ROBOTIQ LAUNCHES DoF A COMMUNITY FOR ROBOTICS PROFESSIONALS

DoF is meant as a medium for sharing ideas and solving automation problems. “We realized that the know-how is locked in the head of automation engineers who can’t talk to each other because they are far apart, focused on making their factory run,” explains Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq.

Québec City, Canada, September 12, 2016 - Robotiq launches DoF, an open community where industrial automation professionals share their know-how and get answers to accelerate their robotics projects.

DoF is meant as a medium for sharing ideas and solving automation problems. "We realized that the know-how is locked in the head of automation engineers who can't talk to each other because they are far apart, focused on making their factory run," explains Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq. "This is why we created this online community, to bring industrial automation pros together so they can help each other with their automation projects and stop reinventing the wheel on their own."
Members of the community say the platform accelerates their robotics projects, from design and integration to programming and troubleshooting: "Having access to free valuable resources and insights from professionals in all fields related to robotics made the implementation of our various automation projects faster and easier" says Matt Bush, COO at Hirebotics.
The DoF community is now open to the public, visit it on dof.robotiq.com.

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

Space, or the lack of it, can be a challenge when placing barcodes or Data Matrix symbols on components. However, readable barcodes are critical to component traceability, time/date stamping, work in progress (WIP) tracking, and recall management. MicroHAWK UHD smart cameras can decode very small and difficult-to-read barcodes, including Data Matrix two-dimensional (2D) symbols and direct part marks (DPM). Users can rely on the MicroHAWK UHD to read symbols with an x-dimension almost invisible to the naked eye!
