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.
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.
The established companies in the global industrial logistics robots market are Fanuc, Krones, Schaffer, IMA Industries, Denso, ABB, Panasonic, Toshiba, Stabuli, Kawasaki, Pro Mach, Fuji, Clevertech, and MSK Covertech-Group. The primary challenge faced by players in the global industrial logistics robots market is that of training their staff to handle these heavy-duty robots.
Automated 3D Position Detection. 3D vision systems detect the position and shape of an object in three dimensions using specialised cameras and lasers. They determine the starting point, overall length and rotation of a component, and transmit this data to industrial robots for fast and efficient handling. 3D vision systems enable the automated, reliable handling of different sized objects.
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.
