  • What is Industrial Automation, and Where is it Taking Us?

    Welcome back to another series of interesting information and insights into modern technologies. This time around, we shall be taking up the topic of Industrial Automation. We hope you find it interesting. Let’s begin! Automation is rapidly transforming how we think about, operate, and utilize technology across industries for various processes. Today, industrial automation is a reality that goes beyond mechanization – it involves the active use of control devices like PCs, PLCs, and PACs to successfully navigate industrial processes. Though it is broad in scope and purpose, industrial automation can be defined precisely. Simply put, it refers to the integration of computerized machinery, information technologies, and control systems into…

  • The many benefits of warehouse robotics

    Welcome back! As we wrap up the series on warehouse robotics, where we understand the term and the different types of warehouse robots in the previous two blogs, today, we shall list down the many benefits of putting robots to use in warehouses. Let’s begin. Industrial productivity has come a long way since the 18th century. Not only have industries revamped themselves in terms of the total output, but the resources expended to produce a single unit of any finished product have also dramatically come down. Novel technological innovations have helped companies achieve both of these objectives simultaneously. Robotics is one such technology. Unerring accuracy, uninterrupted efficiency, and top-notch productivity…

  • How robotics is re-engineering the warehousing dynamics

    The manufacturing world is no stranger to technological transformations. Robotics is one such transition that has been in the works for decades and is coming into its own. It is yielding higher revenue and drastically reducing costs for firms globally. Warehouse robotics essentially involves using state-of-the-art automated systems, robotic machines, and software for executing routine, run-of-the-mill tasks in the warehouse. Once looked at with much skepticism, these robotic elements have risen to a position where companies insist on them being an inextricable part of the supply chain. The larger question that many Indian companies remain unconvinced about is the possible benefit that will accrue to their bottom line by using…

  • Impact and Rise of Service Robots in Healthcare

    Before we conclude the blog series on Robotics in Healthcare, we shall look at an essential type of robot taking the healthcare world by storm. Service robots relieve the burden on healthcare workers and paramedical staff by taking up routine logistical tasks. These robots can set up patient rooms, track supplies and file purchase orders, restock medical supply cabinets, and transport bed linens to and from laundry facilities. Delegating such tasks to robots helps the staff have more time for jobs that require human interaction and judgment. The rise of service robots The covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work with each other. Sanitation requirements and social…

  • Robotics in Healthcare: Applications (Part 1)

    The series starting with this blog was chosen by you – our readers and followers. Thus, we are extra excited about sharing interesting information through the upcoming blogs. We shall be talking about the confluence of 2 industries that are heavily trending at the moment. Robotics and healthcare! Hope you find the series engaging. The stress on greater precision in surgeries, better management of patients and hospitals, and reducing human errors in treatment keeps pushing the healthcare industry to adopt newer technologies. One such technology is robotics. The use of robotics in healthcare can be traced back to the 1980s when used for precise positioning of the cannula for brain…

  • How Industry 4.0 is integral to Yantra’s products

    Welcome to the last blog of our series on Industry 4.0. Over the previous four blogs, we have understood what Industry 4.0 really means, how it shall shape tomorrow’s factory, and the challenges companies face in becoming Industry 4.0 compliant. Industry 4.0 is a collection of next-gen technologies that helps solve challenges that almost every manufacturing organization faces today – regardless of their offerings or industry. The need to have seamless connectivity across the organization for easier flow of information, access to real-time data, and analysis to get insights. It promises to boost productivity, improve processes, and drive business growth by, essentially, changing the way we approach manufacturing. With the…

  • IoT and the Transformation of Material Handling

    As we continue the series of focused blogs on next-gen technologies, we shall now look at how the Internet of Things promises to transform material handling forever. Any improvement in material handling, which plays a pivotal part in any industry’s supply chain, translates into meaningful business value. Manufacturers and warehouse owners continuously try to speed up processes, increase worker efficiency, avoid product damage, and ensure overall safety. With the embrace of IoT, industry players can hope to improve on all these aspects. Let us see how! Increased visibility For years, sensors and tags – RFID and barcode – have been used to track materials and products through the warehouse. Real-time…

  • IoT and The World of Autonomous Material Handling

    In the last blog, we glimpsed into how the Internet of Things revolutionizes businesses and, ultimately, our lives. Connecting every possible physical object on the shop-floor to the internet via sensors leads to the generation of a massive amount of insightful data. Data that can be used to make processes more efficient, reduce costs and, increase output. IoT brings together data-acquiring sensors, internet, cloud computing, and analytics capabilities to deliver real-time information to business leaders to make effective smart decisions. We ask, what if the power of IoT can be used to improve the design and usage of autonomous material handling equipment like AGVs and AMRs? Read on to see…
