Digitization is transforming every industry, but perhaps none more so than manufacturing and logistics. In detail-oriented industries like these, any technology that promises to improve efficiency, transparency, and consistency is immediately intriguing.
HelMo is capable of navigating with complete autonomy by permanently monitoring its environment with three integrated laser scanners and can perform its tasks either fully automatically or in collaboration with humans.
The issues associated with supply chain visibility can be daunting. Supply chain visibility may have, up until now, seemed like a "good to have" ability in the shipping and distribution of pharmaceutical products.
As consumers and participants in the supply chain demand greater transparency, blockchain has the potential to transform how information about a food product flows from farm to fork to ensure quality and safety by adding greater visibility and efficiency to the process.
Forbes: The key for a successful digital transformation of the existing supply chain, and therewith reaping the full benefits of DSC, lies in developing an orderly process for implementing and integrating the many technologies and capabilities required.
Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern?
Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
