Retraining strategies for a robotically automated world.
ColeTech used a Radian 6DoF tracker from API to correct errors in joint angles and link lengths for deflashing molded parts.
Exact Metrology worked with artist Tom Tsuchiya to create relief figures of the 1869 Cincinnati Reds team.
Efficiently moving information around your shop floor is more important than ever. Connected through RFID, a shop can now use a tool presetter to monitor things never monitored before and use that data to fine-tune processes, reduce inefficient costs like scrap and waste, and make the factory floor smarter, streamlined, far more efficient and competitive.
Human-robot collaboration is changing manufacturing operations by helping shops deal with competitive pressures and a lack of skilled labor, but it is not a “one size fits all” solution. Before you invest, consider the different forms of robotic collaboration and how they apply to your entire application.
Automated Precision’s portable vProbe performs CMM-style measurements on the shop floor and is more versatile than a portable-arm coordinate measuring machine (CMM).
Designed for Universal Robots’ UR3e cobot arm, the Q-Span Workstation from New Scale Robotics comes with everything necessary to automate small-part measurement inspection. You can improve gage R&R and boost capacity without adding headcount.
OnRobot’s updated Eyes robot vision system sorts, inspects, and picks-and-places parts using color and contour – what the company calls one-shot detection – instead of workpiece teaching, greatly reducing cycle times and easing the programming process.

‘One-Button’ Advanced Rockwell Hardness Tester
Buehler’s Wilson RH2150 is easy to program and offers an intuitive software interface with Buehler’s DiaMet hardness testing software. Use the external footswitch with the actuator-mounted clamping device to clamp and activate either manual or automatic start, as well as to release manually or automatically after test.
Smart Visual Inspection Technology Meets Metrology Products
A new Mitutoyo-Kitov agreement will lead to the integration of Kitov technologies in Mituoyo’s metrology solutions. Look for future development of more solutions to come from the new partners as they combine Mitutoyo’s measurement technologies with Kitov’s planning and inspection technologies.
