Standardized Software for Customized Products

Posted October 01, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Manufacturers increasingly turn to robots and agile machines to achieve the flexibility required to meet the demand for custom products. Unfortunately, integrating robot controls and kinematics with larger automation systems poses significant challenges. Modular software for multi-dimensional motion process and standard models provides a way around these difficulties. Design World looks at the challenges encountered in these applications and explains how the software tools work. The payoff? Reduced engineering/programming work loads and the ability to quickly tailor robot kinematics for specific tasks (see video).
