Japan is moving towards Neo-Industrial Manufacturing - Formation of Flexible Factory Partner Alliance

It appears Japanese factories, companies are looking beyond the IOT and or IOE; aiming to connect a variety of assets, e.g., machines, data, technologies, people, and organizations, as well as the existing industries and digital technologies, thereby bringing about the creation of new added value and the solutions to societal problems, bringing "Connected Industries" to fruition.

76 Percent of U.S. Workers Do Not Fear Automation, According to Randstad US

It is evident from our research that not only are workers not afraid of losing their jobs to automation, they are more than willing to retrain to leverage the efficiencies and benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics in the workplace

Power to the People: How Humans are Heading Back to the Factory Floor

In response to consumer demand and competitive pressures, product variation is on the rise. That variation changes the manufacturing calculus somewhat, as the required variation and corresponding complexity means that the ability to think critically and independently and adjust to changing circumstances is a priority.

SICK, Inc. - Low-Cost LiDAR: Higher Technology That's Easy to Use

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
