This is the second of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.
Educational Resources Kits Covering Factory Automation, Linear Motion and Mobile Engineering Available from Bosch Rexroth
Packaged on convenient USB drives, each kit provides useful technical information and content relevant to its core topic.
A force‐controlled robot can be programmed to mimic the movements of a human arm, applying search patterns to find the correct position to assemble a given part.
A robot system, fully deployed is going to give two to three-hundred percent return on investment per year.
Even 1 mm of misalignment between the robot's end of arm tool and the position of the parts in the table could cause costly damage.
Ethernet cabling has been standardized. The cables for an Ethernet-enabled Auto ID reader are common with all standard Ethernet equipment.
Cost-efficient solutions combined with high standards of hygiene is a key concept in automated food production. Product, flavour and packaging variety as well as set-up times and system modularity play a decisive role too.
A properly selected current transducer for an application can easily give 25+ years of service. By acknowledging the details behind the data sheet, better performing applications and more robust designs are possible.
Bridging the gap between ease of use and performance, the QX Hawk features a high resolution modular optical zoom system, aggressive X-Mode decoding, and simple plug and play connectivity.
The implementation of ASIC based current transducers opens up functionality that the traditional discrete component transducers could never achieve.
With home-grown innovation and ABB robots, MPI, Inc. has discovered the secret to incredible increases in productivity and quality for today's most competitive foundries.
Dimensional measurement is an essential step in the manufacture of Hexin's stamped parts in order to ensure that each workpiece meets required tolerances.
The KA device's ability to lock to center and also off center is critical to this application. That ability, coupled with the device's reliability and repeatability, makes for a great solution in this application.
With production rates of 3,200 pieces per hour for a single production line and an acceptance rate of virtually 100% required by mobile phone and hard drive manufacturers (one defective piece per 120,000), 100% inspection of the components is necessary to ensure that all orders will be accepted by the end customer.
Robotic sensory technology is now able to act in the same manner that a person does, adapting to the food manufacturing environment and utilizing vast amounts of information to give us some of the safest food in the world.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
