4 Questions that Determine Energy Consumption of your Production Plant

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Production Optimization, Simple Solutions, Sustainable Manufacturing

In many production processes, energy is a significant cost. Hence, saving energy leads to reduced production costs. It also makes production system more sustainable. To identify most suitable energy saving measures for your production plant, you need to know how much, where, when and why energy is used. How much? The amount of energy consumed can be measured at the place where all […]

Industrial Robotics or the Journey from the Tool to the Partner

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Automated Future, Humane Automation, Production Optimization

Historically, humans have seen robots as tools. For decades robots have performed tasks on command and have been limited in their freedom of action, showed low performance whenever they were not designed for the task and relied on humans whenever a problem or an unforeseen scenario occurred. However, with recent technological advancements we have begun […]
