Get Connected with Robots at the MCRI Open House July 23 & 24

Visit Motion Controls Robotics' 20th Anniversary Open House to see how robots are transforming your process.

Motion Controls Robotics, Inc (MCRI) is hosting an Open House on Thursday and Friday, July 23 & 24, 2015 to celebrate their 20th year developing quality robotic systems for the manufacturing, warehousing, and distributing industries. MCRI believes it is important for manufacturers to explore how robotics can transform their process through cost reduction and by freeing up employees to accomplish more important tasks. The Open House will help to serve this purpose by offering hands-on activities that show attendees the best way to integrate robotics.


Manufacturers in the area are invited to attend the Open House either day from 9am - 4pm at MCRI's newly renovated facility at 1500 Walter Avenue in Fremont, Ohio. Thursday's activities will also feature a morning ribbon cutting ceremony performed by the Chamber of Commerce of Sandusky County. This ribbon cutting signifies the growth and recent expansion of the company.

The open house schedule will include seminars about popular robotic applications such as Pick-Pack-Pal, Bin Picking & Vision, End of Arm Tooling, and Robot Simulations. The seminars will be an hour long and include both programmers and engineers from FANUC and Motion Controls Robotics. MCRI will offer CEUs for the seminars for anyone that needs engineering credits.

During the facility tour, a variety of new robotic technologies and innovations will be shown with robot cell demonstration areas. These cells will display such things as 3D area scanning, iRVision, robotic case packing and palletizing.

"The robotics industry is growing year after year and it is becoming essential for American manufacturers to keep up with the innovations and technologies available to improve their manufacturing, warehousing, and distributing processes," explains Scott Lang, President of Motion Controls Robotics.

Visit the Open House on July 23 or 24 from 9am - 4pm to learn more about robotics for manufacturing. Watch the invitation video and read about the seminars and robot cells that will be presented at the open house by visiting Motion Controls Robotics Open House webpage.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
