Now then, on the official ”White House Blog” there was a posting back on June 24, 2011 by Erin Lindsay titled; ”President Obama Launches Advanced Manufacturing Partnership.” This appeared just after President Obama gave a speech at Carnegie Mellon University. Manufacturing and production are key to any advanced civilization, and we here in the US like to think we are the most advanced civilization of all.
The most commonly used robot designs for industrial use are the articulated, SCARA and gantry types. Predominant type of industrial robots in use is a robot arm, which are very independent. Unimation were pioneers in producing industrial robots. These appliances are designed by connecting communication cables to the Ethernet, FireWire, or serial ports of a computer.
These label applicators can use other accessories like timers of product sensor which are used for the application process delay, a warning beacon works as a visual display for applicator and printer errors, a product sensor that works as an automatic trigger device sending a start signal to the applicator, a foot switch that works as a manual trigger that sends a start signal to the applicator when pressed, and an external winder or re-winder that accommodates many sizes outer diameter rolls of label stock and allows for quick media replacement.
The Washington Post reported that over the last 10 years the United States lost more than a quarter of its manufacturing jobs. Although we are all aware it’s cheaper to manufacture products overseas, Washington Post reporter Peter Whoriskey explains that Asia is producing an ever-increasing workforce armed with engineering doctorates. China and other Asian countries are also flowing millions of dollars into high tech research in order to compete with the tech industry in the United States. For example, over the last 10 years China doubled the number of engineering doctorates awarded.
Automation improves the level of production and competence of certain industries. It is in this regard that industrial robotic systems have been conceptualized. It is true that this system renders much help to operators. The predicament however lies upon the price that goes with it. In industries where modernization has not yet been introduced, learning how to operate the system adds to the burden.
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.
