Fisnar Glue Application Robot.

We recently had a customer come to us with a request to program a Fisnar I&J7100 robot.  We did not have any experience with this robot, but told them that if they couldn't find someone to help then we could learn it.  Endigit's best feature is our ability to learn and solve new challenges.  Bryan had experience with programming and running CNC machines so he volunteered to take this on.
Here is the resulting robot in action.


We were able to save the customer time and money by taking this project on.  They were able to stay focused on their core competency by having us take care of this for them.  Let us know if there is anything your business needs.  We are great learners and problem solvers.

Change a Mouse Button, Change Your Life

I like being efficient. I don't like doing unnecessary things.  I figure out the fastest route to drive everywhere I go.  I even tie my shoes differently to save myself two seconds.  If you have talked to me in person then it is very likely you have heard me go on about minimizing my wallet.  I don't like wasting time or energy.  At Endigit, we are proud of our efficiency and ability to complete things quickly. One way we do this is by being effective in our key strokes and mouse clicks.

One trick that will save you a lot of time in the long run is to map the delete key to an accessory button on your mouse.  With a delete button mapped, you no longer need to move your hand from the mouse (or move your left hand over) to press the delete key on the keyboard.  You can simply select it with the mouse and hit the newly mapped delete button.  Each click saves me around 1 second.  While one second by itself is not much, imagine if you are deleting 60 things a day.  You just bought back one minute of your life that would have been sucked away!  Count Rugen would be furious!

Everyone at Endigit uses the Logitech M570 trackball mouse.  Logitech has instructions for customizing the buttons for their products.



Effective use of movement and time are part of what helps Endigit provide faster software development.  It is part of how Robert won the World's Fastest LabVIEW Programmer at NIWeek 2016!  I think mapping the delete button is the only thing Robert changed to advance from taking 2nd place for several years in a row.  Now instead of not being a winner, Robert is a champion.  Imagine what a faster delete key can do for you.



What are your favorite time saving tips and tricks?
