QUESTION

Can Atlantic Canada’s Labour Shortage be Solved by Robotics?

Written by Nathan Field, Enginuity’s Robotics and Automation Manager

Nathan Field our lead and guru Mechatronics Engineer takes a moment to discuss the solutions to such a challenging issue facing our Atlantic community. He also dives into detail about options at different ROI levels with keen insight into the competitive advantage.

Our Industry 4.0 Offerings

 

R

Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) and Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs)

can revolutionize your production line, shipping department, and warehouse.

AMRs are programmed to complete a task and will find the most intelligent path to get there. (Have a Roomba? Then you have an AMR!) Their versatility and reduced reteaching time make them the state-of-the-art in robotics.

AGVs follow a defined path, and can include a lift or conveyor, allowing you to link your entire production line.

R

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

is the key to predictive analytics and predictive maintenance.

AI creates an algorithm to calculate and determine a machine’s healthy state.

The health of your machine can then be monitored and alerts issued at the first sign of trouble.

R

Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT (IIoT)

includes any machine, device, or appliance capable of passing data into a large network.

Today, plants are full of machines that need to be connected for optimal functioning.

Our automation experts make sure you have access to and can use your data to increase efficiency, improve quality, and anticipate problems.

Smart systems mean your IoT devices enable machine learning and continuous process improvements.

R

Condition Monitoring Packages

are intelligent add-ons to legacy equipment.

Monitor machine health, efficiency, and power consumption without changing the machine.

Sensors feed data to a dashboard you can monitor from wherever you are.

R

SCADA Solutions (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition)

allow you to monitor the entire pulse of your large operation from one screen.

SCADA systems gather and analyze real-time data to monitor plants and equipment.

Industries including telecommunications, water and waste control, energy, oil and gas refining, and transportation use SCADA for enterprise-level dashboarding and control.

Case Study

Doubling Food Production with Automation

IMO Foods in Yarmouth, NS has streamlined the packaging process of their popular Kersen Canned Fish, using Enginuity’s Robotics & Automation Team, capturing all that is Industry 4.0. With Enginuity’s Can Conveyance and Palletizing system, IMO can now double their production length to meet market demand with this food automation solution.

Case Study

Automating Sea Cucumber Grading with Industry 4.0

Ocean Pride Fisheries had a need to solve picking sea cucumbers accurately, efficiently, and with a low tolerance so they could move the labour force to another production line. New robotic vision sorting system designed, built, installed, and commissioned.

Rhodri Armour, Program Manager

For Industry 4.0

 

Enginuity has been Rhodri’s professional home for almost 8 years. His 2009 ski-vacation in British Columbia turned into emigration by-way-of a job in IT, but the draw of engineering was too strong and his journey with Enginuity resulted from a move to Nova Scotia with his wife in 2013.

Rhodri previously worked in UK in R&D for an automotive OE (Avon Automotive), and as an Application Engineer for a servohydraulic testing and motion simulation system manufacturer (Servotest Systems) before returning to studies.

Educated the UK at the University of Bath with an undergraduate Masters degree in Innovation and Engineering Design (Mechanical Engineering) (2002) and again a few years later with a PhD at the Centre for Biomimetic and Natural Technologies (2010).

Proficient in problem solving, inventiveness, process assessment, project management and additive manufacturing.
