Have you ever stood in front of a rack of similar products in a big box store? Have you found yourself scratching your head, trying to make a decision as to which hard drive, TV, software package, blender, light bulb, door lock, or any other product is most appropriate for your needs?

To understand LEAN, we need to understand the two basic ideas that drive it, WASTE & VALUE.
Value is anything an end user or customer is willing to pay for. This is ultimately what drives a company. One important way for a company to add value is to eliminate waste. Waste can be any activity that does not add value to, or takes value away from a product. Overproduction, motion, defects, and excess inventory are some common examples of waste that could be occurring in your plant.
Robotics can help eliminate these examples of wastefulness.

The Model 100 SmartCart Automatic Guided Cart (AGC) is a flexible, rugged, highly functional material handling vehicle that follows a magnetic strip on the floor. These carts have been used as assembly platforms, and to haul engines and other large or smaller subassemblies from kitting areas to the assembly line in automobile plants. They have been used to move waste dunnage from kitting and breakdown areas to waste compactor. They can be used to tow trailers, move picking or part delivery racks, and perform a wide variety of other tasks in assembly, packaging and distribution operations.

Inertia Calculations by Your Robot Integrator Are Critical For Proper Robot Selection and End of Arm Tool Design
Motion Controls Robotics - February 04, 2014
Successful operation of a robot is highly dependent on the robot’s end of arm tool design and the load, and whether or not the proper robot was selected for the application. Proper robot selection needs to be based on the inertias of the loads to be handled by the robot, along with the inertias of the robot’s End of Arm Tool design.
Calculation of these parameters allows the robot integrator’s design engineer to determine what robot is needed for an application. Inertia values can also be used by the designer to adjust end of arm tool configuration and load orientation in order to optimize robot model selection and ensure the robot’s load will fall within the manufacturer’s design specifications.
