|Traditional manufacturing methods lose orientation as the
part is ejected from the mold and randomly falls into a bin. At time
of assembly, part orientation must be reestablished by one of
three methods: 1) Manually by a human operator, 2) Robotically
using a robotic arm and grippers, or 3) Automatically using
expensive, specialized automated assembly equipment, typically
dedicated to perform one task. This creates an unnecessary step
in the manufacturing process.
