How Industry 4.0 has changed the workforce

How Industry 4.0 has changed the workforce
Loud speaker and subwoofer manufacturer, Paradigm Electronics has implemented robots to assist with product polishing. Humans collaborate with the robots but no longer perform the entire time consuming and laborious task themselves. In fact, most jobs have been altered in some way by the introduction of Industry 4.0. Jonathan Wilkins, Marketing Director of EU Automation, explains how job roles are changing with Industry 4.0.

Top tips for choosing a 3D vision system

Top tips for choosing a 3D vision system
With four times as many as colour receptors as humans, the Mantis shrimp has the most impressive eyes in nature. Manufacturers have long relied on human vision for complex picking and assembly processes, but 3D vision systems are beginning to replicate the capability of human vision in robotics. Nigel Smith, Managing Director of Toshiba Machine partner, TM Robotics, gives three rules to live by when choosing a 3D vision system for manufacturing.

Caltech and Disney engineers collaborate on robotics

Caltech and Disney engineers collaborate on robotics
Caltech and Disney Research have entered into a joint research agreement to pioneer robotic control systems and further explore artificial intelligence technologies. The agreement creates a framework that will allow researchers and engineers at Caltech and Disney Research to easily collaborate on projects of mutual interest. The three-year agreement officially began with projects focused on developing robots with new autonomous movement capabilities and improving machine learning for robots on the move.

Robot performs further tank inspection with VT-1 Tank Floor

Robot performs further tank inspection with VT-1 Tank Floor
Newton Labs and Framatome (formerly AREVA NP) have successfully completed a robotic examination of a third filled Condensate Storage Tank (CST) using Phased Array UT and VT-1 Visual Examination at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station. The exam satisfied requirements for license renewal and the NEI 09-14 directive on buried pipes and tanks.

Origami-inspired robot is small but fast

Origami-inspired robot is small but fast
Because of their high precision and speed, Delta robots are deployed in many industrial processes, including pick-and-place assemblies, machining, welding and food packaging. Starting with the first version developed by Reymond Clavel for a chocolate factory to quickly place chocolate pralines in their packages, Delta robots use three individually controlled and lightweight arms that guide a platform to move fast and accurately in three directions.

Year of Engineering emphasises on digitalisation and robotics

Year of Engineering emphasises on digitalisation and robotics
This year is expected to bring a lot of exciting things to industry, but The Government’s ‘Year of Engineering’ Campaign, which has launched this week is certainly high up on the list. It includes a number of activities which recognise the role of digital and robotics as a crucial part of the portfolio of skills for engineering.

Robotics increasingly integral to Industry 4.0 success

Robotics increasingly integral to Industry 4.0 success
Instead of me facing you with another rhetorical question about, what technology we will see in 2018, or how digitalisation is all anyone wants to talk about, let me tell you about what I learnt from semiconductor company Infineon. The big focus for the company here is robotics, and more importantly; how does robotics translate into business opportunities? Well first of all the question is not necessarily how, but why? Infineon is a company that has four types of lead applications so why is robotics such an important focus?

Drone technology benefits from motion plastics

Drone technology benefits from motion plastics
  The FitoStinger drone was developed for effective pest control as it can often be difficult, especially if surrounding areas must not be affected. The lightweight design is partly attributed to motion plastics from igus that include the extremely light drylin linear guide made of carbon.

Agriculture 4.0: farming is going digital

Agriculture 4.0: farming is going digital
Digitisation and networking in agriculture are the modern expression of ideals that are understood as 'holistic thinking'. Thinking in terms of process chains has always been a guarantee of success in the agricultural sector. For large parts of the agricultural industry, digitisation is giving rise to extended areas of responsibility and also altered fields of activity.
