Moduform furniture deploys smart robot to handle labor shortage

Faced with a shortage of skilled workers, Moduform, a furniture manufacturer for colleges, libraries, healthcare facilities, military bases, detention and public safety spaces, has invested in Rethink Robotics' Sawyer robot.
Moduform deployed Sawyer to fill the gap in its current labor shortage, create better jobs for existing employees and meet market demands in the furniture manufacturing industry.

"With Sawyer, we don't have to worry about finding people to complete these tasks. We can focus on recruiting workers for advanced work, such as cognitive jobs that leverage technology on the factory floor, and offer career advancement opportunities." said Josh Weismann, CEO at Moduform.

Data Commander MES Gateway Appliance
Move data between factory floor machines and Enterprise/IT level databases without a PC

The Data Commander ™ is an MES gateway appliance replacing PCs and OPC middleware on the factory floor for connecting factory automation with database servers. It is designed as industrial hardened firmware using point-and-click setup to deliver manufacturing intelligence in minutes versus days.

A high-speed, two-way gateway connection protects data integrity and isolates OT from IT networks. Auto-enumerated Inserts, Updates, Selects, and Stored Procedure calls communicate directly to the database, and native drivers provide easy access to all PLC memory areas.
