Automated 3D Position Detection. 3D vision systems detect the position and shape of an object in three dimensions using specialised cameras and lasers. They determine the starting point, overall length and rotation of a component, and transmit this data to industrial robots for fast and efficient handling. 3D vision systems enable the automated, reliable handling of different sized objects.
A new study Industrial Robot: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2015 to 2021. The 2015 study has 1022 pages, 258 tables and figures. Worldwide Industrial Robot markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the automotive early adopter base provides a way for other industries to leverage economies of scale. Industrial Robot infrastructure in one industry makes it easier to extend product sets so that they are more available across all industries, remaking all manufacturing everywhere.
Another feature of KUKA product is that any task related additional applications can be incorporated by configuring the networking of PC controllers. All the products are characterized with high reliability and safety and also feature user friendly control devices, uniformity in the models and consistency in the maintenance. There is a network of well trained system partners worldwide which offers a guaranteed robotic solution to any particular needs or a well tailored complete solution to any of the industrial needs.
NPR Planet Money Correspondent Adam Davidson tackled the issue of manufacturing in the United States by examining the history of manufacturing in one town-Greenvile County, South Carolina. Greenvile used to be a textile manufacturing town where communities were defined by what factory you worked for. The jobs were great for people with little education. It was common for people to drop out of high school in order to start work. Manufacturing jobs in the United States was always a great option for people who might be unable or unwilling to go to college and get a law or business degree. Manufacturing gave a certain sect of the American population a chance at the American Dream. Over the years, as textile manufacturing jobs continued to be outsourced overseas, the factories began to close.
In addition to cost efficiency, high-tech training for certain manufacturing jobs would be very scarce to come by. The automated, hyper-efficient shop floors of modern manufacturing won’t give Trump much room to deliver on his promises to bring back millions of jobs for his blue-collar supporters. Instead of companies investing in robots to give them better returns in the future, they would have to invest in training programs to help accommodate workers that need the training for more complex jobs. Specifically, for more digitalized companies, the margin for investing in training compared to that of robotic costs would be very high, to the point where it wouldn’t even make much sense to invest in job-specific training.
