IMTS 2014 - Midwest Engineering Systems Exhibiting at IMTS with ABB Robotics

Midwest Engineering Systems, an ABB Robotics Value Provider, will be featured in the ABB Robotics booth during IMTS, displaying random robotic bin picking technology.

Midwest Engineering Systems Inc., an innovative provider of premier custom machines and integrated systems will be featured in the ABB Robotics exhibit at IMTS 2014 (International Manufacturing Technology Show).

IMTS 2014 is a premier manufacturing technology show in North America, taking place at McCormick Place complex in Chicago, IL on September 8-13, 2014. 1,900 exhibiting companies with occupy 1.2 Million square feet of exhibit space. Exhibiting companies are in industries such as: metal cutting, tooling & work holding systems, metal forming, & industrial automation. Manufacturing industry professionals from all over the world attend IMTS to see more than 15,000 new machine tools, controls, computers, software, components, robotic systems and processes that can improve their efficiency.

Midwest Engineering Systems, an ABB Robotics Value Provider, will be featured in the ABB Robotics booth and display new industrial robot technology. Midwest Engineering Systems has integrated a random robotic bin-picking cell to be on display during the expo. This demonstration will highlight robotic picking using a SICK 3D vision system that tracks, replicates, and maps the surrounding bin-picking environment.

Midwest Engineering System's integrated bin picking systems are capable of:
• Distinguishing the desired part from ‘rejected' parts with incorrect features
• Deep bin picking up to 4'
• Identifying parts and their orientation regardless of surface finish, shine, rust, or color
• Robotic mechanical gripper and magnetic end effector configurations
• 3D vision camera integration

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.
