There are no unimportant or unnecessary parts in an assembly. Each component within a product, be it large or small, simple or complex, has been delegated there by an engineer to perform a specific task.
WARTON, UK—BAE Systems will open a new assembly plant at its manufacturing complex here that will apply cobots, virtual and augmented reality, and other advanced technologies to the assembly of military aircraft.
Manufacturers are turning to collaborative robots in record numbers to solve automation challenges. But what is a collaborative robot, and how can this technology be safely applied to screwdriving processes?
Automation has become easier than ever with collaborative robots. No longer do you need to be a degreed engineer to program robots to handle assembly, screw driving, welding, sanding or inspection tasks. Cobots are user friendly, easy to program and flexible enough to be moved to different areas of your facility.
Robots are an important piece of the Industry 4.0 puzzle. Tomorrow's smart factories will depend on new types of machines, such as collaborative and mobile devices that are interconnected. Artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing and data analytics will also make industrial robots more reliable than ever.
