In the fall of 2021, COVID-19 was a top concern for more than half of respondents in our September 2021 survey. Today that number is down to 17%, according to our Annual Quality Spending Survey, which surveyed subscribers in September 2022.
The phenomenal rise of collaborative automation systems over the past decade or so has seen collaborative technologies deployed on a growing number of quality control applications. Collaborative automation enables companies of all sizes to improve throughput and reduce cycle times on inspection tasks.
Following the automation of manufacturing processes in industry, the fourth industrial revolution is addressing digital connectivity and communication between manufacturing, but also quality assurance systems, i.e., NDT or NDE systems.
The emergence of autonomous mobile robots (AMR), which can independently transport materials around a facility using built-in Lidar scanners and 3D cameras, can make automating tasks faster, less expensive and easier to deploy overall.
On Demand Automating quality inspection tasks requires systems that are consistent and accurate in environments where millimeters and microns matter. Join Lisa Lanzilotti, North American Manager, Digital Marketing for Universal Robots, and speakers from 3D InfoTech and New Scale Robotics as they discuss the advantages UR cobots have brought to their facilities.
On Demand In the manufacturing sector, businesses persistently face the urgency to adapt to the new innovative changes in technology to keep up with demand and stay competitive. Regardless of the industry, automation continues to transform businesses of all kinds, elevating their bottom line. But did you know that there are costs associated with not deploying automation?
On Demand Production teams are struggling to find employees to keep up with QC inspection requirements, maintain productivity, and control production processes. Collaborative robots have emerged as a leading solution for high-mix, small-batch manufacturers, making automation on the shop floor simple and effective. Join this webinar to learn how QC teams can automate their current processes to alleviate QC bottlenecks, improve real-time process control and collect inspection data for their suppliers.
