As clever and impressive as robotic arms are – accurately completing the most demanding or delicate of jobs – it is industrial automation that gives them this accuracy.
Yet, how are advancements in technology allowing industrial automation to constantly move forward?
At the heart of many industrial data acquisition systems is the need to improve control and accuracy. This is why the best systems come ready to install and connect, in compact, closed 19 inches industrial inserts, allowing a fast integration into any system.
Versatility is also playing a greater role in the development of industrial automation. The need to be able to control more than one machine or from different locations is leading an improvement of capabilities.
This is why you will find systems with the ability to comply with hardware and software and offering Ethernet I/O, field bus systems such as Interbus or Profibus, which can also be integrated and a software interface to Visual Basic/C++ can be created.
Vision technology is another area of industrial automation that has greatly improved. Linking robots and visions systems has given users better understanding of a product when in production.
Vision Guide 4.0 is EPSON’s state-of-the-art solution for robot guidance and inspection, which provides greater clarity when producing products.
Such improved visibility in the production process is creating more detailed products and the relationship between robotics and vision systems is allowing this to be completed quickly.
It is important to remain up-to-date with advancements in technology when using industrial automation and robotics.
