How to Select the Best Motor for a Jointed Arm Robot

There is a seemingly endless selection of DC, stepper, and servo motor products on the market, each with their own advantages and drawbacks. Going into the selection process having answered a few key questions will vastly simplify the selection process.

Robot-Ready Conveying Optimizes Pick-and-Place

From a machine builder's point of view, robots can solve many processing and packaging line problems, but the chosen material handling systems supplying the line can reduce the robot's performance.

Closing the AI Ambition - Execution Gap in Manufacturing

While most manufacturing companies have begun to explore the next step in automation technology -- artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) -- a large gap exists between where they want their organizations to be with AI technology and where they are.

10 Things to Consider When Exploring Offline Robot Programming Software Solutions

Offline Robot Programming (OLP) takes the programming "offline" - away from the teach pendent / robot cell - allowing the user to generate the robotic code from their computer without having to take the robot out of production to generate it.

How a Team United in Just 18 Months to Overhaul How America Destroys Its Most Dangerous Chemical Weapons

CRG Automation and its team of engineers - with specialties such as mechanical, electrical and controls -began devising custom engineered solutions, often incorporating advanced robotics.

Calculating the ROI of Offline Robot Programming Software

Capital investments in advanced manufacturing environments require careful consideration, especially if that investment is for a new process or technology. If you are looking at investing in OLP here are some things to consider about the potential return on investment (ROI).

How to Find the Right Damper for Your Application

Industrial Dampers cushion vibrations in machines. In order to fulfill this task perfectly, there are a large number of different types. To find the right variant for your own application, the load cases should be examined in detail.

Important Considerations When Implementing AMR Solutions

When implementing mobile robotics solutions in a facility, it's important to consider strategies for ensuring stability, seamless interaction with people, accurate detection of obstacles, and set up a successful emergency evacuation plan.

Is your OLRP Implementation Process SMART?

For any Offline Robot Programming solution to be effective, the virtual robot cell set up in the software must be identical to the existing physical robot cell. OCTOPUZ refers to this process as "implementation".

Digital Transformation and the Smart Factory

The Smart Factory at Wichita (TSF@W) provides a risk-free environment for companies to explore the art of the possible and gain insight into the latest technologies through an immersive, hands-on experience.

Understanding Human-machine Interfaces (HMIS)

An HMI could be used to replace physical inputs (such as buttons or switches) with virtual buttons on a user interface (UI). This can offer greater functionality and flexibility than a fixed control panel.

The Latest Evolution of High-Performance Laser-Guided Vehicles Streamlines Pallet Movement in Deep-Freeze Warehouses

Technology advances in automated deep-freeze distribution have provided advantages for increased throughput, system uptime and a better ROI. Laser-guided vehicles, playing a pivotal role in this sub-zero technological evolution, have recently taken a quantum leap forward.
