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.


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.


Automation has been an essential part of manufacturing environments over the years. Around the globe, industries have been upgrading their workspaces to incorporate robots in order to be on track with industry 4.0. This involves integrating new robotic systems or adding to pre-existing robotic assemblies. The robot equipment does not always have to be bought new. In fact, many companies are purchasing second-hand robots in order to satisfy their automation requirements.


As the world becomes more and more futuristic, industries have been upgrading their machine floors to become more efficient and productive. Automation is seen throughout the manufacturing world and is essential for any business to be on track with Industry 4.0. Many factory processes incorporate automation, one of which includes inspection installations. Automated inspection installations come in different forms, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. The most common inspection technologies include vision systems, measurement sensors, and optical comparators.


The application of robotic technologies is seen throughout the world. They provide huge benefits to any production floor while still being cost-effective. But as market opportunities and demand increase, industries are looking for more ways to improve upon existing robotic solutions. There are many technologies available to increase the efficiency of robotic equipment, one of which is the use of robotic cells.


The acquisition of reasonably priced materials can make or break a company. In our modern world, industries and consumers are expecting goods to be delivered faster and cheaper than ever seen before. Industries must also ensure sufficient product is being delivered or created to match demand or run the risk of empty or leftover inventory. Meeting these constraints is highly dependant on the effectiveness of a company’s supply chain.


In order to be on track with today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world, industries have begun integrating automated processes to their production floors for a more efficient way of manufacturing goods. Robotic installations are a prime example of a crucial technology needed in present-day manufacturing. When performed correctly, robotic integration has many benefits. However, there are precautions that must be taken in order to ensure the technologies are installed swiftly and correctly. Often, robotic integrators are forced to shutdown equipment, or entire production floors in order to achieve this. This is referred to as Factory Shutdowns.
