changes in product parameters or the range in a very short time.
The Internet of Things is a key component of production automation that enables the implementation of Industry 4.0 class solutions.
Hardware and software of this type are responsible for the communication of devices (robots, sensors, peripherals) – most often for control, diagnostics, monitoring and data collection for analytical purposes.
We design and manufacture Enterprise IoT class devices to meet the needs of a particular customer while maintaining security principles, using industry standards with a flexible method of accounting (billing).
This is another element necessary to implement modern and adaptive Production Automation solutions.
It is an automatic visual analysis of the environment or objects, similar to human vision and on its basis, adapting (reprogramming) the behavior of robots depending on the current needs.
One of Machine Vision applications is Quality Assurance, which means checking the quality of an item on an ongoing basis and taking appropriate action (repair or rejection of the product) depending on the result.
