I have a robot to conduct welding on small parts on a turntable. When in teach mode the robot speed is reduced below 250 mm/sec. The turntable is also controlled by the teach pendant in teach mode and both cannot be moved simultaneously, either one or the other. Is there a set "speed limit" for the turntable (or other ancillary equipment similar to this) that must be met when in teach mode (e.g. 250mm/sec) or is it whatever is determined as acceptable risk by the risk assessment?

Hi all. I'm a civil engineer starting a new job as a high school engineering design teacher. I'm looking for a robotics kit, or curriculum or... are raspberry pi's still a thing? Something easy for a high school class to get started on, but still allowing us to do some computer drawings and then build or machine some parts using the cool machines we have access to. I've got a pretty new STEM lab with machines like a CNC, welders (not yet sure which kinds), 3D printers, laser cutter and engraver. I have access to a wood workshop, an auto shop, and a machine shop. I see that some robotics kits seem to include virtually all the parts you need, which I imagine would remove the opportunity for the students to machine some of their own stuff. Do you have any suggestions as to something that is easy to get started on, but doesn't preclude creating some of the parts?

Hello all. I am new here and not very well educated on the robot. We have a Fanuc 710iC50 with an R-30iA controller. I was wondering if it is possible for the operator to edit the program at the robot, on the pendant, and slow down the robot for 1 or 2 arm positions then return it back to full speed. We edit in several features now, coolant, spindle on/off, and dwells. Here is a screen shot of part of s program. Want to for example slow now moves 15 and 16. 1: UFRAME_NUM=1 ; 2: UTOOL_NUM=6 ; 3:J P[1] 50% FINE ; 4:J P[2] 50% FINE ; 5:J P[3] 50% FINE ; 6:J P[4] 50% FINE ; 7:J P[5] 50% FINE ; 8: DO[3]=ON ; 9: DO[5]=ON ; 10: WAIT 5.00(sec) ; 11: R[1]=R[4] ; 12:L P[6] 300mm/sec FINE ; 13: CALL DRILL ; 14:L P[7] 300mm/sec FINE ; 15:J P[8] 50% FINE ; 16:J P[9] 50% FINE ; 17:L P[10] 300mm/sec FINE ; 18: CALL DRILL ; 19:L P[11] 300mm/sec FINE ; 20:J P[12] 50% FINE ; 21:J P[13] 50% FINE ; 22:L P[14] 300mm/sec FINE ; 23: CALL DRILL ; Thanks, Jon

I'm searching for a used robot distributor in North America, but having some difficulty finding sellers of models such as ABB and Kuka industrial manipulators. So far I have submitted a few Requests For Quotes, but these have mostly been responded to by European and Chinese sellers. Can you possibly tell me what avenue is recommended to receive quotes for industrial robots?

I want to create a robots which works based on sound. The main goal of the project is the robot can pick a object (based on computer vision) and check the sound of that object and classify it as good/bad based on sound classification and put that object in the corresponding trays. I have done the sound classification and image recognition by using deep learning. But my problem is how to integrate these things to a robot. If anybody has ideas about this could you please share to gkarthikeya807@gmail.com

Hi there, We are based in Toronto, ON, Canada and are looking for a consultant/engineer to work with on programming a robotic arm for a manufacturing process. We are not looking for a hardware supplier or robotics provider at this stage. Can you suggest any companies in the Greater Toronto Area or in Ontario that might be able to help us.

Hi, I am building a robot that needs to sense heat from about 5 cm -10 cm away. All I need the sensor to do is when it detects something that is higher than about 35 Celsius to 45 Celsius I need it so say so. Then I will be able to execute something else. I don't know what would be the best sensor to do so. I have looked at thermal cameras, and it seems very hard to code, but I'm not sure if a sensor like DHT11 would be able to sense the heat from a distance. I would like some help to know what the best sensor would be to use.

What is the best industrial robotic arm that can operate in a high vacuum environment (chamber) with a reach up to 72"? A couple of additional details: To function correctly it must be an anthropomorphic arm on a movable platform which is a 7th axis. Our robots must be able to operate at 10^-6 torr. There can be no petroleum products used in the robot. All greases must be replaced with vacuum grease like Krytox. Plastic materials are not good in a vacuum as they will outgas and become brittle/break. They also outgas chemicals that can destroy adhesion of our films. The payload is about 35 pounds. We use mesh files that describe X, Y and Z coordinates with and IJK vector for pointing at the substrate we are coating. We prefer no Teflon as it grows under vacuum and shrinks in atmosphere.
