Horosys was able to standardize, add flexibility and optimize the cost of the Smart Micro Factory using the world's smallest and most precise industrial robot.
Almost all tasks that previously had to be carried out by hand at Zimm are now performed fully au-tomatically by a KR QUANTEC and a KR AGILUS from KUKA. The five-axis milling machine is supplied with raw material via a lift system.
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.
The future of fresh, fast food is in robotics. In the not-so-distant future, robotic food automation systems will line the checkout areas and hallways of our major retailers, food courts, airport terminals, hospitals and universities.
Although consumers eagerly purchase products made through mass customization, they want those items quickly. That need for speed is one of the main reasons why manufacturers often use robots to achieve the consistent pace required to fill orders efficiently and without errors.
The technological change in the automotive industry, among others, is also affecting the Zimmer Group - the automation specialist from Germany is well prepared.
Servo drives have evolved far beyond the basic power amplifiers they once were. They can now be complex pieces of electronic equipment with dozens of additional features to expand upon and improve their motion control capabilities.
Whether it is smart phone manufacturing, car-making or the food and beverage sector, factories around the world are already equipped with robots and other automated technologies. So how much of a threat is the possibility of these robots being hacked?
The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is helping to accelerate the field of soft robotics by sharing the design source files and full build instruction for its innovative domestic robot hands.
As automation becomes more pervasive in manufacturing, Flex's François Barbier discusses the positive impact robots and other advanced technology solutions have on their human counterparts.
They move like snakes and reach places that are too narrow or dangerous for humans. The robust robotic arms of the Tokyo-based company HiBot take inspection, maintenance and repair to new levels.
As proved in 2020, manufacturing, distribution, and warehousing organizations that adapt quickly to evolving conditions survive and thrive. Now, planning for Black Swan events has become a top consideration for global supply chain companies.
New developments in robotics - including smart robotics, collaborative automation, and similar technology - may be essential for processors handling these modern challenges.
"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.
When you sell a robot, the amount of additional required pneumatic components, sensing products, vision inspection systems and machine safety products can cost as much or more than the robot itself. Every robot sold has an exponential economic ripple effect.
