Top Six Trends in Industrial Robotics

Here are six emerging trends in the world of industrial robots that will likely have a big impact on a wide variety of industrial sectors, and provide benefits well beyond what was once imaginable.

Sensing, Measurement and Process Control Robots

One of the major problems with a robot is sensor irregularity, where the sensors provide data that at times is accurate and at other times inaccurate.

Quickstick® Linear Synchronous Motors Increase Productivity in Pharmaceutical Application

A major mail order pharmacy was planning a new facility so they approached their long time supplier of automated solutions, Tension Packaging, to design a system that would reduce their cost per prescription and produce 1,000 validated and labeled pieces per hour.

Motors Level Ocean Bottom Seismometers Reliably and Efficiently

With a combination of high torque density and precision motion, compact stepper motors provide full 360° of correction for instrument tilt.

Robotics Provides 114-year-old Manufacturer 55 Percent Productivity Gain

Robotic palletizing solution from Intelligrated adds staffing and production flexibility, avoids worker injuries, and yields floor-space savings.

Upcoming Tradeshow, Conference & Exhibition Summary
October, November, December

This year RoboticsTomorrow has setup a special newspage devoted to news and announcements from International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2014). Make sure to check it out.

Education with a Sand Pile, Robots and a Computer Game

Allowing our young to experiment with hands on is the best path to understanding. Theories and facts can be memorized and regurgitated but that does not mean they are understood.

Harvest Automation Robots Reduce Production Costs and Increase Capacity

As a result of their robot purchases Bailey Nurseries can switch to this new configuration and gain up to 15% more space for free.

Robotic Biopsy System Drives the Point Home

Compact, high-torque motors precisely control biopsy needle to improve speed, efficiency, and radiation exposure.

Upcoming Tradeshow, Conference & Exhibition Summary - September, October, November

Back to school and back to work with the tradeshow schedule for the Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing industry heating up. This year RoboticsTomorrow has setup a special newspage devoted to news and announcements from International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2014) taking place beginning of September.

Vacuum-based Bag Handling

Traditionally, vacuum-based bag handling systems have been marred by problems to the extent that it has been almost impossible to use them.

Digital Design using CAD/CAM for Innovative Robotic Design

With 3D CAD software, designers can actually simulate a robot's capabilities by reviewing how the robot's construction will be effected by the selected materials.

Why I Automate - This Robot is Changing How We Cure Diseases

The benefits of automating a medical research lab include sifting through massive amounts of data in a short period of time.

Coding & Marking Challenges: Common Industrial Print Techniques and Their Challenges

If a barcode or marking is unreadable, it can result in recalls, unhappy customers, and even fines. It is important to identify these issues early by implementing regular checks and verification to ensure quality.

Automated Vision Inspection and Parts Traceability in Automotive Assembly Process

Compared to manual inspection, a machine vision and barcode reading system offers improved accuracy, higher consistency, and it works non-stop, day in and day out.

New KUKA Robot:  KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

New KUKA Robot: KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

Great advances often start with small steps - in manufacturing cells measuring only 600 × 600 mm. Here, the KR 3 AGILUS is in its element. Particularly in the case of small parts and products which must be produced in a minimum of space. KUKA expertise, concentrated into the smallest of spaces, is setting new standards for the 3-kg class. The lightweight robot masters various tasks with agility, dynamism and maximum precision, leading to high flexibility in production - even when it comes to extremely narrow spaces.
