For Automate this year, Mitsubishi Electric and some of its partners shared how their technologies work together.
One of the more interesting demonstrations was Realtime Robotics’ collision management software, which allows multiple robots to work in proximity to one another in one work cell.
Three Mitsubishi robots, including the 7FRL, the 8CRL, and 5AS, simulated locating holes for screwing, picking up screws, and screw fastening.
Realtime Robotics’ dynamic path-planning software prevented the robots from hitting one another.
Patrick Varley , product marketing manager at Mitusbishi Electric Automation, said one of the best parts of the path-planning software is that it can easily be reconfigured and adjusted on the fly by workers on the floor.Return to article.
