In most industrial settings, robots speak one language and the plants within which they work speak another.
When it comes to addressing manufacturing labor challenges, companies shouldn't be quick to assume that job opportunities will decrease as a result of an increase in automated systems.
The inevitable Internet of Things is already taking shape, absorbing the world of consumer devices and hovering on the horizon of industrial manufacturing.
OCTOPUZ was created to meet the rising needs in the robotics industry, and uses a revolutionary method of combining offline programming of robots with manufacturing process simulation.
The gripper spider for fiber composite components is a great example how significant this contribution to the intelligent factory can be in practice.
Facing challenges of labor shortages and aging labor forces, Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs is implementing "Productivity 4.0" to stimulate economic growth and upgrade industries.
The recent developments in algorithms and sensor technologies make it possible to efficiently implement vision guided robotics tasks for manufacturers.
Understanding an application's requirements is critical in choosing the best device for successful data acquisition.
RPA can bring about a "virtual integration" of multiple systems while executing repetitive work more accurately and reliably than humans can.
The idea of many connected devices helping better control the factory floor is not new. IoT in one sense is merely a shift to internet addressable devices versus those either addressed by proprietary means or just "dumb".
