    Soon we reach the "digital convergence".
    Then it's only a matter of time until the machines can out think us. They will know everything to be known at light speed.
    They are faster than us, work without pay, don't take breaks, don't argue with the boss.............

    Ready Robotics makes a pretty cool system that is mobile and flexible. Also they rent monthly.

    And would you happen to be affiliated with Ready Robotics?

    Edit (I googled them): The whole point of Universal Robots UR line is that you don't have to pay an integrator like you would with industrial robots. It doesn't matter how big the sticker they put on the UR is, they're not hiding what it is very well.

    And based on the other stuff I saw, they're doing a pretty crappy job of integrating.

    "They" = UR or Ready Robotics?

    They are a small startup. Don't appear to be affiliated with UR other than they use UR equipment. Spun out of Johns Hopkins.

    Ready Robotics - Not impressed at all with what I saw. Seems like a regurgitated mess of other people's ideas but with a twist: they offer leasing options!

    Probably just another bunch of geeks chasing the robot dollars. I will bet not a single one of them has any manufacturing experience.

    Here's an option for a low cost robot arm Robotic Arms

    It includes process control I/O, 8 relay out, 8 program wait inputs,and 4 program interrupt(limit)inputs so the small shop doesn't need a PLC for integration. The price is under $6k.

    Looks a bit wobbly and slow, but if you are not driven by cycle time, it could probably work. What is max weight at end-of-arm? Your name suggests that you are affiliated with the maker. You should make that known.

    I'm sorry. Yes, I'm the guy who developed it and I own the company that makes them with pride in the USA. It might look (is) wobbly because the 80/20 that it's mounted to is on top of a folding table with wheels so the table wobbles a bit during acceleration and deceleration. Speed was sacrificed to keep the price down so it's really not a solution for fast cycle production. It was developed for loading our machines, doing some assembly work and to offer small shops like ours a cost effective and relatively easy way to integrate a robotic arm. We have picked up and moved 11 pound press anvil plates. Thanks for looking.

    I do wish you luck. Are you at I.M.T.S. this year? Just being a smart-ass. Maybe next time.
