As the world feels the full weight of the Covid-19 crisis, we should individually prioritize the safety of ourselves, our families, friends, neighbors and communities. But in times like these, I believe companies also have a special responsibility to support their employees, communities and customers. Coronavirus poses a serious and immediate concern for companies around the world and directly affects the health and safety of tens of thousands of people.
In the past, networking equipment manufacturers looking to automate their assembly lines may have balked at the implementation times of first-generation automation solutions, which typically took 12-18 months to implement. Today’s next-generation automation showcases radically better implementation times.
Reskilling an entire workforce is no small feat and not the responsibility of any one party. Success relies on support from a complex web of institutions from government, to industry, to academia. Still, technology companies can play a more proactive role by considering the following factors.
No matter how big or small, possible disruptions can impede your manufacturing operation at any time. In order to ensure a healthy supply chain, one that can seamlessly weather uncertain storms, it’s imperative for today’s manufacturers to incorporate local-first strategies.
By Greg Eden, CMO, Bright Machines Automation is good for manufacturers and, ultimately, the people buying and using the products being made. So, why isn’t it much more pervasive in today’s factories? […]
As speakers have evolved from music players to multi-faceted smart devices, including the voice user interfaces of a growing legion of digital assistants, their presence at home and work has grown. Audio devices of all shapes and sizes, built by a variety of manufacturers, are everywhere.
Bright Machines Microfactories increase production and lower cost per unit.
In 2002, Diagnostics for the Real World (DRW) began with a lofty but admirable goal: to tackle the world’s most serious infectious diseases through breakthrough point-of-care diagnostics. Led by Dr. Helen Lee of the Diagnostics Development Unit at the University of Cambridge, our mission from day one has been to bring these technologies to resource-limited regions that otherwise lack access to advanced medical care. Throughout the years, we’ve managed to remain small and nimble, focused first and foremost on maintaining the quality and accuracy of our SAMBA diagnostic instruments and test cartridges. After all, when developing critical diagnostic tests for remote areas, the product performance simply cannot be compromised.
By Bartosz Mazurek, VP Electronics Segment, Bright Machines Electronics manufacturing has seen a good deal of transformation in the last few decades – the implementation of advanced pick and place was a […]
Automation technologies are nothing new. Since the dawn of time, new inventions have been introduced into society with the ultimate goal to help improve our lives. From the wheel to the printing press, the powerful impact of automation is inevitable in shaping our future. And whether or not we welcome these advances with open arms, these forms of automation have had a profound impact on the way we produce, purchase and participate in our society.
Driven by the ongoing D.I.Y. trend, a global rise in discretionary income, and a growing fondness for all things “cordless,” the worldwide power-tool market is set to surge in the new decade, with projections topping $38 billion in sales by 2025 and a healthy 5-7% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).
