Applied Robotics

Applied Robotics, Inc. is a leading global provider of specialised end-of-arm tooling and connectivity solutions for the automation and robotics industries. Founded in 1983, the ISO-9001- registered company has focused on boosting efficiencies and improving manufacturing processes since its inception. Applied Robotics works with other leading robotic manufacturers to provide customers with the latest automation technologies and solutions to satisfy complex automation needs. The company then designs and manufactures innovative automation service solutions, including tool change systems, collision sensors, grippers and connection systems.

Applied Robotics standardised on SOLIDWORKS solutions - implementing SOLIDWORKS Premium mechanical design and analysis software, and SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic design software - because they are easy to use, are well known among the engineering professionals that the company wants to recruit, and provide a cleaner, more integrated approach to mechanical and electrical schematics design.

Challenge

Improve the handling of the mechanical and electrical aspects of end-of-arm tooling and connectivity solutions development.

Solution

Implement SOLIDWORKS Premium mechanical design and analysis software, and SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic design software solutions,

Benefits

  • Enhanced quality of electrical schematics
  • Improved recruitment of trained designers to support growth
  • Realised more cost-effective electrical schematics solution
  • Facilitated system assembly

"We're collaborating more effectively since we switched to SOLIDWORKS because the combined solution simplifies things."
Tom Marcella, Solutions Manager, Applied Robotics

Read how by using SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic software, Applied Robotics has not only improved the quality of its electrical schematics, it has also realised better collaboration and documentation, resulting in productivity improvements during both design and assembly of its innovative automation solutions.
