Chicago – Make plans to attend the IMTS 2014 Conferences to learn about PLC Robot Control - A New Trend in Robotics.
DATE: Monday, September 8 from 10:00 AM - 10:55 AM ROOM: W-192A
SPEAKER: James C. Cooper, Vice President Sales and Marketing, KUKA Robotics Corp.
One of the newest and most rapidly changing trends in robotics in a unified control solution approach to the entire cell system integration. Utilizing this approach, an industrial robot can now be programmed and controlled via a PLC or machine tool CNC controller.
This approach offers many advantages; such as reduced system integration costs, reduced end user training requirements, and improved operator ease of use.
This presentation will discuss technically how this is accomplished; review the factors to consider in an application of this technology; and will show real world applications of this technology including using the robot for CNC machining functionality.
This is a new trend in robotics as it allows end users to add robotic automation without the need to learn new programming languages and/or add trying to find additional staff with unique controls knowledge in an increasing skilled worker shortage marketplace.
The educational and informative conferences run Sept. 8-11, 2014 in the West Building, Level 1. To register for this or any session, visit http://www.imts.com/education/imtsconference.html.
