Choosing the right automation partners led Greene Tweed to quickly develop, integrate and install a more flexible automated material removal cell.
This is how Industry 4.0 technology is revolutionizing the robotics industry - and what changes robotics professionals should expect over the next few years.
Manufacturers have long relied on human vision for complex picking and assembly processes, but 3D vision systems are beginning to replicate the capability of human vision in robotics.
This small component was stopping them from realizing the full potential of their manufacturing process as they could only run the system when there was someone there to restart the system if a stoppage occurred due to slippage.
A recent Gartner survey showed 57% of manufacturing leaders feel their organization lacks skilled workers to support smart manufacturing digitization plans. Most agreed a long-term strategy is necessary to develop the connected factory worker.
As both an industry and an entire class of technology, robotics changes and advances rapidly. Whether as a hobbyist or seasoned robotics engineer, you need to know each component inside and out. You should also know how to choose between several different variations.
The opportunities, conditions and business advantages offered by properly functioning collaborative automation solutions have never been more attractive, while the technology is also more accessible than ever.
Horosys was able to standardize, add flexibility and optimize the cost of the Smart Micro Factory using the world's smallest and most precise industrial robot.
Almost all tasks that previously had to be carried out by hand at Zimm are now performed fully au-tomatically by a KR QUANTEC and a KR AGILUS from KUKA. The five-axis milling machine is supplied with raw material via a lift system.
Motion Controls Robotics (MCRI) is hosting a monthly, summer webcast series in 2021. MCRI provides automation solutions for customers by designing and building turn-key end of line applications, fulfillment solutions, and general material handling automation.
The future of fresh, fast food is in robotics. In the not-so-distant future, robotic food automation systems will line the checkout areas and hallways of our major retailers, food courts, airport terminals, hospitals and universities.
Although consumers eagerly purchase products made through mass customization, they want those items quickly. That need for speed is one of the main reasons why manufacturers often use robots to achieve the consistent pace required to fill orders efficiently and without errors.
The technological change in the automotive industry, among others, is also affecting the Zimmer Group - the automation specialist from Germany is well prepared.
Servo drives have evolved far beyond the basic power amplifiers they once were. They can now be complex pieces of electronic equipment with dozens of additional features to expand upon and improve their motion control capabilities.
Whether it is smart phone manufacturing, car-making or the food and beverage sector, factories around the world are already equipped with robots and other automated technologies. So how much of a threat is the possibility of these robots being hacked?
