Kissing It Better: Lifting Ergonomically with Vacuum

By using the right suction and the right lips for the job, you really can "kiss it better" before lifting, rather than after.


Robotiq releases a new version of its 2-Finger 85 Adaptive Gripper. Nearly two times stronger and 50% faster this new Gripper has been perfectly designed to match Universal Robots in terms of payload, flexibility and user-friendliness.

OpenCV Vision Challenge

From the OpenCV Foundation:

OpenCV Foundation with support from DARPA and Intel Corporation are launching a community-wide challenge to update and extend the OpenCV library with state-of-art algorithms. An award pool of $50,000 is provided to reward submitters of the best performing algorithms in the following 11 CV application areas: (1) image segmentation, (2) image registration, (3) human pose estimation, (4) SLAM, (5) multi-view stereo matching, (6) object recognition, (7) face recognition, (8) gesture recognition, (9) action recognition, (10) text recognition, (11) tracking.


The OpenCV Vision Challenge Committee will judge up to five best entries.

You may submit a new algorithm developed by yourself or your implementation of an existing algorithm even if you are not the author of the algorithm. 
You may enter any number of categories. 
If your entry wins the contest you will be awarded $1K.
To win an additional $7.5 to $9K, you must contribute the source code as an OpenCV pull request under a BSD license. 
You acknowledge that your contributed code may be included, with your copyright, in OpenCV.

You may explicitly enter code for any work you have submitted to CVPR 2015 or its workshops. We will not unveil it until after CVPR.


Submission Period: Now – May 8th 2015 
Winners Announcement: June 8th 2015 at CVPR 2015

The POSITAL Advantage - Over 130,000 Varieties of Sensors!

Until now, users of position and motion sensors have had to choose between low-cost standardized products and more expensive custom-built items. For cost-sensitive applications, sensor builders have adopted mass production techniques, building large runs of identical products. The rotation sensors used in automotive ABS and stability control systems are good examples of high-volume, mass produced items. For more demanding customers - such as machine builders creating complex industrial automation and motion control systems - sensor manufacturers have often relied on a more craft-based approach, with expert machinists building custom-designed products in in small batch quantities. These specialized items are more expensive than their mass-produced counterparts and usually take far longer to be delivered. However, for the specialist machine builder, getting instruments that meet their exact requirements can often be more cost-effective than adapting a not-quite-right unit. POSITAL has broken down the "inexpensive but inflexible" vs. "customized but costly" divide by developing a new mass-customized approach to sensor design and fabrication.

More versions, more power - New DCX motors and GPX gearboxes from maxon

Now even stronger, more efficient and with yet more combination options: There are new additions to the maxon family of X drive products. Several long versions of brushed DC motors, with higher torques and more power, are being added to the product range, together with matching planetary gearheads. Each of the 3-stage versions can now be combined with the next smaller motor. This saves space, weight and costs.

Trending Shelf-Ready Packaging Relies on Mosca S-ATRS to Get to Market

Shelf-Ready Packaging, (synonymous with Retail-Ready) is trending for many retailers, including discount clubs. Merchandise in Shelf-Ready Packaging (SRP) is easier to ship, display and sell. But, the small production runs of wildly diversified products have to get to manufacturers first. Mosca's Model S-ATRS for bundling cartons has proved to be a reliable and cost effective design with surprising throughput potential.
