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.
There was an interesting talk given by Regina Dugan of DARPA on December 14, 2011 for the engineering students and social studies students at MIT titled; ”Just Make It” which of course is a ”take-off” literally on the Nike Brand theme; Just Do It! – in this talk she mentions an aircraft manufacturing company which works without assembly lines and has been able to increase time to build from start to finish by a factor of 2. Each aircraft stays put, the folks working on it move. Okay so, that makes sense, and Rolls Royce and other high-end auto manufacturers use similar techniques, as to many of the hand-crafted high-end specialty cars.
Label applicators allow us to put a quantity of labels into the applicator and it applies these labels to the product. These applicators can be installed easily and offers choices of many accessories. One of the accessories is a choice between a table top stand that allows the applicator to be fixed on an H-Base stand, designed like the letter H allowing the stand to straddle objects.
The industrial robots can be programmed for performing a single function at a time and can only perform that particular function till they are reprogrammed. The cost of a robot is not very huge, but generally the cost of programming the robot is so high that instead of reprogramming it the manufacturers find it more economical to buy a new one for a different task. In simpler terms we can say that usually the cost of the robot is just a fraction of the cost of programming it.
Companies are increasingly deploying industrial logistics robots to enhance their automated processes and achieve a competitive edge. Furthermore, these robots facilitate flexible systems and end-to-end process improvement, which has added to the demand from the global industrial logistics robots market. However, the fact that every logistics robotic system needs customization prior to deployment will restrain the global industrial logistics robots market.
