At its "Discover Mitsubishi Robotics: Simple, Proven, Complete" exhibit at Automate 2013, Mitsubishi Electric Automation will showcase its latest cutting-edge robotics and control technologies. The exhibit is located at booth #854 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Automate is the largest solutions-based showcase of automation technologies in North America and runs January 21-24, 2013.

"Visitors will see a range of high-performance low-to-medium payload robots integrated with vision, such as the Robo-Pick demo which shows how Mitsubishi Robots can easily be integrated into flexible manufacturing systems" said Aravind Durai, Product Manager of Mitsubishi Robotics. Durai also added that there will be a daily drawing for an iPad® the first three days of the show.

Additional product and solution demonstrations such as Mitsubishi's iQ platform demo robot and the new MELSEC-F Series demo cell will be exhibited. The iQ Platform is unique in the automation industry, as it delivers Robot, PLC, Motion, and CNC control all on a single back plane, allowing users to have high-capacity communication between multiple machines and less wiring.

Mitsubishi's robots, PLCs, HMIs, and servos can be integrated into flexible manufacturing systems for many applications including packaging, machine tending, material handling, material removal, dispensing, inspection, kitting. "At Automate 2013, we'll show how easy it is to interface Mitsubishi equipment into an automation work cell," added Ben Sagan, Sr. Business Development Specialist, Mitsubishi Electric Automation.

In addition, an iPad will be given away daily the first three days of the show. All you have to do to enter the raffle is tour the Mitsubishi Electric booth, complete an entry form and deposit it in the drawing container.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
