Robot workers in the world

South Korea has the highest density of robot workers in the world Written by Rob Smith, Formative Content             publishing  by  the World Economic Forum. Robot workers have increased by 9% in Asia                                                      Image: Ford-India/Reuters/Babu Industrial robots are no longer preserved for a select few companies. And they aren’t so much coming: they have now fully arrived. Between 2015 and 2016, the average number of robot workers globally increased from 66 units per 10,000 human workers to 74. This density shows no signs of slowing according to data from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), that reveals the number of installed industrial robots within the global manufacturing industry in 2016. South Korea had 631 robots per 10,000 human workers, the most of any nation. The […]

Reliable Flexibility at Speed in Robotics

Chieving Reliable Flexibility at Speed in Robotics Order Fulfillment Neocortex Goods to Robot (G2R) Cells — Universal Logic Supply chains are under intense pressure to move materials at higher speeds to accommodate customer expectations of timely product availability. Automating the handling of diverse SKUs in e-commerce order fulfillment requires human-like flexibility at high speeds. High-speed robots are better than humans at maintaining fast cycle times consistently. On average, humans can handle 600 products per hour (pick and place), if they are under ~10 pounds. Industrial robots can cycle 700 to 1400 per hour with peaks to 27 per minute (1600/hour) with payloads under 20 pounds. Collaborative robots are over 50% slower than industrial robots due to safety requirements. This report examines how the Neocortex Goods to Robot (G2R) Cells, from RBR50 company Universal Logic, provides the speed and capacity of an industrial robot, with the ease of deployment of a collaborative robot.
