Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2015 -- According to System Integration News, sponsored by Bastian Solutions, employees tend to be concerned when robotic labor is introduced to the workplace. Based on implementation, the investment in new technology proves to be an investment in the employees. Robots are aiding in repetitive tasks that are physically demanding.
Employees experience reduced physical and mental fatigue as well as a reduction in accidents. Mobile robots are providing product and pallet handling in warehouses and distribution centers; previously employees were responsible for knowing product storage locations and maintaining rates with colleagues to keep throughput at a maximum; trying to go too fast or becoming tired, causing accidents. With mobile robots employees can focus on quality checks and specialty products or shipments that would not be handled by the robot, staying safely out of the hazardous area of high-traffic storage locations.
System Integration News, a weekly e-newsletter, sponsored by Bastian Solutions brings important and interesting information to those in the material handling, automation, goods-to-person systems, wearable AR technology, supply chain software, robotics. From best practices to industry data, this weekly communique reports trend data, process improvement, and technology evaluations and profitability.
Bastian Solutions will be exhibiting at ProMat 2015 (Booth #3953) held March 23-26 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
