How are Cartesian Robots Different?

“Until now, the collaborative robot market has been dominated by 6-axis articulated robots. These robots have complex geometries that create large workcells with significant dead space and make it difficult to teach positions. The simple Cartesian geometry of the PP100 is ideal for simple applications, and for adding process modules such as screwdrivers or dispense heads, and for mounting above equipment like conveyor belts. The integrated controls and ability to bridge conveyors allows this robot to be installed in many applications without taking up valuable floor space. Precise’s full line of industrial collaborative robots (SCARA, Cartesian, 6-axis) allows users to choose the right configuration for their application rather than trying to make a 6-axis robot fit into every workcell.” – Brian Carlisle, CEO of Precise Automation.

Automation is Everywhere

Fully-Automated Cheese Brine System You might expect a fully- automated  cheese brine system when you see a horse pulling a little black buggy like in the picture above the last thing that may come to mind is industrial automation.  That was a true statement for me also, until I was involved with a fully automated cheese brining [...]
