Automotive Automation: When watching today's industrial robot arms in action it is hard to believe the first robot arm, the Unimate, weighed 1.6 tons with only a 12 kg payload. Today's arms are slimmer, lighter, the payload is higher, and controllers are much smaller. Demand for automation continues to escalate as companies search for ways to optimize operations and relieve employees of monotonous work — at this time only a small percentage of factory work is automated. "How Automotive Robotics Have Paved the Way for Modern Automation" tells us how the automotive industry proving grounds evolved into robots at work in a variety of manufacturing processes. Find out what's next for automation.
