Vention, the digital manufacturing platform for factory equipment, successfully certified its modular and customizable range extender (7th-axis) for the Universal Robots family of collaborative robots.

Vention, the digital manufacturing platform for factory equipment, successfully certified its modular and customizable range extender (7th-axis) for the Universal Robots family of collaborative robots.


Users of the Vention cloud-based machine design platform can now design and order custom range extenders for Universal Robots in a matter of days.

Suitable for UR3, UR5, and UR10, including the e-Series, Ventions range extender connects seamlessly with the Universal Robots controller. Users can program their range extender from the UR teach pendant, leveraging Ventions URCap for linear motion.

Ventions deep software development expertise is fully reflected in this URCap release, which includes speed and acceleration control, absolute and relative motion control, and homing sequence features.

More benefits and features of Ventions range extender for Universal Robots:-

Fully customizable length, height, mounting orientation, and number of axes, to suit a broad range of applications.
Driven by Ventions plug-and-play linear motion technology, powered by Thomson Industries.
Ships with everything needed for deployment, including all required sensors, wires, connectors and URCap software.
Seamlessly integrates with the Universal Robots controller via Ventions URCap for linear motion, eliminating the need for complex integration and third-party software.
Available in several configurations within Ventions public library, all of which are ready to be customized for specific use cases.
Ships in 5-7 days with a pre-assembled linear axis.
"The addition of a 7th axis to our library of public assemblies, along with hundreds of other pieces of robot equipment, is part of our ongoing commitment to building an indispensable platform for anyone looking to deploy robot cells quickly and easily," says Patrick Halde, VP Sales and Business Development at Vention.

SICK, Inc. - Low-Cost LiDAR: Higher Technology That's Easy to Use

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
