Prepare for the Unexpected with Acieta Automation
Around the world, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, manufacturers have had to completely pivot normal production to accommodate higher demands, a dwindling workforce, and more regulations on how to safely move forward. Though no manufacturer looks the same, those who have started their journey into robotic automation are experiencing an often unspoken benefit of automation: the ability to continue production during unexpected downtime. MANUFACTURERS MAKING HARD DECISIONS Manufacturers are split into two categories: essential and non-essential. Both groups are experiencing different, unprecedented problems. The essential businesses are being hit hard with rising demands, fewer resources and more regulations, amidst a worried staff concerned for their wellbeing. The non-essential... Read More

How Do Automation Robots Benefit Society?
Over the past century, automation has made an immeasurable impact on manufacturing, and it continues to do so to this day. From vast improvements in worker safety to facilitating the 40-hour workweek, manufacturing and industry as we now know them would not be possible without automation. You may have heard conversations or read articles positing that robots are in the process of replacing human workers, or even that they may one day take over the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. Robots support and augment the work that people do not only in manufacturing, but throughout society, across industries. Automation robots have made an impact in fields such as medicine, agriculture, finance, ecology, conservation and more. It is clear that, looking at robotic... Read More

Automated-Welding-Machine
Welding is an essential manufacturing process, and it's also one of the hardest to master. Metal arc welding is especially difficult because it requires maintaining a consistent torch orientation and arc length.   FastArc Weld Cells provide these consistencies, resulting in four areas of benefits: Improved quality Increased capacity Lower costs Safer working conditions Improved quality: An automated welding system provides consistency. High repeatability means the torch is positioned the same way and the arc length is the same on every cycle. This greatly reduces part-to-part variation compared to manual welding, especially when part design makes access difficult. Increased capacity: Automated welding systems can run 24/7 without a lunch break. Automated welding is faster than doing it... Read More
