Support in promoting flexible manufacturing systems
Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) is a major Taiwanese research institute with research fields ranging from mechanical engineering to material science, biomedics, electronics and green energy. Their machine tool technology center focuses on machine, robot and controller design to provide customers with small flexible manufacturing cells.
To promote their flexible manufacturing system by presenting their offering more visually, ITRI adopted Visual Components as their design and development environment. They have also implemented an add-on module, which allows the software to connect directly to ITRI’s CNC and robot controllers. In total, the implementation took about three months to complete.
