AMFG and RapidMade are advancing their vision of a fully autonomous manufacturing workflow by automating previously manual production processes. AMFG and RapidMade have announced the expansion of their collaboration with the launch of a new offering that provides robotized solutions to existing autonomous manufacturing workflows.
The goal of this new offering is to fill gaps in the manufacturing process by automating in-between stages where automation has not yet caught up, increasing the proportion of the workflow that is fully autonomous. The collaboration advances the vision of a truly autonomous workflow by providing solutions at each stage of production that allow manufacturers to meet their production targets faster and more efficiently.
Vision of a fully Autonomous Manufacturing Workflow
Manufacturers can increase productivity while maintaining quality and safety standards by streamlining their manufacturing processes and automating tasks that were previously done manually. AMFG and RapidMade have taken a significant step towards realising their vision of a fully autonomous manufacturing workflow with the introduction of robotized solutions.
Although the manufacturing industry has made significant progress in automating various aspects of the manufacturing process, the in-between stages of the manufacturing process remain largely manual and time-consuming. These in-between stages frequently cause delays, quality issues, and inefficiencies in the manufacturing process. Workers spend a significant amount of time performing repetitive tasks that could be automated, leaving them with less time to focus on more critical tasks due to the lack of automation in these stages. These issues can cause a slower production process and higher costs, which can be detrimental to a company’s bottom line.
The focus of autonomous manufacturing has shifted to these in-between jobs on the long road to a truly and completely automated production workflow.
“We’re excited to announce our partnership with RapidMade, which will bring us closer to our goal of automating more of the manufacturing processes that are still performed manually today. By combining our strengths, we aim to empower manufacturers to streamline their operations, increase efficiency, and maintain quality standards. We can’t wait to revolutionize the industry together and help manufacturers achieve a fully autonomous manufacturing workflow.”– Keyvan Karimi, founder and CEO of AMFG
Manufacturers can use cobots to streamline their processes and increase productivity while maintaining quality and safety standards. Cobots have the potential to automate time-consuming and error-prone repetitive tasks, allowing workers to focus on more critical tasks that require human expertise.
Post-production and inspection processes are also not overlooked – cobots like OB7 use their self-learning, no-programming approach to intelligently inspect and identify parts, performing repetitive and time-consuming tasks like removing builds from the print bed, removing the need for costly human intervention between builds.
As a result, manufacturers can meet their production goals more quickly, efficiently, and with higher quality standards.
“We have worked with AMFG for many years to develop autonomous manufacturing workflow solutions. This partnership enables us to offer US customers enhanced productivity solutions by bringing together RapidMade’s application and digital manufacturing knowhow and AMFG’s best in class autonomous manufacturing software products.”– Mark Eaton, President of RapidMade
AMFG and RapidMade have taken a significant step towards realising their vision of a truly autonomous workflow with the announcement of their partnership. They help manufacturers streamline their processes and increase productivity while maintaining quality and safety standards by offering a variety of cobots that are simple to use and integrate into existing workflows, as well as the benefits of AMFG’s MES solution.
Cobot implementation represents a new chapter in the history of the manufacturing industry, offering a faster, more efficient, and autonomous workflow that promises to revolutionise the sector.
