Let’s go on with our collaborative robot series with the first collaborative SCARA robot : PF400 from Precise Automation. This article will cover an introduction to this new robot, its key features and future developments. PF400 : Introduction Precise Automation is a company founded in 2004 and their main goal is to help customers “automate with ease”. They are interested in collaborative robots and want to develop products that could be safely integrated into work-cells. They have spotted a market where automation would be appreciated, but has not yet been developed; laboratories. [...]Read More

Manufactures always want to improve their productivity, either by reducing production costs or cycle time. The robotic welding process is one manufacturing process that is worth automating. This is why welding robots are already used in some companies. Usually in the process, the pieces are placed in jigs and from there are welded by the robotic welder. Even if this looks simple, robotic welding brings many challenges that Robotiq intends to eliminate. Here is some of these challenges: As stated before, the use of jigs is common, but not the right solution for high-mix productions. [...]Read More
Nowadays, the constant pressure of productivity and cost efficiency are part of the manufacturing industry. In order to stay in business, manufacturers have to find more and more ways to always improve their production line. Automating the fabrication process already exists, but how to save more time and money on the line? Robotic machine tending should be the next step in production line automation. Reduce cycle time Even if the fabrication is automatic, a worker is often needed to feed those machines. [...]Read More
