The factory workers are the greatest good that companies have, but they have some drawbacks as they tire, They need to eat and drink, They go to the bathroom, injured / ill and catch the lower, and various other events that make their management and efficiency are not the best.
Instead, Robots are their “competidores” more efficient because they do not catch downward, never tire, and they do not need to stop to go to the bathroom, eat drink. Although best for everyone is to combine robots and people to make a quality production, efficient and safe, factories of the future will be full of autonomous systems that will make productivity rise by a significant percentage.
SEAT already stepping up in this regard and its factory in Martorell is a clear example of intelligent autonomous systems of commercial vehicles share the “shop-floor” with the operators and the other components of the production line of automobiles.
Today's video lead you out of doubt, and also shows us the incredible numbers. 7.000 employees and 125 autonomous robots coexist in Martorell ships. Autonomous robots are responsible for supplying 23.800 parts / assemblies to production lines, make 2.800 daily trips following 40 different routes and are controlled only by the control room of the factory. They are able to withstand up 1.500 kilos load, They make over 400.000 kilometers per year and are safe for operators, and thanks to its sensors stop when someone or something is in your path or around.
A breakthrough that has made reducing production time on a SEAT 25 %, it's not bad at all, ¿eh? AGVs or Automated Guided Vehicles are just around the corner.
