Five autonomous mobile robots (AMR) MiR1000 have improved productivity, safety and eliminated storage problems within the Florisa plant, a company that operates in the textile segment, with production focused on the dyeing of natural and artificial fibers.
You can't totally count conveyors out, because they'll always have a place. But the truth is, robots are here, and AMRs are changing warehouse operations. While conveyors are effective, their capabilities are also limited.
Because supply chains consume resources on a large scale, they are responsible for a disproportionately large share of the world's carbon emissions.
AI brings efficiency through big data analytics and performance insights on an unprecedented scale. With this power, AI is advancing supply chains for a cleaner, more cost-effective future. Preparing for this future starts with understanding AI implementation in the present.
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.
The World Robotics 2020 Industrial Robots report shows a record 2.7 million industrial robots are operating in factories around the world - and many of those are integrated into larger equipment.
Always more, always faster, always further everything needs to arrive at the right time at the right place - the global goods cycle keeps the economy running and is a challenge for everyone involved.
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.
It is clear to everyone in the supply chain industry that piece-picking technology is an essential core solution that enables predictable and scalable order fulfillment operations, especially during times like these.
The Internet of Robotic Things (IoRT) is a rapidly evolving technology. In just a few decades, industrial robots have become commonplace in factory settings across the world, and they only continue to gain popularity for their productivity and profitability.
The current trend of automation has witnessed the development of new technologies that are capable of providing end-to-end automation for the production of certain processed foods.
Mobile Robots and Autonomous Vehicles: IDTechEx Analysts Discuss How Coronavirus Pushes Logistic Automation up the Agenda
Last week Amazon announced that it planned on hiring 100,000 extra workers to meet the rise in demand for online shopping created by Coronavirus-caused shutdowns and social distancing.
Friction in our supply chain -- delays or quality issues, for example -- directly impacts our bottom line. We're a quickly growing company and we need to be agile enough to take advantage of new opportunities as they arise.
We'll be participating in an on-floor seminar, "Bridging the Labor Gap in your DC" where we'll discuss how robotic solutions can augment your labor force using the latest advances in robotic technology. Booth: #7619
We have developed specialized lifting solutions to solve the problems with repetitive strain injuries of manual handling in most of the areas in a Distribution Center (receiving dock, storage area, picking area, shipping dock). Booth #2602
