What's trending on DoF this week? Automating a product control process, picking metal sheets with a vacuum, industrial robots and production engineering, locking teach pendant, and much more. Get the latest news from automation Pros!

Automating a Product Control Process

Bryan posted this week his issue of product control where the products are cleaned manually by an operator at specific product points. He would like for this process to be automated and is wondering if it's possible to create a path between specific reference points. Take a further look into his project and suggest your solution!

Picking Thin Flat Sheets With a Vacuum

Grady_Turner is trying to pick up stacked metal sheets using a vacuum. However, there is an issue where the sheets stick together because of all the air that has been pressed out in between them. Grady tried several different techniques but every time one or more pieces in the stack are moved out of position. Do you have any advice to share?

Industrial Robots and Production Engineering

BrazilRobots is a university student and studies production engineering in Brazil. He questioned the community by asking what is the most important thing for a production engineer to know about industrial robots. With your experience do you have anything to share?

Locking Teach Pendant

Abeachy_HG24 started an interesting discussion about locking the teach pendant to keep the operator from leaving the main screen on the run tab. A few pros gave their input on the issue and what they experienced with their own operators. Take a look here.
