Products
Forge O/S

Forge O/S is a drag-and-drop flowchart programming interface for controlling and automating robots. It provides a common operating system for use across many robotic brands such as Yaskawa, Fanuc, Universal Robots, ABB, and Kuka. The Forge O/S platform allows users to control every component of industrial robots, peripherals, PLCs, and machine tools.

Task Canvas

Task Canvas is the user interface for robotic automation made by READY Robotics. It is a drag-and-drop, flowchart based, touchscreen interface that does not require users to have coding experience to program robotic automation workflows. READY Robotics claims is takes two days of in-depth training to get users fully trained on how to use Task Canvas for programming robotic automation tasks.

Forge/Sight

Forge/Sight is the industrial internet of things (IoT) and analytics dashboard provided by READY Robotics. It automatically records data tied to each work cell and organizes it into a production dashboard to view real-time data, store all data in the cloud, and allow mobile viewing of data.

Forge/Ctrl

Forge/Ctrl is made for the Forge O/S and Task Canvas platform and is capable of interfacing with machine tools, PLCs, vision systems, force sensors, and other robotic peripherals using standard I/O interfaces such as fieldbus connectors and pneumatics. The Forge/Ctrl platform is IP54 rated and is a pre-packaged industrial personal computer. Out-of-the-box features of Forge/Ctrl include: 6 peripheral pneumatic outputs, 4 end effector pneumatic outputs, wifi and LAN connectivity, dedicated RS485 port for end effectors, 8 input 8 output 24V I/O expandable, dedicated 24V I/O for end effectors, and a PLC breakout box.

Forge/Station

Forge/Station is a customizable robotic automation system featuring a robotic arm of the users choice mounted to a mobile base and powered by Forge/CTRL with Task Canvas. Forge/Station can machine load and unload, pick and place, handle different materials, inspect parts, be used for palletizing, case picking, screw and nut driving tasks, and pneumatic tasks. The company claims their Forge/Station products can launch an automation pilot within 45 days, reduce programming task time by 80% compared to similar products by using task templates, and does not require a protective cage for its use.
