Industry 4.0 is pushing the bounds of the manufacturing industry to deepen its roots in the age of digitalization. With the advent of technologies like AI, machine learning, IoT, and automation, manufacturers are able to reduce costs, optimize workflows, and increase bottom lines. Especially amid the pandemic, a rising number of organizations are placing their stakes on automation technology.
Today, the advances in robotics, specifically, are driving the shift toward versatile automation. Whether it is high- or low-volume manufacturing, robotic systems are being leveraged to automate multiple tasks, including welding, assembly, shipping, material handling, and even packaging.
Moreover, modernized robotic systems no longer require complex programming languages or high-skilled personnel to operate them. A factory floor personnel can simply guide the robots through a sequence of steps, which can be even updated or fine-tuned later on without needing complex coding competency. The integration of machine vision with robotic systems is also paving new paths in the manufacturing automation space. Robots augmented via machine vision technology are being used in the part analysis, facilitating seamless handling of complex surface textures and variations in parts’ appearances and quality control.
