The company pays the robot monthly, plus payroll taxes. The robot pays income tax and a percentage of the robot's wages go to the RMWP. The RMWP (Robot Minimum Wage Plan) collects the money and distributes it to the displaced workers.
Companies are reinventing themselves, looking at their business in a new way with regards to how can they be a disrupter, and how they can prevent being disrupted - and this opens up deal flow.
ATX West will be held from February 7th - 9th in Anaheim, California. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
128 companies got funded, some multiple times. $1.95 billion, 50% more than 2015 which was also a phenomenal year with over $1.32 billion funded.
While "future-proof" technology is realistically too much to hope for, savvy companies will choose manufacturers with a proven track record for long term thinking, look for inherent flexibility in their purchases and plan for the inevitable changes that are sure to come as technology advances.
IDC predicts a compound annual growth rate of 17% to reach a global total market for robotics around $135 billion by 2019.
The team wanted to use the robot to transform complex 3D designs from concept to physical reality in machine foam and other soft materials.
Because of their enclosed structure with all the cables routed internally, the robots are ideally equipped to handle even the most extreme conditions.
The 4 in the 4D represents the additional level of visual process information available, "Making the invisible - visible." This means that on the screen the user receives 3D visualization of the robot's movement.
The process of having employees work alongside robots is constantly improving. While this change may seem to be a small change, it does give more space for actual collaboration.
RR Floody's Powerful New Flexible Feeder System Pairs Mitsubishi Electric Robot and Cognex Vision System
With manufacturers more and more concerned about being able to change product and component mix on the fly, they are demanding a more flexible feeder bowl solution that allows for changing component recognition without expensive and time-consuming retooling of the system every time.
This machine was assembled from various parts from other machines, so "Frankenstein" was really the only logical name for it.
IPR's Robot Transport Units (RTU) Increase Both the Action Radius of Robots and the Productivity of Loading Stations
The electronic switching of currents to the coils of the BLDC motor is more efficient than the mechanical switching of the DC motor.
I think it is realistic for a robot of some sort to be in every classroom. But, the education system will need to lead the way towards that future.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
