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.
As a result of their robot purchases Bailey Nurseries can switch to this new configuration and gain up to 15% more space for free.
Compact, high-torque motors precisely control biopsy needle to improve speed, efficiency, and radiation exposure.
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.
Traditionally, vacuum-based bag handling systems have been marred by problems to the extent that it has been almost impossible to use them.
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.
The benefits of automating a medical research lab include sifting through massive amounts of data in a short period of time.
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.
Here is a reprint of an interview with Gerd Manz of the adidas Group who will speak at AMPA14 about the applications of 3D printing in the Sporting Goods Industry.
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.
The EUROPattern Microscope is a high-performance automation solution designed for the evaluation of immunofluorescence slides in autoimmune diagnostics.
Presently, 3-D printing is having a small effect on distribution, but in the future it could put a serious dent in the supply chain.
The most unique feature is the ability to print in 5 different colors or materials in a single print, without doing any manual color swapping.
It's a drone with an intelligent system that allows anyone to program it and have it either track a subject or follow planned scenarios.
We're always looking for new companies and products to spark the imagination of our readers. Crowd funding is a great place to look. Here are a few we think you will enjoy learning about.

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.
