Connectors Arise for Automated Assembly Using Industrial Robots
n the connector industry, the development of connectors that support automated assembly using industrial robots has been very active. Automated mounting using robots has begun to be put to practical implementation and is expected to find wider use in the coming years. It is expected to contribute to the improvement of assembling quality and labor saving. Recently, new product development of floating board-to-board connectors with improved high-speed transmission performance has become active, meeting market needs.
Production using industrial robots is expected to be adopted in various industrial fields as it leads to the improvement of assembling quality, stabilization of production tact time, elimination of human errors, and reduction of manufacturing costs through labor saving. Accommodation to 24-hour, 365-day operation is also another factor for their adoption.
