Flexible automation on production lines enables companies to adapt to the specific needs of each of their products.


When you bring up man­u­fac­tur­ing, any­one over the age of 50 in Ken­tucky may ref­er­ence hemp grow­ing and the man­u­fac­tur­ing of hemp prod­ucts – a large indus­try in the Blue­grass State until hemp was lumped in with its cousin, mar­i­jua­na, as a drug in the 1970s and made ille­gal to grow with­out a per­mit. Since that time, Ken­tucky has had to look at oth­er man­u­fac­tur­ing options, and some­times those options include indus­tri­al robot­ics.

One Louisville, KY com­pa­ny, Sypris Solu­tions, is very diver­si­fied when it comes to its man­u­fac­tur­ing. The com­pa­ny caters not only to the man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try, but also to the trans­porta­tion, aero­space, defense and oil indus­tries. The com­pa­ny man­u­fac­tures elec­tron­ics and oth­er tech­nolo­gies for these sev­er­al dif­fer­ent indus­tries. Com­pa­nies like Sypris Solu­tions can ben­e­fit from robot­ic automa­tion because of the diver­si­ty of their prod­uct lines. In the elec­tron­ics indus­try, prod­ucts change on a faster speed than almost any oth­er indus­try. By using flex­i­ble automa­tion, robots can be pro­grammed and out­fit­ted with vision and touch sen­sors to allow man­u­fac­tur­ers to run dif­fer­ent prod­ucts on the same line, which saves time and money.

Anoth­er Ken­tucky com­pa­ny based in Louisville, Mate­r­i­al Han­dling Sys­tems Inc., con­structs con­vey­or sys­tems for mate­r­i­al han­dling lines. Robots fit into this busi­ness because what bet­ter to con­struct con­vey­or lines than the robots that would be work­ing them? Robots can weld met­al frames in place and cut the tex­tile used for the con­vey­or, as well as put the con­vey­or sys­tem com­po­nents in place. By using robot­ics for these appli­ca­tions, cuts and welds will have an improved qual­i­ty that will enhance the over­all qual­i­ty of the product.
