Automation of Manufacturing Now Within Reach via Provision for Robotics' One-Stop RFQ

An automation consulting firm that offers manufacturers the ability to obtain multiple quotations to fulfill their automation needs by submitting a single request for quotations.

HOUSTON, July 18, 2012 -- There was once a time when the automation of manufacturing seemed way beyond the reach of most companies. That's no longer the case, according to Provision for Robotics, an automation consulting firm that offers manufacturers the ability to obtain multiple quotations to fulfill their automation needs by submitting a single request for quotations.


"Smaller manufacturers have historically felt that automation was out of their price range," said John Mitchell, founder and president of Provision for Robotics. "However, the cost of automation has fallen significantly over the last few years, and the smaller players are now able to reap the benefits. A typical ROI for a completed automation project can be less than one year."

After analyzing trends in the marketplace for small manufacturers, Mitchell discovered that there was a growing need for manufacturers to optimize production with automation, which led to his founding of Provision for Robotics.

"I'm not aware of any other business that offers what we do," said Mitchell. "There are a lot of providers that offer services to manufacturers looking to automate, but it's a biased view because they only offer one solution -- theirs."

Mitchell explained that since his company is not contracted to any one of the many automation technology manufacturing companies, it is able to supply clients with answers to their questions about the benefits and liabilities of an automation application for their business.

"We can give manufacturers more than one proposal to perform their automation project since a wide range of solution providers accept proposals through our website. This can lead to some competitive bids," Mitchell continued.

Automation solution providers may request to be added to Provision for Robotics' premier list of providers at http://www.provinc.net .

"Taking this step will help providers reduce their cost of sales, while receiving requests to create quality automation solutions for our clients," Mitchell concluded.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
