So is manufacturing growing in the United States? President Obama hopes so, especially in the high tech sector. But evidence of high tech manufacturing being a growing industry is still yet to be seen. At this point in time, it’s still cheaper to employ a human to do a task as opposed to investing in a robot. But what happens when it’s cheaper to buy that robot, or ship that job to a plant in China? The future looks bleak once manufacturing robotics become reasonable investments for smaller companies like Standard Motor Products.
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.
Another most important use of the cameras and sensors is to decide the position of the components and separately assembled as they move forward in the manufacturing line. Generally the vision system is not very complicated and complex the system can be used in manufacturing with very short training and education of personnel. ,
Industrial robots promise to replace 70 to 90% of existing manufacturing jobs. People will learn new ways to achieve an economy, to achieve economic development. An economy needs to adjust, to be flexible if you gave pink slips to more than half the labor force.
Manufacturing industries have been making use of robots and automation on a very large scale. Robots have been successful in meeting the requirements of precision, endurance, speed, and reliability. Robots perform all kinds of dangerous and dirty jobs. Robots also handle the manufacturing work which includes material handling (pick and place), welding, packaging, assembling, painting, palletizing, product testing and inspection.
