Automation/Robotics

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 done by a human worker. Robotics is a segment of automation involving a machine (robot) capable of making independent movements programmed to perform complex tasks ranging from simple handling of parts to full machine tending, welding, grinding and other operations typically performed by a human worker.

A Faster, More-Accurate Way to Tap and Drill Structural Steel

Acieta drilling

A heavy equipment manufacturer is using a 6-axis robotic arm equipped with a drilling spindle to very precisely make holes in structural steel up to 1 inch thick. The solution is one-third the cost of traditional drilling but performs many other applications and requires just one operator.

Will the Real Collaborative Robot (aka Cobot) Please Stand Up?

Yaskawa Cobot Welding

A robotic system is ‘collaborative’ only if all elements – robot, tooling, workpiece, and work area – meet international safety standards. Depending on application, you may be able to turn a standard industrial robot into a cobot and comply.
