Robotics: Driving the Next Generation Industrial RevolutionBy CIOAdvisor Apac | Wednesday, September 11, 2019
FREMONT, CA: Is Robotics turning into an asset for manufacturers? With huge potential to transform the way businesses operate their manufacturing lines, quick and versatile manufacturing robots of today are standing as key eliminators of redundancy, and inaccuracy. Vision technology, along with cognitive technology, is rapidly becoming a standard, decreasing the need for costly installation and tooling, and force sensing allows a robot to adapt when there is an installation issue. Here are a few crucial revolutions brought to the manufacturing industry by robotics and automation.
Processing Raw Materials
Robots can manage hazardous chemicals, radioactive substances, and several other components readily without the hazard faced by humans. Workers can enter programs with robotics to guarantee accurate handling owing to human error without any mishaps. Also, robots can stop products stored in warehouses from being damaged. That's because provided they are correctly programmed, they are less probable to mishandle devices. Human-worker mishandling has cost a pretty penny in the past to employers and factory owners. These expenses are likely to go far down with robotics.
Safety at Work Space
One specific area of robotics that has come to the fore in the latest years is the concept of cobots which are intended to work with people securely. Small and lightweight cobots provide an entry point for businesses wishing to embrace robot systems, as they are much cheaper and simpler to program than traditional industrial robots. By performing more hazardous duties and avoiding injury, cobots can assist build safer operating environments. Machine Learning (ML) algorithms enhance factory robots' capabilities so that they can better communicate with and take human directions.
Successful implementation of these changing techniques will improve efficiency considerably for businesses and can be a competitive advantage and differentiator. Some of the benefits will come from labour replacement, but automation also can increase productivity, increase throughput, improve projections, results, precision, optimization, and allow new alternatives and opportunities to be discovered. In Europe and elsewhere, a variety of automation techniques are already creating real value.
Industrial automation is dominant in nations with powerful production traditions. Manufacturing and service robots will have a greater market share in nations with powerful service industries. The industrial robot density mainly determines the size of manufacturing industries in a nation. The New York Times reports that Central and Eastern Europe, have robust manufacturing sectors supported by comparatively low salaries. The European robotics sector would profit from consistent European regulation as it would generate transparent and predictable circumstances under which businesses would be able to develop new apps and test their business models at a European level. It is sure that the developments in robotics and automation today will have a profound impact on lives and livelihoods, similar to a fresh Industrial Revolution.
