How an Autonomous Machine Vision System Increased Accuracy and Cut Waste

QA is a crucial step in every manufacturing process, regardless of industry size or sector. However, manual QA is not fit for the strict standards of Industry 4.0, since human inspectors may miss defects, especially when inspecting highly complex electrical items.

How Simulation Enhances the Offline Programming Experience

One of the strengths of offline programming (OLP) software is that it combines two powerful capabilities: simulation and programming. These two capabilities fit together like two perfect puzzle pieces when it comes to effectively programming robots offline.

HEIDENHAIN at IMTS 2022

Digital manufacturing starts with HEIDENHAIN. We will be showing software solutions that allows you to model your entire production chain, thus digitalizing your shop floor.

Automating Labor Dependent Tasks in High Mix/Low Volume Production

Action plastics maximizes OB7's flexibility to automate several different tasks within their high mix/low to mid volume production, freeing up operators and enabling a more flexible work environment.

Automating Industrial Inspection With Autonomous Mobile Robots

Through regular and thorough inspections, faults, wear and tear, and defects can be detected at an early stage and proactively acted upon, thus preventing production downtimes.

How Autonomous Robots Drive ROI in the Internet of Things

Rather than replace analog gauges and processes with an array of high cost and specialized connected sensors, forward-looking companies are deploying advanced robots that bring the sensors to where and when they're needed most.

Overcoming the Challenges of Automated Bin Picking

According to Universal Robots (UR), in 2019, around 38 per cent of the manufacturing labor force still moved parts manually between bins and manufacturing machines, rather than use industrial robots.

Industrial Robots Vs (or With?) Cobots

Apart from being unsafe for workers, and thus requiring specific safety measures within their working area, industrial robots are also exceedingly expensive and difficult to set up and redeploy.

Using Remote Operation to Help Solve Labor Shortage Issues in the Supply Chain

Our remotely operated forklifts allow operators to do their jobs from up to thousands of miles away. This is critically important to our customers, who have been dealing for decades with a labor shortage that recently has become even more acute than ever before.

Accommodating Market Volumes and Staying Competitive with Scalable Sensor Solutions

As companies continue to integrate more automation into their warehouses and DCs, the need for intelligent sensors to monitor and guide that equipment in a very safe, efficient, and productive manner will also increase.

Power Conversion Breakthroughs Fuel a Robot Revolution

Today's integrated power modules are addressing the demanding size, weight, power budgets and cost efficiencies required to move robots from factory, residential and commercial applications into a vast new landscape bounded only by the imagination.

The Next Big Thing in Manufacturing: XaaS to Boost Productivity and Revenue

The traditional portfolio mix of heavy hardware-orientation with associated software is transitioning to application and non-control software. The move to solutions combining hardware, software, and services is real.

Following the Path to AGV Safety

Although automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are, by definition, designed to run autonomously, they usually need to collaborate with people and therefore move, and react, in a safe, predictable manner.

Actuator Technology in Robotics Applications

LINAK offers easy integration with robotics applications through CANOpen. Our DC actuators match up with battery voltage to provide the complete linear motion system.

Wireless Charging Enables Industry 4.0 Implementation with Mobile Robots

The latest wireless charging solutions use techniques based on the principle of electromagnetic induction. When an alternating current is passed through an induction coil on the transmitter side, an oscillating magnetic field is created.
