I help businesses automate and lay off workers

>Graduate with Masters in Electrical Engineering with a focus on Robotics and Automation

>Get hired by company right out of school that helps other companies automate more of their production processes

>First contract I get to work on is a local family owned bicycle factory

>Apparently original owner died and the son tookover

>We meet with new owner and his managers, we discuss what they want done, production numbers, quality control, budget, etc.

>This goes on for several weeks until we settle on a price, where we're going to source the robots, which manufacturer (they went with Fanuc iirc), whether they would use refurbished robots or not (their processes weren't that accurate so it'd be a waste to use brand new robots where the accuracy isn't needed)

>Everything in their processes was very hands on, all welding is done manually with parts clamped in jigs

>Begin modelling how the different processes work, which ones could be optimized, discarded all together, where to add steps if needed, etc.

>Settle on a basic feed-and-wait model where tubestock and parts are near robot stations, robots can feed parts for the most part but still need a human to occasionally put a part in a fixture then let the robot pick up the part, robots will continue to produce until the station upstream from them either has no part or is waiting for the next station to finish

>Meet with the company to discuss model, they want a few things added, eventually get final model

>Company signs off on model, green light to implement

>Owner gives employees a generous 1 month long Christmas break to give us enough time to install all the equipment and have everything calibrated

>They junk a lot of their old equipment to make room for the robots and new equipment

        The US is practically 3rd world
        in fact, they are more 3rd world now than the actual fricking 3rd world factories lmao

        Your average american factory is a run by an aging out boomer workforce "mass" producing 1/1000th of the product an automated chinese factory does, at 10,000% the cost.

        The 3rd world is going to be richer than america and europe pretty soon. China, Korea, and Japan already are if you look at quality of life and industrial output instead of lying israeli GDP numbers. The rest of the south east asians will follow suit shortly, then Mexico, Russia, and Iran. In 50 years the remaining impoverished shitholes will be the USA, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Africa, India, Pakistan, and half the middle east.

        The west is getting fricking eviscerated because of shortsighted israeli interests purposefully sabotaging white people at every turn. The whole political system is broken and industrialists who achieve anything are cut down by their own governments because total control over a molehill is preferable to having a mountain of prosperity. It's just natural israeli behaviour and our entire leadership is now israeli to the core.

              The bureaucracy bullshit is rampant in the west. It's actively preventing actual progress.

              Just look at the swedish union attempting a strike against musk, who doesn't even employ them - they went and indirectly started striking at OTHER companies, to stop the flow of supplies or prevent the rendition of services to try and force musk to accept unionization. This is all while the non-unionized employees at his company are making MORE than the union employees are in sweden.

              This kind of corruption is fricking rife in the west. Everywhere you turn you find people screwing each other for their piece of a pie.

            It's not just automation, it's everything from product design to packaging. Automation is a big part of it though.
            There's a thousand useless regulations you need to comply with. It's mostly money - you hire someone with the right credentials to do the job and they certify you.
            Problem is, it's a very high fixed cost. For a big company, it's nothing. For a small producer, it's a huge investment.
            Say you wanna put a new product out there. Just the bureaucracy costs involving going from 0 to "I can sell it on the internet" can be upwards 100k eur for something as simple as a microcontroller based widget. For you small guy in a garage, is a gigantic gamble. For Siemens, it's pocket change. So usually Siemens buys your design instead and no disruption in the market happens. Big guys keep getting bigger.

        Yes. Robots are getting cheaper and cheaper and for a lot of applications you do not need a lot of accuracy, in fact as I said most of the robots they bought refurbished from an industrial equipment supplier.

        >what is the minimum revenue or production numbers that are required to think about automation?

        Cost and companies being afraid of return on investment. Robots have gotten a lot cheaper over the past 10 years or so. A decent robot cell with a robot, controllers, a couple fixtures, tooling, installation and programming, is about $70-80k depending on what you want it to do. Not that long ago that $70-80k would've only gotten you the robot and maybe the controller.

