Georgia Number One state for Aerospace Manufacturing Coupled with Camden's Expertise in Space Industry

Spaceport Camden | October 15, 2020

Separate examinations from the consulting giant PwC and Georgia Southern University's Center for Business Analytics and Economic Research (CBAER) show the business appeal of Spaceport Camden.

PwC's 2020 Aerospace producing allure rankings records the State of Georgia as the main state in the nation for aviation fabricating. As per the report, "[Georgia's Aerospace and Defense] workforce of 108,000 is utilized by in excess of 800 aviation organizations. Aviation items, esteemed at $10.8 billion, represent the state's top fares and speak to the second biggest assembling industry in the state, speaking to $57.5 billion in financial effect."

Independently, a report by CBAER (PDF) at Georgia Southern University found that Camden County as of now represents 278 of Georgia's 926 direct space industry occupations. As per CBAER, "Camden County has an altogether more elevated level of specialization in the essential dispatch area than does the territory of Georgia… the expansion of a spaceport could help increment the work and wages effectively present here."

Direct space industry net local item has expanded since 2008 for both Georgia and Camden County, while information shows statewide GRP has developed by 88% and in Camden County by 125%. The normal yearly wages per specialist in Camden County are $42,757, while the immediate space area normal wages are $150,190 in 2019. This implies that a run of the mill work in the space area wins 3.5 occasions the local standard.

"Georgia is the number one state in which to do business, as well as the number one state for aerospace manufacturing. Coupled with Camden's existing expertise in the space industry, we are poised for massive growth with the approval of Spaceport Camden," said Steve Howard, Camden County administrator and Spaceport Camden project lead.

Camden County authorities have recently promoted Spaceport Camden's capability to help progressing military from Naval Base Kings Bay and to utilize plane design specialists from Georgia Tech University, the country's biggest maker of architects. Camden County foresees an official conclusion on its Launch Site Operator's License Application by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the spring of 2021.

About Spaceport Camden:

Our Vision is to develop a successful world class spaceport through a public-private partnership that establishes Camden County as the Commercial Space Center of the United States. Our Mission is to create the premier spaceport strategically positioned to provide economic diversity with a competitive advantage for the space sector, Camden County, the State of Georgia and the United States of America.

"As wood industry recovery accelerates, manufacturers are pressured to maximize productivity. The answer: lean manufacturing. With capacity having never been tighter, there's no room for error. Adopting lean practices helps by getting work done right, the first time, quickly and efficiently. Waste is minimized, capacity increases, and profits grow. Since lean manufacturing uses a continuous improvement approach, there is always more to learn about lean, which is both process- and people-centered. That's why you'll want to join Tom Dossenbach, the leading national authority on lean wood manufacturing, and Steven Jarrett, an expert in lean manufacturing personnel selection, for this April 24 webcast."

Ultimation Industries' New Warehouse Robots Provide a Solution for Creating the Future's Fully Integrated Warehouse

Ultimation | May 07, 2021

With the global industrial robot market expected to rise at a 9% annual pace to $75.84 billion by 2025, Ultimation Industries LLC is extending its Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) line-up to provide automated systems that allow businesses of all sizes to turn their facilities into fully integrated warehouses. For over 30 years, Ultimation has been a leader in conveyor technology and automation. Ultimation has added warehouse robotics built by OTTO Motors of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada to their full line of material handling solutions. The addition of OTTO devices, according to Canny, is a good compliment to the company's newly announced strategic relationship with Denmark's Nord-Modules, which manufactures top modules for AMRs. These collaborations position Ultimation Industries as a one-stop-shop for the whole AMR kit. The new OTTO 1500, available from Ultimation, is designed to transport pallet-scale loads weighing up to 4,000 lbs. autonomously through busy factories and warehouses. With a maximum speed of two meters per second (about 4.5 mph), the OTTO 1500 delivers more payload more quickly and efficiently than any other AMR in its class. Unlike manual pallet jacks and forklifts, the OTTO 1500 moves the heaviest payloads in complex conditions with speed, safety, and agility. It is most widely used to connect current automated processes, such as machining centers, welding cells, packaging cells, palletizers, or stretch wrappers. Unlike automated guided vehicle (AGV) or cart (AGC) systems, which require a route or track to follow or use wires or lasers, warehouse robots read their environment using integrated sensors. Once an AMR has been assigned to a warehouse, it will move from point A to point B on a single order with no human intervention. AMRs, when properly implemented, will also help increase the overall safety efficiency of a warehouse operation. AMRs can handle loads that humans cannot, and when equipped with the appropriate top module, they avoid the repetitive bending and stretching associated with loading and unloading. They are easy to incorporate, adaptable, and can be used to supplement current material handling systems without reconfiguring production lines or factory footprints. Although warehouse robots provide tremendous flexibility, certain tasks, such as accumulating or buffering, are better suited to floor-mounted motor-driven roller conveyors or overhead control and free conveyors. “The optimal facility plan will take this into consideration and link material handling processes as an integrated whole,” Canny said. Ultimation is the leading direct-to-consumer conveyor maker, specializing in resolving efficiency issues with quick-to-deploy solutions. The company develops, produces, and implements material handling equipment and has the capability of manufacturing automation components and subassemblies. About Ultimation Ultimation Industries, LLC is a woman-owned industry leader in conveyor technology and automation. Ultimation, which was established in 1989, develops, manufactures, and installs machinery and equipment, automated devices, tire and wheel processing lines, and conveyor systems for customers all over the Americas. The firm has a line of proprietary automation systems and is also a Jervis Webb Conveyor Systems integrator. Ultimation's e-commerce channel offers conveyor equipment from Ultimation, Interroll, Itoh Denki, Jervis Webb, and other manufacturers.
