DUNCAN, SC - Stäubli Robotics, manufacturers of high speed and precision robots for industrial applications, was a major attraction at this year's AUTOMATE show in Chicago. Among the highlights at the Stäubli booth was a raffle for a complete RS40B CS8C 4-axis SCARA robot system, which went to lucky winner Dorothy Williams from Kellogg Company.


The prize package included a wall-mount RS40B robot arm, 20-mm diameter and 200 stroke, a CS8C controller, working mode box with a 5-meter cable, a 5-meter interconnect cable, SP1 pendant with a 7-meter cable and a week of training. Ms. Williams commented, "This is an awesome opportunity to get acquainted with Staubli robotics!"

The Robotics Division also showcased its TS60, TS80 and TX200 robot systems at the event, and introduced VALproduct solutions, the newest line of Stäubli Robotics Control software.

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.
