Robotic Automation Propels Manufacturing Transformation


August, 2015

From traditional to electronics manufacturing, many
companies are eager to introduce robots to lower labor
demand which may drastically shift based on orders. With
a production line requiring tens to hundreds of workers
for daily operations, manufactures see automated
production and man-machine collaboration as ways to
secure productivity and to increase production efficiency.
A robotic production line involves aspects more than
robots. Issues like system integration, machine-tomachine
communication, and information integration
must be thoroughly considered to equip a robotic
production line with capabilities of actuation controls,
sensing, data processing, and operational intelligence as
much as smart manufacturing based on IoT, smart robots
and cyber-physical systems, and big data technologies.
