This is the second of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.
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 robots 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.
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 Hexins 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 devices 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.
The system keeps up with their presses, provides a consistent finish, and alleviates their operators even from having to select the right part program.
Experience shows that it is not the robots that are the biggest energy consumers, but the entire peripheral equipment.
