Why was she giving this talk? Simple; we beat the German’s in WWII due to our manufacturing abilities. Today, China can easily out produce us, so are we going to make the same mistake as the Germans did in WWII, in a future war with an industrial power that can out produce us? Well, are we? How can you say the answer is yes or no; you can’t and that’s one more reason manufacturing is so vital to US interests, on top of the importance of jobs, trade flows, and GDP growth. ”A nation lives well, when it produces well,” she reminds us, and quoted Adam Smith’s warning about not relying on military resources to make our defense systems.
The Washington Post reported that over the last 10 years the United States lost more than a quarter of its manufacturing jobs. Although we are all aware it’s cheaper to manufacture products overseas, Washington Post reporter Peter Whoriskey explains that Asia is producing an ever-increasing workforce armed with engineering doctorates. China and other Asian countries are also flowing millions of dollars into high tech research in order to compete with the tech industry in the United States. For example, over the last 10 years China doubled the number of engineering doctorates awarded.
ABB’s small IRB 120 multipurpose industrial robot weighs 25kg and can handle a payload of 3kg (4kg for vertical wrist) with a reach of 580mm. It is a cost-effective and reliable choice for generating high production outputs in return for low investment. A white finish Clean Room ISO 5 (Class 100) version, certified by IPA, is available.
These are most commonly used in Japan, Western Europe and the United States. Some tasks robots perform include loading, casting, drilling, glass making, grinding, heat treatments, monitoring radiation, etc. In modern times, due to rise in complexities and demand for higher and competent productivity, industrial robots are gaining popularity. The use of robots has helped industrial development to grow in leaps and bounds, well beyond expectations.
