January 12, 2012 - EPSON Robots introduces version 5.4 of EPSON RC+ 5.0, a development environment now featuring the EPSON RC+ Simulator.


The latest version of the software now provides simulation and offline programming features that enable customers to create, design and run their SPEL+ programs at their desks. With EPSON RC+ version 5.4 users can begin developing and programming a functional robotic system prior to setting up equipment which is a great saving of valuable time.

The EPSON RC+ Simulator is a powerful addition to EPSON RC+ 5.0. Not only can users now create complete EPSON RC+ projects at their desks, they can also add obstructions so developers can identify potential collision points. Users can also save simulations of their applications as AVI movie files. This is extremely useful for showing robot motions to others. EPSON RC+ 5.0 works with standard PC's running Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.

The high performance Micro PowerDrive RC180 Controller comes standard with EPSON RC+ 5.0 which provides the ultimate experience in ease of use, compact size, and reliability.

Honeywell Intelligrated - Solve Loading Dock Challenges With Robotic Unloading

Challenges on the loading dock are characteristic of greater pressures from the rise of e-commerce. Loading and unloading freight from trailers, trucks and shipping containers are arduous, repetitive tasks plagued by high turnover. Even with regularly available staff, manually unloading freight and the constant lifting and twisting results in fatigue and inconsistent, declining productivity. Robotics capable of fully automating unloading tasks bring a new paradigm to the dock. High performance and flexibility push unloading from a labor-heavy, manual chore to an automated, refined process. High-performing DC workers can take more desirable positions, with relief from unpleasant work conditions. Management gets to replace uncertainty and staffing challenges with a reliable, automated process, with data to fuel continuous improvement.
