Maximizing on-site productivity through a new global perspective
The objective of "Autonomation Beyond Human Ability" is to create manufacturing sites that rely less on human workers. This frees these workers from heavy labor so that they can feel safe to focus on creative tasks. Additionally, implementing autonomation that enables energy efficiency in these sites will allow for a new way of manufacturing that can continuously produce quality products efficiently and with less impact on the environment. We solve difficult dilemmas in balancing capital productivity with flexibility and economic rationality with environmental preservation, through three approaches: Reproduction of Craftsmanship and Sensitivity, Autonomous Equipment Detecting Trends, and Production Line Evolving by Leveraging Energy Control.
Production sites with tasks that require flexibility and attention to detail tend to rely heavily on manual labor. At these sites, workers may need to work long hours, perform heavy labor, or engage in dangerous tasks under harsh conditions. We replicate the craftsmanship of skilled workers by using software to finely coordinate our ILOR+S* products. This replicated craftsmanship is integrated with AI to enable autonomation of tasks requiring flexibility and dexterity that were previously reliant on human labor.
