ADLINK Automation Product Software (APS SDK) provides dependable motion control management that allows existing motion control systems to upgrade to EtherCAT-based motion control without complicated program modifications or application redevelopment.
Electric vehicles have seen phenomenal growth during the last few years. However, this rise in demand puts pressure on the upstream suppliers and manufacturers to meet larger orders in a shorter time, forcing them to seek new and innovative ways to increase the efficiency and overall yield of their existing manufacturing systems. Battery manufacturers, whose batteries form a critical component for EVs, are having to reassess their production systems to increase their output, by stepping up the pace of production and by increasing the usable yield.
The optical lens market is expected to see continued growth as smartphone manufacturers focus on the quality of their cameras as a major product differentiator. The growth is being driven by more people using smartphones to replace their standalone cameras. Therefore, the optical lens manufacturers increase production capacity and speed up production to keep up with demand for these higher quality lenses, they are finding it more and more challenging to maintain their production quality, especially as they look for help with expansion while keeping their biggest trade secrets close to their chest.
The global TFT-LCD display panel market continues to grow as screens become an increasingly common fixture in every part of our lives, especially Large panels are drawing attention. In the manufacturing process, the large panel panels require more motion control axes for handling. However, expanding into multi-axis poses a major challenge to machine control and accuracy as it requires more powerful synchronization to avoid LCD panel cracks and distortions caused by asynchrony during the manufacturing process, affecting the overall quality.
Consumers want faster delivery. So retailers promise same-day and next-day delivery, then expect logistics companies to honor their commitment to help them fulfill those orders on time. However, rapidly increasing demand is taxing logistics providers' ability to successfully deliver orders as promised. Increasing service capacity can be tricky, so while labor costs continue to rise and labor supply remains unpredictable, many logistics companies are looking to increase and speed up automation to keep ahead.
