Open and Modular Robotics with NexROBA Solution

POSTED: 06/21/2019

NexCOBOT’s NexROBA is an open and modular solution, based on standard EtherCAT communication. Since every set of industrial robots is a system, NexROBA offers the flexibility to provide modules in a robotic system, such as robot controllers, EtherCAT I/O, and teach pendant, depending on customer’s needs. The software of this

NexCOBOT Leverages Intel® Vision Accelerator Design Products to Deliver Robotics with AI for Industry 4.0

POSTED: 06/19/2019

Solution Brief: Advancing industrial optimization and automation via the integration of machine vision and AI Executive Summary: Robots play a major role in making manufacturing processes more efficient and less labor intensive. They can help control costs and improve quality, as well as increase productivity. The complexity of robotic system design, however, creates

3D Smart Sensors in Vision-Guided Robotic Systems

POSTED: 04/02/2018

Robots On The Rise The use of industrial robots in mass production environments has many proven benefits. Most importantly, robots automate tasks that previously were done manually. Robots are able to work for extended periods of time with a high level of speed and repeatability, which significantly increases product quality and

5 RTOS Performance Compared on EtherCAT Master – IntervalZero’s RTX/RTX64 Stands Out

by Terri Hawker, Vice President Product Management

POSTED: 03/29/2018

The KINGSTAR Soft Motion platform supports multiple industry-leading EtherCAT Masters to guarantee that devices from different manufacturers can work together seamlessly. The centralized controller architecture provided by an EtherCAT Master ensures all of the benefits of EtherCAT technology, like real-time operations, short cycle times, and maximum performance for minimal expense. 5

Why Developers Should Consider Industrial Automation Software

by Jerry Leitz, Director of Field Engineering, Motion Control

POSTED: 03/27/2018

Industrial automation software is used in a wide variety of applications. Unlike using hardware motion control, for instance, which comes with several limitations and elevated operational costs, there is now a new tool for developers to consider. The KINGSTAR Soft Motion Platform offers engineers a convenient, software-based solution for top

Do I Need a Vision System for my Robot or Should I Fly Blind?

by Joe Palace, Senior Electrical Engineer at Patti Engineering

POSTED: 07/07/2017

When a robot performs an application, a process, or a validation check on a part, it relies on that part being the same size and being in the exact location before it does its routine. But what if this part is not the same size or is not located where

How Embedded Devices and the Cloud Are Leading a Paradigm Shift in Manufacturing and Production

POSTED: 05/17/2016

By: Daron Underwood, CTO Not long ago, embedded devices were not connected in any way to a network especially to a network that was accessible to the cloud. As such, it was decidedly difficult to have software activation and licensing software work at a local level. Microsoft even struggled with Windows

Why an Open “Plug-and-Play” Software Platform is The Answer for Industrial Motion Control

POSTED: 04/28/2016

What is the number one thing that industrial automation engineers want at work? It’s simple: the freedom and flexibility to choose the best tools without reservation. That autonomy, however, is rarely achieved, not just in industrial automation but practically any industry these days. Oh sure, plenty of tooling vendors say they provide

Industrial Machine Automation: Soft Motion Control Has Better Performance and Value Than Hardware

POSTED: 04/15/2016

Embedded OEMs – especially those whose products have complex human-machine interfaces (HMIs), manage many degrees of motion, and require hard real-time operation – have traditionally relied on field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and digital signal processors (DSPs) to meet the precision and performance requirements of machine vision and motion control

Cycle Times for Trackmotion Robotic Cells

POSTED: 05/04/2015

CYCLE TIMES FOR TRACKMOTION ROBOTIC CELLS Placing a robot on a track greatly expands its reach envelope, potentially allowing it to tend many more machines or to transfer

Robust VFD Solutions to Meet Industry Standards

by LAPP USA, Marketing

POSTED: 07/19/2012

VFDs – also commonly referred to as Adjustable or Variable Speed Drives – improve the efficiency of motor-driven  equipment and allow for accurate continuous control over a wide range of operating speeds. The VFD market is continually expanding on an ever increasing scale to help support the highly

Understand Connector Selection to Avoid Downtime

by LAPP North America, Marketing

POSTED: 07/19/2012

A typical manufacturing plant today will have thousands, or even many thousands, of electrical connections on both fixed equipment and moving machines. And it’s just a matter of time before some of those connections fail or wear out, bringing production machines to a dead stop. One way to minimize this

The Importance of Oil Resistant Cable

by LAPP USA, Marketing

POSTED: 07/19/2012

Of all the chemical exposures that can affect the life and performance of electrical cables, oil is one of the most    damaging. Used as a coolant and lubricant in many industrial and infrastructure settings, oil can inflict molecular damage on the polymers used for cable insulation and jacketing. If ignored,

NFPA 79 (New 2018) Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery

by LAPP USA, Marketing

POSTED: 07/19/2012

It is important to be aware that the new electrical standard for industrial machinery is covered in both the NFPA 70 and NFPA 79.   NFPA 70 - The National Electrical Code (NEC) is a standard, which covers the installation of electrical conductors, equipment, and raceways; signaling and communication conductors, equipment, and raceways; and
