Wolf Robotics currently sponsors the Fossil Ridge High School Ridgebotics team.
FANUC now eliminates the need for disposable batteries with their Rechargeable Battery Unit Kit for CNC machines.
The improved affordability of automation and its impressive returns on investment are sweeping through the shop floors of metal fabrication as robots and advanced motion control systems replace the human hands once needed to handle and process material.
Automation is the individual use or integrated configuration of computer software, machines or other technologies ranging from fully mechanical systems to fully virtual networks, very simple to intensely complex in functionality, to carry out a task that would typically be…
Don’t attempt to adapt an assembly robot into a bending cell. New application-driven robots work alongside press brakes to simplify part programming and minimize cycle times. Instead, add process reliability enhancements and offline software and your return on investment for bending automation becomes clear and highly achievable. Here’s how to do it.
Robotic press brakes offer higher productivity, more flexibility and better profitability for the fabricator. Standard robotic press brake systems from Wolf Robotics include all components, less the press brake, to accommodate common sizes and weights of typical parts. Most press brake equipment is capable of integration into Wolf standard cells.
