Robot Democratization: A Machine for Every Manufacturer   

Cache   

With collaborative robots proliferating, we wanted to know who’s using these robots and what tasks they’re doing. Design News caught up with Walter Vahey, executive vice-president at Teradyne, a company that helps manufacturers gear up their automation. Vahey sees a real change in the companies that are deploying robotics. For years robots were tools only for the largest manufacturers. They required expensive care and feeding in the form of integrators and programming. Now, collaborative robots require configuration rather than programming, and they can be quickly switched from task to task.

Vahey talked about robot companies such as Universal Robots (UR) which produces robot arms, and MiR, a company that produces collaborative mobile robots. He explained how they’re putting robotics in the hands of smaller manufacturers that previously could not afford advanced automation. The difference is that these robots are less expensive, they can be set up for production without programming, and they can be quickly reconfigured to change tasks.

Universal Robots, MiR, Taradyne, robotics, robots, automation, small manufacturers

We asked Vahey what’s different about collaborative robots and what he’s seeing in robot adoption among smaller manufacturers.

Design News: Tell us about the new robots and how they’re getting deployed.

Walter Vahey: Companies such as Universal Robots and MiR are pioneering the robot space. They’re bringing automation to a broad class of users and democratizing automation. For small companies, the task at hand is to figure out how to fulfill their orders. It’s particularly challenging to manufacturers. In a tight labor market, manufacturers are facing more competition, growing demand, and higher expectations in quality.

Manufacturer can plug UR or MiR robots in very quickly. Everything is easy, from the specs up front to ordering to quickly arranging and training the robot. There’s no programming, and the robots have the flexibility to do a variety of applications. Every customer is dealing with labor challenges, so now they’re deploying collaborative robots to fulfill demand with high quality.

The whole paradigm has shifted now that you have a broader range of robot applications. You can easily and quickly bring in automation, plug it in ,and get product moving in hours or days rather than months. That’s what’s driving the growth at UR and MiR.

The Issue of Change Management

Design News: Is change management a hurdle?. Does the robot cause workforce disruption?

Walter Vahey: We really haven’t seen that as an issue. The overwhelming need to improve and fulfill demand at a higher quality level helps the manufacturers deploy. It outweighs other challenges. We help with the deployment, and the manufacturers are making the change easily.

We grew up as a supplier of electronic test equipment. Since 2015, we’ve entered the industrial automation market with a focus on the emerging collaborative robot space. We see that as a way to change the equation for manufacturers, making it faster and easier to deploy automation.

Design News: What about return on investment? Robotics can be a considerable investment for a small company/

Walter Vahey: The customers today are looking for relatively short ROI, and we’re seeing it from 6 months to a year. That’s a no brainer for manufacturers. They’re ready to jump in.

We work hard to make deployment less of an issue. We have an application builder, and we use it to prepare for deployment. The new user may have a pick-and-place operation. They choose the gripper, and we guide them to partners who make it easy to deploy.

The application builder helps the customer pick the gripper. The whole object is to get the customer deployed rapidly so the automation doesn’t sit. With MiR, the robot comes in, and we find an easy application for the mobile device. We take the robot around the plant and map it. We’ve work to guide customers through an application quickly and make the robot productive as soon as possible.

There are hundreds of partners that work with UR and MiR, providing grippers and end effectors. We have a system that customers can plug into. Customer can look at grippers from a wide range of companies. We’re not working just on the robot deployment. We work to get the whole system deployed so they can quickly get the ROI.

What Tasks Are the Robots Taking On?

Design News: Who in the plant is using the robots, and what tasks are involved?

Walter Vahey: There is a range of users. To be effective at training a robot and configuring it, the people best suited for it are the ones most aware of the task. To get the robot to be effective you have to know the task. By and large, the person who has been doing that task is best suited to train the robot. That person can then train other robots. Nobody’s better suited to do it than the people who know what needs to be done.

The tasks are broad set of applications. We automate virtually any task and any material movement. It’s not quite that simple, but it’s close. With UR, we’re doing machine learning, grinding, packing, pick-and-place, repetitive tasks, welding. It’s a very broad set of applications. In materials it’s also very broad. Parts going from a warehouse to a work cell, and then from the work cell to another work cell, up to a 1000-kilo payload. We’re moving robots into warehousing and logistics space, even large pieces of metal. The robots are well suited for long runs of pallets of materials.

Rob Spiegel has covered automation and control for 19 years, 17 of them for Design News. Other topics he has covered include supply chain technology, alternative energy, and cyber security. For 10 years, he was owner and publisher of the food magazine Chile Pepper.

