Autocalibration(TM) method for intelligent control of robots reduces set-up and replacement time for wafer-handling robots by giving them the intelligence to "teach themselves." A robot controlled with this method moves to a coarse wafer placement, and then, using proprietary methods, fine-tunes the precise placement location. This keeps transport reliability high because robot action is based on real position information rather than the commanded tolerances of subjective operator-based teaching.

Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Weaned on the relatively effortless connectivity of today’s massive variety of consumer electronic products, automation users in the IIoT will likely not tolerate too many competing, piecemeal standards for long. And the Industrial Internet Consortium is trying to preempt history.
