Manufacturing Engineering

The May issue of Manufacturing Engineering trains a spotlight onto the shiny cases of robots and automation. Manufacturers are turning to automation and robotics to improve cost and quality. But they are also finding that flexible automation improves employee morale, relieving workers from dull, dirty, or repetitive tasks. Our features kick off with a look at how autonomous mobile robots—AMRs—are being used for much more than material handling. Then we talk to manufacturers who’ve implemented robotic automation and learn why, what the results were—and what advice they have for others. Then two more features look at what's new in automation for, respectively, machine-tool work cells and flexible machining cells. And the topic continues in our Shop Solutions section, which begins with a case study called, "My Robot Colleague Has it All Under Control."
