  • Shake hands with a robot
    cutting tools and applied it to robot grippers. But the approach is proving to be both costly and ineffective. Unlike off-the-shelf cutting tools, grippers have customized jaws. The trial-and-error process used to make them is both labor intensive and difficult to scope in advance. Costs tend to balloon
  • Vision-guided Robot System Trims Parts
    Using a robot to trim flashing from an injection-molded-plastic part is not a new application. However, when the robot is being fed from six different lines, each with different dimensions and features-including some with metal cores inside the plastic-cost-effectively guiding a water-jet cutting
  • Convenient Robot or Attractively Priced Spindle Gripper?
    Modern machining centers are used for machining of workpieces with maximum feed rates, minimum tool changing times and optimum cutting speeds. In comparison with these parameters, manual tool changing seems like a spare wheel on a Formula 1 racecar. It slows down the entire system.
  • Modular Fixturing Halves Robot Welding Cycle Time
    in Schenectady, NY. As a contract manufacturer servicing a number of key industrial businesses, this progressive company faces expanding customer requirements that keep it on the cutting edge of technology. Many of Super Steel's jobs rely on specialized, dedicated fixtures. In some cases, the customer
  • Case Study: Vision Guided Robotics

  • Show-biz bots: The Next Act
    Advanced servomotors and software are making entertainment robots smarter and more capable than ever before. Max the anthropomorphic robot mirrors the moves of a human operator fitted with a sensored suit. Max can also be programmed to do a canned routine to music. A closeup of Max's arm reveals
  • One controller does it all
    manufacturers try to avoid separate controllers for different functions on a production machine. The preferred approach is a complete automation platform that handles drives, robot movements, CNC path control, visualization, and communication networks, among other tasks. In the past, this wasn't a realistic
