Automation is an increasingly popular option for high-volume tasks requiring precise results. It minimizes the variability associated with manual tasks. Here are some of the specific benefits of pursuing automated plating.
Can robots help alleviate South Africa’s low-cost housing shortage, and give the local construction industry the boost it needs to get back on the path to profitability?
While most manufacturing companies have begun to explore the next step in automation technology — artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) — a large gap exists between where they want their organizations to be with AI technology and where they are.
Advances in technology over the years have led to a wide range of innovations for people with disabilities. These include quality of life inventions for people with mobility issues as well as speech impairments and even common color blindness.
ROEQ has launched two new top modules and accompanying accessories designed to boost the payload and lifting capabilities of autonomous mobile robots from Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR). The new ROEQ TMS-C1500 allows MiR AMRs to transport up to 1500 kg for the first time.
IoT and mobile app development are two such prospects that industry analysts believe can reshape our lives in significant ways. Collectively, these technologies are expected to dominate the future and bring a never-seen change in enterprises across the niches.
Today’s industrial robot market is vast and diverse, featuring a broad range of different machines to fit various applications. One intriguing robotics subset that’s grown in popularity recently is miniature robots.
As manufacturing sectors of all kinds struggle with a growing labor gap, these collaborative grip designs can help streamline facility workflows, reducing the labor necessary to complete tasks while keeping the facility flexible and adaptable.
There are concerns regarding the use of fully autonomous security robots which may get in the way of bringing them to market. Whether those concerns are legitimate or not may impact how quickly robotics will be adopted for security purposes.
The turning of the lead screw transfers the motor power to the spring. It presses from the lower belt on the upper belt, supports the upper body and relieves the lumbar spine.
Insurance can generate high costs, with general liability alone costing businesses a median of $500 a year. If robots can reduce premiums and claims, it would make a strong argument in their favor.
Like any mechanism, robots can shed particles from belts, gasses from hoses and dust particles from the movement of the end effectors. It is this particle disbursement that can be the critical issue for clean room robotics.
Modern transportation wouldn’t be the same without robots, and the future will only serve to solidify this. Here’s how robots are pushing the transportation industry forward and where they could go from here.
Automated packaging solutions can streamline almost any business’s operations, providing a potential competitive edge and benefits like reduced waste or lower labor needs.
In May 2021, Ford opened the doors of its new Robotics Building as part of the University of Michigan. This massive structure is four stories tall and covers 134,000 square feet.
