ATI INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION'S SEVENTH ANNUAL TECHNOLOGY TRAINING FAIR SCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 22ND, 2013

. ATI will provide cost-effective solutions to the most challenging applications

Apex, North Carolina: ATI Industrial Automation will host their 7th Annual Technology Training Fair at the Michigan Sales Office located at 4577 South Lapeer Road, Suite I, Orion Township, MI 48359. On Thursday, August 22nd, discussions will detail the many new end-effector products developed by ATI over the past year along with their existing state-of-the-art products. ATI will provide cost-effective solutions to the most challenging applications; which will increase robot productivity and surpass your automation needs. ATI Account Managers and Engineers will be available throughout the event to discuss existing and potential applications, end-effector requirements, and answer questions about the complete product line.


The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) Director of Standards Development will discuss the release of the 2012 version of the R15.06 robotics safety standard, examining new features compared to the 1999 standard. Several live demonstrations of ATI's Robotic Tool Changers, Multi-Axis Force/Torque Sensors, Utility Couplers, Robotic Collision Sensors, and Robotic Deburring Tools will run throughout the day. A schedule will be announced and posted on ATI's web site soon, you can also register for the event at www.ati-ia.com. Contact ATI if you would like a specific topic covered or if you would like an informal one-on-one meeting with one of their Engineering team members. Food and refreshments will be available all day and lunch will be provided.

Please visit their website to register for the Technology Training Fair, or contact ATI at events@ati-ia.com or 919-772-0115.
AMT/Adaptive Systems Tour

Only a few blocks away at 219 Kay Industrial Drive, live robotic demonstrations featuring ATI products can be viewed at AMT and Adaptive Systems. AMT is North America's largest automation engineering company for supporting robot companies, systems integrators, line builders, and users of robotic automation worldwide. Located in the same building as AMT, Adaptive Systems is a Turnkey Systems Integrator specializing in the design and build of custom automation that commonly involves 2D and/or 3D vision. Transportation will be provided between locations during the Open House or attendees are welcome to visit AMT and Adaptive Systems on their own.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

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.
