How to Successfully Introduce a Cobot into the Workplace

Collaborative robots, also called cobots, are getting a lot of attention because they address labor shortages and enhance productivity in a more cost-effective way than traditional industrial robots due to a simpler set up (think more along the lines of plug-and-play than complex system integration) and their ability to work alongside humans, while freeing them […]

Cobots and the Future of Advanced Robotics in Manufacturing

Historically, automation in manufacturing has been a bit of a hammer. And as machine operators and plant managers alike know, not every problem is a nail.  Fortunately, automation in manufacturing has advanced considerably over the last several years, bringing more agile, more cost effective, and safer solutions to manufacturing’s most wicked problems. Collaborative robots, also […]

Rotary vs. Linear Electric Actuators

Electrical Panal Automation

Industrial automation and many manufacturing processes rely on motion. Motion systems move parts into and out of machines, they bring tools into contact with workpieces, and they operate key parts of processing machinery. This motion is provided by actuators. These are devices that, when supplied with power, move in a particular way. For engineers and […]
