March 01, 2017: A Global Automaker Selects Dynalog for Robotic Accuracy for their Laser Cutting Application
Dynalog is selected by a global automaker to provide Absolute Accuracy, Temperature Compensation, and Guidance for robots performing laser cutting process. A robot-mounted sensor is utilized to acquire the calibration and guidance measurements. A robot-mounted sensor reduces the number of sensors required to perform the robot guidance process. These laser cutting cells will soon go into full production.
 
Ceramic based calibration targets are mounted within the robot-cells. The measurements of the calibration targets are utilized by Dynalog's DynaFlex software to identify the Absolute Accuracy robot-cell parameters. Furthermore, periodic measurements of the calibration targets are obtained automatically (few measurements during transfer of the car), and used to identify the change in the robot-cell parameters. The critical robot laser cutting positions are compensated for the change in the robot-cell parameters. Moreover, during each production cycle a few car datum features are measured by the robot-mounted sensor. The accurate location of the car is identified based on these measurements.

October 18, 2016: Research Study of Absolute Accuracy of Robots Using Dynalog's CompuGauge System
Polytechnica University of Romania conducted a research study to determine the Absolute Accuracy of Industrial robots using the performance analysis module of Dynalog's CompuGauge system. The CompuGauge performance analysis module is based on ISO-9283 and ANSI RIA 15.05 standards. The results of the study is available at the following link: http://www.wseas.us/e-library/conferences/2013/Vouliagmeni/MRME/MRME-08.pdf.
 
October 5, 2016: Ford Selects AccuBeam System for Robot Temperature Compensation
Ford has selected Dynalog's AccuBeam robot temperature compensation system for many of its high precision robotic-based applications, e.g. laser cutting, form & pierce, etc., that are being installed in various plants around the world. The AccuBeam system automatically compensates for robot drift due to changes in ambient temperature, and due to self-heating, thus maintaining the robot's repeatability over-time. The AccuBeam system is a proven production ready in-line system that has been successfully compensating robots for more than10 years. The AccuBeam system includes the required automatic communication with the robot controller, the AccuBeam sensor, and other peripheral equipment.

May 5, 2016: Adaptive Control of Robot for Aerospace Drilling
Dynalog is chosen by an aerospace integrator to provide accuracy solution for two robots performing drilling and routing of their parts. The DynaGuide Adaptive Control system performs automatic in-line compensation of the robot's position based on measurements of the TCP from a Northern Digital photogrammetry system. The robot-cell contains two Fanuc robots on 20 meters long tracks. Two photogrammetry systems are used by the DynaGuide software to automatically monitor and correct the TCP(xyz & orientation) of both the robots. Dynalog's DynaCal system provides the initial robot-cell Absolute Accuracy required to reduce the number of corrective iterations performed by the DynaGuide Adaptive Control system. Furthermore, Dynalog's AutoCal system is also used to monitor and recover the robots TCP and zero-position-mastering for changes due to e.g. crash, change of motors, replacement of end-effector, etc. The achieved robotic drilling position accuracy is only limited by the accuracy of the measurement system and the resolution of the robot.

April 12, 2016: Absolute Accuracy for Robot Trimming
Dynalog is selected by a system integrator to provide robot-cell accuracy for a robotic trimming process for a helicopter manufacturer. A Kawasaki robot is utilized in this project to perfrom he trimming operation on helicopter doors, and other panes. The DynaCal system is utilized to identify the Absolute Accuracy parameters of the robot-cell, which include the robot DH parameters, non-geometric robot parameters, TCP, and the location of the fixture/part. The robot programs, created in a simulation software (Delcam), are then compensated utilizing the identified Absolute Accuracy parameters to account for the differences between the simulation robot-cell and the actual robot-cell. The compensated trimming robot positions meet the accuracy requirements of the helicopter panels.
 
March 16, 2016: Dynalog  Products Adapted by Chinese Robot Manufacturers
We are pleased to announce that Dynalog's Robot Calibration and Performance Analysis products have been adapted by majority (over 25) of the new Chinese robot manufacturers. Specifically, the DynaCal Robot Calibration System is utilized by the robot manufacturers to identify the Robot-Cell geometric (DH) parameters and non-geometric parameters. Whereas, the Compugauge Robot Measurement and Performance Analysis System helps the robot manufacturers to measure, visualize, and analyze the static as well as dynamic performance of their robots. Furthermore, the CompuGauge software includes the both of the internationally recognized robot performance standards: ISO 9283 and ANSI/RIA.05-1/2.

 

February 12, 2016: Dynalog is Selected for Robot-Cell Absolute Accuracy by an Aeronautic Fiber Placement System Provider
Dynalog has been selected by an aerospace system integrator to provide robot-cell Absolute Accuracy for their robotic fiber placement product. A KUKA or ABB robot moving on long tracks is utilized in the fiber placement systems. Additionally, the part is mounted on a rotating positioner. The integrator uses the DynaCal system to identify the Absolute Accuracy parameters of the robot-cell. Furthermore, with the identified robot-cell parameters, the DynaCal Filter Module compensates the robot positions created in a simulation environment to account for the differences between the simulation robot-cell and the actual robot-cell. The precision provided by the calibrated robot-cell meets the requirements of the aeronautic industry.

June 1, 2015 Dynalog Awarded Patent for its AccuBeam System
Dynalog has recently been awarded the patent for its AccuBeam  Robot Temperature Compensation System. The AccurBeam system offers an inline robot calibration solution designed to quickly and automatically guarantee the performance of robotic equipment. Adaptable to a wide variety of robotic applications and compatible with most robot types. The AccuBeam system can detect robot drift due to ambient temperature changes/self-heating of the robot. Furthermore, it can also detect sudden changes to the robot structure itself (including joint offsets) as well as its Tool Center Point (TCP). The identified robot drift/changes are then automatically corrected for without any operator intervention. This means no "guessing" of what went wrong; no valuable time wasted re-teaching robot programs, and no loss in production quality.
