A comprehensive approach to automation requires networking - not just between the individual components. Because for something really ground-breaking to emerge, already the development must be aligned.
If automation was as simple as getting a loan, buying the system, and making more money, every business in the country would be automated. Unfortunately, there are some large roadblocks standing between small businesses and complete optimization of their production lines.
"Robotics-as-a-service" is a model in which customers purchase automation on an "as-needed" basis. This could be monthly pricing or usage-based pricing. Upfront costs are typically negligible or non-existent.
Ricoh approached Evershed Robotics initially, who suggested using a combination of Toshiba Machine TH650 SCARA robots and a Toshiba Machine Cartesian robot to work with their six bowl feeders and a rotary index table.
Automation is making conveyors a more integral component because of the contributions they're making to the overall efficiency and productivity of today's processing and packaging lines.
Which automakers are best poised to succeed in the future of mobility? That's the question prompting the appearance of many of the world's top automotive manufacturers - including Ford, Honda and BMW - at major technology shows like CES 2020 in Las Vegas.
Rapid proliferation of industry 4.0 technologies is likely to drive SCADA market. The market is expected to witness a robust growth rate on account of increasing adoption of automation technologies by manufacturing, utility, and oil & gas industries.
Buying a new robot is a considerable investment for any business owner. Collaborative robots have been widely marketed as a cheaper alternative to industrial robots, but what's the catch?
Steven Wyatt, IFR Vice President, presented an outlook by regions, markets and key challenges at the AUTOMATE 2019 in Chicago.

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
