Vention release aimed at code-free programming for robotics and industrial automation
- June 22, 2022
Montreal-based Vention, a cloud-based manufacturing automation platform (MAP), has launched MachineLogic V4.0.
The company is billing the launch as one of its biggest releases since the initial product launch in 2018. Offered on a freemium and subscription basis, new users can leverage the full feature set of MachineLogic in its cloud version, with subscriptions required for those seeking to deploy equipment on the factory floor.
MachineLogic is one of several core products of Vention's manufacturing automation platform (MAP). Focusing on code-free programming, the cloud and edge software provides a unified programming interface across robot brands (Universal Robots, Fanuc, and Doosan), actuators (linear axis, conveyors, and pneumatics) and I/Os (digital and analog). Expert and emerging automation practitioners can program robot cells and automated equipment using simple visual sequences from their web browser, or directly on a teach pendant connected to the equipment. The technology saves practitioners from having to learn several proprietary programming languages specific to each robot, PLC, and motor-drive manufacturer.
"MachineLogic is key to our mission of democratizing industrial automation, and subscribers can expect a series of additional features in Q3 and Q4 of 2022," said Etienne Lacroix, CEO and founder of Vention. "We are only scratching the surface of the user experiences that are possible when you combine industrial automation hardware and engineering software."
MachineLogic V4.0 will be available as of July 25th, with online training and education webinar starting the same week. For more information, including various subscription options and pricing, visit Vention at vention.io/programming.
