Schunk, which operates in more than 50 countries around the world and is the world leader in robotic automation equipment, CNC machine workpiece clamping systems and tool holders market, offers its users systems based on high precision, speed and flexibility with its 38 years of experience in robot equipment. Technology giant Schunk, which will make smart, learning, feeling, robotic systems that can be controlled by artificial intelligence algorithms much more effective with 5G connection and other digital infrastructures, aims to be a solution partner for the sectors of the future.
Standing out with its robot grippers, grippers, rotary modules, linear axes, robot accessories, modular assembly technology and modular robotic products, Schunk aims to be among the factors of smart transformation that will radically change many sectors and increase flexibility, speed and efficiency in production areas. . Expressing that they are developing their competitive product range day by day with the aim of decreasing production costs and increasing efficiency, Schunk Turkey and Middle East Country Manager Emre Sönmez said that they want to make a positive change for humanity by taking a leading role in the future of robots.
The power of robots will shape the world of the future
Emre Sönmez, who said that the Industry 4.0 revolution, artificial intelligence and the rapid development of the internet of things gave a great impetus to robotic systems; “The use of robots in almost every field from production to operational processes has reached such a speed that the future of robotics opens the doors of a brand new era in all industries in the world and in Turkey. The dominance and automation of robots in the workforce is turning into a fundamental argument for companies and countries to increase their competitiveness and make them sustainable. Today, the power of robots with powerful sensing abilities, consisting of electronic and mechanical units that can perform autonomous or pre-programmed tasks, is shaping the world of the future. Robotic and autonomous systems integrated into existing conditions both increase efficiency by minimizing the error rate in all processes and provide cost and time advantages by preventing possible disruptions. At the same time, it increases the flexibility in the processes of providing products and services, while maintaining the standards in product / service quality thanks to their repeatability. All these parameters are decisive for the rapid progress of robotic systems today and in the future.
Robot installations reach 381 million units in factories worldwide
Sönmez emphasized that with the combination of mobile computing power, decrease in sensor prices, open source software, rapid prototyping skills and different technologies, a different stage will be reached in robot evolution; “With the increase in the processing power of computers every year, the maturation of cloud and IoT technologies, the fact that 2020D printing makes robot technologies practical, and the use of open source software, which is a flexible system by nature, is entering a very critical process. Now, in the future of robots, it is inevitable that business lines that are only managed by robots will emerge, as well as hybrid approaches. According to IFR's 2,7 World Robotics Report, a record was broken with the installation of 2009 million robots in factories around the world. In line with IFR data, annual installations of industrial robots more than tripled between 2019 and 381, reaching 5 million units in factories worldwide. It is obvious that this acceleration will continue at the same pace in the future. As a result of the effective cooperation of human and cyber-physical systems, it is very soon that mechanisms that combine different occupational profiles and, accordingly, different disciplines come into play. At this point, especially XNUMXG technology will be decisive in smart production systems.” He underlined the future effectiveness of robots.
With digitalization, robots will experience the fastest period of their evolution
Emre Sönmez stated that as Schunk, they operate with robotic systems that touch life and serve a strong ecosystem; “Automotive, automotive sub-industry, white goods, fast-moving consumer goods and electrical-electronics sectors are among our priority fields of activity. At the point we have reached today; We are in a digital mobility era where flexible, smart, self-learning, artificial intelligence algorithms are intense and 5G communication technology is used. Robotic applications can be encountered in almost every field. The acceleration of digitalization, especially with the pandemic, will provide growth opportunities for the robotics field and a very strong perspective in the long run. At this point, we, as Schunk, will continue to be a solution partner for every sector with the autonomous and robotic systems we produce.”
