Strategic Steps for Filling the Robotic Automation Skills Gap

Posted by Bob Graff on Nov 27, 2018 3:00:00 PM

Next-generation robotics and manufacturing processes, inspired by Industry 4.0, are prompting the need for a higher level of readiness within the American workforce. Currently, two out of five Americans agree the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) worker shortage is severe1, influencing a shift toward a more dynamic approach to education to adequately fill 3.4 million manufacturing jobs by 2025—2 million of which may go unfilled due to talent unavailability2. So, what can be done to support the staffing needs of the future?

The Smart Solution to End-of-Line Palletizing

Posted by Jack Uhl on Nov 12, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Palletizing can often be an afterthought when considering complete packaging line automation. In fact, it is not uncommon to see a company, especially with low-volume production, experience an uptick in production output based on primary and secondary robotic process automation alone. The major issue with this conservative approach is the unavoidable truth that successful implementation of robotic automation increases productivity, enabling businesses to thrive and grow.
