Assembly equipment is used in the production process of manufacturing goods. Assembly equipment consists of the machines, robots, components and conveyors used in the assembly line. This equipment is used in almost every manufacturing industry, including automotive, electronics, textiles, tool and die, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and construction.Assembly equipment refers to the individual pieces of assembly machinery that make up an assembly line. The overall function of the equipment in the assembly line is to work together, each machine doing one part of the production before the part being produced passes to the next machine. When a part has been worked on by every machine in the assembly line, it is a finished piece. This whole process goes very quickly, since machines do not tire, if they are well maintained, and therefore can run at high speeds for hours. Because assembly equipment is almost always used to mass produce one specific object at a time, the assembly machines themselves are usually custom built. They are also commonly automated systems, which cuts way down on human workers because once the assembly equipment is set up in an assembly line it does all the work mechanically, with very little asked of a human counterpart. In this way, a company installing assembly equipment to mass produce their product will be saving money, since they will not have to hire as many people to watch over the machinery.
