The main reason for offshore manufacturing is to reduce production costs for a manufacturer who is trying to make more profits by exploiting the comparative advantages that exist in other countries and which are not in his/her country.
As the energy was deflected, or made it through the material all of that heat and energy would make its way into openings in all of these devices. Inside of those devices we could put small spinning wheels, and then use that energy once again, rather than wasting it. We could use that energy to power up the laser itself, the robotic arm, and perhaps the assembly line mechanism. By recapturing and reusing we would indeed be one with the theory and methodology behind Six Sigma manufacturing strategies.
The robotic addition can be of great benefit to companies that requires applying custom product labels in large quantity in product lines. This addition will reduce all the man hours wasted by employees’ hand applying labels at slow speed than an applicator can apply them. This allows employers to use their staff for more important tasks and offers efficient production speed.
Manufacturing plants are frequently long aisles of nothing but robots, no human in sight. Beyond industrial robots that repeat actions, more intelligent robots loaded with sensors, cameras, and intelligent software are able to automate process using controllers to manage action. Use of microprocessors provides a measure of intelligent control over the activity of the robot based on input from the sensors and the cameras.
Pharmaceutical companies use machine vision systems in automated production lines to inspect injection needles, which are unusable if blunt or bent. Multiple cameras photograph needles as they flow through the system on powered conveyors. Sophisticated computer software analyses the captured images to determine needle sharpness and check the contour of the tube. Industrial robots use this information to separate and discard defect needles.
