There are many application scenarios of industrial robots in the manufacturing industry, and mobile robots (AGVs) that perform logistics handling work are increasingly used. Over the past few years, manufacturers have installed more automated guided vehicles than ever before, and they are responding quickly to market changes through advanced automation solutions.

With the gradual rise in labor costs, the profits of the manufacturing industry are getting thinner and thinner. Coupled with the impact of fierce competition in the global market, factories must find more low-cost ways to complete production tasks. In the new manufacturing environment, there is a higher demand for automation, not only to optimize the efficiency of the production line, but also to achieve real-time monitoring and improve the capacity of flexible production to meet customer demand for new product customization. 




Human labor has shown many deficiencies in modern manufacturing, such as some low-end jobs, and the younger generation is not willing to do repetitive labor. There are also some gravity-type jobs where human physical strength is limited, and moving large objects can slow down the efficiency of the production line. From a safety perspective, many scenes in manufacturing are full of harmful gases, sharp hard objects, and dirty scenes, which are likely to cause injuries to workers.

Compared to automation, automation shows great advantages in manufacturing. In some environments, robots can more successfully complete production tasks than humans. There are many application scenarios of industrial robots in the manufacturing industry, and mobile robots (AGVs) that perform logistics handling work are increasingly used. Over the past few years, manufacturers have installed more automated guided vehicles than ever before, and they are responding quickly to market changes through advanced automation solutions.

In fact, in the manufacturing industry in the past, various traditional means of transportation were also used. However, these devices cannot provide flexible services. Usually it needs to run on grooves, chains or fixed metal rails. This kind of equipment will be noisy, and it will easily stain the production site, and it will be expensive. Traditional means of transport do not allow manufacturers to change their exercise routes and lack flexibility.

Today, a new generation of automated guided AGVs, that is, mobile robots, emerges as the times require. They can operate in complex production environments through induction, magnetic tape, and map navigation and positioning technologies, and can change the route they use at will. Often, manufacturers reprogram AGVs, or plan routes to meet new mission requirements. In addition, these robots are connected to the network, and the optimal path is calculated and analyzed, so that the robot can complete the task in less time, and ultimately save the operating cost.

Manufacturers can configure the number of robots according to the number of production tasks. As long as this mobile robot is bought back, the parameters can be put into use immediately, and even increased demand for temporary production can be solved by leasing, so manufacturers will save More unnecessary money. The traditional chain-based transportation tools need to spend a lot of time to set up the track, and the equipment is not easy to dismantle after being put into use. This backward traditional product is inefficient and inflexible, and will face the elimination of the market.

With the rise of intelligent manufacturing models, factories in the future must be automated and intelligent, and this type of mobile robot will be one of the key roles. Generally, mobile robots can interact with the manufacturing execution system to implement functions such as error prevention and traceability. Mobile robots can be better integrated into the intelligent manufacturing system to achieve the delivery of product components in various production links, ensuring that the entire production line is at the highest level. Run efficiently.

In addition, emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence continue to develop, bringing many benefits to mobile robots. Manufacturers are using vision and laser navigation to improve the recognition ability of mobile robots in industrial scenarios. By adding artificial intelligence algorithms, robots can achieve autonomous operation and have the ability to make autonomous decisions, thereby better cooperating. Furthermore, we can use voice commands, face recognition and other technologies to easily call robots into production tasks, further improving the efficiency of equipment use.
