Industry 5.0: Mass Personalization
Henry Ford’s visionary ideas and inventions well outlived him: the assembly line made its way from Industry 3.0 to Industry 4.0, where it became more “connected” and efficient.In this white paper, we explore how cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), computer vision, and cognitive systems can be fine-tuned to support mass personalization and add a much-needed human touch to production (and beyond).

Flexible Robotic End Effectors for Redeploying Robots

whitePaper | June 8, 2020

Before cobots and other fast-deployable robots, many automated manufacturing cells incorporated only fixed or dedicated tooling rather than solutions that allow for changes or updates. An advantage of fixed automation is that it allows for reliable and high throughput, but it also tends to be custom engineered towards a specific process. Any changes in the workpiece or production process often mean redesigning large sections of the fixed automation system or even starting completely over from scratch.

Secure Access Service Edge for Manufacturing

whitePaper | April 4, 2022

Digital transformation is driving the adoption of Industry 4.0 in manufacturing. Multiple technologies, such as internet of things (IoT) devices and artificial intelligence (AI), are changing manufacturing processes. For instance, more is being done with robotics, 3D printing, and industrial clouds. Employees need to digest all these innovations to enable new ways for them to do their jobs properly. Around the globe, industries have implemented work-from-home policies. In most manufacturing companies, there is a mixture of employees from the business office to the factory floor, and manufacturers can now instantly enable remote work for these employees.

4-step holistic manufacturing strategy for the 4th Industrial Revolution

whitePaper | September 30, 2022

Until 2020, progress towards digital transformation for most manufacturers was slow. But the urgency for manufacturers to make successful digital transformations escalated during the first 8-12 months of the global pandemic. As COVID-19 reshaped consumer buying behaviors, the pace jumped from a crawl to a sprint: According to one study, 85% of organizations accelerated their digital transformation initiatives in 2020.[1] Some industry observers believe we witnessed 6.5 years of digital progress in the last eight months of 2020 alone.[2] The pandemic was largely responsible for worldwide supply chain disruptions that slowed down goods production and delivery. As a result, manufacturers justifiably focused on managing and fixing the supply chain problems first. But as the pandemic continued, it became clear that the supply chain issues were a symptom of something deeper than the short-term disruptions.
