Knowing When to Retrofit Your Robot
Upgrading an existing robotic configuration or robotic workcell can go a long way to ensuring maximum performance and return on investment. But knowing when to retrofit is not always clear. With that in mind, here are several concepts to consider when making the decision to add an extra five to ten years onto your original equipment.
Expert Tips for Robot Collision Avoidance
From single robot usage to large-scale, multi-robot systems, a robot’s ability to perceive obstacles and avoid collisions is paramount to smooth and safe robotic operation. Whether through strategic path planning, proximity sensor detection or other means, collision avoidance is vital to ensuring application success. With that in mind, here are a few concepts to consider where collision avoidance is concerned.
Digital Twinning for Common Robot Applications
Digital twin technology for robotic control is optimizing overall performance for advanced robotic applications. Generally speaking, a digital twin for robotics is taking an accurate 3D model of a robotics operation into the virtual world for testing and enhancing before adding to an existing workcell. Digital twin data can help make predictions about future outcomes, yielding accuracy, safety and efficiency for a task.