Upgrading Strategy Using WiX   

Cache   

Originally posted on: http://staffofgeeks.net/afeng/archive/2007/01/14/103611.aspx

As described in the WiX (Windows Installer XML) tutorial, upgrades can be categorized into three following categories:

  • Small Updates:  Very small changes to existing files.  Version number stays the same.
  • Minor Ugrades: Small changes, but no new files are added or removed.  Change the the version number (most likely, change the minor or the build).
  • Major Ugrades: New files are added or removed.  Definitely change the version number (major, minor or build).

In my opinion, the first two options are not as useful for a typical upgrade when new features are added.  One of the biggest restrictions for the first two options is that you can not add or remove new files.  This is especially true when the creation of MSI is automated.  On top of that, you cannot setup upgrade conditions.  For example, an upgrade from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1 if 1.0.0 is installed.  This feature only works for major upgrades.  Normally, the user can click on the MSI to install the software. If you do a small update or minor upgrades you cannot simply just click on the MSI.  The only way to invoke the upgrade mode is to pass command line arguments to the MSI.

I prefer to always do the the major upgrade to have maximum flexibility and avoid all the problems described above.  Of course there are down sides to this approach as well.

  • All the files must be deployed every time in order to do an upgrade.
  • By MSI definition, major versions can live side by side with an older version.

The first one is not a big deal if your upgrade contains significant change because chances are MSI will force you to do a major upgrade anyway.  The second problem is a little bit more annoying because it might be undesireable to have many old versions lingering around.  One way to solve this problem is to transparently uninstall the old version before the new version.  This works fine except it probably will wipe out any user defined settings if they are stored in a file that was deployed by the original MSI during an uninstall.

Overall, I still prefer the major updates strategy over the other two.

Windows PowerShell - Unix comes to Windows   

Cache   

Originally posted on: http://brustblog.net/archive/2006/06/18/82258.aspx

Windows PowerShell (formerly known as “Monad”) is a Microsoft's answer to the power and flexibility of the Unix command shells. It should finally complete the Windows management picture by providing a solid command line shell to administer Windows systems. PowerShell is part of Vista, but fortunately for all of us, it is being released separately and is available for Windows XP as well.

PowerShell is a command line shell that is:

  • as interactive and composable as bash/ksh (or any other Unix shell)
  • as programmatic as Perl or Ruby
  • as production oriented as the AS400 CL or VMS DCL languages
  • allows access to data stores as easy as if they were a file system
  • provides “man-style“ help with a rich schema and searching capabilities

PowerShell seems to have incorporated many of the best features of the Unix shells, such as:

  • series of profile files that can be run at startup (or logon)
  • command aliasing
  • prompt customization
  • tab completion
  • many preferences controllable via variables

Scripting

  • Supports existing scripting models
  • UNIX model of text processing including regular expressions
  • Visual Basic Script model of COM automation
  • Supports scripting .NET objects
  • Support loose, strong, and extensible typing models
  • Uniform syntax to access to a wide range of types
    • WMI, XML, COM, ADSI, ADO
  • Rich variable semantics (typed, read-only, constraints, descriptions)
  • Rich operators and control structures (Visual C#-like with access to cmds and utilities)
  • Functions (positional, named, typed, constrained params)

Text Processing Model

  • NET String class is the foundation
    • Clone, CompareTo, Contains, CopyTo, EndsWith, Equals, IndexOf, IndexOfAny, Insert,  LastIndexOf, LastIndexOfAny, Length, PadLeft, PadRight, Remove, Replace, Split, StartsWith, Substring, ToCharArray, ToLower, ToLowerInvariant, ToString, ToUpper, ToUpperInvariant, Trim, TrimEnd, TrimStart
  • Native support for useful datatypes
    • REGEX, XML, Arrays, Associative arrays,
  • Rich string operators
    • +, *, -f, -replace, -match, -like, -eq, -ne, gt, -ge, -lt, -le
    • Implicit/explicit casting and coercion
  • Here-strings
  • Rich control structures
  • Rich utilities
    • Select-String, foreach, group, select, sort, where

function top ($property=“Handles”, [int]$count=10)
{
   Get-Process | sort $property | select –first $count
}
 
For those of you who have written Unix shell scripts before (and maybe a lot of people who haven't) the syntax should look familiar. This declares a function named “top” which takes two paramters (both with defaults) and returns a sorted list of the top $count processes sorted by $property.
