Micro-Automation and the 6 axis Robot

How much space do you need for a 6-Axis Robot? If you intend to use a six-axis robot arm, such as Mecademic's Meca500 used in this tutorial as an example, you are most probably interested in positioning and orienting the robot's tool (end-effector) in various locations. Therefore, you'll certainly want to know the set of locations that [...]

What is Robotic Machine Tending?

  How Does Automated Machine Tending Work? Most machine tending is currently done by humans. Machine shops are using their human workforce to load and unload machines and to restart the program once the finished part is out of the way. The tasks are often repetitive and  qualified workers are becoming harder and harder to find, companies are introducing robots into their workshops to make up for the lack of employees. […]

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.

Micro-Automation – Small Part Automation “No Part Too Small”

What do you typically do whenever you are researching or looking to start learning about a topic?  For me that research typically starts with the “Google Search.”  If I can’t find it on the web to start narrowing down my search it then leads to a much more interesting and for me fun adventure on [...]
