Overseas sales increase, and you need more workers or more automation. For this small processor, automation proved the right choice,
One of the primary reasons paint spray booths are expensive to operate is the high energy cost of providing temperature-controlled supply air to replenish exhaust air. As companies look for ways to maximize floorspace utilization to help them cut costs and remain competitive in the global marketplace, spray paint booths
Robotic transporters are key when you want to automate welding of extremely large, heavy parts. The maximum work envelope radius of an extended-reach robot is about 3-meters (9.84’). If the parts you are welding require more reach than that, you need to find ways to move the robot to the
Driving along any highway, chances are that many of the vehicle lighting systems you see on semi-trucks, RVs, buses, and other vehicles are manufactured by Grote Industries (Madison, IN), a privately owned 100-year-old company with a history of innovation. High demand by major automotive OEMs and aftermarket suppliers for
In addition to being an international humanitarian organization, the American Red Cross is the biggest single blood collecting agency in the United States. Operating as a non-profit organization, the Red Cross supplies blood and blood products to approximately 3,000 hospitals daily. They now use advanced robotic automation linked directly
California Dairies, Inc. is the number one dairy cooperative in California and the second-largest in the United States. It is owned by more than 650 California dairies that ship nearly 17 billion pounds of milk to be sold and processed annually by one of its five
Aliment Putter’s Food, Inc. (Sainte-Sophie, QC), a well-known eastern Canadian producer of a wide variety of pickled vegetable products -- found themselves in a bit of a production pickle. Their manual end-of-line palletizing operation was limiting their processing capacity, particularly during their peak season between July and mid-November,
Manufacturers of Tandem Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) systems that supply two welding wires through a single torch often promise to double welding productivity – but in actuality, the results you can reasonably expect to achieve vary depending upon your application. When does it make sense to use the Tandem
With annual sales of over $13 billion, some 68,000 employees, and nearly 50 manufacturing and technology research centers around the globe, Whirlpool Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of major home appliances. The
Most consumer goods manufacturers need the ability to create variety packs or mixed loads of product on demand to meet specific customer requirements, pack product into trays or cases, palletize the trays and cases, and add stretch wrap or band the load – while always knowing what is inside each
Robots are poised to take away a significant portion of the CNC machine tool market. Emerging technology is making it possible for robot systems to perform many diverse manufacturing processes -- such as complex cutting and material removal, grinding, mold creation, surface finishing, and drilling and tapping applications -- that
Aztec Manufacturing Corporation (Romulus, Michigan) is a tier-one full-service supplier of mid- and high-volume precision-machined castings and forgings to the automotive industry. A minority-owned small business, Aztec currently employs 95 people in its 73,000 square foot facility. The company had sales of approximately $30 million in 2004 and projects $34
Robots and Titleist golf balls might seem an unusual pairing. However, Acushnet Company (Fairhaven, Massachusetts) -- the leading producer of Titleist® and Pinnacle® golf balls, Titleist® and Cobra® golf clubs, FootJoy® shoes and gloves, and other golf-related equipment and accessories -- is at the ‘‘fore-front’‘ of golf-ball manufacturing technology,
As robot controllers become more advanced, they are adding functionality and capabilities that were once the bailiwick of programmable logic controllers (PLCs). PLCs have been around for a long time, and people in medium to large manufacturing plants are often familiar with their functions, programming, ladder logic editing and troubleshooting. Smaller
Sometimes a New Solution is Right in Front of You The same servomotors used to control robot motion are now being applied to spot welding guns with excellent results. Precision servo-control improves quality, reduces cycle times, and extends tip life. This improved gun control has been further enhanced by integrating

Use of Simulation Software to Improve 'Design to Manufacture' Robotic simulation software has become a valuable tool used to perform a variety of time- and cost-saving tasks - from robot reach studies, up to and including off-line programming of robot cells - but simulation offers additional resources that we've
Q: What Is The State Of The North American Robotics Industry? Jennings: When I started in robotics 20 years ago, I had heard how the robot industry would do $1 billion by 1990. Even though the analysts got it wrong, the
In January 1999, Justin Pierce, of Mississippi Industries for the Blind (MIB), attended a basic robotic programming course at Motoman, Inc.'s headquarters in West Carrollton, Ohio. Justin is the first blind person to take the training offered by Motoman. Here, he participated in actual hands-on learning and worked with a
