Automation and Robotics

A Sustainable Path to Profit

For nearly any type of industry that makes or moves things, chances are your customers are evaluating you with a similar set of criteria:

  • The speed of delivery and responsiveness to changing needs.
  • Achieving consistent quality while maintaining low price-points.

Can your operation deliver on each of these often conflicting measures,
and still remain profitable?


While there are several paths to keep and grow your business, many options can tempt you to cut corners, or leave you constantly scrambling to keep up. To crank up the heat, even more, competitors are knocking at your customers’ doors with promises of faster/better/cheaper.

automation and robotics for a sustainable path to profit

For all these challenges, few solutions can balance the demands as solidly as robotics.

If you ruled out robotics several years ago – or think it’s just an option for the big players – now is an exciting time to take a new look. With recent advancements that cut costs and expand capabilities, robotics has become a viable path to profitability for more businesses than ever.

Robotics can improve your speed to market

  1. Simple tasks are performed more quickly versus manual processes
  2. Robots free-up your skilled workforce to perform more complex tasks, making better use of time and money.
  3. Robotics provides consistent and predictable productivity that reduces management oversight. Common factors that jeopardize timelines (retraining, shift changes, sick time and turnover) have less impact on your operation.

Robotics can easily scale and adapt to changing demands

  1. Up to 4 robots can be added to a single controller to multiply the speed/scale of a task.
  2. A single robot can be programmed to perform multiple tasks in a single setup – easing transition time, training and space requirements.
  3. Programming/reprogramming is typically less time than prepping a conventional setup. Programming robots have become easier than in the past, so programmers can be more easily found or trained in-house.
  4. Software and perception technology has expanded robotic capabilities in recent years – allowing them to perform more tasks than previously possible.

robotics deliver consistent quality

Robotics deliver consistent quality

  1. Robotic movements are consistent, focused and precise – often with better than 0.5 mm repeatability.
  2. Avoid increased productivity loss and re-work that tends to happen late in a shift or work week due to fatigue.
  3. Quality scales up without the challenges of finding skilled workers to maintain it.

For the right processes, robotic automation delivers rapid ROI
through cost reduction and added value.

  1. Buy-in is simple and flexible, with turnkey and pre-programmed work cells that can be set up in for a couple days.
  2. The capital expense can be easily financed and provide tax advantages.
  3. Through an in-house specialist or robotics partner, ongoing programming and maintenance costs are lower than training and maintaining equivalent staff.
The life cycle of a robot can last years beyond its break-even threshold, then can be remanufactured for a “second life.”
Increased margins through predictable, high-quality production give you the leverage needed to stay competitive, retain customers and win new business.
Mid-West Machine Products converted their manual press brake operation to a fully automatic robotic system, resulting in a 35% increase in equipment utilization and a payback period fewer than 20 months.
The path to ROI is by way of a common-sense approach to applying the optimal level of automation for your process. Helping you find that path is what we do best.

Robotic process automation (RPA) is the technology that allows employees in a company to configure computer software or a “robot” to capture and interpret existing applications for processing a transaction, manipulating data, triggering responses and communicating with other digital systems.

RPA “robots” are revolutionizing the way we think about and administer business processes, IT support processes, workflow processes, remote infrastructure and back-office work. RPA provides dramatic improvements in accuracy, cycle time and increased productivity in transaction processing while elevating the nature of work by removing people from dull, repetitive tasks.

Robotic Process Automation from Reliance Networks Holdings can be applied specifically to a wide range of industries such as:

  • Process automation
  • IT support and management
  • Automated assistant

RPA from Reliance Networks Holdings will help you expedite back-office tasks in finance, procurement, supply chain management, accounting, customer service and human resources, including data entry, purchase order the issuing, creation of online access credentials, or business processes that require turnkey access to multiple existing systems.

As RPA brings more technologically-advanced solutions to businesses around the world, operating models that adopt automation, will cut costs, drive efficiency and improve quality.

 

Innovative auto driving and robot platform solutions provider

Samsung Techwin’s robot integrates control, precision sensing design and artificial intelligence. From industrial robots
that support unattended/automated operation at industrial sites to security robots that are responsible for monitoring public facilities and national borderlines, Samsung Techwin is developing various types of advanced robots for the future.

Key Technology

software-solutions

  • – Automatic driving algorithm:
    A robot can detect the surrounding environment on its own
    and estimate its current location to create the optimal path to
    its destination. After that, it can move safely to the destination
    by following the path detected.
  • – Multi-purpose movement robot design:
    Based on the design technology and the precision control
    technology to support the durability of robots, we are developing
    various types of indoor/outdoor movement robots by considering
    the user’s operation environment.

STAR (Samsung Techwin Autonomous Robot)-Application areas and main products.

STAR-1

  • As there was a need for low-cost type movement robot platforms, this robot was developed and it is an unattended driving robot for multi-purpose utility vehicles.

STAR-M

img5

  • Model developed by Samsung Techwin. It can drive on unpaved or rough roads to serve various purposes such as patrolling, monitoring and disaster rescue.

STAR-S

img6

  • It is a logistic conveyance robot to support automation of industrial sites. With the minimum amount of power, it can exert the maximum loading ability and provide efficient driving.
