Infrared thermal cameras are a great additional to a preventive maintenance program. They’re easy to use and can help you find where issues are within your electrical system. Thermal cameras often have a point-and-shoot design with the IR image displayed on a screen on the back of the camera.

 

 

 

One of the pressing challenges faced by today’s manufacturing companies is a shortage of skilled workers. This shortage spans a wide range of roles from visual inspections to equipment maintenance.

 

 

 

Just as most people haven’t crossed paths with sophisticated criminals in their everyday lives, most industrial automation users have not had to face major cyber threats from bad actors.

Integrators and Robots have been paired together since automation first made its way on to the scene. Integrators have worked closely and were a bridge between robot manufacturers and the industries that adopted robotics right from the beginning.

 

 

 

It was winter 2009, and Samuel Bouchard was on a mission to sell his startup’s first product, a robotic gripper, to the automotive manufacturers of Michigan.

 

 

 

Control panel builders utilize several factors to create optimal functionality. Taking these considerations a step further to ensure safe operation, designers should adhere to widely accepted standards, notably Underwriters Laboratories (UL) UL508A.

 

 

 

In the next ten years, more and more people around the world will be working with robots. Automation is becoming mainstream and is finding its way into more and more areas. Easy access to robotics: That’s KUKA’s ambitious goal.

Lean Robotics: Making Robots Work in Your Factory

Lean RoboticsBy Samuel Bouchard

WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK

It was winter 2009, and I was on a mission to sell my startup’s first product, a robotic gripper, to the automotive manufacturers of Michigan. My cofounders and I—three friends from the robotics lab at Laval University—had a straightforward business plan for our new company,Robotiq.

At the time, every robotic gripper had custom-made fingers, so whenever manufacturers wanted to use grippers in their robotics-based assembly lines, they had to go through lots of trial and error regarding custom design and fabrication.
