Paul Kirkpatrick, DuPont Maydown, mentioned: “Following two years of intense analysis and collaborative innovation with FAST Applied sciences, this can be very gratifying to see the brand new AMR (autonomous cell robotic) up and operating and doing precisely what we hoped it might.
“The AMR is used within the manufacturing of Kevlar® and permits the secure unloading of completed bobbins, the emptying of tubes mechanically and the motion of bobbins to outlined places. The AMR can be working in a particularly difficult work atmosphere alongside working personnel, so it has a posh communication construction that can maintain it operating at capability and safely.”
FAST Applied sciences is a sophisticated manufacturing firm, specialising in automation, robotics and software program options for firms globally.
Colin Spence, Director at FAST Applied sciences, mentioned: “The system we have now developed in collaboration with DuPont is in contrast to any robotic accessible to industrial producers immediately. Extra than simply an AMR that is automated and clever, totally cell and without having for tracks, with an onboard collaborative robotic arm that may manipulate as much as 16kg hundreds.
“It has built-in environment friendly imaginative and prescient system that gives depth notion for various heights or stacked objects to account for dynamic working environments. The partnership with DuPont has introduced collectively years of mixed expertise and data to develop a sophisticated manufacturing answer that permits safer, extra productive, and environment friendly workspaces.
