#1 When you should make room for robots
With a new Star Trek movie out and a lot of talk about “cloud” computing you got to feel that the future is chasing you down a dark alley in a way like only the new Terminator can. The future is about new things, so that is what we also are going to do on cadcamstuff.com We welcome you to Theme Week! So hold on to your socks, for the next 4 days you are going to get a doze of robots attacking you from different sides.
We have all seen the the symphony of industrial robots welding cars on TV, a musical that lately have become very silent. Saying the phrase “mama and papa shop”, and then throw in the word Robots and some people will lift an eye brow. There was a time when that kinda shops where for making custom garden gates and welding up exhaust pipes, but more and more of those types of shops turned into high tech manufacturing facilities using the same machines and software as big league companies like Boeing and Ford Motor company.
Should mama and papa consider robots as there next step on the ladder? the answer is absolutely not to eliminate jobs necessarily, but to increase work flow in a high tech world.
So where do you start? The following 3 days on cadcamstuff.com are dedicated in the name of Robotics, and each day will introduce a kick of robot power.
So when to consider these monsters? From machining, welding, deburing, moving, loading/unloading, painting, scanning, assembling, anything that have the task of repeatability in it would most likely possible with Robotic power.
