Choosing the Right Robot

Robotics has been advancing at a rate of knots over the past 10 years and although the time of replacing the majority of manual labour with robot operations is still a long way off, there are some interesting new industrial robots appearing which come much closer to undertaking human tasks.  As an experienced robot integrator […]

When to use a SCARA Robot

What is a SCARA robot? SCARA robots were first developed in the 1980’s in Japan and the name SCARA stands for Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm.  The main feature of the SCARA robot is that it has a jointed 2-link arm which in some ways imitates the human arm although it operates on a single […]

Compelling Reasons to Bring Laser Cutting In-House

Many companies use laser cut components in the manufacture of their products, and the obvious starting point when prototyping or stepping up towards volume manufacturing is the use of a local subcontractor for laser cutting.  The flexibility and affordability of a subcontract service can match with the varying needs of companies unfamiliar with laser cutting.  […]
