The Amazing Minds of Infants Just what goes on inside the minds of babes? Quite a lot as it turns out. In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Julie and I peer inside the infant brain to learn about their enhanced state of consciousness and innate knowledge of reality. Plus find out what baby brains have to do with alien abductions? Along those lines, be sure to check out Julie's work over at the "Parentables" blog, our episode on alien abduction experiences and this excellent Skeptic Magazine article.
The Robotic SUBTA system is also flexible and precise since it handles any mold configuration (single or double row) and provides quick changeover using quick change tooling. This programmable built-in operator pendant has stored recipes and menu selection for patterns and allows for on-the-fly adjustments. The 20-part recipe keeps part data such as part description pick, place locations, and vacuum pattern.
The Motion Controls Robotic SUBTA has received a positive reception from the employees because of the ease of use and nearly flawless performance of these robots. To ward off any concerns from employees about potential layoffs within the plant, the company presented the new system as an opportunity to ramp up its technology and that new business was waiting for the company if the technology was added.
It combines the automatic feeder with the automatically moving electric screwdriver to realize the complementary supply of screws and the locking, which greatly improves the production efficiency and saves manpower. Once the screwdriver is lifted after locking the screw, the automatic feeder will send the other screw to the Escape of the automatic feeder. The screwdriver head absorbs the screw and the robot can automatically move according to the coordinate point and tighten it. This is particularly suitable for multi-station workpieces of the same specification. 

The company contacted Motion Controls Robotics to ask them to help develop a solution that would automate its bottle take out process and alleviate its safety and ergonomic issues due to repetitive stress injuries. They also wanted to create a solution that would reduce scrap, which ultimately would help increase sales without having to produce more product than it did in the past.
Motion Controls Robotics’ created the Robotic SUBTA system, a pre-engineered robotic system designed for PET blow-molded bottle handling. The system uses different robotic units depending on the type of machine that is being unloaded. The Robotic SUBTA system grabs and sets the bottles on a conveyor, standing up, acting as a takeaway unit. The system provides increased throughput due to high reliability and uptime and cycle times faster than most mold machine rates. The Robotic SUBTA system also requires a minimum of floor space, a high priced commodity in a manufacturing facility.

The Robotic SUBTA systems have also created unexpected improvements in the manufacturing process. The company noted a net reduction of 1/2 percent of scrap, adding 500,000 bottles per year to its output simply by virtue of not dropping the bottles. Since fewer products need to be reground, the company also saves money considering the cost to run the regrind machines has gone up greatly as the cost of oil increases. In addition, this reliable process has cut the employee bending movements by 50 percent.
We are proud to say that we have not lost a single employee after adding the new robotic systems. Instead of layoffs, employees have been allocated to other parts of the facility,” said the plant manager. “This success has created new business which in turn creates secure jobs. Overall, the addition of the Robotic SUBTA systems has created a more positive and productive environment within our facility. The plastics manufacturer rates the Robotic SUBTA as a great improvement that has been very reliable and nearly flawless in operation.
About the Author: Robert Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for the smallest of small-town newspapers before finally becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He’s currently a senior writer at HowStuffWorks and has co-hosted the science podcast Stuff to Blow Your Mind since its inception in 2010. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling with his wife Bonnie, discussing dinosaurs with his son Bastian and crafting the occasional work of fiction.
