Laser Marking for Traceability: Forged Parts
Traceability is essential to understanding your manufacturing processes. Subtle patterns in process variation are only detected over longer time scales. To be useful, process data must be captured completely, accurately, and automatically.
Virtual Reality for High Performance Factory Automation Design
The reality of building custom automation equipment is that it often means shipping the prototype. Getting the design right the first time is essential to managing technical and schedule risks. In this post, we share how Kinemetrix uses virtual reality technology in our custom machine design process to create consistently high-performance factory automation systems. We invite you to enjoy this video on the topic:
UK Engineering Students Win First Prize for Senior Capstone Project
Congratulations to our team of brilliant University of Kentucky engineering students. These seniors won the capstone design competition for developing an advanced part feeding system prototype embodying our MagicFeeder™ technology. Special thanks to Dr. Regina Hannemann and the ECE program at UofKY for the opportunity to work with this talented group. Bright futures ahead! Learn more about Kinemetrix part feeding automation
KINEMETRIX Expands Electric Vehicle Assembly Solutions
2019 was a year of unprecedented activity, innovation, and growth. The automotive industry is reinventing itself toward electrification, driving the adoption of new materials, processes, and design architectures. For the customers we serve, the current landscape is creating abundant opportunity, and risk. Fortunately, scaling novel, prototype-scale processes into robust manufacturing systems is at the core of what we do.
Supporting High School Science
The Kinemetrix team of future-engineers wrapped up their high school senior year internship in impressive form. Kelly Kral, Nathan Rukavina and Chris Duncan of Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School used their skills and the resources at Kinemetrix to develop a Proprioceptive Industrial Robot Gripper. Their work became the basis of their science fair submission; a submission a lot more impressive than the typical baking soda…
