Robots are becoming more common in the workplace. In the manufacturing environment, users are demanding more flexibility with fewer resources, more consistent quality and reliability, and improved ergonomics while working at faster rates in less physical space.

Flexibility is a major issue for many who have faster product changeover and are coping with different packaging formats. Automation and robotics have become more cost effective and payback periods have become shorter. People are considering their benefits.

In Australia, factors driving increased interest in robots are: increased focus on workplace health and safety; job satisfaction; consolidation of facilities driving higher production volumes and speeds; demand for better quality for domestic and export markets; competitiveness driving maximum yield; a larger range of products and packaging driving the need for more flexibility.

Wiley invites visitors to FoodPro to 'beat the robot at golf'. This year, Machinery Automation & Robotics (MAR) has joined us to display an interactive robotic golf contest. It is you against the robot to hit a golf ball accurately at a target - for a prize. The golf robot demonstrates a range of advanced technologies to the food industry - a Kuka robot, vision system, customised vacuum gripper, gripper sensors, touch screen interface and cabling minimisation. Wiley advises on, designs and constructs buildings and manufacturing processes for clients in Australia and around the world, with the power to offer a complete suite of services. The company offers logic and solutions early to save time and money later. Professional advice gives projects firm foundations.

Projects are designed to expose all costs and avoid expensive mistakes and the company sources, designs and delivers the technology, equipment, system, processes, training and maintenance programs to make projects work.
