Wooden wind-up dolls appeared in Japan as early as the 17th century.  Japan’s interest in robots has continued ever since.  A machine that wore a kimono and served tea is especially famous, as it is considered one of the world’s first robots.  It carried a bowl of tea on a tray to a guest, waited until the guest replaced the bowl, and then returned to the host.
As technology progresses, rising labor costs and increased competition demand the need for automation.  However, several important factors must be considered before automating a factory or assembly process. The return on investment should be the first factor to consider when automating a new or current process.
Since its commencement in 1926, Toyota has expanded its business domains to include textile machinery, automobiles, material handling equipment, electronics, and logistics solutions.  To get there, Toyota adopted the concept of “lean manufacturing,” which emphasizes increasing value while decreasing waste.  The customer determines what is valuable, while waste is defined as overproduction, waiting, defective parts, etc.
Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing refers to computer software that is used to both design and manufacture products.  CAD/CAM applications are used for both designing a product and programming manufacturing processes like machining.  The CAD software creates models and assemblies that are used by the CAM portion to generate tool paths that drive the machines to turn the designs into physical parts.
To stay relevant in an ever-changing world, robotics companies must compete with each other by continually pushing the envelope.  New ideas and new technologies promise success for worldwide robot companies. Industrial robot companies ensure that their robots are used to positively impact processes and applications.  The KUKA robot group is one of the leading suppliers and manufacturers of robotic systems worldwide.
Five elements contribute to increased shop floor efficiency.  As efficiency increases, manufacturers are able to compete with low-cost producers.  Cutting-edge automation systems are the solution manufacturers are turning to. The first element is robot milling techniques.  Robots are precise and accurate, which means that robotic milling is well suited for robotic rapid prototyping applications.  It is also useful for machining softer materials, like aluminum.
Braintech is a vision-guided robotic application supplier with a lot of big names on its client list.  It develops, supplies, and supports machine vision guidance systems for robots.  Its principal product, eVisionFactory, is software used in the design, development, operation, and support of vision guided robotic systems.
Robots make industries, companies, and manufacturers more efficient.  By increasing productivity and decreasing downtime, robotic automation is an excellent way to improve efficiency for any industry imaginable. Robots have improved the efficiency of Iowa dairies.  Robots milk dairy herds every day:  the cows actually get in line at entry gates for their turn with the robot.
The use of robotics will continue to increase in the pharmaceutical industry because of its efficiency, high speed, and reduction in errors as compared with manual workers.  Further, robots can meet the demand for complying with strict hygiene regulations.  Robot automation ensures reduced patient waiting times for outpatients and discharge patients and timely stock deliveries.
It is no secret that business processes in industries are evolving.  Advancing technology, an emphasis on collaboration, and the possibilities that robotic automation offer are contributing to the next wave of business process modernization. New business process services are emerging that integrate human process work with collaboration and automation of smart robots.
