Using Robotics to Go From CAD to Path
Robots are typically programmed to replay paths taught using point-to-point methods. Traditional CNC processing is done by off-line processing. Both methods have their advantages, however robots have proven...
Robotic Accuracy Improves Aerospace Manufacturing
Where accuracy is concerned, robots have traditionally relied on repeatability. In the past, robotic accuracy has not been published or developed to a level of maturity acceptable to standard production processes. Critical aerospace manufacturing...
Delta Robots Improve Highly Repetitive Tasks
What is a "Delta Robot?" A delta robot is a parallel-link robot in which its major mechanical axes act on the robot faceplate in parallel rather than...
Painting Small Masked Parts Using Robots and Chain-On-Edge Machines
Painting in a chain-on-edge environment allows for parts to move in front of a stationary robot such as FANUC Robotics' PaintMate 200iA. The parts are painted efficiently, allowed to move along...
Robotic Automation for the Fabrication of Wind Turbine Power Generators
Through the ages, wind turbines of various designs produced energy for everyday jobs like grinding grain or pumping water, and were a core technology for early societies. In the last few decades, many...
Laser Cutting Robots and Heavy Part Material Handling Using Industrial Automation
A leading supplier of truck and bus frames to the automotive industry supplies thousands of truck and bus frames to its automotive customers each year. A key to their success is their ability to deliver...
Applying FANUC Robotics America’s CERT program to STEM and CTE programs
Integrating industrial robotics into STEM and CTE programs has multiple benefits because an industrial robot is a great tool to show how math and science is applied in real time, while giving students instant...
Error Proofing Using iRVision
What is Error Proofing? Error Proofing in automation relates to the ability of a system to either prevent an error in a process or detect it before...
Benefits of Flexible Part Feeding
Integrators who manufacture assembly automation and OEM’s who need equipment to manufacture assemblies are faced with a very large challenge of how to get the parts into the assembly machines...
Using Robots to Solve End-of-Line Issues in the Food Industry
Food manufacturers face a number of challenges in their end-of-line packaging operations. In a manual process, they must deal with ergonomic issues, labor availability, and the uncertainty of increasing...
