"The robot saves at least five hours in transport time a week, and the working day is quieter and calmer," Broberg said. "I already take 15,000 to 17,000 steps a day in my job, so I definitely don't miss the walk to the pallet stacker."
It is true that a collaborative robot is designed to work without additional physical guarding like fencing. But the robot is rarely a lone component in a system.
Regardless of the size of the company or industry in which it operates, adding automation into a business environment can mean a significant shift in the way an organization conducts itself.
Ease-of-use is a key element for improving maintenance pains for electronics manufacturers. When the robotic cell is designed for simplicity, it makes maintenance and management much easier for electronic manufacturers.
There is an increasing demand for collaborative robots that can work autonomously and adapt to changing production conditions. This requires reliable sensors that detect human presence and can overcome future challenges with the development of collaborative technologies.
Booth #4311 - The single-arm YuMi provides manufacturers of all sizes added flexibility and scalability to meet the challenges of high-mix, low-volume production in shorter cycles.
Because of the very complex nature of automotive manufacturing AGV vehicles on the plant floor must feature a wide range of standard modules that are configurable to meet automotive customers' automation needs.
Booth #4411 - We are showcasing our newest Manual Tool Changer, Force/Torque Sensor, and Universal Compliance Compensator models in a live robotic demonstration! These solutions are ideal for use in collaborative robot applications.
The profitable companies of the future will be those that can adapt to the change in sourcing, production and distribution that are happening today, and are flexible enough to take advantage of new technologies.
Partnerships with innovators in robotics, drones, sensors, and wearables make the smart warehouse customizable, flexible, and scalable
What's really encouraging is the expanded use by small and medium sized companies who are just beginning to automate as a result of their interest in using automation to become stronger global competitors.
In 2019 we'll see many incremental changes in robotics technology and business models that will keep us moving steadily forward. Some predictions will prove correct, while new and surprising developments will exceed our wildest dreams.
