Robotmaster V6 Named "Game Changer of the Year" In Motion Control by Robotics Business Review

Robotmaster V6 took the award in the Motion Control category of the first annual Game Changer Awards, recognizing outstanding advancements in robotic technology in 2013.

October 23, 2013 - Robotics Business Review today announced the winners of the first annual Game Changer Awards, recognizing outstanding advancements in robotic technology in 2013. Chosen by a panel of distinguished experts from the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems and the business and investment community, along with Robotics Business Review and Robotics Trends editors, Robotmaster V6 took the award in the Motion Control category, in consideration of its outstanding product attributes, design and functionality, the benefits it brings to robotics as a whole and its impact in its specific application areas.


The award was announced in Santa Clara, California, at RoboBusiness, the leading business development event for the global robotics industry. "Every product entered displayed an imaginative concept, innovative engineering and great practicality." said Tom Green, RBR editor in chief.

Honored to be identified among the people and the technologies pushing the robotics industry forward, Chahe Bakmazjian, president of Jabez Technologies, is excited to see Robotmaster accepted as the reference for off-line programming in the industry, the fruit of Jabez' many years of combining expertise in CAD/CAM software development technologies, applied mathematics and robot kinematics to perfect and extend Robotmaster's suite of functionality.. "While robot manufacturers have been optimizing their robot capabilities for machine tooling applications, industry adoption has been slowed by the lack of adequate programming tools for complex trajectories, " he said. "We have focused on reducing programming time substantially, increasing accuracy and enabling ultimate motion control in an integrated, intuitive, interactive simulation environment - the key to breaking the programming barrier for complex trajectories in milling, trimming, welding, deburring, dispensing and other applications."

ROBOTMASTER V6, introduced in spring 2013, presents new capabilities that reinforce ROBOTMASTER's value as a powerful, easy to use and integrated software solution for CAD model import/creation, path generation, advanced robot kinematic resolution (singularities, joint limits, over travel, reach, etc.), simulation and code generation. It provides the tools that easily solve complex robot programming issues to enable robot integrators to provide solutions in new robotic application areas and manufacturing engineers to leverage the benefits of robotics even if they have little or no robot programming experience.

ROBOTMASTER® is a product of Jabez Technologies, specialists in dedicated software solutions for robotic, industrial automation and manufacturing since 1997. For more information visit their website www.robotmaster.com.

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.
