At this AUTOMATICA the hype theme was definitely collaborative robotics -- our robots can work alongside your human workers safely.
Multi-axis, three-dimensional cable carriers for palletizing.
Air-driven ejectors are gaining pace as the vacuum source for suction cup handling equipment on robots and special purpose machines (ex: case/carton erectors, de-stackers, unloading equipment, etc.)
Today's applications require their sensor's feedback in much quicker intervals. The faster the response, the faster the production or through put of work, which results in a low cost per unit or operation.
Touchless rotary sensors are position sensors that use a position marker attached to an application's rotating part plus a sensor to measure the marker's angle.
Like any small company introducing change into their operations, some employees feared that automation may take their jobs. But at EMP, the opposite was true. "We've seen jobs grow, and that's very important; not only for this community, but for the State of Michigan,"
The FAST™ Program is a group of close to 2,000 products that can be utilized in many automation applications that we guarantee to ship within 1, 3, or 5 days, depending on the configuration.
Here are three different types of rotary applications and the cable carrier system used for each.
New smaller and more portable electronics in aerospace, defense, and other stressful environments, like those encountered in robotics and oil exploration, are resulting in changing demands and designs of electronic connector systems.
Downtime near zero vs. extended downtime of former gantry system.
In order for a cable to withstand repeated torsional movement, it's necessary for the cable to have a special design. It's important that the conductors, shield construction and jacket materials of the cable compensate for major changes in bending load and diameter.
This is the final installment of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.
In the near future the more advanced the equipment becomes we must produce more skilled labor. This is great benefit to the US in that companies themselves will be helping educate their employees and improving the workforce.
This is the third of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.
Quick, accurate determination of cable length and line continuity testing using hand-held cable length instruments brings value to the cable installer, the contractor, and the customer during installation, trouble-shooting and routine maintenance cabling jobs.

The Omron Adept Lynx Cart Transporter is an Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle (AIV) designed to attach to movable carts and transport them from a pickup location to a drop off location. Applications include line-side inventory replenishment, moving flow racks, transporting Work in Progress (WIP) between process steps, and moving finished goods to the warehouse. The Lynx Cart transporter leverages Natural Feature Navigation to autonomously find a path through the facility without the need for any facility modifications necessary.
