Richboro,PA, March 12, 2015 -- In-House Solutions will feature its innovative OCTOPUZ robotic programming software during Automate 2015, scheduled for March 23-26 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Visitors to booth #848 will discover the versatility of OCTOPUZ and its endless possibilities, from robotics simulation to deburring and PLC validation.


Automate is the largest solutions-based showcase of automation technologies in North America, and is expected to draw as many as 30,000 attendees from a wide range of industries. Organized by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), this year's event will include hundreds of exhibitors displaying the latest in automation, robotics, and vision and motion control technologies.

"OCTOPUZ allows us to show the industry how we can provide the best in automation solutions using simulation-based software," said Greg Culp, Robotics Sales Manager at In-House Solutions. "It gives us the ability to visually describe and 3D animate proposed solutions tailored to the customer's specific automation needs."

The Automate 2015 trade show was recently named one of the "Top 10 Manufacturing Shows" in the United States. New and returning exhibitors have already secured more than 150% of exhibit floor space compared to the last show in 2013.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

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.
