Competitive pressures and dynamic market demands have made the automotive industry the most automated in the world. But today, it's about more than just fast, repetitive, high-volume production. Collaborative robots are a fast-growing trend with automotive OEMs and Tier suppliers due to their easy setup, quick integration and safe operation.
This white paper takes an in-depth look at machine tending operations within today’s factories, and how cobots help machine shops free up valuable personnel, increase capacity while improving quality, and breathe new life into idle equipment.
An education program developed by Universal Robots to teach people how to program and implement collaborative robots has been accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) and is now authorized to issue continuing education units.
Headquartered in Columbus, IN, Cummins Inc. manufactures engines, generators, and components for trucks and tractors, such as turbochargers, exhaust systems and filtration products. Cummins engines can be found in trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, construction and agricultural equipment, military vehicles, and even large boats. The company tallied $23.6 billion in sales in 2019.
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.
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.
On Demand Whether making prototypes, molds, custom tooling or just doing small production runs, collaborative robots lead the way to quickly and affordably automate 3D printers. This webinar will help guide those seeking to learn how collaborative robots are being used in additive manufacturing.
