Each method has its benefits and failures and each will be discussed. REGISTER Cycle Time Optimization for Higher Productivity
Date: Thursday, December 12, 2013
Time: 12:00 noon EST
Speaker: Adil Shafi, President, ADVENOVATION This webinar will start with the design decision concepts of integrated controls, simulation, robot placement, envelope, reach, payload and moment of inertia.
Motion tuning, trajectory profiles, speed, acceleration, settling opportunities, multiple pickups and Z height management topics will be covered.

"Vision guided robotics systems matured in the two-dimensional arena first," says Adil Shafi, President of ADVENOVATION Inc. (Rochester Hills, Michigan).
Integrators, robot end-users, teachers, students, newcomers and experts, can learn about vision-guided robotics through a free webinar hosted by RIA
on Thursday, June 7 at 12:00 PM EDT.
The Robots: Vision Guidance Technology (2D) webinar will cover basic concepts, good applications, product examples, flexible tooling, hard tooling, vacuum, vision and other related topics.
"I will show application videos and a PowerPoint presentation to provide a background of two-dimensional vision guidance applications," says Shafi

Vision for Service Robots is researched and written for Vision Systems Design by Adil Shafi, president of Advenovation and well-known authority on vision-guided robotics.
It is based on his extensive research as well as interviews with leaders in robotics at Waseda University, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon and MIT; researchers from Fraunhofer IPA, NIST and the Volpe Center of the US Department of Transportation; and experts at Willow Garage, iRobot, Intuitive Surgical, Hoaloha Robotics, RoadNarrows Robotics, Sony, Kuka and Qinetiq.

2D VGR AutoRacking for spot welding truck bed inners (Courtesy of Adil Shafi)
According to the inventor and installer, Adil Shafi
, this was one of the first AutoRacking solutions in the automotive industry and is still in production today.
"It was implemented at the Chrysler Twinsburg Stamping Plant in Ohio during the summer of 2001," says Shafi, President of ADVENOVATION Inc., a vision guided robotics innovation and systems integration firm in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
"Since then, hundreds of similar solutions have been implemented in the industry."
The application incorporates six ceiling-mounted Cognex In-Sight cameras (visible in the photograph) and a Nachi robot to rack the 6-foot or 8-foot-long truck bed inners.
Six cameras are used to perform rack validation checks and two cameras perform linked field-of-view offsetting for proper part placement.
"We had to integrate this solution in six weeks," says Shafi
"The challenges included having the cameras mounted 12 feet above the parts to avoid welding sparks, while viewing the 8-foot-long parts within 2-mm repeatability."
says the system has been running for 12 years now, and over 50 more have been implemented in another 10 Chrysler plants.
