How Do Automated Guided Vehicles Improve Manufacturing?
The manufacturing industry is no stranger to automation. Until recently, however, most has been in the form of stationary robotics. The recent rise of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) promises to bring robots’ advantages to other workflows. As a result, more manufacturers are considering the benefits of AGVs.
What Is Manufacturing-as-a-Service and Why Is It Important?
The future of manufacturing — and probably every other industry — is looking more communal and collaborative by the day. Nothing demonstrates this better than the rise of manufacturing-as-a-service (MaaS). Everybody knows that it takes just one good idea to change the world. Yet, not everyone has the capital to get their idea off the ground all by themselves.
What Unique Benefits Does AI Bring to Cobot Performance?
Cobots have significantly changed the industrial landscape by allowing robots and humans to work closely without putting people in danger. It wasn’t long ago that the only way to work with robots was to keep the machines behind safety cages.
Identify specific goals and take time to decide on the right strategy – whether it involves emerging technology, organizational or logistical improvements, or process changes – and then measure the results versus the targets.
Why Does Smart Manufacturing Need to Leverage Real-Time Data?
Data has quickly become one of the most valuable resources that a business can have. For manufacturers, this is especially true once they’ve adopted smart technology — like IoT-powered factory sensors and smart robots.
