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

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

The Importance of PLC Validation in Manufacturing

POSTED: 10/06/2017

A programmable logic controller (PLC) is a specialized type of computer designed for applications requiring high reliability, ease of programming and sophisticated fault diagnosis. PLCs are commonly used in manufacturing processes, especially robotic devices on assembly lines. A PLC’s design must be validated before it can be used. This process consists

Digital Transformation in Manufacturing: Challenging Times, Changing Business Models

POSTED: 09/18/2017

The competition to capture the attention of today’s consumers is fierce. In almost every consumer serving industry – including consumer goods, electronics, and automotive – manufacturers are struggling to win the interest and dollars of consumers. The reason? More competition. The changing competitive landscape is putting intense pressure on manufacturers whose

7 Myths About Implementing Simulation Software Uncovered

POSTED: 08/30/2017

Implementing new technologies doesn’t always go as expected, and the same can be said for implementing manufacturing simulation solutions. We have several examples of companies that completed smooth and fast implementations, and were able to see immediate results from integrating manufacturing simulation into their workflows. But, there are also examples

Turn Production Plans into Project Success

POSTED: 08/22/2017

Any seasoned engineer can tell you stories of how reality got in the way of a beautiful model, drawing or calculation. A screw hole that couldn’t be accessed by a screwdriver, an assembly line that moves too fast for a worker, or even a plant wall that has to be moved

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
