The control platform of the robots is PC based. The PC based controller enables the user to make use all the PC technologies for its tasks. The high end technologies like remote diagnosis, user friendly windows interface, OPC server, field bus, Soft PLC etc are used in the patterns of robots which enables any standard user of robots can handle the robots with ease. This makes Kuka Robotics to have a worldwide recognition to its products and makes KUKA the world leader in the pasture of industrial robot production.
Easier to work with. Robotic automation is much easier to work with than humans. Robots don’t require coaching or ongoing training. Once one Robot is trained to do the work, all other robots immediately learn the same things. Robots don’t require the same supervision as humans and can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without a break.
The vision system is attached to the controller or the brain of the producing operation and usually this system is made up with the sensors and different cameras. Through the association the visualization system sends pictures to the controller or brain and then the brain knows what the present situation of the manufacturing task at every moment. After receiving the pictures and images from the vision system, then the brain of the automation robotic system make a decision about a further step in the manufacturing or producing procedure.
The Obama administration is well aware of the high tech manufacturing competition in China and other Asian countries. In June 2011, President Obama launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, a $500 million effort between the government, universities, and corporate America to invest in new technologies that could create manufacturing jobs in the Untied States.
Most of the manufacturing conducted in the U.S. is high tech manufacturing, such as chemical, semiconductor, petro-chemical, pharmaceutical, among others. To understand the nature of the manufacturing processes requires background information. That’s where a degree in engineering becomes so critical. Spending the time earning an engineering degree is worth it: many engineering jobs in this sector start around $50,000 and rise up to over $100,000.
