Forge Suite Unifies Cross Robotic Platform Programming and Control

READY Robotics announces the launch of 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), which together empowers anyone to intuitively control industrial and collaborative robots.

Eliminate the drag on productivity caused by the complicated programming commonly found in industrial robots. The Forge suite of products utilizes one user interface across multiple robotic brands creating a programming experience so far beyond easy it feels intuitive with no previous robotic experience required.

With a small installation footprint and an IP54 rating designed to withstand heavy industrial environments, Forge/Ctrl brings a plug’n’play experience to setting up your hardware. Easily plug in pneumatic peripherals, sensors and all manner of grippers through standardized interfaces. Forge supports leading 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. Including wide variety of peripherals, grippers, sensors and pneumatic devices without ever having previous robotic programming experience. Field tested, customer approved and available now on FANUC and Universal Robots with support for ABB, Denso, KUKA and Yaskawa coming soon.
