Three pillars of successful cobot deployment: security, quality and flexibility from a single source

4 november 2019 The use of collaborative robots is expected to increase rapidly in the next years to meet the needs of flexible production lines. To ensure that manufacturing layouts can be easily adapted to changing customer requirements, we recommend teaming up mobile robots and cobots. In addition, companies must consider integrated software apps and vision technology, as well as ensure support and risk assessment.

Smart machines: laying the golden egg?

16 oktober 2019 Greater manufacturing efficiency: it’s the golden egg we’re all looking for. But it’s getting increasingly hard to find. The solution could be smarter automation, which involves lots and lots of data (‘big data’) and data collection and data-driven modelling. The smart machine then uses the models to automatically adjust its own behaviour (i.e. machine learning).

Late-stage customization in pharmaceutical manufacturing

16 oktober 2019 As a result of serialization legislation, pharmaceutical manufacturers must now ensure that labels printed at a late stage contain all of the data required for compliance. This includes customizing product labels for certain markets, customers or products by adding variable data to labels or packaging. This avoids the need to stock individual packaging materials for each variant.

Top tips for choosing a mobile robot

16 oktober 2019 In an age of short product lifecycles and an increasing demand for customised solutions, if you’re a manufacturer, you need to be very agile to remain competitive. For instance, you might need to make products down to a lot size of one as simply and cost-efficiently as in mass production; or to change or update your production line at short notice. One key solution is a greater co-operation between people and machinery, leading to improved efficiency and more flexibility in the design of the production line.

Autonomous bin picking with a collaborative mobile robot

16 oktober 2019 Our TM collaborative robot provides a unique solution to easily automate applications such as picking and packing that, traditionally performed by humans, have been challenging to automate. As part of the TM series launch, we also released a mobile-compatible model, which seamlessly integrates into Omron’s LD series autonomous mobile robot. Combined with a 3D vision camera mounted directly onto the collaborative robot, this enables for example e-commerce companies to automate more complex tasks. This includes pick and place of various items onto a tray or container, as well as connecting production processes with the autonomous mobile robots for flexible manufacturing and materials handling.

Flexibel en slim: mobiele robotica op maat

10 oktober 2019 Een groot Duits automotive-concern optimaliseert efficiëntie en innovatie op het gebied van materiaalverwerking met LD mobiele robots van Omron en een transportbandhulpstuk van cts GmbH.De productie van auto's en assemblagelijnproductie zijn altijd nauw verbonden geweest. Pas toen Henry Ford in 1913 met transportbanden begon te werken in zijn fabrieken, kon de auto als massaproduct de wereld veroveren. Tegenwoord is een werkdag zonder assemblagelijnen ondenkbaar in de BMW-fabrieken. Het concern vertrouwt op innovatieve transport- en logistiektoepassingen om de efficiëntie en flexibiliteit te verhogen, werkprocessen beter op elkaar aan te laten sluiten en werknemers herhalende en tijdrovende taken uit handen te nemen. Voor het materiaaltransport wordt gebruik gemaakt van LD mobiele robots van Omron die een bijzonder hoog rendement op investeringen (ROI) leveren. Deze autonome mobiele robots zijn uitgerust met een transporttoren: een in hoogte verstelbaar lasthanteringsapparaat dat is ontwikkeld door systeemintegrator cts GmbH. De interactie tussen werknemers en transportrobots bij BMW laat duidelijk zien hoe fabrieksharmonie wordt toegepast in de fabriek van de toekomst.

Artificial Intelligence and the future of manufacturing

16 september 2019 The discussion about ‘Artificial Intelligence’ (AI) in manufacturing is now gaining momentum. This is mainly due to the availability of greater processing power and increasing volumes of data (the ‘sensorisation’ of the industry). A key factor that will help manufacturers to gain the maximum benefit from these recent advances is the use of adaptive algorithms. This in turn is a major stepping stone towards the development of ‘the factory of the future’.

What is the effect of Brexit on automation in the UK?

26 september 2019 Currently, workers from the EU have the right to travel and work freely across European borders. However, key statistics of net migration from the Office of National Statistics in the UK, show that net migration to the UK has been significantly reduced since 2016. With the announcement of Brexit, and the ensuing uncertainty around it, UK factories are perhaps no longer a viable destination for European workers.

How smart is your packaging line?

17 september 2019 Industry 4.0 is changing the way in which manufactured goods are produced, through the use of automation and data exchange. By incorporating it into your packaging line, you can start to enjoy a range of benefits, from better data management to improved efficiency. Moving to a modern, flexible and smart line will bring the most benefits, but replacing a complete production line might not be a viable option if you’re operating with tight margins. However, even small changes to your existing facilities can significantly boost your efficiency.

Is your production line ready for inspection?

12 september 2019 Quality inspections are a critical requirement for all manufacturing and packaging lines. Being able to identify defective products before they are shipped to customers can bring significant savings in both time and money. It prevents costly product recalls, wasted production and potentially expensive legal costs.For perishable products – from food to pharmaceuticals – quality inspection of the packaging is also vital. An unreadable barcode or a wrong expiry date could lead to perfectly good products being discarded. And increasingly strict legislation is making clear marking a top priority for all types of products.
