The automated vertical lift project kicked off in January 2022 and relied heavily on technical assistance from the team at PathGuide to incorporate the automated vertical lift into Latitude.
In order to continue to stay relevant and competitive, manufacturing must embrace technologies like Big Data, AI, AR, and more to help improve processes, increase productivity, and make informed, data-driven decisions. But are manufacturing companies doing so?
Over the next five years, it's estimated that 25% of industrial spending will go toward automation. This spending will impact everything from logistics to retail to auto manufacturing and is expected to help improve several areas, including speed, safety, and product quality.
Manufacturers are adopting AI/ML to increase efficiencies and cut costs. Using AI/ML to monitor and analyze plant operations reveals production chokepoints, potential equipment failures, and areas where automation can streamline operations.
Whilst uptake in smaller manufacturing firms has been slower, those within the sector are slowly starting to see the value that digital twin technology can bring, no matter the size of the business.
CAPTURE 3D makes the fast digitalization of very large parts possible with the ZEISS ATOS LRX accurate 3D scanner engineered for fields such as heavy casting, shipbuilding, aerospace structures, automotive and wind energy.
A suite of automation solutions from FANUC has proved integral to the delivery of an industrial-scale laser cutting cell commissioned by the UK's Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). Constructed by system integrator
This rapidly growing trend of nearshoring is leading to more plants and warehouses being built in the United States, Mexico and Canada, and to more goods moving between these countries. It is also increasing demand for seamless cross-border freight transportation services.
AR allows the industrial sector to gain effectiveness and efficiency while reducing errors and the additional costs generated, but it does not stop there.
Geek+ brings its AMR expertise to premium car manufacturer BMW Brilliance Automotive's vehicle production facility to strengthen digitalization and end-to-end value chain.
In this Q&A interview, Craig Tappe, Sales Engineer at Accumold discusses various aspects of the micro molding process, and discusses why it is important to ensure that when short-listing your preferred suppliers, the correct questions are asked.
Opponents in the build versus buy debate often defend fiercely entrenched positions, making it harder to understand the pros and cons. Here, Martin Hurley at Novotek Ireland, offers three key reasons for purchasing a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) MES.
Whilst MES has established itself with some of the major manufacturers, there's still a large number of businesses that could stand to benefit from the solution but simply don't have enough understanding about the tangible benefits it can bring to their operation.
