Factory Automation-as-a-Service

Leading-edge automation at affordable costs

How FaaS Will Meet Current and Future Customer Demands

Many in the manufacturing sector face hardships due to the overwhelming consumer demand while relying on dated standards in automation. With today’s consumer, if they feel the purchase isn’t worth the wait, they will leave – especially when Amazon is one click away.

 

So how can you excel in a market that relies on the speed at which you can produce? 

 

The most innovative technology thus far has come in the form of factory automation as a service (FaaS). This industrial automation service has become a go to for companies looking for factory automation services to achieve Post-COVID demand. Process improvement is a major advantage as it leads to optimization of the manufacturing processes to make them more efficient, agile and flexible."

 

We pioneered the robots-as-a-service (RaaS) business model for robotic workcells, and through a factory automation-as-a-service agreement, RIOS provides world-class automation packaged with an all-inclusive service at zero upfront capital costs.

The actions and technology upstream and downstream are important to the success of integrating a RIOS robot. RIOS is a systems integrator, ensuring seamless technology integration throughout the process line.

What Are the Advantages
of Using FaaS Services

FaaS as a service is a cloud computing service that many depend on. This form of Industrial robotics centers around automation, manufacturing, quality control, and material handling. Developers use diagnostics to manage software applications, in-house or remotely, to fix issues without the hassle of a customer maintaining their infrastructure. At RIOS, we go beyond the average cloud computing system by utilizing features such as an aggregate of machines, sensors, 3rd party equipment, engineers, and cloud computing. 

FaaS service deploys robots based on a manufacturing company’s specifications for business models. At RIOS Intelligent Machines, our customers have experienced numerous financial benefits from automated systems by employing artificial intelligence-powered robotic workcells. This technology has proven to provide:

  • Greater insights, control, and data visibility across processes.

  • Allows stakeholders to make informed data-driven decisions.

  • Identify risks before they happen with a focus on reliability, safety and efficiency. 

  • Workcells work 1.5-2 times faster than human operators for less downtime.

  • Higher equipment efficiency.

  • Reduced product variability, scrap and rework.

  • Reliable workforce that can scale with consumer demand.

Types of Automation Systems

Fixed Automation

Fixed automation (or hard automation) was developed for any repetitive task in an industrial automation setting. This robotic service is best for smaller operations, such as within the food packaging industry.

Programmable Automation

Programmable automation is the use of programmable controllers to automate a process or operation. Programmable controllers can be programmed to perform a specific set of tasks, typically in a repetitive manner. Automation involves the use of programmable controllers to control and coordinate the operation of machinery and equipment.

Flexible Automation

Flexible automation is the use of computer-controlled manufacturing equipment that can be easily reconfigured to produce different items. This type of automation can be rapidly adapted to changing market conditions, which makes it an ideal solution for producers who need to respond quickly to customer demand.

Integrated Automation

Integrated automation is the overhaul of a manufacturing plant into a smart factory. It can be defined as an interactive system composed of intelligent machines and humans, where all the processes, from design to production and distribution, are planned, managed, and monitored in an integrated and interconnected way, by means of computer systems and software.

What Do You Need To Automate
Your Industrial Operations

The first step is to identify the ideal FaaS function as a service and company. Whether that be testing and assimilating the robotic work cells into existing production or using a custom mechanical solution.

 

The next phase is locating the perfect for FaaS strategy for your warehouses. FaaS utilizes digital storage that can be tinkered with from anywhere. Some popular cloud FaaS services include IBM Cloud Functions and Google Cloud Functions.

 

RIOS operates as FaaS solutions, and based on our customers the results are staggering.

By selecting us as your automation expert you will see results from the moment of installation. We offer zero CapEx and blitz deployment of robotic workcells, which will save you 40-60% savings from day one.
