Automation offers tremendous benefits, with it proven to lower cost by 63% and defect rates by over 70% compared to manual processes. But even in factories where robots offer its greatest value, only one in ten automatable tasks is automated. There are two distinct reasons for this:
Here at Augmentus, we are proud to introduce to you the industry’s leading full-stack and code-free robotic automation platform. This solution addresses the aforementioned problems through the following industry breakthrough:
The current process when embarking on a robotic inspection system project is laborious, time consuming and most importantly – it’s costly.
To give a realistic illustration: for most businesses which do not have an in-house specialist team, outsourcing a robotic specialist will take approximately a month to program the robotic arms. Similarly, outsourcing a machine vision (MV) specialist will take another month for MV programming. An additional week may be given for the testing of the algorithm.
An accumulation of these seemingly negligible periods of time actually amounts to an astonishing 63 days just for development purposes. Furthermore, hefty extra costs goes into hiring these robotic and MV specialists.
With Augmentus, your non-technical staff can take an estimated 5 days to program the robotic arms. Upon uploading images into the Augmentus Web Portal, it takes about 2 days to test and finalize the algorithm for deployment. As such, it only takes a total of 7 days to develop and with the help of your non-technical staff, there are no additional hefty costs incurred.
I’m impressed. It is faster than anything else by several orders of magnitude and they are starting to add more advanced functions.

Automation has been the realm of expensive, highly-trained experts. Until now. The Augmentus platform enables any non-technical user to program both industrial and collaborative robots, either for repurposing or redeployment purposes. If you have plans to implement a robotic solution, Augmentus drastically lowers the cost as you program robotic automation in minutes, thereby weaning dependency on expensive specialists.
Time is money; continually look for ways to do things faster and better

Automotive factories have long been using robots. As car companies progress towards automation, they are increasingly relying on robots, especially collaborative robots (cobots), to improve their productivity. For example, the BMW’s Spartanburg site used cobots to take over installing the inside of car doors with moisture prevention and sound insulation. Nissan also used robots to […]

In today’s age of automation, Oxford Economics, a UK-based research firm, estimates that 20 million jobs will be wiped out by robots globally by 2030. While this may be bad news for some, it also means that more jobs would be created in the robotics and automation industry. Roles such as robotics technician or robotics […]
