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.
The scalable 3D quality inspection (3DQI) joins the FlexArc and FlexLoader in ABB’s growing portfolio of smart and flexible solutions. Designed to accelerate testing of automotive, aerospace, heavy machinery, and construction workpieces, the hardware/software solution also enhances quality and reduces waste.
With four monitoring modules, the Artis GEMDS system from Marposs provides real-time feedback on spindle characteristics that’s critical to avoiding out-of-tolerance parts. The system easily integrates into existing controls, network environments, and Industry 4.0 solutions.
The M62 Scan from Marposs relieves the workload of gear lab machines by enabling an interim check directly on the shop floor. The universal inspection system can reach speeds of up to 50 mm/s, helping to improve production processes.
