|Save time and money|
It takes more than good products to effectively solve an application; it takes good engineers that understand how to integrate products into a complete solution. Our engineers specialize in automation engineering and in addition to being able to help you select the correct components we can use our CAD capabilities to help you in the design process.
Olympus Controls offers complimentary Computer Aided Design (CAD) services to help you reduce your overall project costs, ensure that you have the right solutions and shorten your time to market. Don't waste your valuable time looking for CAD models or drawing the parts yourself when we easily and quickly provide these to you.

|iDrive Conveyor |
iDrive merges advanced drive and control technologies with the compact design of the 2200 Series by integrating the motor, gearbox and motor controller into a single, space saving package. Dorner has literally redefined the application footprint for small product conveyors.
The groundbreaking iDrive feature is ideal for a variety of packaging and industrial applications where space is tight or additional room is needed around the conveyor.
|New 6-Axis Robot |
The new DENSO VS-Series six-axis articulated robots offer the world's highest speed and precision for robots of their class, with cycle times from 0.37 to 0.33 sec. and repeatability from ±0.03 to ±0.02 mm. Reaches are from 500 to 900 mm and payload capacities from 4 to 7 kg.
The VS robots are also extremely flexible, with an even more compact design than previous models, including ultraslim arms to facilitate integration and a new optional bottom-side cable connection that saves valuable floor space. The robots can be mounted on the floor, ceiling or wall with no special hardware needed.
|Application Story |
| High Precision Robotic Vision Inspection System
harnessed the power of the VS series robot from Denso Robotics
and provided vision to the system with a Cognex
system. The inspection system was able to provide accurate and reliable information to the manufacturer of these safety-critical parts. The key components and the technical support came from Olympus Controls
to solve this challenge.
This project had many requirements, not the least of which was a 2-micron accuracy and 10% Gage R&R. One of the major challenges was to position the part in the same orientation each time to ensure repeatability. DWFritz
was able to do this by optimizing the robot tool path and by carefully marrying vision algorithms and motion control to obtain the best throughput possible and exceed
desired precision. Some components required 55 inspections while achieving these goals.
DWFritz Automation specializes in the integration of machine vision, robotics, and high precision technologies. They put their capabilities to the test by inspecting small medical implant components as seen in the video below.
