Some facilities struggle to achieve a substantial return on investment for their automation initiatives. Remote control systems can change that by making the most of robots' significant advantages while mitigating their biggest challenges.
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.
If you have added manufacturing robots to your facility, you are already aware of the advantages they provide and the ROI. Robots do have a downside, however, when it comes to programming-most of the time, they must be offline to be updated or programmed.
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.
Choosing the right automation partners led Greene Tweed to quickly develop, integrate and install a more flexible automated material removal cell.
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.
ARC Specialties designed and built a turnkey solution for 3D robotic plasma cutting with the help of essential offline programming tools. With the right partners by your side, no challenge is too steep.
Many companies make mesh network products for home Wi-Fi systems. Those are indeed valid and popular applications, but there are ample opportunities to use mesh networks for robotics, too.
With solutions that enable intuitive and harmonized programming of robots from a wide range of manufacturers using pre-developed programming templates, effort and costs are reduced considerably. This makes their use attractive for more and more companies.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced changes to our daily lives, but when it comes to technology, not all changes have been unwelcomed. In many ways, shifting the way we live has accelerated the use of technology to a level that we were only beginning to dip our toes into.
Robots are revolutionizing the visual arts by providing artists with new creative techniques, says Albert Nubiola, CEO of RoboDK, as an exhibition of robot-made paintings opens in the prestigious Ben Brown Fine Arts gallery, London.
Given the proliferation of warehouses, distribution centers, direct to consumer (D2C) business models, fleets of AMRs, questioning the validity of innovation is worthy of examination.
RoboMaker extends the most widely used open-source robotics software framework, Robot Operating System (ROS), with connectivity to cloud services.
RAD solutions are used in a variety of markets for critical infrastructure like corporate headquarters, healthcare campuses, higher education campuses, event venues and government facilities.
Universal Logic announced today a new version of its signature Neocortex artificial intelligence product designed for do-it-yourself engineers. Neocortex DIY software allows engineers to configure and deploy AI-based robot cells for variable picking

Simpler, stronger, and more precise. ATI Industrial Automation has developed a series of Manual Tool Changers that provides a cost-effective solution for quickly changing tools by hand. They feature a unique design that combines high strength, excellent repeatability, and a patent-pending screw-cam locking mechanism with multiple fail-safe features, which resists vibration and prevents loosening. These robust and compact Manual Tool Changers can handle payloads up to 80 pounds (36 kg) and pass pneumatics and electrical signals.
