Now with ROS 2 and Python Support, Create 3 provides educators and advanced makers with a reliable, out of the box alternative to costly and labor-intensive robotics kits that require assembly and testing.
According to new research by PWC, it is estimated that by the mid-2030s, up to 30% of all jobs could be automatable. As a result of these transitions, the make-up of workforces and career routes into this industry will also evolve in the coming years.
Those interested in entering the robotics field must be prepared with an understanding of the direction of the industry and the skills to thrive within it. Here, we explore how you can set yourself up for future success within robotics as manufacturing automation grows.
FANUC America and the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Agree to Co-market the Stackability of Their Certifications to Meet the Shortage of Skilled Industrial Robotics and Automation Operators
MSSC offers the added benefit of a nationwide delivery system of some 2900 MSSC-trained instructors and 1800 MSSC-qualified test sites, mostly at high schools and community colleges, and 72 technical field reps, in all 50 states.
The Smart Factory at Wichita (TSF@W) provides a risk-free environment for companies to explore the art of the possible and gain insight into the latest technologies through an immersive, hands-on experience.
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.
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.
Low demand scenarios necessitate a different strategy: tools that can produce more pieces per edge while providing process security. Here, the goal should be fewer production interruptions and the capability to run unmanned production.
One of the most interesting features of this update to the Robotics program is the added module on autonomous robots. Autonomous robots are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the industry, with an increasing number of commercial and industrial applications.
With a clear shift towards more digitally enabled roles and a growing need for more automation and/or robotics across all industries, this requires more skilled people within these environments.
There is no doubt that the robotics industry will keep developing in the upcoming years. But the problem is that this industry is already experiencing serious labor shortages and a lack of talent.
FANUC's new CRX e-learning website offers FREE online tutorials. The CRX is an ideal cobot for everyone - plus we guarantee customers eight years of maintenance-free operation, and the same industrial reliability that FANUC is known for.
Automation technology installed right out of the box is not an immediate path to increased profits - successful integration is key. This article explores the main principles that align the integration of robotic automation and success.
We are working toward the intimate physical integration of humans and robots. One example is robots that assist humans in collaborative physical tasks, like manipulating heavy objects in a warehouse.
PACK EXPO takes place in Las Vegas, NV September 23rd - 25th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
