24/7 web app monitors robot cell and provides data to increase productivity
Québec City, Canada, September 12, 2017 - Robotiq launches the first software product to optimize Universal Robots performance. Insights is a web application that takes robot cell deployment to another level, letting users find out how productive their robotic operation was in any given period of time.
"Manufacturing engineers face a lack of visibility into their robot's operational performance," explains Robotiq CTO Jean-Philippe Jobin. If you ask them how productive was their robot today, they do not have what it takes to answer. Insights gives real-time performance metrics, advanced optimization analytics and alerts. Altogether, this data allows engineers to react quickly to any weakness and reduce operational costs."
Built for Universal Robots, Insights provides key performance indicators allowing manufacturing engineers to improve their product quality and increase process efficiency. Automation engineers get the data to optimize robot performance by reducing cycle time and diagnosing failures.
Production managers see the long term trend in robot performance to improve planning and overall productivity. Insights Dashboard also gives the operators real-time status and alerts to simplify the production. Backed with valuable robot performance data from Insights, ROI will become crystal clear and help manufacturers plan future automation projects.
