Unifying Cross-Platform Industrial Robotic Programming and Control

READY Robotics recently launched the Forge suite of products unifying cross robotic platform programming and control. The Forge suite consists of a hardware controller (Forge/Ctrl) running robust software (Forge/OS), designed to together empower anyone to intuitively control industrial and collaborative robots (cobots).

"The Forge suite of products utilizes one user interface across multiple robotic brands creating a programming experience so easy it feels intuitive with no previous robotic experience required," said a company spokesperson.

With a small installation footprint and an IP54 rating designed to withstand heavy industrial environments, Forge/Ctrl brings a plug & play experience to setting up hardware. Easily plug in pneumatic peripherals, sensors, and all manner of grippers through standardized interfaces. Forge supports gripper brands like Piab, Schunk and Robotiq. Forge/Ctrl even makes it possible to control older machine tools without complicated electrical integration.

Forge/OS software allows users to quickly and intuitively create sophisticated programs via touchscreen while controlling everything hooked up to the Forge/Ctrl hardware. It is available now on FANUC and Universal Robots with support for ABB, Denso, KUKA and Yaskawa coming soon.
