PerfectEdge, a complete, full function robotic solution, meets the challenges of tight tolerance chamfering, deburring or finishing processes, while offering a non-touch teach method of programming. Designed in collaboration with Arrow Gear, it includes a six-axis Motoman DX1350D industrial robot and a precision indexer with hollow chuck controlled by a Yaskawa Sigma-5 servo motor for fixturing shafted gears.

The cell has an eight-slot protected tool holder, and an Alfred Jaeger spindle that provides the muscle, speed control and holding torque to perform the most demanding tasks. PerfectEdge has the capacity to process 20-inch diameter by 10-inch cylindrical parts. Designed on a common base with fork pockets, PerfectEdge can easily be deployed or relocated.

Programming is easy with menu-driven material removal software. Motoman Robotics’ powerful G-Code/Points Importer off-line programming software drives the robot from your part data. G-Code converter translates the CAM file into programs that are downloaded to the robot controller.

The PerfectEdge cell features a polycarbonate and aluminum full safety enclosure with electrically interlocked access doors. A particle and fume extraction system is included, making PerfectEdge easy to connect to an air handling system. Repetitive stress injuries and operator fatigue are eliminated, reducing scrap rates and improving safety. It is compliant to ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 and other relevant ISO and CSA safety standards.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
