Augmented Reality on Smartphone Simplifies Robot Installations
ABB’s new RobotStudio Augmented Reality (AR) viewer app allows the use of a smartphone or tablet to provide a convenient way of visualizing where and how robotic automation can fit into a process. Added to the PC-based ABB RobotStudio offline programming software, the AR viewer app can be used to test any model created in RobotStudio, enabling users to get an idea of the size and scale of a robot or robot cell and how it can be deployed on a factory floor to fit around any existing production equipment. Using AR technology, the app overlays the modelled solution into the real-life production environment, with the ability to scale it to full size and rotate it through a variety of angles to achieve the best result.

New Dust Collector Optimized for Fiber Laser Cutting
The faster cutting speeds of fiber laser machines create new challenges for laser cutting dust control, leading RoboVent to develop the Senturion, optimized for the volume and type of dust produced by fiber laser cutting.

AMADA Introduces the World’s First Fiber Laser Cutting System with Locus Beam Control (LBC)
AMADA’s LBC Technology creates infinite locus patterns—ensuring the optimum beam shape for each specific cutting application. This results in the highest-quality cuts in both stainless and mild steel and the best edge quality in aluminum with virtually no dross. The VENTIS 3015 AJ leverages a high-brightness fiber laser oscillator to maintain optimum quality of the high-energy density laser beam. Unique cutting capabilities and exceptional speed enable the 4kW VENTIS to easily rival fiber lasers utilizing much higher wattage at a considerably lower operating cost.
