The disruptions caused by COVID-19 are directing manufacturing companies to tap automation and enable Robotic supply chains. The pandemic is quite instructive that the global supply chains that bring us many of our products have weakened in the process. The utilization of programmable industrial robots will increase and solve many problems to produce the products that we use.
So, what are the Supply Chain Solutions to Fight Disruptions like COVID-19?
As of last fall, most of the manufacturing companies reported unoccupied jobs, owing in large part to a gap between the skills companies required and the skill-sets employees had in the recent scenarios.
“So, if workers aren’t accessible, one alternative is the enablement of robots and automated processes that can support the supply chains by tapping automation for the post-pandemic world.”
How Software can enable Workers to Program Industrial Robots for Manufacturing Tasks
There are specific software and hardware devices to facilitate industrial robots. The software assists workers with little to no understanding of robotics to programming industrial robots for performing different manufacturing processes and activities.
With tailored robots, manufacturing companies can use them for custom runs, blending up with what they manufacture currently.
The Robotic Supply Chains Solutions – Robo Pick & Scan Mechanism by Shubham Automation
The team at Shubham Automation has mechanized the next steps of its automated processes by the Pick & Scan mechanism with its innovative Robo device, which is known as Robo Scan. This Robotics based smart aggregation system secures and makes the aggregation process seamless. This technology comes with a one-stop solution for all size and type of package scanning for consumer packaging goods and pharma industry.
By complying with stringent international guidelines governing the industries, Shubham’s Track & Trace Solutions directly collect and verify serialized information right on the primary package and the label. The entire system easily integrates with Shubham’s Smart Tracker Software and other third-party software.
Pick & Place Steps that are Enabled by Shubham Automation’s Robotic Systems
The bottles are discharged and the Robo picks & places the bottles in the shipper box as per the laid down matrix, which best fits in bulk packing line. The Robo can even place the layers in the box and fill the bottles in the set box automatedly. The further change part and other customizations can be applied for scaling the mechanism as per customized requirements.
Enablement of the Scanning Processes by Shubham’s Team
Shubham has introduced a single high-resolution smart camera-based technology that captures and reads all 2D codes of the stack in the field of vision to enable multiple code reading. Once the bottles are in accordance with the pre-set production process, a parent-child relationship is created, and the box is further labeled using the TTO type printer both manually or can be automated through our Print and Apply solution.
Key Benefits of the Robo Pick & Scan Mechanism comprises
- End to End Automation
- Innovative and Swift Processes
- Highly Accurate Procedures
- Free from Manual Errors
- Highly Robust and Scalable System
- Fits as per Client Requirements
- No Human Touch-points Involved
All these automation-based transformations were already in process and underway previous to the pandemic. However, COVID-19 is now accelerating them swiftly. So, the future outlook of supply chain infrastructure will be persistent in recovering the slowed-down economy through automation and by enabling Robotic supply chains in a quick time.
