Robots in industrial production are capable of performing a wide range of operations, such as handling parts, welding, gluing and measuring. The problem is that the robot must first learn each process step by means of software commands. The programming of a work step is considerably reduced with the KUKA.AppTech software. Similar to a library,
Although industrial robots have long been an important part of production, many people still think of them as expensive and difficult equipment with safety concerns. However, the deployment of industrial robots is becoming increasingly accessible thanks to lower prices and simpler programming, making them faster and easier for small and medium-sized enterprises to deploy and
With rising international wages and increasing transportation costs forcing companies to reconsider the merits of maintaining production facilities overseas, the groundwork has been laid for the offshoring of US manufacturing. An important component of the equation is the newer generation of robots, and the environment in which this shift will occur reflects new economic realities.
Manufacturers are rethinking the merits of keeping industrial operations overseas due to rising wages abroad and rising transportation costs. The current generation of robots is a crucial component of the equation, as the offshoring of US industry is about to take off. Many companies that can be linked to the offshoring wave of the 1980s
