Robots, Jobs and Productivity in the Manufacturing Industry

Industrial robotics is changing the U.S. manufacturing industry portrait.

Innovative Flexible Automation Drives Rapid Growth

A manufacturing cell can reduce part transportation because the close proximity of the cell's resources makes part transportation almost non-existent.

Flexible Feeding - Greater Speed

The system has been designed to enable the picking surface to be changed very quickly.

Transforming 64-Bit Windows to Deliver Software-Only Real-Time Performance

Freed from the isolation of the real-time system and from other functions such as the user interface, OEMs are able to explore more innovative solutions with less risk and overhead.

The ABC of RPA, Part 3: What Steps Should I Take in Order to Start the Robotics Journey?

Identifying the departments with the biggest backlog, the most amount of overtime or the area that receives the highest number of complaints is a straight forward way to prioritize which areas of the organization to automate.

Why the Future of Robotics Lies in the Code

While the exterior mechanics of a robot may be fascinating, it is their programming and software that has the most utility for future workforces.

Aerospace: KUKA Omnimove Delivers Gigantic Aircraft Components With Millimeter Precision

Construction of the Airbus A380 in Hamburg involves moving aircraft components measuring 15 meters in length and weighing up to 90 tonnes.

Future Focus: Robotic Automation and Generation Z

Generation Z is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the surge in the development and implementation of robotic systems that increase productivity and cut costs in a variety of industries.

Japan is all set to welcome first ever Robot Development and Application Expo (RoboDeX)

The Expo is covering topics from development technology of robots to application of robots.

The ABC of RPA, Part 2: What are the opportunities to automate?

Robotic process automation can be applied across departments, from HR and Customer Service to Finance and Operations. 70-80 per cent of rules-based processes can be automated,

The ABC of RPA: What is robotics and automation in the office?

Robotics and automation in the office is actually much more subtle, and typically works behind the scenes.

Safety for Collaborative Robots: New ISO/TS 15066

Collaborative robots are the latest technology, and may provide just the solution you are looking for to improve your production process, but you must still make sure any risks associated with your robotic application are recognized and managed appropriately.

Types of Robotic Actuators

Actuators have become a crucial part of the automated system, as they help with controlling equipment using hydraulic, pneumatic or in some of the cases electronic signals.

Robotic Pickers and Forklifts

The new robotic movers no longer need to travel fixed routes, as they can be programmed while on the move. Focusing on automated materials handling processes, and the underlying robot perception technology, companies will be employing this sophisticated, state-of-the-art artificial intelligence now and in the future.

Symmetric Multiprocessing or Virtualization: Maximizing the Value and Power of a Soft-Control Architecture

For a truly simplified and streamlined architecture that is high-performing, scalable, efficient. and built for long-term value, an SMP-enabled Soft-Control Architecture is recommended.
