I found a link to a machine on youtube that automatically assemblys hive frames.
[nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx0ZRGYXLhs"]YouTube - Brandt Automation Bee Hive Foundation Frame Assembler[/nomedia]
Can anyone provide links or help on how one of these would run. What type of software and controls would be used?
I'm pretty sure that I can do each station seperately with existing cnc equipment or some of the pic/arm chips with feedback sensors.
But how is it done professionaly?
The url was in the description on the vid.
In truth, that appears very much to be a process that could be set up quite well without software at all, simply using all mechanical or pneumatic functions to drive it, limiting electricity for use to run indicators for failure points, such as empty feeders, or the like, which would cause a stoppage.
