Industrial Robotics Case Studies
Dimic Steel Tech, a metal fabrication and machining service provider in Upland, California uses OCTOPUZ to program their robot, a KUKA KR 16 for MIG welding, from start to finish.
Challenge Create a 138-foot-long wet bench silicon cleaning station utilizing multiple Cartesian robots driven by a combination of linear motion and control technologies Rexroth Solution CKR belt-driven linear modules CKK ball screw linear modules MKR belt-driven linear modules IndraDyn MSK synchronous servo motors IndraDrive C digital intelligent servo drives Rexroth EasyHandling System Results Effective use of overhead Cartesian robots Precision, accuracy and repeatability across the 138-foot length of the cleaning station Robustness and reliability Cleanliness to Class 10 cleanroom standards System ordered as single part number Background Although silicon is the key ingredient for semiconductors used in smartphones and other electronic devices, only a purified form can be used to make semiconductor chips.
The KINGSTAR Soft Motion platform supports multiple industry-leading EtherCAT Masters to guarantee that devices from different manufacturers can work together seamlessly.

A major dairy packaging company operating multiple plants in Texas and surrounding states had a need to improve the inspection and reject station for their half-gallon gable top carton filling line.
Kawasaki Robotics US recently turned to Güdel for a 21-meter-long, three-carriage TrackMotion TMF-4 for material handling in a body shop.
In 2008, ORTHOPEDIE BONTOUX, a company that has specialised in the manufacture and adaptation of orthopedic and prosthetic apparatus (orthoses and prostheses) since 1982, created its subsidiary OSIC-CARBONE.
Client Profile: Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a global research university with campuses located in Pittsburgh, Qatar and Silicon Valley.
Traditional robots can substantially boost productivity but generally they are large devices that are application-specific and complex to programme.
Business needs – Background A manufacturer of electric vehicle conversions offering a wide range of products, from small cars to large busses.
Part of modular CombiTac connector system, contact carriers are available for Ethernet cabling and field bus systems.
UL approved test leads are terminated with 4 mm diameter plugs for connecting standard safety test clips and probes to enable safe, fuse-protected measurements.
AxiClamp has connector body with solid metal cone that clamps copper cable strands against internal taper on metal sleeve.
Compatible with all oscilloscopes, Isoprobe® III high-frequency (250-500 MHz) test probes have coaxial connecting cable with low capacitance.
Used where clamping is not possible, magnetic adapters safely attach test leads onto screw heads.
