The AI Impact for Next-Gen Industrial Robots

Let’s take a closer look at next-generation, AI-enhanced industrial robots - today’s ripe conditions for emerging use cases, their benefits and promised opportunities – to find out why.

The Fourth Healthcare Revolution - Digital Technologies Are Driving a New Frontier in Medical Treatment

Healthcare has a long way to go before it reaches the level of digitalisation the manufacturing industry possesses. However, this slower pace doesn’t mean digitalisation isn’t already beginning to show its benefits in the medical sector.

You’re Never Too Small for Industrial Robots

There’s a misconception that industrial robots are reserved for manufacturing giants. But, according to the Robotics Industries Association (RIA), more enterprises with fewer than 100 employees now own up to ten robots — and this is a growing trend.

Envisioning the 6G Future

If we’re learning anything from 5G implementations, it’s that the demand for connectivity is increasing at an exponential rate as wireless communication is becoming more and more essential to our daily lives.

Bringing Handling Technology to Life

In the "KUKoMo" project, new robot solutions for collaborative assembly activities in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were tested for their feasibility and transferred to demonstrator solutions for cross-industry applications.

AI-powered SORT systems in E-Commerce Fulfillment

With AI-powered SORT systems, robots do the mundane, repetitive tasks, successfully piece-picking customer orders into completion. Thus, our customers can redeploy employees in more suitable roles throughout the supply chain.

Precision Motion Control Enables Automation

When digital information transforms into precise physical motion, previously infeasible use cases suddenly become possible. This improvement delivered Industry 4.0 to applications such as advanced robotics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT),.
