Automated assembly systems are designed and built to maximise the quality and consistency of the assembly process. Assembly processes may be slow and intricate and suited to collaborative technology such as assembly of a pacemaker in the medical device industry.  Alternatively, the assembly process may fast and heavy suited more to industrial technology such as automotive assembly.  Automation of the assembly process is driven by health and safety issues such as repetitive stress injury or heavy lifting and by difficulty in recruiting operators for menial tasks.
