KOSF's key project are the Smart Cubes, which are modular blocks that perform a dedicated task in the automation process, e.g. quality inspection, testing cells, robotic assembly, packaging and many more.
This article presents a research study that determined the optimal error recovery method from a cost standpoint. And, while this research study only considered cost in error recovery, it shows the potential value of error recovery planning in automation plants.
Nothing beats the positioning accuracy of linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN. Available in absolute and incremental versions and ideal for a variety of applications-including machine tools, semiconductor machines and medical machines-these measuring solutions combat a variety of issues that erode precision.
