Users will learn how to custom-configure the D-Tools software package to the needs of their specific company; how to build and manage their product database; manage revisions and change orders; better understand how to exploit the D-Tools reporting engine; be introduced to tips and best practices; and gain hands-on experience creating winning proposals.

* Day two (May 13th) is a deep dive into product documentation. Trainees will get valuable hands-on experience creating comprehensive D-Tools documentation, including Microsoft Visio Line Diagrams, Floor Plans, Elevations, Schematics, and Installation Reports.

* Day three (May 14th) will take users through management processes and advanced skills, such as customizing reports and an introduction to the new Mobile Install feature, which gives users the power to publish Install Tasks and Service Orders to a portal powered by the D-Tools Cloud that can be accessed by those in the field as well as to send and receive device-level notifications. The training will wrap with a walk-thorough of D-Tools native iOS application—Mobile Quote—that enables integrators and sales people to specify products and generate documents and quotes from any jobsite in the world. Attendees will also leave knowing how to integrate D-Tools with QuickBooks to streamline accounting processes for attached D-Tools projects.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
