Automated, Inline Inspection Comes of Age One of the great bottlenecks in hand-layup or machine-layup is the chore of manually checking for gaps, overlaps, wrinkles and debris. Automated, in-situ inspection promises to bypass such manual labor and is already at work in several high-profile operations. More. International Innovation Could Have Game Changing Implications According to […]
