General Purpose Programming Languages Are the Future for the Industrial Automation Industry and Are Overtaking Traditional PLC IEC 61131-3

IEC 61131-3 is the de facto standard in the industrial automation industry. It encompasses 5 different programming "languages". It makes designing simple programs straightforward and easy, and it does this very well.

Fuzzy Logic and CAIRE, on the Way to Automating the Painting Process

Fuzzy Logic Repplix software module allows a robotic system to learn trajectories in a single gesture without any specific training. With the help of a portable learning device, an operator can transfer their professional know-how to the robot by simply executing their task.

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.

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.

Making Robotic Programming Easier for the Fabrication Industry

OLRP provides a virtual environment to complete robot programming without taking the robot offline, thereby simplifying complex and time-consuming programming.

Fuzzy Logic Makes Robotics Agile at MBDA

The company wanted to robotise certain processes in small series or even single unit production, by allowing an operator with no programming skills to teach the robotic system, in just a few seconds.

Big Trends in Offline Programming Software for Robot

In the world of robotics, Offline Programming (OLP) has come a long way in a short time, and the global pandemic has jumpstarted more innovation. Industrial robots have evolved to collaborative robots ("cobots") that work side by side with their human counterparts.

The Future of Robot Programming - Industrial Robot Programming Tool Supports All Phases of Automation

Self-sustainability means, of course, that the working systems between robots and humans can continue to function, and grow, into the future. Indeed, for manufacturers a key signifier of growth is acquiring more machines that also have more capabilities.

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).

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".

Robot Control: Using Native Programming Language or an External Controller?

In service robotics as well as in academia, flexibly designable, use-case specific controllers are used, resulting in the respective robots to mainly act as actuators with low-level control systems but without individual intelligence.

Democratising Automation - the Benefits of No-code Robotics

The so-called 'no code' revolution in programming seeks to make the automation industry more autonomous and to democratize the use of robotics at the shop floor level.

Virtual to Reality: Delivering Accuracy to The Real World

It's easy to show a robot being programmed in a matter of minutes inside of a controlled virtual environment. But those programs need to translate to something useful in the real robot cell. The points that the robot will follow need to line up with the part properly.

Next-Generation Mobile Robots Fleet Management

By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.

Inertial Navigation Solution in Delivery Robots & Drones

Our focus was to provide a solution that offers ease of use and eliminate the customer's need to outsource components and programming. The integration of our MSCL, ROS, and several Open-Source API's, allows for the application of available and compatible software.

IDS NXT is the future: One platform, countless possibilities

IDS NXT is the future: One platform, countless possibilities

IDS NXT: a platform for a new generation of vision systems for industrial applications. It lays the groundwork to provide easy-to-use yet flexible complete systems that can be used to implement all steps of a vision solution. With IDS NXT ocean, a complete solution especially for AI-based image processing is now available. It allows to solve tasks where classic, rule-based image processing has reached its limits - without any programming effort.
