This blog from AGMA’s Gears Matter blog page is by Peter Yordanov from PWR Pack Ltd. It provides a brief intro to discuss how robotics can take a manufacturing company to a new level.

But you have to ensure that it is the right decision for you as there are various types of robotics and there maybe pros and cons involved in the decision.

The blog details increased efficiency, reduced cost base and improved safety by taking away human error as the key advantages to be gained through robotics.

However, there are several types of robotic manufacturing:-

  • Collaborative robots
  • Autonomous robots
  • Industrial robotic arms

Particular facets of robotic input that are relevant to the gear industry’s future are robotic blacksmithing that saves time on traditional methods; and robots with machine vision that can transform the inspection process.

These key elements are all described in greater depth in the blog here.
