The article will show how a 'local for local' production model - the strategy of manufacturing goods in proximity to their intended customers to promote regional self-sufficiency - can become a reality thanks to digital manufacturing.
The automated vertical lift project kicked off in January 2022 and relied heavily on technical assistance from the team at PathGuide to incorporate the automated vertical lift into Latitude.
Autonomous robots can augment or replace repetitive, manual tasks so workers can focus on higher-level, strategic activities. They are also able to tirelessly perform work at all hours of the day and oftentimes at greater speeds compared to humans
We recently hosted a webinar titled: "Unlock Value-Stream Productivity with Robotic Cutting". During this webinar, we polled audience members. Our first question: Have you looked at automating fabrication tasks in the past. Most respondents said yes, they had, in fact, explored this.
This soft robotic gripper is not only 3D printed in one print, it also doesn't need any electronics to work. The device was developed by a team of roboticists at the University of California San Diego.
Optimizing Servo System Performance: A Comprehensive Guide to Eliminating Electrical Noise and Enhancing Noise Immunity
This whitepaper will delve into the steps and techniques necessary for mitigating electrical noise in servo systems, ensuring optimal performance and reliability for high-precision applications.
A persistent shortage of labour remains a major issue for the UK warehousing and logistics sector. Automation and robotics are proven to help businesses significantly improve productivity and increase efficiency. But automating manual tasks is only half of the story.
By replacing manual CNC processes with the RB series cobots, the company has increased productivity by 40 to 50 percent. This has enabled the company to respond more effectively to client demands, which have increased two to three times since the recent semiconductor boom.
Labor shortages, demand fluctuations, and tighter budgets have more companies looking to automation to safeguard operations from this variability. However, human workers play a vital part in keeping order fulfillment cycle times low.
Whilst uptake in smaller manufacturing firms has been slower, those within the sector are slowly starting to see the value that digital twin technology can bring, no matter the size of the business.
The Kitchen Robotics company Cloud receives the customer orders via website or app, and sends the appropriate commands to the UniStream PLC, using an API that implements a dedicated TCP/IP protocol written in UniLogic, Unitronics all-in-one development software.
Eventually, automation will reduce human labor in manufacturing processes to a point where human workers won't have to do anything other than provide oversight, possibly through a human-machine interface (HMI).
Imagine a warehouse where every item you need is just a few clicks away. That is the beauty of Goods-to-Person Picking Systems (G2P or GTP). These innovative automated systems are revolutionizing the world of order fulfillment
As we will discuss in this article, cobots can add tremendous value to your operations, but you should be sure to pay attention to risk assessments and safeguarding requirements.
The purpose of the project was to improve laser welding procedures and determine if sustainable gear repair was possible using robot toolpath programming, digital twin, simulation, and post-processing.
