Whether you manufacture for business or consumer, people expect nothing but the highest quality. Many companies implement manual processes to improve or maintain product quality, yet even the most stringent manual processes have one major flaw – human error.
Automating manufacturing and production processes removes the unknown and replaces it with certainty… the certainty...
With the continued pressures of output, quality and deadlines to be met, businesses must engage in ‘preventative maintenance’ and improvement at a company level. To compete successfully in today’s manufacturing environment, every part of the business needs to run at maximum efficiency. Having efficient operations is part of that equation and is vital to staying competitive. Companies...
We all know the impact an OH&S incident can cause to a business. The financial cost and lowered staff morale can disrupt the smoothest running facility.
Over the past few decades, the available solutions for increasing workplace safety have multiplied.
Robots have dramatically altered the industrial work environment. Through the use of robots you are able to decrease the likelihood of accidents caused by hazardous, repetitive and demanding tasks, saving workers from multiple...
High production costs translate to lower profits, and even in the most profitable of businesses it makes sense to reduce costs for a better bottom line
Whilst capital costs may be a major influence in the decision to automate, in actual fact automation and robotic solutions can not only decrease costs, they provide dramatic increases in production capabilities through increased speed, reduction of bottle necks and the capability to run 24/7.
Some industries in particular have high labor...

“For years, companies and development engineers around the world have dreamt of a robot that is suitable for industrial applications and feel. KUKA has made this dream come true. A quantum leap!” - Prof. Bruno Siciliano, Professor of Robotics at the University of Naples, Italy. The KUKA LBR iiwa is the first sensitive lightweight robot suitable
TECHNOLOGY Friction stir welding (FSW) is a solid-phase joining process in which a rotating, virtually wear-free welding pin is traversed along the weld path between the workpieces to be joined. The rotation of the tool in the firmly clamped parts to be joined generates frictional heat, which causes the material to plasticize. The subsequent advance
Imagine a day when robots can smell, taste, see, hear and touch. That day is coming sooner than you think. Our five senses–sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell–seem to work autonomously. They are five distinct yet vital tools necessary for interpreting the world around us. In reality, though, our senses work together allowing us to