          Those are kosher robots and shitty general purpose automations, there are more affordable options around (from a technical point of view because it seems the israelites also wienerblock this).

          We were contracted out by that company, we had no input on how they were to manage their company. Though I do agree they did wait a little too long to upgrade.

      That's a consequence of your fellow lying gay Black folks not smoothly transition to this as it became available decades ago and reallocating the workers into other activities.

      The funny thing is that at some point whatever bigger bike manufacturer exists will make that plan close down. AI and robotics are too competent, most of production could be centralized in like a decade.

      Only because they have access to money printing, the amount of bloat and chaos those companies have is huge.

      Also there is the AI talking point every homosexual israelite has to repeat here despite it being rarely used in those applications (and using it won't help too much either).

      Based. Every job I've had, I've been promoted to tard wrangler, because management recognizes sentience.

      Here's what I noticed: The thing about 20% of people doing 80% of the work is absolutely true. It actually was spread across demographics too. There were old women who would outperform young men. Fat people who outperformed fit people. That said, the useful employees did skew to toward young, male, and White.

      Many people are just warm bodies. They just want to exist without doing much except drinking beer and watching TV.

          What companies did you set up production lines for?

          I am a Work Bike Manufacturer with a product line that I am looking to incorporate with a robotic frame welding process

          I have a trike that takes three jigs to put together

          One to make the front, one to make the platform and rear drivetrain housings and then one to put them together with a few welds

          The bike trailers I make are also to be robotically welded together

          I have a few models of that as well

          Ideally I would be looking for a set-up and programming service like you offer

          That would take me into the productivity model I need to complete a minimum of production orders that I am planning to send out to distributors, bike stores, and in rental hubs

          Later moving to mass produce them with expanded manufacturing lines for commercial fleet retrofit orders from large companies that deliver and want a last mile vehicle

      Family owned as in not publicly traded. They've got 3 other factories iirc. And no, none of it was "custom".

They bought most of their robots used and refurbished. iirc cost per unit was like $2,000
      You don't get into the $100,000 territory unless you're buying a frick huge custom robot with a warranty.

          I don't actually install them myself. I help program the model, do the cell layout work, initial calibration, then program them, and do test runs and make adjustments accordingly.
          I do contracting on the side, one of the local automobile plants has me teach new apprentices about robots, and sometimes I get called up to do maintenance on the robots and recalibration/program adjustments. Contrary to popular belief it's not all just white collar work. One minute I'm designing a fixture in AutoCAD or running a program through a simulator, next thing I know I'm beating on a robot with a deadblow hammer. But I like it, doing nothing but manual labor sounds like hell, and doing nothing but staring at a computer all day also sounds like hell. It's a nice mix between the two that gives me an excuse to get off my ass when I get sick of sitting around.

                They're not butthurt over you having a career or even that you automate jobs away (which is rational and necessary), but that you gloat over the misery of the people you are replacing. You just sound like an unpleasant character. Karma isn't real of course, so you will be very rich and have a good life, but don't confuse one thing for another.

                Do you think that Henry Ford or any of the Men who worked under him gloated over the misery of horsebreeders or cartwrights? Most of the people that got replaced were skilled welders whom I'm sure found a decent job not long after. One thing you need to realize is people can be overly emotional in the moment to the point that it seems irrational. Can't really say the same for horsebreeders or cartwrights, many of them had no recourse but to work a basic labor job in the mines, in agricultural positions, or (ironically) in a factory.

                And what are tolerances like having replaced the manual machines? I presume they still use manual for ad-hoc repair?

                +/- 0.1mm tolerances are possible with the robots. They did keep a few machines around for basic repair or machining tasks.

                I didn't read the thread before posting this but I assumed it was the same homosexual discussion that began as:

                see
                [...]

                You know one of the electives I took in college was basic psychology and one of the patterns I'm seeing ITT is the propensity for butthurt losers to wish that the successful and established lose everything they have through some event they have no control over.
