Inspiring the Future

DWFritz proudly sponsors local high school and college robotics clubs as part of its long-term vision. Read more about these organizations and see their award-winning robots designed for competition.

Good Vibrations? Maybe Not.

Vibration affects productivity through its impact on the accuracy, repeatability, and throughput of precision manufacturing equipment. As vibration is minimized, system accuracy and repeatability will increase. It may not be possible to completely eliminate all vibration from the environment, but much can be controlled with careful machine design up front that considers all potential sources of vibration and incorporates the appropriate neutralizing techniques.

Kinematics in Fixturing Design

Understanding and applying kinematics in fixturing design goes a long way to improving repeatability and accuracy. Read more and see examples.

SplitVis™: One Machine Vision Camera Does The Work Of Two

SplitVis™ technology is the ingenious concept that makes it possible for one machine vision camera to do the work of two by creatively using angled mirrors. This saves both cost and space in automated machine design.

Time For Some R & R

If you can't trust your measurement system, you can't trust the data it produces. Read about the basics of Gage R & R and why it's important.

Minimizing Abbe Errors

Abbe errors can dramatically affect machine accuracy, but there are ways to minimize them with careful machine design. Read how.

Using Line Scanning For Large or Cylindrical Parts

Using line scanning to capture a detailed image of either a large or cylindrical part has advantages. Find out what they are.

Scenes From A Show

Automate 2013 was a big success! Read about our experience and see a few photos from the show.

Bolts Flying

"It had 27 bins and the fasteners were flying! At first, they were flying all over the room." Watch the video to hear the story of one of our early machines, the Boeing Bolt Sorter, as told by our founder, Dennis Fritz.
