How self-programming robots enable high-mix manufacturing

Custom manufacturing – also known as mass customization, flexible manufacturing or batch of one – has become increasingly popular over the past few years as consumers demand the opportunity to make products “their own.”

It’s leading more manufacturers to create flexible production cells capable of producing a high mix of items at low volumes.

The new episode of Machine Language features an interview with Francois Simard, co-founder of Omnirobotic, a Quebec-based start-up that has developed vision technology for high-mix manufacturers.

Simard discusses the increasing use of AI in the robotics space and how automation can help high-mix, low-volume custom manufacturing processes.
