Startup shows technology for efficient development and production of robots
The new ArcWorld® 200 and ArcWorld® 500 welding solutions are designed to be versatile workhorses for small- to AW200medium-sized parts or medium-volume production runs. These customizable models feature a dual-station design allowing for high robot utilization; the operator can load one workstation while the robot is servicing the other. Floorspace requirements are minimal, as they can occupy a typical single-station space.
The MGR5 Series Micro Gripper was developed to handle small very fragile parts - in SMAC's case - the assembly of small and precise rotary encoders. It includes the company's patented Soft-Land feature, programmable force down to 5 grams, and two independently controlled gripper fingers to pick up asymmetric parts.

Mechatronic Motion Solutions from Festo is a unique system of components, modules, and software. It integrates all types of pneumatic, servopneumatic and (electro)mechanical automation motion and combines them according to your task. Irrespective of the control system environment you use, Mechatronic Motion Solutions always provides the appropriate interfaces. The fingers can be actively moved and their strength amplified; the operator's hand movements are registered and transmitted to the robotic hand in real time. The objectives are to enhance the strength and endurance of the human hand, to extend humans' scope of action and to secure them an independent lifestyle even at an advanced age.
