Interesting to see that feeling with the human hand for any miniscule imperfections at many quality control points is the best method. Exactly what I do when assessing how clean my pots 'n' pans are after washing 'em in the sink. Cue Max Bygraves, NOT ;o]
bumpkin It may 'only be a Skoda' but the beauty of robotics is that they can produce the same result every time. The accuracy and the tight tolerances compared to human assembly mean fewer rejects needing rectification so reducing costs. It's also the main reason that the modern car is so reliable compared to it's sixties equivalent. Obviously this means that the manpower requirements are much reduced with a further cut in costs. It's the main
reason that cars have become much more affordable since I started work in the early sixties. The downside is that the number of jobs available has diminished substantially so motor manufactures are constantly looking for new markets and updating models to keep sales going. We may not have noticed the affordability so much due to the weakness of sterling but if it wasn't for the robots we would be paying much more.
