In a human-machine study conducted by an MIT professor, it was shown that teams made of humans and robots collaborating efficiently can be more productive than teams made of either humans or robots alone.
Although I mention "robot integrator" in the title specifically, these principles can be applied to any business within the industry, including: Custom Machine Builders, Controls Integrators, Engineering Companies and more.
Safety is a complex topic, but these six factors are helping to not only increase workplace safety this year but also efficiency, quality and employee well-being.
Industry 4.0 Smart Factories and Smart Machines continue to drive dramatic efficiency improvements across the supply chain, within the factory and inside machines.
Manufacturing partners need you just as much as you need them. Stay loyal because they can really help you in the early days.
Borrowed from the military, Communications, Command and Control (sometimes called 3C), are the three key organizing principles for acquiring, processing and disseminating information
As they watch fellow companies successfully use robotics, see what it takes to switch to a fully or semi-automated system and be reassured by a human back-up system, it seems inevitable that more folding carton manufacturers will soon be adopting robotics.
The services that fabb.one will provide through their fabbs range from printing, injection molding, CNC milling to scanning, conceptual and CAD design.
Smart Homes, Robotics, Automation, Unmanned Vehicles, Solar and Wind Energy. Regardless of where you work or what you do, these topics are affecting your life and will continue to do so in the future.
Advanced Manufacturing Conference & Expo 2016 will be held from February 9th - 11th in Anaheim, California. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Two existing bakery facilities were successfully integrated into one and finished goods capacity nearly doubled from 6,500 lbs. /hour to 12,000 lbs. /hour.
In this paper, we introduce the TOF technology and the theory of operation. We also compare TOF sensors with 2D machine vision and other 3D vision technologies and highlight TOF sensors' differentiating advantages.
This is the first in a series of articles about Collaborative Robots
The first-of-its-kind solution consists of a standard commercially available robot, composite deposition end-effector hardware and a comprehensive software suite.
Here are some of the best applications that can be done by a collaborative robot (in my own opinion).

Stäubli offers a complete range of robotic tool changing systems for payloads of 20 kg to 1,530 kg and torsion moments from 30 to 12,500 Nm, designed for use in virtually every industry. The tool changers adapt to customer-specific applications with different modules for media, data, power, etc. The new MPS 130 robotic tool changer is powerful, very robust, and designed for a huge range of applications. It features multiple couplings for air/vacuum connections, and can be equipped with connectors for data and electrical transmission. Very compact dimensions, with a coupled height of only 67 mm, make the MPS 130 the first choice for applications requiring a high number of mating cycles.
