The flipside is that offshore manufacturing leads to job losses in the manufacturer’s country of origin, but then this again creates an extra incentive for those workers who have lost jobs to work hard so as to scale the high value jobs which their country has a comparative advantage to produce.
Additional components also make-up these industrial robotic systems. These minor components are regarded small yet very essential in making the system function. One of the secondary features known as the robotic manipulator acts as the mechanical arm thereby functioning in wide range of motions. The manipulator also has another smaller component known as the effector. This element is capable of moving far beyond than the robotic manipulator and is a very flexible component of the system.
One of the major advantages of robots is that they can perform any kind of work if programmed accordingly and they can also work for longer hours without giving them any break. The robots are built in such a way that they can work for many years. This is a long time investment where you can get much of your work done with less cost. The industrial robots economic life span is approximately 12-16 years. The industrial robots have been producing good work and that they have become one of the important parts of the industries.
Robotic process automation refers to the use of software programs to perform tasks that have been previously performed exclusively by humans or at least, thought to be only possible to have been done by humans. These programs, referred to by the moniker ‘bots’, can be programmed to perform a variety of tasks. The so called ‘dumb’ bots can perform simple tasks like controlling and maintaining systems, monitoring levels and other mundane tasks that do not require any decision making and fall within well-defined rules.
Machine vision systems for assembly inspection have a wide range of applications. These include checking vehicle components in the automotive industry, verifying fill levels in blisters, chocolate trays, and powder compacts, and ensuring correct label positioning on boxes.
