How Advances in SLAM Technology Are Expanding Robotics Applications

Simultaneous Location and Mapping (SLAM) technology is at the heart of many of the most recent advances in autonomous robotic capabilities. Well before the earliest robots were constructed, engineers, manufacturers, scientists, science fiction enthusiasts, and the public at large had envisioned them as humanoid machines capable of navigating the world much...

How Automation Is Enabling Semiconductor Industry Growth

The last two years have been tough for chip manufacturers. The pandemic has thrown global supply chain vulnerabilities into sharp relief, and in few places has it been more visible than in the effect of chip shortages on product availability and delivery timelines. These challenges have prompted the high-tech industry to...

Are Cobots Safe? 4 Ways Robotic Technology Ensures Worker Safety

The future of manufacturing relies on workers and robots working safely alongside each other. Since the earliest instances of robotic automation in factories, worker safety has been a top concern in the industry. Robots not only operate at higher speeds than human workers, they also maneuver larger and heavier objects. Without...

4 Ways Automated Packaging Can Transform Logistics

Advanced robotics and leading-edge software are finding creative efficiencies in storage, packaging, and distribution. Automated packaging solutions have a host of benefits for any manufacturing business. But the material handling capabilities of robotic technology and leading-edge automation software aren’t limited to packing items in containers. There’s more to getting your products...

How Automation Is Advancing Industrial-Scale 3D Printing

Additive manufacturing is achieving its potential with the help of existing automation technologies.   Additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing, has the potential to be a massively disruptive technology. The ability to use a single machine to produce virtually any design seems, at first glance, fundamentally incompatible with traditional large-scale...

How Warehouse Automation Increases Supply Chain Resilience

The logistics industry is an ideal application for increased use of autonomous systems. The past two years of the Covid-19 pandemic have had a profound impact across every part of society, often in unexpected ways. In particular, the pandemic exposed weaknesses in supply chain infrastructures that are still being felt today....

8 Ways Automation is Transforming Last-Mile Delivery

Automating last-mile delivery can help the transportation industry overcome the final hurdle. Businesses around the globe pour seemingly endless amounts of energy into optimizing their supply chains, from sourcing and production to order fulfillment. The irony is that, after all this work, the final mile can be logistically the most difficult...

3 Ways Automation Creates a More Ergonomic Work Environment

Factory automation can reduce employee injury by eliminating many of the highest risk scenarios. Every good business owner understands the importance of avoiding injuries among the workforce almost without being told, but preventing them isn’t always a simple task. Some jobs are necessarily more dangerous than others, and even work that...

4 Ways Multi-Functional Robots Save Manufacturing Costs

Robots can engage in multiple functions at a time, allowing for versatile and cost-saving applications. For many years, manufacturing automation has focused on hard-coded systems, where components were moved through a series of stations, each with its own specialized task. Each machine performed a very specific sequence of movements designed to...

5 Advantages of Robots in the Machine Tending Space

Using advanced robotics for material handling in a space already occupied by automated equipment offers numerous benefits to both manufacturers and machine operators. Modern manufacturing has advanced so far in recent decades that almost every factory includes some kind of automation. As automation has become more ubiquitous, the role of human...
