How Technology has Advanced Mobile Robots and Improve Food Processing


Tuesday 18-July-2017 13:00-13:30

Robots are being increasingly used to improve efficiency and productivity in manufacturing processes. While many people are familiar with fixed mounted robots, there have also been significant advances in mobile robot technology recently.

Mobile robots are able to carry loads between locations, and can do so 24/7 without rests or breaks. As the loads they convey can be hazardous, heavy or in hard-to-reach places, it’s highly desirable to automate this common but mundane and sometimes dangerous task.

Redevelopment of aquatic centre creates quite a splash

The Ruth Everuss Aquatic centre at Lidcombe in Sydney’s west has been closed since June 2015 for extensive redevelopment. However, the reopening in April 2017, unveiled a site that had been transformed into a state of the art facility.

While the transformation has undoubtedly been significant, great care has been taken to preserve the heritage status of the facility, which was built in 1959. Some of the existing buildings were demolished, but many have remained or been refurnished, examples include the grandstand, stanchion and shelters around the main 50m pool, which will include a ninth lane and ramp for wheelchair access. While many new facilities were built, it was mandated that the look of any new construction fit in with the existing facilities.

Sydney automation company hatches new plan to boost poultry production

Poultry producers have been using incubators to hatch eggs for more than a century.

It’s a method that dates to the early Egyptians.

A modern incubator is a device that aims not just to simulate but exceed the results from natural avian incubation. They create the perfect environment and condition for an egg to incubate because it regulates the factors such as temperature, humidity, and turning the eggs when necessary to hatch them.
