Robot Usage Creates Jobs

Robot Usage Creates Jobs One million high quality jobs will be created in the next five years due to increased use of robotics, concludes a recent study. Entitled "Positive Impact of Industrial Robots on Employment," the optimistic report says jobs will come in areas such as electronics, food, pharmaceuticals, and renewable energy. Robot usage increased dramatically in nearly every major industrialized country in the first eight years of this century, as did manufacturing employment. Three million current jobs are a direct result of the implementation of one million industrial robots world-wide.

Smaller Footprint for Robotic Welders

Smaller Footprint for Robotic Welders Industrial welding robots are now available in small sizes. One simple, quick-start robotic cell has a 500 A air-cooled welding torch. Point-and-click controller software solves the problem of automating small volumes with high diversity. The same software can serve big jobs too.

Right Gun for the Job

Right Gun for the Job Choosing the right gas metal arc welding (GMAW) gun for your robot can optimize your automation investment. Air-cooled GMAW guns are well-suited to high-volume applications of relatively thin materials. These guns are durable and easy to maintain, but if your application requires higher current welding, water-cooled guns are the way to go. If you need both, hybrid guns are available too.

Have You Called Your Robot Today?

Have You Called Your Robot Today? Industrial telecommuting allows users and systems engineers to update automation from anywhere. Remote solutions mean support can come immediately, saving time and money. This report from Control Design describes a variety of remote access methods, from hard-wired phone lines to cellular technology and smartphones, with varying degrees of security.

Wave to the Robot

Wave to the Robot "Natural user interfaces" — think Nintendo's Wii — are likely to be the next big step in machine control. Gesture-based control could be particularly useful for controlling industrial equipment in hazardous areas, keeping the operator safe at a distance from the machine. You can download a beta version of the software to create your own development kit. Watch how it works.

A Closer Watch over Drug Production

A Closer Watch over Drug Production The pharmaceutical industry's increased use of machine vision is driving improvements in machine vision technologies. Increased government regulations requiring pharmaceutical production and location information have driven the use of 2D data matrix codes, which necessitate image-based auto ID readers. Smart cameras, a step up the performance ladder, can be used for quality assurance. If the application requires color differentiation among similar colors or dealing with texture, systems can be custom designed.

Clearly, Calibration is Critical

Clearly, Calibration is Critical Line-scan cameras must be aligned and calibrated to give accurate inspection results. Custom-designed test patterns can be used for complicated applications such as multi-camera systems that inspect both sides of a product simultaneously. Once alignment is complete, images from different cameras can be combined without the need for image processing. For details on adjusting alignment, roll, and pitch as well as determining the exact edges of images, read this in-depth article.

Doing the Dangerous Jobs

Doing the Dangerous Jobs Military and battlefield robots can be deployed to perform night watch duties and perimeter security at locations such as airports and warehouses, under the control of an operator. Robots can inspect nuclear power plants, reducing the number of people who must enter the potentially dangerous containment area. Able to navigate indoors or outdoors, in harsh chemical or radioactive environments, and in mud, snow, and uneven terrain, these robots can do the dangerous jobs.

Ten Steps to Machine Safety

Ten Steps to Machine Safety Designing and engineering safety in from the beginning can save long-term costs. Ensure your supplier is including safety systems in the quote, understand risk assessments and choose the correct people (often experienced operators) to perform them. Educating every employee on safety is a key to a safe workplace. That's the advice of six safety experts who participated in a machine safety round table.

Interview Questions for Engineers Job interviews can be nerve-wracking; being prepared is your best confidence booster. Some questions specific to engineering jobs include things like: "Tell me about your greatest success in using the principles of logic to solve an engineering problem in your last job." Or this: "Give me an example of a time when you had to teach a skill to other engineers." You can find more engineering-specific questions here and some slightly different ones, with more explanation, here.

Qbo Likes Its Looks

Qbo Likes Its Looks "Oh, this is me. Nice." That's what Qbo (pronounced cue-bee-oh) said when looking at itself in the mirror. Programmed with facial and object recognition software, Qbo recognizes objects and responds to questions such as "Who is this?" This raises an interesting question: Does recognizing itself make Qbo self-aware?
