AUVSI 2013 Special News Report

This is our special news page where you can read about and post news and announcements about products and services exhibited at AUVSI 2013 Unmanned Systems.

All Things Plastics Injection Molding

Many injection molders have begun their Continuous Improvement Journey and as these small teams study reduction in waste, redundancy, and efficiencies, they bring forward ideas to make more use of production robots.

The Cyton Robotic Solution

We like to use the term train rather than program. The simplest way to train the Cyton is by using what we call assistive mode. In this mode the operator grabs onto the gripper and manually moves it where it needs to go. This information is used by the software to create a path which can be repeated or modified through an intuitive graphical interface.

Case Study: Harvest Automation HV-100 Robots Are The Key That Unlock Production Efficiencies

The robots require minimal training to operate, while reducing production costs and improving productivity. They are flexible to deploy on open beds, hoop houses and greenhouses with any type of plant on all common ground surfaces including ground cloth, poly, and gravel.

Next Great Thing: Chasing Innovative Products is a Long, Hard Trek

The boss' challenge is to figure out which are the good ideas and which are great ideas. But the real innovator? It's the customer … he/she/they determine what idea is insanely great and which is…

Robots In Architecture

The emergence of robotic technologies for architectural design raises questions about how methods of construction might change in the future. Effective architectural robots have a great future in structured environments.

Portable Danish Robot Expands Production With California Manufacturer

Total setup time including all programming and tooling took eight hours. Moving the robot from one application to the next now takes about 30 minutes.

After 5,000 Years, Automation Finds Its Way Into The "Lost Wax Process"

With home-grown innovation and ABB robots, MPI, Inc. has discovered the secret to incredible increases in productivity and quality for today's most competitive foundries.

Six Axis Robots Benefit Plastic Molders

Six axis robots provide all the advantages of the simple Cartesian systems (high speed, slim forearm and simple programming) but have none of the limiting features that restrict the incorporation of additional tasks. The 6 degrees of freedom in movement provides an extremely large work envelope within a small footprint.

Flexible Seals for Robotics Systems

The Roxtec system is based on a rubber-sealing module that consists of two halves, a center core, and removable black and blue layers. This construction ensures adaptability to different sizes of cables and pipes.

Global Future 2045 Takes A Hard Look At Today

Bottom line of all of the interfaith / spiritual speakers was to emphasize that we are preoccupied with the "how" of change and not the "why."

Top 10 Questions to Consider Before Buying an Industrial Robot

The following document poses some of the questions that a robotic user should consider prior to selecting a robot and a robot programmer/installer.

Case Study: Machine Vision System Detects Defective Parts for Precision Stampings Supplier

Dimensional measurement is an essential step in the manufacture of Hexin's stamped parts in order to ensure that each workpiece meets required tolerances.

Where Has All the Training Gone?

While the CSS program is clearly a success, the company still would prefer to focus solely on manufacturing. They created the program to fill a void, and it means they will be able to promote from within their own ranks, but CSS would prefer not to take the place of educational institutions.

Online Robotics Certificate Program

The program is offered in an asynchronous format, which means you can study any time, any place. We also offer a "pay as you go" tuition option where students pay for each course as they complete it.
