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.
Growth prospects for the industrial robotics industry depend on market opportunity metrics relative to the different industries. Automotive investment levels globally have remained at historical highs. Increasing usage of robotic automation by non-automotive companies is driving the usage of industrial robot automation to a new level. Increased adoption of industrial robots coupled with a huge push from the industry for collaborative robots, opens opportunities for robotic solutions. In the immediate future industrial robots strengthen the position of every industry, promising more manufacturing efficiency at every level.
This is how cost efficiency plays a significant role in globalization in the economy. When companies have the opportunity to produce products at a cheaper rate by using alternative resources, they find the best solution possible for either the short run or long run. Robots have been the solution to leading a cost-effective economy. The use of robots has had a growing impact on the manufacturing industry for some time now, and continues to innovate our globalized economy.
Using this image, a computer checks the seam’s consistency along its length. It accurately detects imperfections like profile variations and pores, which weaken the joint, and instructs a robotic burner to rework or repair seams if necessary.
