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:
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
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.
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…
The Formula SAE Team at the University of Kentucky successfully competed at FSAE Lincoln. The team passed the mechanical evaluation and then completed in the autocross and endurance events. Kinemetrix is proud of the teams efforts and were are pleased to have been a sponsor of the team. Great job by these talented engineers.
