EU Automation publishes new guide: How to Get Robotics Right - Avoiding the Common Costly Mistakes of Automation Adoption
The useful guide provides engineers with valuable information about how to introduce automation into manufacturing practices successfully, so they can realise the full potential of robotics
As industries adopt data-driven operations, there is increased demand for advanced technologies. These technologies maximize the potential and returns on investment in industrial automation systems.
Automation is revolutionizing virtually every industry today, including cold chain warehousing. Warehousing companies can get a valuable edge over their competitors by implementing smart automation strategies.
The topic of retrofitting, i.e., the modernization of machines and systems into the digital age, is also an important trend in terms of sustainability, energy saving and resource optimization that we are also serving.
IoT and mobile app development are two such prospects that industry analysts believe can reshape our lives in significant ways. Collectively, these technologies are expected to dominate the future and bring a never-seen change in enterprises across the niches.
Logistics is a constant race to deliver at fast speeds while maintaining a standard of impeccable accuracy at the lowest possible cost. The rise of intense competition makes next-generation applications essential for becoming a trendsetter in this industry.
When digital information transforms into precise physical motion, previously infeasible use cases suddenly become possible. This improvement delivered Industry 4.0 to applications such as advanced robotics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT),.
Clem Robertson, CEO and Founder of R4DAR Technologies explains how the global pandemic has fast-forwarded demand for automated transport and last mile delivery systems so life can return to the "new normal" and the country can be better prepared for future pandemics.
How can industrial equipment companies keep pace with the push to economize and modernize, to be more data-centric, and to provide safety and security in the face of constant innovation?
When most think of sustainability in business, the concept of green processes is not always top of mind. However, incorporating technology, and more specifically robotics and cloud connected devices, creates a secondary sustainability effect that is markedly more streamlined
Zimmer Group has consistently and successfully oriented their mechatronic component portfolio towards Industry 4.0. These range from electric mid-class grippers for standard applications to motor spindles for chipping wood, plastic and metal, to high end products.
Solving the challenge of data interoperability exists for the IT function in many situations. For the connected factory this means enabling the flow of information between machines, which in the past has been easier said than done.
Because kinetic mesh is a mobile network, radios can go on any fixed or mobile asset on a manufacturing floor and still provide constant communications.
With the accelerating growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is increasingly important to identify and implement safety-related systems for smart grids, connected vehicles, robotics, industrial control systems, smart factories, and more.
Cobots and mobile robots are both new technologies that are still being developed and industry is just now learning how to implement them. Further, these examples represent new applications that use robotics in applications where they have never been used before.

Modular, collaborative, and flexible: the "Handling-to-Welding" robotic welding cell joins parts of different geometries and materials. The task is carried out by two robots - the handling robot positions the workpieces, the second robot performs the welding. Depending on the cell configuration, lock gates are available for the inward and outward transport of parts. Furthermore, various positioners, a TCP measurement system, a torch cleaning system, a gripper station, and a contact tip change system are also possible.
