RapidMade and AMFG Partner to Take Manufacturing Automation to the Next Level, Reducing Manual Tasks
AUSTIN, TX, April, 2023 – AMFG and RapidMade are advancing their vision of a fully autonomous manufacturing workflow by automating areas of the production process that were previously performed manually.
AMFG and RapidMade are pleased to announce the consolidation of their partnership with a new offering that provides robotized solutions to existing autonomous manufacturing workflows. The aim of this new offering is to address the gaps in the manufacturing process by automating the in-between stages that automation has not yet caught up to, thereby increasing the proportion of the workflow that is fully autonomous. The collaboration accelerates the vision of a truly autonomous workflow by providing solutions to each stage of production that enable manufacturers to achieve their production targets faster and more efficiently.
Our partnership is further strengthened by our joint appearance at the Rapid+TCT trade show in Chicago from May 2-4, 2023. We invite you to join us at booth #4656 to learn more about our collaboration and the innovative solutions we have to offer.
By streamlining their manufacturing processes and automating tasks that were previously done manually, manufacturers can increase productivity while maintaining quality and safety standards. With the introduction of robotized solutions, AMFG and RapidMade are taking a significant step towards realizing their vision of a fully autonomous manufacturing workflow.
The manufacturing industry has made significant strides in automating various aspects of the production process, but the in-between stages of the manufacturing process remain largely manual and time-consuming. The gaps in the manufacturing process that result from these in-between stages often result in delays, quality issues, and inefficiencies. The lack of automation in these stages also means that workers spend a significant amount of time performing repetitive tasks that could be automated, leaving them with less time to focus on more critical tasks. These problems can lead to a slower production process and increased costs, which can be detrimental to a business’s bottom line.
On the long path to a truly and wholly automated production workflow, it is these in-between jobs that the focus of autonomous manufacturing has turned to.
With the use of cobots, manufacturers can streamline their processes and increase productivity while maintaining quality and safety standards. Cobots have the potential to automate the repetitive tasks that are often time-consuming and error-prone, allowing workers to focus on more critical tasks that require human expertise.
Post-production and inspection processes aren’t neglected either – cobots such as OB7 use their self-learning, no programming approach to intelligently inspect and identify parts, performing repetitive and time-consuming tasks such as removing builds from the print bed, thus removing the need for costly human intervention between builds.
As a result, manufacturers can achieve their production targets faster, more efficiently, and with higher quality standards.
Keyvan Karimi, founder and CEO of AMFG, celebrated the partnership by stating: “We’re excited to announce our partnership with RapidMade, which will bring us closer to our goal of automating more of the manufacturing processes that are still performed manually today. By combining our strengths, we aim to empower manufacturers to streamline their operations, increase efficiency, and maintain quality standards. We can’t wait to revolutionize the industry together and help manufacturers achieve a fully autonomous manufacturing workflow.”
Mark Eaton, President of RapidMade, said: “We have worked with AMFG for many years to develop autonomous manufacturing workflow solutions. This partnership enables us to offer US customers enhanced productivity solutions by bringing together RapidMade’s application and digital manufacturing knowhow and AMFG’s best in class autonomous manufacturing software products.”
With the announcement of their partnership, AMFG and RapidMade have taken a significant step towards realizing their vision of a truly autonomous workflow. By offering a range of cobots that are easy to use and integrate into existing workflows and with the benefits of AMFG’s MES solution, they are helping manufacturers streamline their processes and increase productivity while maintaining quality and safety standards.
The implementation of cobots represents a new chapter in the manufacturing industry’s history, offering a faster, more efficient, and autonomous workflow that promises to revolutionize the sector.
We are excited to present our case at the Rapid+TCT trade show and invite you to join us in exploring the potential of our innovative solutions.
