According to Universal Robots (UR), in 2019, around 38 per cent of the manufacturing labor force still moved parts manually between bins and manufacturing machines, rather than use industrial robots.
RoboBusiness 2022 will take place October 19-20 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Since its founding in 2004, RoboBusiness evolved into the world's premier robotics business development event.
While integrating robots and AI into our warehouses can help with production and quality assurance, care must be taken when this tech is first introduced. Managers need to familiarize their employees with these innovations..
Apart from being unsafe for workers, and thus requiring specific safety measures within their working area, industrial robots are also exceedingly expensive and difficult to set up and redeploy.
The new product development agreement is an expansion of this collaboration and offers new opportunities for the two companies to work together to further increase efficiencies across the FedEx enterprise using AI-enabled robotic automation.
Our remotely operated forklifts allow operators to do their jobs from up to thousands of miles away. This is critically important to our customers, who have been dealing for decades with a labor shortage that recently has become even more acute than ever before.
The global automation solutions leader invests in US manufacturing with plans of a second expansion in three years to meet growing need
As companies continue to integrate more automation into their warehouses and DCs, the need for intelligent sensors to monitor and guide that equipment in a very safe, efficient, and productive manner will also increase.
The 2021 World Robot Report shows that the global number of robots per 10,000 employees has risen from 66 to 126 between 2015-2020. So which sectors are reaping the rewards?
Today's integrated power modules are addressing the demanding size, weight, power budgets and cost efficiencies required to move robots from factory, residential and commercial applications into a vast new landscape bounded only by the imagination.
AGV's and AMR's address a number of key manufacturing process and facility-related concerns as well as key cost-related metrics in the migration towards continuous improvement philosophies such as lean manufacturing and six sigma.
Challenges faced by drones in healthcare - Drones can help improve healthcare, but it is still a new technology
Simulation models show that this new mode of transport could have huge cost advantages, with savings between 20 and 50 per cent compared to traditional multi-tiered land transport systems.
The traditional portfolio mix of heavy hardware-orientation with associated software is transitioning to application and non-control software. The move to solutions combining hardware, software, and services is real.
A number of vendors were displaying robotic solutions at Greentech this year. These solutions ranged from newly introduced mobile harvesting robots, to more traditional stationary robots used for processes like transplanting, grading, and sorting.
Although automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are, by definition, designed to run autonomously, they usually need to collaborate with people and therefore move, and react, in a safe, predictable manner.
