The World Robotics 2021 Industrial Robots report shows a record of 3 million industrial robots operating worldwide - an impressive 10% increase from the previous year.
Synchronized Mobile Robot Fleets Bring New Versatility and Investment Protection to Assembly Operations
A trend toward replacing those fixed, conveyor-based assembly lines with fleets of mobile robots holds the promise of another step change in manufacturing efficiency and new adaptability to market volatility.
What's Holding Back Robot Adoption? - With the UK Lagging Behind Its Competitors, What Needs to Change?
While it's hoped that figures will have changed since the IFR's previous report, the gap between the UK and other countries shows there's still a clear need to drive up robotic adoption.
Understanding resolution, accuracy and repeatability is critical to specifying a position sensor. This paper defines these terms and discusses how they relate to overall system performance.
Compared to conventional lift trucks, LGVs provide more consistent throughput of pallets between manufacturing and distribution functions, less damage to racking, raw materials and merchandise, reduced labor requirements, and lower cost of operation.
In today's demanding market, efficiency of operations is an essential factor to remaining competitive. One area where there are often substantial opportunities for improvement is your warehouse pick paths.
The actual workflow that FrameSense is designed to automate is part of many manufacturing operations. A component comes out of a machine - here a press - and runs on a conveyor belt to a container.
Fiber optics transmit data as pulses of light through strands of fiber made of glass or plastic. When bundled with hundreds of other strands, the resulting fiber optic cable will transmit more data at faster speeds and over longer distances than high-grade copper cables.
In recent years, the need for a mini ball screws has become more evident through conversations with our customers and feedback from the marketplace. Specifically, the rising demand is for high-quality ball screws that are made in the U.S and available from stock.
As Everest Labs was developing their system to be sold to recycling centers worldwide, they found that their robot needed speed feedback in order to track the recyclables on the conveyor, and therefore needed a simple way to install conveyor speed feedback on a gear motor.
Successful AMR implementation requires careful consideration of several key factors: space analysis, floor conditions, and environmental factors, among others.
As enterprises transition to 5G wireless networks, which are built specifically to move even more data more quickly and more accurately, AMR performance will make a huge leap, with faster, more precise decisions about the paths they take within the facility.
By outsourcing this essential component of their projects, businesses can gain a competitive edge, save valuable time, reduce costs, and benefit from the expertise of conveyor system manufacturers.
Let's examine the risks associated with forklift operations and look at ways to use safety protocols and smart technology to enhance workplace safety and prevent forklift accidents.
What sets magnetic levitation apart is the ability to create a contactless, ultra-high-precision virtual bearing within our control system". Dr. Christian Rudolf provides a glimpse into the exciting development journey of PI's magnetic levitation solutions.
