Silverstone shows video about robot assembly of power suppliesby Christoph Katzer on February 24, 2009 12:00 AM EST

Silverstone has recently uploaded a video showing the robot assembly of one of their power supplies. The video will most likely show the factory of IS Quasar which is assembling many of Silverstone's power supplies in that way. It makes in many ways sense to use such an assembly line because you can pretty much rule out human errors. Please note that only the PCB assembly is done by the robots. The final assembly of the power supply is still not possible with robot-arms so we still find humans in the end of the production line. The shown power supply is the Zeus with 1200 watts which we tested last year. The build quality was indeed above what we normally get to see with other power supplies. The robot assembly has unfortunately nothing to do with the performance of the unit since this is based on the design and topology. You can be sure however that the units assembled in this way have a very good build quality.
