New developments in robotics - including smart robotics, collaborative automation, and similar technology - may be essential for processors handling these modern challenges.
Retrofit machines can bring legacy devices into the Internet of Things. Sensors and digital controls provide valuable information and integrate older machines into new, intelligent factory management systems.
According to a recent report from the World Economic Forum, 85 million jobs could be lost and displaced by new technologies in the next five years. It's no surprise that workers, particularly in manufacturing, worry how these developments will affect their jobs.
The manufacturer of the robot processing cell is the Zimmer Group from Rheinau in Germany. On its way towards Industry 4.0, the Zimmer Group has evolved from a classic component supplier to a system provider and has thus produced an entire robotic cell at once.
As the use of robotics and automation increases, so too does the need to protect these valuable assets.
The risk to humans in warehouses is well known with the UK logistics sector reporting around 28,000 non-fatal accidents at work annually but businesses are now realising the risk of safety to highly sophisticated and expensive assets noting that these too require protection.
Running a well-optimized warehouse can help maintain high productivity levels, reduce error rates and keep clients satisfied. There are many ways to achieve better optimization, and installing automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) is a popular solution.
Zimmer Group is announcing the introduction of an updated version of its established XYR1000 axis compensation module series.
Stretch's mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required - unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.
Not every deployment of new robots goes smoothly. There are significant challenges to adopting any new technology, and the complexity of cutting-edge robotics means there is serious room for error when deploying industrial robots
To customize a robot interface, the only thing required is the robot HMI. However, there is a wide array of HMIs that differ from each other based on several factors. The challenge is to determine which is the best HMI.
Trade publications offer significant benefits for manufacturers in need of boosting inbound leads and sales, fast.
Automation in the supply chain isn't a new phenomenon, but it carries new urgency now. What was once a competitive edge is now a necessity. Robotics will power the logistics industry this year, and here's how.
The COVID-19 crisis has spurred life sciences labs to ramp up output at warp speed - and Stäubli Robotics is helping to meet critical needs.
While American manufacturers took a hit early on, the sector experienced a 30-month high in December as some U.S. companies calmed supply chain chaos by turning to domestic sourcing options.
With a clear shift towards more digitally enabled roles and a growing need for more automation and/or robotics across all industries, this requires more skilled people within these environments.
