How to Make a Cost-effective Flexible Robotic Solution for Low-volume Production
Too Long; Didn't ReadRobotic automation is a crucial technology in manufacturing nowadays, but it is affordable only for high-volume or high-margin production due to the required high investment, time, big team, high utilisation, etc.
We will talk about an Adaptive robotic cell - a cheap, small, modular cell that can be reconfigured autonomously with multiple process capabilities, reusing equipment to improve investment utilisation. That makes it ideal for short production runs of products that don't share many common operations. We will see the hardware architecture and software package that configures and runs the cell autonomously.
