Sizing your Actuator just got EASIER! – WEBINAR 

We’re excited to show you how VIRTUAL ENGINEER works!

Hosted by Angie DeNardo of Parker Pneumatics.

What is Virtual Engineer? 

It is an innovative, free online design tool for linear motion applications in automation.

It can save engineering time with three simple steps:
  • Enter application details using the intuitive interface
  • Size and select products that meet the demands of your application
  • Get a quote, share your project and download files easily

What we will cover:

Angie will walk through a step-by-step demonstration of sizing and selection of a Pneumatic Actuator using the free online program. 

She’ll demonstrate how easily a user can enter application specifications (speed, load, external forces, etc.) and quickly navigate to accurately sized product options.

She’ll also discuss some of the features such as: product life estimation, “Compare” function for multiple products (including price), CAD model availability, and a “My Projects” area, allowing engineers to create, save and share projects to revisit at a later time.

Meet: Angie DeNardo

Angie is the Pneumatic Territory Manager for Parker Hannifin, which is the world’s leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies. She is a Certified Fluid Power Specialist who has spent 3 years serving various markets including packaging, pharmaceutical, food processing, government and machine builders.

Pneumatic Machine Safety Discussion – WEBINAR: 

LET’S TALK ABOUT SAFETY

DID YOU KNOW that if your machine isn’t brought to a Safe State, it isn’t a matter of IF an accident will happen. But WHEN it will happen.

From components to full solutions, at RG Group we work with the best in the industry and stay focused on safety.

Join us for our Pneumatic Machine Safety Discussion presented live, together with our partners at Parker Hannifin and Certified Machinery Safety Expert, Linda Caron to learn answers to the following important Safety questions:

  • Do you know what “Safe State” means? and what is involved in bringing your machines to a Safe State?
  • Do you know why it is important to remove trapped residual energy from your machines? What is involved? And how to do it safely?
  • Are you ANSI ISO 12100 compliant? And/or know what you need to do to comply?
  • What are YOUR questions? Bring them to the Webinar Discussion and we will do our best to answer them on the 27th.

    WHEN: March 27th at 1:30pm
    WHERE: Online – Wherever you are!

    MiR WEBINAR: 

    Clearing up Misconceptions of Autonomous Mobile Robots

    • “Robots are taking jobs.”
    • “They are expensive and time-consuming to deploy.”
    • “They are too complicated to program.”
    • “[Robots] are not safe for humans to work around.”

    We’ve all heard these before.
    They are common myths surrounding the robotics industry.

    Join RG Robotics and host Patrick Gross as he reveals the truth and debunks these popular misconceptions and more about autonomous mobile robots and examines how a mobile robotics platform can streamline warehouse and manufacturing operations.

    Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are truly part of the future of warehouse and manufacturing automation. Be among the first to learn how embracing Autonomous Mobile Robotics technology can grow your profits.

    WHEN: Coming Soon
    WHERE: Online – Wherever you are!

    Perfect for: Plant Managers, Vice Presidents, and CEOs/Owners
