EDITORIAL Machines

EDITORIAL Machines Assist Human Beings On its own, the human being would be soon unable to cope in a big logistics center: enormous storage capacities, countless conveyor lines and high throughput demands are far beyond his personal capabilities. Next to the technical infrastructure he helps himself with an intelligent IT that is capable to manage the complexity of the processes. Key word: automation. The task of automation is to support the human being in his activities. Therefore, the container unloading machine on page 30 is a practical example. It relieves the human being from physically exhausting work and protects him from external influences. The term robot is mentioned when we talk about such operating machines. So far, robots act in housings or behind protective fences, separate from the human being. But times are changing: Modern robots have turned into sensitive assistants. Due to the deployment of intelligent electronics they do not require any protective fences anymore because the control is capable to define exactly prohibited areas. Furthermore, a sensible sensor system ensures that the robot arm stands still if it bumps into a human colleague or another obstacle. Equipped like this they work as third hand, third arm or as strong colleague shoulder on shoulder together with their human colleagues within their working environment. The human being must not be anxious to get in contact with the robot. In the consequence of simplified equipment and reduced requirements towards the infrastructure, robots become more and more interesting also for small to medium-sized enterprises, hence we will meet with them more often in the future. Modern robots become sensitive assistants Holger Seybold (editor-in-chief) More efficient. More productive. More successful. Optimise your processes in warehousing, production, and distribution.
