Getting Started with Cobots
What To Look For...

For small and mid-size manufacturers that don’t have an army of automation engineers, cobots are a dream come true. These companies can especially be hard hit by labor shortages, economic volatility and competitive pressures, so the ability to deploy cobots without major investments in time, talent and money is a game-changer for many.

One of the most common questions is: “how can I get started?” Each company is, of course, different, but there are some things we recommend that manufacturers look for when considering where cobots can be put to work. Watch your people at work. What you see will help you identify work that is ideal for automation with cobots:

QUINT POWER Single Phase 24VDC/40A
For Superior System Availability

This fourth generation of Phoenix Contact's QUINT power supply family now includes the most powerful and innovative single-phase, 24VDC/40A power supply on the market.

It is designed with two strong power boosts to allow output up to 45A continuously and 60A for up to 5 seconds. QUINT includes several competitive advantages, including high efficiency, a high power factor, and an extensive electrical lifetime rating.

The unique SFB technology and preventive function monitoring of the QUINT POWER power supply increase the availability of your application.

GOT Mobile Web-based Remote Solutions
Monitor Your Worksite Anytime, Anywhere

The  GOT Mobile  function improves visualization accessibility and reduces total cost of ownership. The GOT and your mobile devices can communicate directly without using a separate access point. 

GOT Mobile provides convenient remote access to GT25 and GT27 Series HMIs via webserver functionality for useful production monitoring and system operation.
 
The status of equipment can be monitored remotely with your tablet or smart phone. In addition, you can view maintenance manuals to quickly check error details and find solutions. 

PS+ Pressure Sensor
Offers Improved Pneumatic and Hydraulic Measurement

PS+ series of rugged programmable pressure sensors are used to measure pneumatic or hydraulic pressure.  The sensor shows the measured pressure on an integrated multi-color display while the outputs communicate critical process information to a control system. 
 
The PS+ pressure sensors offer IO-Link capability for added functionality, auto-detect outputs, and a 340-degree rotatable sensor head to ensure simplified installation and commissioning. It also offers a stainless steel housing and measuring cell for maximum ruggedness. A large selection of process connections are available.

Cartesian Robots Offer Space and Cost Savings
Wide dynamic range and simpler compared to industrial robots

Cantilevered and gantry Cartesian robots offer several advantages in many applications compared to six-axis, selective compliance assembly robot arm (SCARA) and parallel robots. The most important of these advantages include greater workspace utilization, high dynamic range, simplicity and low cost.
Great functionality in a tiny package: the parallel kinematic actuator keeps moving loads low, and their footprint small.
Incredibly efficient at 90 picks/min: the high-speed-picker EXCT is the most dynamic and energy-efficient alternative to conventional solutions.
The low-cost linear axes ELGC and the mini slides EGSC offer an optimal ratio between installation space and working space.
AGV vs. AMR
What's the Difference?
More Than Moving Materials From One Place to Another

Until recently, traditional automated guided vehicles (AGVs) were the only option for automating internal transportation tasks. Today, however, AGVs are being challenged by the more sophisticated, flexible, and cost-effective technology of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). While AGVs and AMRs both move materials from one place to another, that is where the similarities cease.

Automation of internal logistics is a recurrent issue for both large and small companies. Why use employee resources to move materials around when you can automate these tasks and have employees focus on higher-value activities?

By automating material transportation, organizations can optimize productivity and can schedule deliveries more effectively to reduce production bottlenecks.
