Raised on a farm, I grew up with the knowledge of agricultural practices, as well as the workings of farm equipment and labour. As a child, I had a natural talent for music and one of my greatest hobbies to this day is playing piano. I mainly played with LEGO and K’NEX which gave me interests in mechanical design; and one of my greatest interests of all was the exploration of space. Knowing what is in the unknown seemed exiting to me.

Throughout elementary, I was deeply interested in mathematics and science. Everything around me could be explained using these subjects and I wanted to delve further. As a result, I strived in these subjects and knew I wanted to be an engineer as soon as I got to high school. With this in mind, I took as many science and mathematics courses I could while still taking music all 4 years of my high school terms.

I was accepted to Laurentian University for Mechatronics Engineering since I wished to learn about the field of robotics since the world is moving more and more towards automation. I graduated in the summer of 2021 and begun working for DIY Robotics as their technical writer. I write about robotics and their applications in the manufacturing industry.


Industrial robots have revolutionized the way manufacturing and production is done in industries around the world. This technology has changed the way industries operate by automating tasks that were once done manually, resulting in increased efficiency, accuracy, and safety. In this blog post, we will explore what industrial robots are, their advantages, and some of the industries that use them.


In recent years, robotics have become increasingly popular in manufacturing, healthcare, and other industries. They offer a range of benefits, including increased efficiency, improved quality, and reduced costs. In this blog post, we will explore one of the types of robots which has become a staple in the industry; these are known as collaborative robots.


In recent years, robotics has become an increasingly important and rapidly growing field. Robots are being used in a wide range of industries, from manufacturing and logistics to healthcare and entertainment. As the capabilities of robots continue to advance, they are poised to play an even larger role in our society in the coming years. One of the leading contributors to the robotic industry is the Japanese company FANUC. This company is known for producing high-quality robotic systems that are used in a wide range of industries, from automotive manufacturing to food processing.


A cobot is a term used to represent a collaborative robot. These robots are specifically designed to be able to work alongside humans in a production setting. They have reduced speed, unique safety features, and can work in an open system, unlike their industrial robot counterparts. They often take the shape of a human arm and hand, and are great for repetitive and dangerous tasks; which makes them an excellent addition to any workspace.


Within the manufacturing industry, layouts or production floors can change often. Automated equipment may need to be reinstalled, relocated, or altered to satisfy a new manufacturing environment. Industrial robots are often installed with a permanent location in mind (i.e., bolted to the ground). Hence, installing and uninstalling this equipment can often be lengthy and complicated. To add on, safety barriers and cells installed around these robots would increase the time needed. Therefore, robotic cells which have the robots installed alongside them, equipped to have wheels on them can provide many benefits to a workspace.


As more industries are moving into Industry 4.0, they are looking for new innovative ways to improve their production through the use of robotics. However, for industries which already possess robotic equipment, there are a few solutions available to further improve their efficiency. One of these solutions is through the use of robotic cells.


As technologies advance, manufacturing industries are looking for new and innovative ways to increase their factory production and efficiency. Robotic technology is widely used and is available for all production companies to achieve these goals. Many different kinds of robotic equipment are available to be integrated into a factory floor. They can be distinctly categorized into two groups: Industrial Robots and Collaborative Robots. Each of these options provides many benefits, however, based on the task or environment that they would be subjected to, one may prove to be a better fit over the other. 


In this part, we will answer frequent questions about robotic cells and explain how robotic equipment is an excellent solution to increase the overall efficiency of a workplace. There are a wide range of products, models, and equipment available to automate a production procedure. However, integrating robotic equipment onto a product floor is not an easy or straight-forward task. Many steps and precautions need to be taken before choosing the right equipment for the job. It is important to ensure you have correct information to ensure great fit for the automated equipment on your production floor. At DIY Robotics, we provide detailed product pages, an easy contact service, as well as an online forum to provide all the knowledge our customers may inquire about our products.


Throughout history, humans have discovered and developed ways to manipulate materials in order to create and build the world around them. As technology progressed, our understanding of these materials has led to breakthroughs in production and sustainability, which has benefited society greatly. Therefore, a strong understanding of materials is essential for any manufacturing environment to operate. Whether the results are structural or product-based, each industry must comply with and meet specific requirements to deliver a safe and reliable product. Hence, the use of Strength of Materials is a key aspect of all manufacturing processes.


Assembly robots are commonplace within any manufacturing environment. They are capable of performing mundane and repetitive tasks with ease. Due to the accuracy of a robot’s EOAT, assembly robots are also perfect for constructing products that require a delicate or precise touch. Such products could involve anything with electronics or compact components. Assembly robots are also capable of working with awkward and heavier parts which a human would find hazardous. In modern assembly lines, almost all nodes within the line are operated by robots or some sort of automated equipment. This ensures that a consistent and accurate construction process is maintained.
