Ancor knew there had to be a better and more efficient way to manage the label packaging process - which had a 10-hour or less nightly production timeframe and a client-mandated 100% verification process.
Nanorobotics is about creating robots which are so small they are nearly invisible to the naked eye. Operating as a swarm, these tiny robots have the promise to do some really incredible things.
This is the second of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.
The two day DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials 2013 officially ended Saturday, December 21 and here are the results.
A forceÔÇÉcontrolled robot can be programmed to mimic the movements of a human arm, applying search patterns to find the correct position to assemble a given part.
"I've worked a long time to make this happen and am very pleased with the results. It enables investors everywhere to capitalize on the accelerating growth and promising future of robotics." Frank Tobe, Co-founder, Robo-stox LLC and Editor/Publisher, The Robot Report.
These drones are solely surveyors. They must be well equipped to notice when something is out of place or detect potential threats and weapons and alert park rangers immediately.
A robot system, fully deployed is going to give two to three-hundred percent return on investment per year.
As this technology is still in its infant stages, we do not truly know how efficient the process will be. We can only hope that the technology will be there when the next spill happens.
ABB Robotics has introduced the IRB 6700 robot family, its seventh generation of industry-leading, large industrial robots.
There has to be some way to separate the wheat from the chaff, the frivilous/worthless lawsuits from the honest patents based on hard, sweaty creative efforts that deserve protection.
Harvest Automation robots are designed to work around the clock, they never need a break, and can handle the most tedious and repetitive work on a Nursery or Greenhouse operation with consistent accuracy and on-time performance.
TORC's unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) conversion kits, which maintain the ability for optionally manned operation, offer the proven capabilities and modularity necessary for AFRL to scale from one prototype to production quantity.
CoaXpress and MatLab integration offer options where previously none existed. The ability to have a controllable high speed camera at distances greater than 7m wasn't a possibility before, without the use of extenders and other potential hardware failures.
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International projects that the integration of UAVs would have an $82 billion economic impact on the economy by adding 100,000 jobs from 2015 to 2025.

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
