Assembly automation: proceedings of the 9th International conference, 15-17 March 1988, London, UK
This highly successful annual event moves to London for 1988, with a change in format, offering two one day seminars and a two day conference programme. Papers from all three events are included in this volume, the ninth in the series. The first seminar is entitled "Japan vs Europe" and includes papers from distinguished Japanese academics and industrialists outlining some of the differences in national approaches. "Product Design for Assembly" looks at the design implications of advances in assembly technology. Led by Alan Redford and Myrup Andreasen, these sessions include case study material from Adept Technology and Lucas Engineering and Systems.
