Robotiq Insights Software

FPE Automation's Automation Controls Division has been so impressed by Robotiq's Insights software that they have taken it upon themselves to spread the word!

If your environment is making use of cobots, or you're thinking about adding them in the near-term, Insights software is something you may want to consider.

Monitor your robot in real time.


Robotiq's Insights software sends you a text message when your robot is down and provides real-time data about cycles completed, efficiency, wait-time, and overall utilization for each of your robots.


Easy to integrate, easy to use.


Insights brings real-time monitoring, analysis, and diagnostics to collaborative robots. It will keep you posted on your robot’s performance anywhere, anytime, thanks to the Insights web app.

FPE Automation welcomes Anthony Bonadio from MAC Valves to TS17!

We're excited to announce that Anthony Bonadio will be joining us at TS17 to host a special breakout session addressing pulse valve technology and understanding dust collection.  

The area of dust collection has been undergoing a shift in recent years. Groundbreaking innovations have produced new technology that has companies re-thinking the way they process their airborne contaminants. We'll explain all of that in the special session hosted by Anthony Bonadio on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 3:00 pm at FPE Automation's TS17 Technology Showcase.
