Dispensing is one of the many tasks that a robot can do. There are several aspects that need to be understood before selecting a good dispensing robot. Let’s go through them to try to make things clear.
When assembling a part, some of the most important components to consider are the connections and joints. If the joints are weak, the whole structure will be weak. Heat Staking is the process of melting a boss from a plastic component into the hole of another component. The heating process can be accomplished using different ways such as hot air, ultrasonic system, or contact heating element.

Each year, around 1.6 million twins are born around in the world. Some are identical and some are not. But even identical twins are not completely identical. The same could be stated regarding the FANUC CR robots and the LR Mate series robots. They may look like twins because they share similar physical designs with very little differences, but they are both quite different in many aspects. The major difference can be noted in their working speed, environment, and safety. To better understand the FANUC LR MATE and CR Robots, we should review their capabilities, similarities and differences.
The metal industry is one of the biggest revenue-generating industries in today’s economy. It impacts various end-user applications and caters to a vast range of sectors: agriculture, automotive, medical, aerospace, construction, electronics, and many more. As it is such a huge industry, it needs automation to meet the standards and production rate of the demanded supply.
Thanks to the first section of this blog, we know that part-entry accessories are a great complement to an industry’s automation because they make it more profitable.Next, we will look at part entry accessories when bulk feeding is not an option, and when a feeding mechanism is not restricted by the shape and size of the parts. So let’s get into it:
According to the RIA (Robotic Industry association), in 2016, 34,606 robots were installed in North America alone. The main purpose of having robots in an industry is to reduce laborious, repetitive, and dangerous tasks. But to perform what they are intended to do, robots need material and parts to be fed in. This is where part entry accessories come into play. Automating this step helps industries utilize their workforce in other, more productive work.

So, those two words together and in the context of industrial automation, refer to the loading or unloading of parts or material on a machine.
Haven’t most of us, during childhood, once hoped for a robot that could pick up our toys, place them back and organize them so that our parents wouldn’t scold us for making a mess? Today, it has become reality. Although robots are not yet picking and placing items in our homes, they are doing so in our factories.Let us try to expand our horizons, by understanding pick and place robots.
