Robotics Alley, PaR Systems Partner on Manufacturing & Assembly Track

The producers of the 2014 Robotics Alley Conference & Expo turned to automation provider PaR Systems to help develop content for a Manufacturing & Assembly Track.

This year, to highlight innovative uses of automation in today's manufacturing and assembly industries, the producers the Robotics Alley Conference & Expo turned to automation provider PaR Systems to help develop a track specifically on that topic.


The Manufacturing & Assembly Track will include five presentations that highlight ways industrial robotics have evolved in recent years.

Presentations include:

*Advanced Applications of Industrial Robotics, Including Human Collaboration
*Stuart C. Shepherd, CEO Americas - KUKA Robot Group, KUKA Robotics Corporation
*Expanded Use of Robotics in the Production of Critical Components
*Scott Voldness, Director, Engineer - Facilities & Equipment, ATK Aerospace Systems
*Lowering the Cost of Robotics Through Advanced Technology and Software
*Dr. Khalid Sorensen, Control Systems Engineer, CAMotions

These sessions represent a sampling of the more than 30 breakouts attendees will have access to at this year's two-day event. Other tracks cover topics including health care, transportation, agriculture, security and defense, and more.

The 2014 Robotics Alley Conference & Expo takes place Sept. 16-17, 2014, at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest. Visit http://www.roboticsalley.org/ for more information about the event and to register.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
