It is flexibility – in terms of technologies, methods and partnerships – that is the critical success factor for Robot Nordic, a systems integrator and developer of custom robotics and automation solutions based in the heart of the Danish robotics cluster in Odense.
The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute’s Suzy Teele recently interviewed Yaskawa Motoman ‘s Roger Christian about the strategic advantages of partnering with ARM, and how the relationship benefits Yaskawa and advances the role of robotics in manufacturing.
For small-to-medium manufacturers (SMMs), especially those with high-mix, low-volume production loads, collaborative robots provide many benefits over traditional industrial robots for certain tasks. But deploying cobots can be challenging. Thankfully, the US’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) can help.
This webinar was presented on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 Please click below to watch on demand Thanks to collaborative robots (“cobots”), automation is becoming more attainable for manufacturers of all sizes. Universal Robots, world leader in collaborative robots, offers significant productivity and safety advantages, even for small operations. The easy-to-use design of cobots empowers operators…
The jobs robots create demand a high skill level, so to build a sustainable workforce companies must develop a strategy for upskilling their current workers, and also have plans in place for training future employees.
The inefficiencies plaguing the manufacturing industry stem from technological limitations of automation. When those technological barriers are overcome, it is possible to unlock productivity gains with an optimal combination of humans and machines.
Building on the success of the inaugural series, the RoboBusiness Direct Fall program will once again have robotics industry experts addressing critical robotics business development issues through an integrated series of online presentations and continuing media coverage and analysis.
AMR developer Waypoint Robotics and fulfillment and distribution services provider Advanced Handling Systems (AHS) recently announced new systems integrator partnership. Tim McCabe, Director of Business Development for Waypoint Robotics, and Dave Tavel, EVP for AHS, discuss what led to the alliance and the capabilities AMRs provide for fulfillment and distribution operations.
The emergence and rapid proliferation of collaborative robots have resulted in the proliferation of a new class of ‘lean’ integrators specially adapted to the needs of SMEs who wish to leverage automation. The lean integrator has evolved precisely to deliver robot installations that yield higher productivity at a lower price point, and that can be installed in a fraction of the time of a traditional robot work cell.
Boston Dynamics’ VP of Business Development and Universal Robots’ CEO Jürgen von Hollen are featured in this episode of The Robot Report Podcast.
In 2019, overall robot market revenues experienced negative growth for the first time in many years affected by the global manufacturing downturn and reduced demand in major end industries such as automotive and electronics. However, the collaborative robot market still maintains a high growth rate of more than 30% (32.1% in revenue term and 31.3%…
