The Fourth Industrial Revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, the Factory of the Future, the Smart Factory, the Industrial Internet, Industrie 4.0 and the 4th Industrial Revolution, is quickly emerging and affecting our lives in new ways.  It is helping to streamline robots and their automated operations, while also optimizing costs, turning the potential for enterprise-wide automated business transformation a reality.

Industrial processing is being revolutionized by Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC). They arrived on the market in 2014 and since their inception, collaborative robots have been widely successful and become a key player in a variety of industries, especially the automotive and electronics.  These industries and more are getting a glimpse of what the factory of the future will look like: human and robots collaborating on the production line without separation and without safety fencing.

FANUC’s collaborative robot series includes the heavy-duty CR-35iA and has recently introduced human arm sized mini-collaborative robots: the CR-4iA, the CR-7iA, and the extended reach, the CR-7iA/L.  They are small and flexible robots that are able to help conserve floor space with flexible mounting options such as up-side down, on a wall, or even on a hand cart that can easily be relocated.

TIP-TIG welding is a new advanced innovation of the common TIG welding.  This process uses new, patent-pending technology, that delivers the highest possible weld energy with the lowest possible weld heat, all while still being user-friendly.  While TIG welding is one of the most accurate robotic welding processes on the market today, there is always room for innovation.

When looking for that perfect finish, one must pay close attention to how the preparatory work is completed. This is an instrumental stage, key for providing optimum product results. Enter innovative robotic sanding solutions. Robotic sanding produces a product that is far superior to manual processing, in all respects.  It smooths down surfaces using a custom end of arm tooling in order to produce a clean, even, silky, and finished product.

If you are looking to improve your sanding, polishing, or finishing of wooden parts, look no further than ABB’s integrated Force Control software.  ABB always keeps the customer in mind; this is reflective in the quality in their robots and the company's incredible customer service.

Industrial robots are continually receiving upgrades and enhancements as technology is exponentially improving.  This is evident when taking a dive deep into FANUC’s sanding robots. These robots now combine force sensing and robotic vision to create tactile intelligence.   These two techniques have been introduced into the industry to increase the proven effectiveness of robots in manufacturing.  And that they have.

Automated spindling can produce a more consistent, precise, and overall high quality product (than manual work) for a variety of applications.  Spindling robots are excellent choices for applications such as material removal, deburring, milling, or precise routing.  They help to make work pieces clean and uniform for manufacturing processes.

MotoLogix is a new, revolutionary software and hardware interface that can control DX200 Motoman robots via a Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC.  The integration of MotoLogix into the PLC offers the full advantages of the robot controller, but provides a more simplified process.  No longer will programming, operation, and maintenance of robots and machine control be carried out separately.
