We have all heard of the Dog Whisperer. It’s been viewed as the ultimate guide to providing solutions for your problematic pooches. Each episode documents the remarkable transformations that take place by teaching and helping dogs and their owners achieve happier lives together.
Great if you have dogs, but what if you are having problems with “production” man’s other best friend?
Manufacturers in any industry from a large OEM to a small systems integrator are often challenged with properly teaching and programming their production robots. Getting them to correctly perform the required operations and tasks on the factory floor can be as difficult as trying to keep Fido from eating your favorite pair of slippers.
You can’t encourage them to sit, stay or spot weld with their favorite squeaky toy or just sit down with them and have a conversation over a nice cup of coffee at break time. Manufacturers need the right solutions to ensure their productions systems best utilize the robots for optimum performance, efficiency and flexibility.
The latest installment of (you guessed it), the Robot Whisperers, the online e-series by Dassault Systemes, robot experts Mike and Tony will show a few tricks to better assign and validate spot welds with robots in production.
Now, I am not talking about getting your robots to roll over and beg. 😉 But the guys will demonstrate how to simulate and validate robotic spot welding applications utilizing 3D software to help your robots become more loyal and obedient.[youtube width=”465″ height=”286″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU3SUC7TAFM
In episode 3, Robotology for Spot Welding, Mike and Tony will also discuss how 3D simulation allows engineers to create “what-if” scenarios in the virtual environment with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. That’s certainly better than dragging a bunch of robots around the shop floor to physically test the different programs necessary for production. Plus they will have some fun talking about the solar system and Aunt Irene’s Farm – no kidding!
So if you are having relationship issues with your robots and just can’t get them to accurately perform the 1000’s of spot welds they do every day, a doggy treat or a pat on the servo motor is not going to help you. Log onto the Robot Whisperers today and see why this e-series is your ultimate guide to happier, healthy relationships with your robots!
