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

4 novembre 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 octobre 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).

Improve OEE with Artificial Intelligence at the Edge in Food Manufacturing

16 octobre 2019 Implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in food manufacturing is picking up speed. Many F&B companies are realizing that AI presents an opportunity to increase not only the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) – and therefore combine reduced costs with increased productivity – but also to improve the analysis of data to support continuous improvement programs such as reducing waste or process operations variability.

Late-stage customization in pharmaceutical manufacturing

16 octobre 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 octobre 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 octobre 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.

Agile et intelligent : La robotique mobile sur mesure

10 octobre 2019 Un grand groupe automobile allemand réalise des gains d'efficacité et innove pour devenir un leader de la manutention grâce aux robots mobiles LD d'Omron et à un accessoire de convoyeur de cts GmbH.La production automobile et la production en chaîne d'assemblage ont toujours été étroitement liées. L'installation par Henry Ford en 1913 de tapis transporteurs dans ses usines marque la naissance de la voiture en tant que produit de masse. Aujourd'hui, une journée de travail sans chaîne de montage est inconcevable dans les usines BMW. Ce groupe s'appuie sur des moyens de transport et de logistique innovants pour améliorer l'efficacité et la flexibilité, mieux relier les processus de travail et libérer les employés des tâches répétitives et chronophages. C'est ici qu'interviennent les robots mobiles LD d'Omron qui offrent un retour sur investissement particulièrement élevé pour le transport de matériaux. Ces robots mobiles autonomes sont équipés d'une tour de convoyeur ; un dispositif de manutention de charge réglable en hauteur, développé par l'intégrateur de systèmes cts GmbH. L'interaction entre les employés et les robots de transport chez BMW illustre de manière éclatante l'harmonie qui peut régner dans l'usine du futur.

Barcodes: keeping track of product quality

2 octobre 2019 For many years, barcode technology has proved to be an economical and flexible identification technology. It has continued to develop and as a result, 1D and 2D codes (such as Datamatrix) are now used almost universally. Their versatility have made them a popular choice for streamlining many key supply chain processes, including production, logistics and item traceability.

3 Steps to Optimize Operational Efficiency for the Future of Manufacturing

2 octobre 2019 Operational Excellence is required to maximize capital expenditures. But at the same time manufacturers are challenged to move away from traditional high volume, low mix production runs, to more complex high mix, low volume production with consumer demand linked directly with production. How to optimize operational efficiency to be ready for the future of manufacturing?

Artificial Intelligence and the future of manufacturing

16 septembre 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’.

The future of flexible production - combining the power of mobile robots and cobots

19 septembre 2019 Consumer trends are changing and product life cycles are becoming shorter and shorter. As a result, manufacturers increasingly have to accommodate individual customer needs. To remain profitable, they need to have flexible production lines that can cope with rapid product changes, individual modifications and small lot sizes. Collaborative robots can help them to achieve their goals, especially if they can be used in a mobile environment – i.e. combined with mobile robotics.

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

26 septembre 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 septembre 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 septembre 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.
