Industry-Leading HDL-32E Sensor Also Deployed on Boston Dynamics' SPOT; Helps Robots 'See' Danger Lurking in the Aftermath of a Disaster
Robots have been doing tough jobs for over half a century, mostly in the automotive sector, but they’ve probably had a bigger impact in Hollywood movies than on factory floors. That’s about to change. Today’s robots can see better, think faster, adapt to changing situations, and work with a gentler touch. Some of them are no longer bolted to the factory floor, and they’re moving beyond automotive manufacturing. They’re also getting cheaper. These improvements are helping to drive demand. In fact, we expect the global industrial robot population to double to about four million by 2020, changing the competitive landscape in dozens of fields — from underground mining to consumer goods and aerospace manufacturing. Robots will allow more manufacturers to produce locally and raise productivity with a knowledge-based workforce. Cont'd...

Brings Over 30 Years of Military Intelligence and Drone Technology Development Expertise to the Company
The Port of Hueneme was buzzing with unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles at the second annual Maritime Advanced Systems & Technology Laboratory (MAST) and Expo held on June 10, 2015 and attended by 150+ exhibitors and guests.
Festo is actively advancing the implementation of Industry 4.0: besides carrying out intensive research into intelligent components and decentralised automation, the automation producer is setting out to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0 with specific solutions in process automation as well.
The harsher the environmental conditions, the more robust process automation actuators must be. The new linear actuator DFPI-NB3 from Festo is exceptionally tough thanks to its integrated displacement encoder.
MICROMO Announces the New DMC-30019 Controller for the Piezo LEGS® Motor Series
After the success of the first SkyTech event in April of this year, the organisers are delighted to announce the launch of SkyTech 2016, organised in collaboration with SUAS Global, RUSTA and Flightpath Consulting, which will take place on the 27th & 28th January 2016 at the Business Design Centre, London.
By Sainul Abudheen K for e27: Be it manufacturing, design or construction — robotics is widely being used by enterprises globally to bring in efficiency, reduce cost and save time. Smart entrepreneurs are further exploring the scope and possibilities of robotics so that human beings can ultimately use robots for almost everything. As a result of these experiments, a robot has now come into our living room, where we use it as a personal assistant. As robotics is heating up, more entrepreneurs are coming up with cutting-edge solutions that can be used in healthcare space, defense and education. Here, we bring you a list of half-a-dozen robotics startups in India. Grey Orange Robotics : Based in Gurgaon and Singapore, Grey Orange creates robots catering to the warehousing and automation space. The firm aims to provide disruptive technology to make innovative products for efficient logistics and distribution. Systemantics : This Bangalore-based startup aims to enable widespread adoption of flexible automation in industry, for tedious and mentally-fatiguing or hazardous tasks that human labour is ill-suited to perform. Gade Autonomous Systems : Mumbai-based Gade aims to introduce state-of-the-art social and service robots that could communicate with human beings and their surroundings. Full Article:

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
