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.
When installing a drive, available power and various other factors play an important role. The cable outlet of the motor may be a decisive criterion, particularly when space is limited. For this reason the smallest ironless linear motor from Tecnotion -the UC3- is also available with a cable output in the travel direction.

Factory Automation - Featured Product
Zaber's new and improved stage (X-BLQ-E) is a closed-loop, belt-driven motorized linear stage with built-in motor encoder and controller. With travel lengths up to 3 m, 10 µm repeatability, and a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s, X-BLQ-E stages are perfect for rapid positioning over large distances. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery, and an optional indexed knob provides manual control for operation without a computer. Like all Zaber products, the X-BLQ-E Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
