Cobots are creating a disruption in automotive manufacturing, offering a number of benefits to businesses. How and why are these cobots being used, and what will their long-term impact be?
Those interested in entering the robotics field must be prepared with an understanding of the direction of the industry and the skills to thrive within it. Here, we explore how you can set yourself up for future success within robotics as manufacturing automation grows.
FANUC America and the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Agree to Co-market the Stackability of Their Certifications to Meet the Shortage of Skilled Industrial Robotics and Automation Operators
MSSC offers the added benefit of a nationwide delivery system of some 2900 MSSC-trained instructors and 1800 MSSC-qualified test sites, mostly at high schools and community colleges, and 72 technical field reps, in all 50 states.
In 2022 logistics will overtake manufacturing as the largest user of mobile robots. But this disguises a key trend: AMRs are making major inroads into factories.
Yantra replaces Traditional Navigation with 'Natural Feature' Technology from Guidance Automation, Reducing Maintenance and Manpower Expenses
The aerospace industry is constantly evolving, and modern robotics are driving that change. The last several years have seen significant growth in robotics, with much of it concentrating on industrial applications for the aerospace manufacturing process.
A recent report from Meticulous Research found that the food robotics industry is anticipated to grow to an astounding $2 billion by 2028. This growth indicates a turning point in the food industry, driven by a number of rising global concerns and trends.
Automation is an increasingly popular option for high-volume tasks requiring precise results. It minimizes the variability associated with manual tasks. Here are some of the specific benefits of pursuing automated plating.
While most manufacturing companies have begun to explore the next step in automation technology -- artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) -- a large gap exists between where they want their organizations to be with AI technology and where they are.
As manufacturing sectors of all kinds struggle with a growing labor gap, these collaborative grip designs can help streamline facility workflows, reducing the labor necessary to complete tasks while keeping the facility flexible and adaptable.
Like any mechanism, robots can shed particles from belts, gasses from hoses and dust particles from the movement of the end effectors. It is this particle disbursement that can be the critical issue for clean room robotics.
Automated packaging solutions can streamline almost any business's operations, providing a potential competitive edge and benefits like reduced waste or lower labor needs.
In May 2021, Ford opened the doors of its new Robotics Building as part of the University of Michigan. This massive structure is four stories tall and covers 134,000 square feet.
Currently, there are several tactile sensors used in cobots, including piezoelectric, piezoresistive, capacitive and elastoresistivity types. Piezoelectric technologies are used for gathering data from the cobot's joints and transmitting it to the controller
