The AI, edge and cloud computing relationship

  Industrial manufacturers need to carefully evaluate both options before deciding between the two, taking into account the recent arrival of new solutions involving artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). As a new and evolving solution, all too often companies can be eager to start implementing and using AI without being fully aware of […]

Machine learning is how many industrial applications we can name for it

  Machine learning is not a device you can plug into a production line and make the production line operate better than it did before. Factory automation plants utilize machine learning’s ability to understand and build mathematical models. These models, over time, learn to perform tasks on their own as opposed to being programmed to […]

Zero Down Time IoT solution can be applied to any of FANUC’s robotic arms and their peripherals

  Manufacturers can use the ZDT portal to check robot status inside the factory, as well as when they are traveling. To help with the rest of the automation in a factory, later this year the robotics company will make available FANUC’s Intelligent Edge Link and Drive (FIELD) system, a free and open-source platform for […]

Researchers develop soft actuators that will provide robots with soft touch

  Fabricated with both hard and soft materials, the actuators are capable of complex movements that the researchers see as promising for robots that will be able to handle ‘delicate’ objects as well as work with humans. Extremely modern robots made from metamaterials that are not only flexible but also offer ‘unprecedented functionalities.’   Click […]

The number of robots deployed worldwide to grow nearly 10-fold over by 2030

  Industrial robots could displace up to 20 million manufacturing jobs over the next decade-plus. The number of robots deployed worldwide would climb from more than 2 million currently to 20 million by 2030 — enough to replace 8.5 percent of the global manufacturing workforce. The analysis said that of those estimated 20 million, 14 […]

What exactly do analysts and automation experts mean when they use the word “robot”?

  How can different types of robots improve an actual manufacturing operation? If you are a smaller manufacturer who is curious about robots but has never worked with them, it may be difficult to envision how robots might fit in to your facility. Here’s an overview of four types of industrial robots that every manufacturer […]

Determining the ROI of an Investment in Robots

  There is no single robotic solution for every manufacturing application and environment. Each operation must identify their specific pain points to reap real benefits from automation. But many organizations face common problems. To that end, here are four potential ways that robots can often benefit SMMs. Better Quality Control A Safer Work Environment Reshoring […]

Cobots-assist-humans

Cobots have been developed to assist humans

  As the fourth industrial revolution, known by some as Industry 4.0, continues to transform the supply chain, companies must aim to increase productivity and improve estate utilisation by integrating robotics and automation, without deliberately neglecting employees. MIT Researchers found that robot-human teams were 85% more productive than either alone.   Click here to read […]
