Dynamics of technological changeTechnological innovations are progressing faster than ever. Today's robots are small, agile, and smart and help to bring out the best in people. The World Economic Forum foresees a drastic increase in the use of modern robotics. "Even as technological advancements pose challenges to existing business models and practices, over the coming years, these same dynamics of technological change are set to become the primary drivers of opportunities for new growth", states the World Economic Forum in its recent The Future of Jobs Report.
Robotics provide maximum flexibilityConnectivity plays an important role. All aimed at collecting the right data, even real-time, to make quality analyses that result in continuous operational improvement. Reconfigurable line solutions, like our fully Collaborative Workcells, help manufacturers to quickly respond to change. Collaborative, fixed & mobile robotics allow maximum flexibility for material handling. For instance, Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles (AIV's) can transform rigid production lines into fully available flexible lines that can quickly reconfigure material flows. These collaborative robots operate safely and efficiently alongside humans.
