RobotWorx Partners with In-House Solutions Inc.

Robot integrator RobotWorx and Robotmaster software distributor In-House Solutions Inc. are working together to provide customers with the best solutions to challenging applications.

Industrial robotics company RobotWorx and Robotmaster software distributor In-House Solutions recently established a sales and integration partnership. The two companies will work collaboratively, with RobotWorx building and supporting robotic workcells, and In-House Solutions programming and supporting the Robotmaster software.

Robotmaster is a software package for programming 6-axis industrial robots designed to give users a unique, CAD/CAM-integrated solution for specific applications such as robotic milling, machining, and spray coating.
"We had received a number of leads regarding offline programming for complex geometries and needed a solution," said RobotWorx President Jarrod Bichon. "We were already aware of Robotmaster's stellar track record. Now, we have the opportunity to become more educated about the ins and outs of the product and broaden our offering to customers."
"The Robotmaster Team at In-House Solutions is extremely excited about the partnership between our two companies," said In-House Solutions Sales Manager Greg Culp. "RobotWorx is one of the premier robot integrators and has an outstanding reputation in the robot industry. Our companies complement each other very well and the opportunities for success are endless."
The Robotmaster software package is compatible with KUKA, Motoman, FANUC, and other major robot brands. This makes the product even more useful for RobotWorx, an authorized integrator and reseller for all three.
RobotWorx has established a Robotmaster demo cell featuring a KUKA KR60 HA robot in its Marion, Ohio integration facility. Here, RobotWorx staff and interested customers can see exactly how the off-line programming system works and the level of precision Robotmaster is capable of providing.
"Since we had a large Kuka robot at our disposal, it was easy to make this a dedicated unit for the RobotMaster software,\" said Bichon. \"We\'re very pleased with the software package. Robotmaster has effectively expanded RobotWorx' integration capabilities, especially when it comes to milling.\"

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
