Hannibal Industries Increases Efficiency with Robotics and Inventory Management

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 15 settembre 2019

Hannibal Industries, one of the largest steel pallet rack manufacturers in the U.S., today announced it has added the latest robotic welding technology to its Southern California-based manufacturing facility in its continuing quest to make plant operations more efficient and productive. In addition, the company has purchased a CombiLIft CombiMG 2533-02 gantry crane that has been retrofitted to move master coils of steel for a more efficient stacking pattern, reduced emissions leveraging its LPG-fueled motor, and significant time savings on inter-plant transport of materials.
Hannibal Industries, an employee-owned company, conducts ongoing training to elevate its entire workforce to understand new technologies as they are introduced to the operation, and ensures that each advanced robotics element will bring significant benefits to customers and employees alike prior to implementation. Among the benefits of the new 30 by 90-foot RackMaster robotic welding system are high throughput, low cycle time, repeatable welds and easy operation, and features two robotic welders, two workstations, universal tooling, a Ferris Wheel positioner, vertical -down welding procedure and a customizable welding torch. The crane, which required both hiring and retraining and certification of existing employees in both operation as well as safety, will allow Hannibal to stack the steel master coils used for the production of racking as well as tubular products to three, saving a significant amount of space from a typical stack that can only be stacked to two with a traditional forklift.

SharesPost: Blockchain Will Reshape Industries Around The World And Eliminate Intermediaries

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 31 marzo 2018

Blockchain technology will redefine the business processes of many industries, cutting out the traditional middlemen and attracting a new breed of investors who will compete against venture capitalists to fund the most promising new applications, according to a research report by SharesPost.
Cryptocurrencies were the first successful implementation of blockchain technology, but industries from banking and payments to health care and real estate to video gaming and government will benefit from blockchain technology, according to the new, 33-page report by Rohit Kulkarni, Managing Director and Head of Research of SharesPost, Inc.
“Cryptocurrencies are just the beginning of a blockchain revolution that will transform virtually every industry that has traditionally relied on middlemen,” said Kulkarni. “The technology has the potential to reorder markets and industries, just as the Internet did at the turn of the 21st century. As important, the opportunities to fund blockchain applications are enormous. We’re already seeing new types of investors race ahead as traditional venture capital firms continue to allocate only marginal capital to this space.”Since 2016, there have been more than 150 investments in U.S.-based blockchain startups by venture capital firms, crypto-focused funds, and corporate VC investment arms. The report said significant amount of capital will flow to companies that are commercializing the technology beyond cryptocurrencies.
On page 21, the report lists the firms with the most blockchain investments. Digital Currency Group is No. 1 with 44 investments, followed by Pantera and Blockchain Capital, each with 10. Draper Associates and Andressen Horowitz, two of the world’s most well-known venture firms, each have funded nine companies.

Plastic Waste: a European strategy to protect the planet, defend our citizens and empower our industries

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 gennaio 2018

strasburgo-parlamento-europeoStrasbourg. The first-ever Europe-wide strategy on plastics, adopted today, is a part of the transition towards a more circular economy.It will protect the environment from plastic pollution whilst fostering growth and innovation, turning a challenge into a positive agenda for the Future of Europe. There is a strong business case for transforming the way products are designed, produced, used, and recycled in the EU and by taking the lead in this transition, we will create new investment opportunities and jobs. Under the new plans, all plastic packaging on the EU market will be recyclable by 2030, the consumption of single-use plastics will be reduced and the intentional use of microplastics will be restricted.
First Vice-President Frans Timmermans, responsible for sustainable development, said: “If we don’t change the way we produce and use plastics, there will be more plastics than fish in our oceans by 2050. We must stop plastics getting into our water, our food, and even our bodies. The only long-term solution is to reduce plastic waste by recycling and reusing more. This is a challenge that citizens, industry and governments must tackle together. With the EU Plastics Strategy we are also driving a new and more circular business model. We need to invest in innovative new technologies that keep our citizens and our environment safe whilst keeping our industry competitive.”Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for jobs, growth, investment and competitiveness, said: “With our plastic strategy we are laying the foundations for a new circular plastics economy, and driving investment towards it. This will help to reduce plastic litter in land, air and sea while also bringing new opportunities for innovation, competitiveness and high quality jobs. This is a great opportunity for European industry to develop global leadership in new technology and materials. Consumers are empowered to make conscious choices in favour of the environment. This is true win-win.”Every year, Europeans generate 25 million tonnes of plastic waste, but less than 30% is collected for recycling. Across the world, plastics make up 85% of beach litter. And plastics are even reaching citizens’ lungs and dinner tables, with microplastics in air, water and food having an unknown impact on their health. Building on the Commission’s past work, the new EU-wide strategy on plastics will tackle the issue head on.Today’s plastic strategy will transform the way products are designed, produced, used, and recycled in the EU. Too often the way plastics are currently produced, used and discarded fail to capture the economic benefits of a more circular approach. It harms the environment. The goal is to protect the environment whilst at the same time lay foundations to a new plastic economy, where the design and production fully respect reuse, repair and recycling needs and more sustainable materials are developed.Europe is best placed to lead this transition. This approach will bring new opportunities for innovation, competitiveness and job creation. With the plastic strategy, the Commission has adopted a Monitoring Framework, composed of a set of ten key indicators which cover each phase of the cycle, which will measure progress towards the transition to a circular economy at EU and national level.

Industrial Robots Global Study: China to overtake EU and North America by 2017

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 30 gennaio 2015

Frankfurt. More industrial robots will be operating in China’s production plants than in the European Union or North America. Operating unit numbers there will double from today’s 200,000 to more than 400,000. To compare: In North America, numbers will rise to about 300,000 – with 340,000 predicted for Europe’s five largest economies. So says the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) in its 2014 World Robot Statistics. China is already the world’s largest market in the sale of industrial robots. But this merely marks the first step in a fast game of catch-up. Given China’s still very low robotic density, the future market dimensions are palpably clear: To date, China only has 30 industrial robots per 10,000 employees in manufacturing industries. To compare: Germany’s robotic density is ten times larger – in Japan it is actually eleven times more. In North America robotic density is five times higher than in China, where the majority of industrial robots are used for handling operations (40%) and for welding (36%). The automotive industry is by far the largest customer (approx. 40%).
“The automation of China’s production plants has just started”, says Per Vegard Nerseth, Managing Director, ABB Robotics. “As the first foreign robot manufacturer to arrive here, we have observed the market and developments for years now. We have witnessed swift, almost explosive growth over the last two or three years, surpassing even our expectations.” Kuka and two Japanese robot manufacturers now also have their own locally-based production sites. Four out of five industrial robots in China are made by foreign manufacturers – the majority from Japan, North America and Europe. Yet more manufacturers are planning to build their own production lines in China.The Chinese government is simultaneously pushing forward with robotic research. Once again the main partners are leading foreign robotic manufacturers. In contrast, Chinese manufacturers have concentrated on customers satisfied with average quality and unsophisticated technology. But sales in this segment have also more than tripled since 2012.
World Robotics Industrial Robots: This unique publication presents comprehensive global statistics on industrial robots in uniform tables allowing consistent country comparisons. It contains detailed statistical data for some 40 countries, broken down by application areas, industrial branches, types of robots and by other technical and economic variables. Data on production, exports and imports are presented for a selection of countries. Trends in robot densities, i.e. number of robots per 10,000 persons employed in relevant sectors, are also featured.
