2 The next step involves attaching the metal base to the glass bulb with a special cement. The machine that performs this operation also solders or welds the lead-in wires to the base, to provide the electrical connection. 8). 1), as otherwise the thermal stresses that develop may cause cracking of the glass stem. The bulb base is generally made from aluminum, replacing the more expensive brass base that was used many years ago. To reduce friction and thus allow easy insertion of the bulb into a socket, the metal base is coated with a special compound.

Introduced in the early 1960s, industrial robots (Fig. I_10) have rapidly been replacing humans, especially in operations that are repetitive, dangerous, and boring. As a result, variability in product quality is decreased and productivity improved. Robots are particularly effective in assembly operations, and some (intelligent robots) have been developed with sensory-perception capabilities and movements that simulate those of humans. Automated materials handling. Computers have made possible highly efficient handling of materials and components in various stages of completion (work in progress), as in moving a part from one machine to another, and then to points of inspection, to inventory, and finally, to shipment.

Flexible manufacturing systems (FMS). These systems integrate manufacturing cells into a large production facility, with all of the cells interfaced with a central computer. Although very costly, flexible manufacturing systems are capable of producing parts efficiently, but in relatively small quantities, and of quickly changing manufacturing sequences required for different parts. Flexibility enables these systems to meet rapid changes in market demand for all types of products. Expert systems (ES).
