Dispensing with 6-Axis Robots

Posted by Maureen Redmond on Jan 7, 2021 2:04:36 PM

Dispensing by means of 6-axis robots is an efficient platform for various dispensing applications, when a 3-axis tabletop robot does not provide the flexibility required.

Software options are available to allow for path following of  3D CAD models or sketch patterns within a 3D model. Product models can be inserted into a simulated robot environment so that dispensing simulations can be generated offline. This enables the programmer to verify any axis limitations or collisions without taking the actual robot offline and prevents downtime of production.

Dispense verification options are also available to ensure proper dispense bead width tolerances are met, alert upon dispense failure, or for traceability requirements. Bead reconstruction or repair can be done on the spot to prevent product waste and down time.

What Is 3D Printing and How Do 3D Printers Work?

Posted by Larisa Aslanyan on Nov 7, 2016 10:18:07 AM

3D printing is ground-breaking technology that has not only made engineering faster, cheaper, and easily accessible, it has also advanced our capability of being creative and precise at the same time. And although 3D printing might seem like time-travel into the future, it has actually been around for a while, being mostly used industrially. So, yes, there is some explaining to be done.
