The Robotiq team spent the last few months working on a first robot monitoring system. Insights is a web application that monitors Universal Robots performance. It gives a real-time view of the robot’s key performance indicators in operation.

With this data, manufacturing engineers will be able to improve their product quality and increase process efficiency. Automation engineers will take advantage of this information to optimize robot performance by reducing cycle time and diagnosing failures.

Production managers will see the long term trends in robot performance to improve planning and overall productivity. Insights’ dashboard also provides operators with real-time status and alerts to optimize production.
