I hope everyone is having a great summer. Hopefully many of you have found the time to take in a baseball game, or two. Go Diamondbacks!
Speaking of baseball, have you heard the news? Machine vision was utilized to assist the homeplate umpire during the independent Atlantic League All Star Game, calling balls and strikes with astounding accuracy (no surprise to us!). It’s exciting to see a technology we regularly implement on the factory floor making waves in professional sports.
The foundation of the manufacturing industry strategy has long been the classic value chain which links together raw materials, producers, manufacturers, distributors, and (in the end) consumers, through a well-established commercial infrastructure characterized by a stable set of transactions.
Having the right equipment on the factory floor can make all the difference in the world, in terms of quality, speed to market, efficiency, cutting costs, and more. However, purchasing new equipment is not always feasible, or the right thing to do.
A couple of months ago, I shared with you the news about launching our new Product Solutions Group that relies on our decades of expert engineering of automation and robotics and manufacturing integration to provide a complete line of production and packaging solutions.
An enormous amount of thought and engineering goes into the process of end-of-line palletizing. In fact, ensuring products arrive at their given destination in top condition is one of the most critical parts of any manufacturing process.
Last January, we announced a new joint venture, with Semi of Sonora, Mexico, to combine resources and leverage the strengths of both companies to provide additional options and flexibility in automation and robotics to our customers. I am pleased to share with you that since its launch, the Delta-Semi joint venture has been doing very well.
