FANUC America continues to encourage companies to equip their factories with robotics and automated solutions for manufacturing to stay competitive.
Strong first-day test results and enthusiastic crowds offer encouraging look ahead for disaster-response robotics
Robots don't always have it easy. They have to do their jobs in the dust and dirt - not to mention reliably and with utmost precision. All this in tough environments such as machine tools as well, where they are challenged by major stresses like swarf, cooling lubricants, oil or water spray.
The Institute for Robotic Process Automation (IRPA), an independent professional association for buyers, providers, analysts and influencers of robotic process automation, today announced the launch its new venture and website, www.irpanetwork.com. The network will serve as the first association of its kind, a knowledge forum and solutions center dedicated to robotic process automation.
With better process control, the mill can improve its overall performance and decrease its environmental footprint
The configurators are quick and easy to use, producing the exact robotic gun needed for the application in a few simple steps.
The DARPA ROBOTICS CHALLENGE is an initiative of the US Department of Defense to develop new technologies and make new robotic breakthroughs.
Team designs vary but incorporate similar technologies that could make robots practical and robust aides in future emergencies
Standalone Layer 2+ Ethernet switch targets harsh environment applications

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.
