Vention Updates MachineLogic Software for Code-Free Robotic Programming


 June 21, 2022

Vention, which develops a cloud-based manufacturing automation platform, has announced the launch of MachineLogic V4.0, one of the company’s biggest releases since it initially launched in 2018. Offered either as a freemium or subscription basis, the software lets users leverage the full feature set of MachineLogic in its cloud version, with subscriptions required for those looking to then deploy equipment on the factory floor.

MachineLogic is one of the company’s core products of Vention’s manufacturing automation platform. Focusing on code-free programming, the cloud and edge software includes a unified programming interface across robot brands (including Universal Robots, Fanuc, and Doosan), actuators (such as linear axis, conveyors and pneumatics), and both digital and analog I/Os. Vention said users can easily 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 company said MachineLogic saves practitioners from having to learn several proprietary languages specific to each robot, PLC and motor-drive manufacturer.

The system works in unison with Vention’s motion controller, MachineMotion, and includes a full library of modular components. New features include multi-MachineMotion compatibility, simultaneous robot and actuator programming, and JavaScript lambda functions. The subscription option also includes team onboarding training and access to Vention’s customer success team for ongoing support.

“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.”

The company said V4.0 of MachineLogic will be available on July 25, with online training and education webinars starting the same week. For more details on the offering, visit the Vention website here.
