Job Duplication - Repeatable Robotics Efficiency

Posted by Glen Ford on Jun 12, 2015 5:47:37 AM

 

Example of a robot job duplication routine outlined in the White Paper: "Job Duplication - Repeatable Robotics Efficiency"

 

Dependability and repeatability in part production are top reasons for implementing a robotic solution into a manufacturing environment. Completing a job with the same results every time and every day leads to higher productivity, improved production times and the reduction of rework costs.

Spotting Robot Performance Issues Before They Happen

Posted by Aaron Barnes on Jun 9, 2015 5:28:38 AM

Just like with a car, performance issues with an industrial robot are often a sign of more costly trouble ahead. But what if you had a way to know of a potential problem with your robot before any visible signs of trouble? Even when everything seems to be running right, one way to get ahead of unwanted surprises is to analyze the grease that's used to lubricate each axis of your robot.

How Deep Learning and GPUs Will Accelerate the Industrial Space

Posted by Steve Rueckhaus on Apr 17, 2015 4:53:39 AM

There's been an exciting wave in technology that's bringing self-driving cars, augmented reality and artificial intelligence out of the research lab and into our world. Last month, technologists from a broad range of industries gathered in Silicon Valley to compare notes on how one technology - the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) - is accelerating several advancements in aerospace, life science, gaming, security, transportation and many more industries.

Process Considerations for Clinical Laboratory Automation

Posted by Craig Rubenstein on Mar 12, 2015 5:16:45 AM

As diagnostic lab managers consider implementation of process automation to achieve improved results, there are a number of common factors that can complicate or prevent a successful transition from manual handling/processing. Lab staff often performs “corrective” tasks without formal recognition, resulting in many processing steps being left out of the documented workflow. Engineering an automated process to satisfy the documented workflow may fail to account for these “hidden” process steps. Among the first tasks to be performed in a process improvement/automation program is a detailed workflow study with a specific focus on “casual” process steps.

Reframing the "Collaborative Robots" Discussion

There’s been a lot of excitement recently about collaborative robots. In September, there was a Collaborative Robotics Workshop in Silicon Valley, and an Advanced Manufacturing Workshop about collaborative robots was held last month at RoboBusiness in Boston. Great events to be sure - events that are building awareness about the accessibility of robots for companies of all sizes. Robots that can increase productivity, make companies more competitive and ultimately create jobs.
