A.R.T. GmbH's solution VERPOSE® wins the 1st prize at the German Assembly Congress.
The award "Best assembly idea of the year" is given by leading experts and participants at the German Assembly Congress ("Deutscher Montage- Kongress"). The jury honours intelligent technologies for assembly. In 2019 the German company A.R.T. GmbH won the 1st prize for VERPOSE®, a quality assurance positioning solution for hand-held tools.
VERPOSE® (VERify POSition) is a camera system for hand-held assembly tools (electrical screwdrivers, riveting tools, clinching pliers, filling machines, and other special devices). A small camera is discretely mounted on the tool and observes the assembly position. VERPOSE® is optimally suited for series assembly, e.g. in the automotive industry.
VERPOSE® enables enhanced tool positioning in assembly processes. Therefore VERPOSE® supports a wide range of options for quality assurance and error reduction.
"One of the many advantages of VERPOSE® is the modularity of the system: by mounting our especially small camera in combination with the VERPOSE® software, the system can be quickly and easily adapted to a wide variety of tools and industrial requirements. Various automobile manufacturers have already tested VERPOSE and are reporting positive experiences," says Robert Bücher, Business Development Manager at ART and responsible for VERPOSE®.
