This white paper provides information on: • Automation 3.0: History of robotics • Different types of robot technologies • Benefits and limitations of each technology • Factors to consider in selecting the right robot for the job
To start, this whitepaper identifies all of the most common programmable tasks and how you can begin mobilizing your automated workforce at the lowest cost and highest productivity.
As modern robotics and automated machines perform more tasks than ever, bearings that enable complex motion and effective load handling are making it all possible. For example, many robots and cobots incorporate articulating arms to move, position or rotate heavy objects or perform routine tasks even as design sizes shrink. This white paper will describe how IKO crossed roller bearings enable precise, repeatable motion and can handle large axial, radial and moment loads simultaneously to perform complex tasks for a variety of robot types, even within tight spaces.
One of the greatest myths surrounding automation is that bringing in robotics is going to inhibit jobs and opportunities for employees. This white paper dispels this misconception by demonstrating how robotics create job evolution, not elimination. Download the white paper and get valuable insight into how automation creates jobs, how accessible automation has become, and the types of job growth and demand involving automation

Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) is a different automation model from the traditional capital purchase approach. Financial leaders will want to read this deep dive whitepaper to learn how RaaS is expensed as incurred and what the other positive financial benefits include.
90% of U.S. manufacturers have zero robots and are unaware of the total cost of owning automation. This exclusive whitepaper breaks down the details and provides industry-backed methods for cutting costs.
Developing innovative robots is a challenging but rewarding field that requires a combination of technical skills and creative ideas. The goal of these designs is to create robots that are able to perform tasks efficiently and effectively, with a focus on increasing productivity and reducing costs. We know that by designing and engineering robots that are able to adapt to changing environments and to handle complex tasks, we can stay ahead of the curve and remain competitive. But robot development comes with its own set of challenges; limited budgets, lack of manufacturing capabilities, teams that aren’t large enough to spare time for innovation, and so on. How can robotics startups overcome these challenges and stay ahead of the competition?
Robotics is moving from an opportunity in business and facility operations to a necessity in many industries. As a result, organizations must plan for multi-vendor robots, intelligent traffic flows, storage, and more.
Advances in AI and deep machine learning have ushered in incredible potential for ground-based, aerial, and maritime robotics. Robotics is moving from an opportunity in business and facility operations to a necessity in many industries. As a result, organizations must plan for multi-vendor robots, intelligent traffic flows, storage, and more.

Designed to decrease the apprehension and intimidation some manufacturers might face during their initial foray into robotic automation, the new KUKA Robot Guide makes the process fast and easy to apply the right automation to specific application needs. In three easy steps, users are presented with KUKA robot options based on their industry, application and environment for the perfect automation match.
As the existing robotic automation could only handle boxes of consistent size and with certain conditions, there was a limit to realize full automation in reality. It stems from the fact that the robot could not take boxes of irregular sizes. Considering these limits, CMES offers advanced automation to reach new levels of output and performance.
