How to Successfully Automate Packaging in Low-volume, High-mix Production

Recent advances in robotic programming have reduced the implementation time of robotic automation to a point where even small and medium sized manufacturers with high-mix, low-volume production can get a robotic packaging application up and running in just a few hours

Have You Looked at Automating Fabrication Tasks in the Past? Why Didn't You?

We recently hosted a webinar titled: "Unlock Value-Stream Productivity with Robotic Cutting". During this webinar, we polled audience members. Our first question: Have you looked at automating fabrication tasks in the past. Most respondents said yes, they had, in fact, explored this.

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.

Offline Robot Programming for Polishing Aircraft Engine Lipskins

In 2020, McStarlite invested in automation by integrating a KUKA robot coupled with Robotmaster offline robot programming (OLP) software, to perform the lipskin polishing application.

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.

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".

How cameras deliver sharp images despite changing distances

How cameras deliver sharp images despite changing distances

IDS Imaging Development Systems offers a range of models, from a webcam-like camera in industrial quality to a tiny autofocus camera that weighs just12 grams. The 13 MP autofocus camera uEye XC closes the market gap between industrial cameras and webcams. Setting up and operating only requires a cable connection. After that, the autofocus camera immediately delivers high-resolution, detailed images and videos. With the optionally available, quickly exchangeable macro lens, users can easily shorten the minimum object distance of the camera. This makes it also suitable for close-up applications. Focus from a distance of just 10 cm. The uEye XS is even more compact and fits into almost any application with its size of just 26.4 x 23 x 21.7 mm. Thanks to its autofocus and 5 MP CMOS sensor, it delivers consistently sharp images and videos from a distance of just 10 cm. When it comes to image quality, natural color reproduction and harmonious contrast are also decisive factors. IDS has therefore equipped the uEye XS with many other practical automatic features familiar from consumer technology. This includes white balance, exposure and gain. As a result, it delivers the best possible result in every situation.
