The manufacturing industry thinking deeply about how to achieve unmanned production. Not only to reduce the labor intensity but also to ensure product quality. People will engage in more creative work, such as design and innovation.
The impact of COVID-19 has been felt across industries including manufacturing. Among them, manufacturing relies heavily on skilled workers with practical experience and complex supply chains. According to a March 2020 survey by the National Association of Manufacturers. Four out of five U.S. manufacturing companies expect to be financially affected by COVID-19, more than half say they need to change the way they operate. A third expect supply chain disruptions.
Novel Coronavirus also forces manufacturers to address important issues facing their employees. Including remote working and social distance. It’s a critical time for manufacturers to build their supply chains and operations more agile and digital. Automation and cloud technologies can help in this area to restore business as usual under the new norms.
While the full impact of the COVID-19 is still not clear, but many factories are already experiencing reduced labor and resources.Manufacturers are facing a range of thorny issues around how to quickly learn about new situations. Develop new operating procedures and automation plans to adapt quickly and ensure that employees can work safely on site.
We hope to help manufacturers address these challenges by providing a combination of more technology applications that can automate processes, monitor systems remotely, and extend their capabilities beyond the factory boundaries. For example, with Vision AI, manufacturers can train machine learning models to visually check the quality and compliance of goods and processes without putting human inspectors at risk. By connecting operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) in a cloud manner, operators can use information centers and performance views to remotely monitor and control specific machines or plants. So far, Starsplas has developed FlorFlow Version system, which successfully classifies 80% of defects based on initial image data for SPC flooring defect.

In addition, StarsPlas use manipulator in unpacking, stacking and packaging.This series of unmanned production not only ensures the quality of products, but also reduces the consumption of labor costs. More video information please click this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_UoqxurX2U

StarsPlas is an integrated automation manufacturer. We are always thinking about how to achieve fully automatic production, online inspection, traceable quality management, and establish a business ethical supply chain system.With the partnership we have established with Kuka, we are fully committed to unmanned production and management to solve these challenges for more manufacturers.
