What to Look for When Specifying a Robot Cable

In order for a cable to withstand repeated torsional movement, it's necessary for the cable to have a special design. It's important that the conductors, shield construction and jacket materials of the cable compensate for major changes in bending load and diameter.

Robotic Welding Series: Robotic Flexibility Can Open Up Opportunities For Job Shops

This is the final installment of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.

Why I Automate: Vickers Engineering

Robotics allows us to draw a different level of employee. Employees that aren't just looking for a paycheck, but looking for a career.

Interview with Jim Gruszczynski of Nabtesco Motion Control

In the near future the more advanced the equipment becomes we must produce more skilled labor. This is great benefit to the US in that companies themselves will be helping educate their employees and improving the workforce.

2013 Nanotechnology Patent Literature Review

Similar to computers, nanotechnology is both an enabling technology and a technology sector in its own right. Nanotechnology is prolific in the research and development of almost every economic sector, from aerospace to medicine to energy.

The Unmanned Platform Common Control System (CCS)

The CCS prototype was developed for the U.S. government and its goal is to simultaneously control multiple unmanned assets in various environments (water, air and ground).

The Less is More Approach to Robotic Cable Management

There are different options available for guiding and protecting cables on six-axis robots. Three well- known solutions include flexible tubing, enclosed dress packs and robotic cable carrier systems.

3D Printing in the Dental Industry

3Shape implants planning and guided surgery software brings together implant planning, prosthetics, and drill guide design to provide a cost-efficient solution that saves chair-time and improves patient experience.

Brain Control Becomes A Reality

The fore-runner of brain communication to a robot is Neuroprosthetics, which is an area of neuroscience concerned with neural prostheses. That is, using artificial devices to replace the function of impaired nervous systems and brain related problems.

Trimble Adds Unmanned Aircraft System to its Agriculture Portfolio

The system can locate cattle and their available forage over large areas, measure crop height, and generate topographic maps and models for land leveling and drainage applications.

An Uncertain Future for Quantum Computing?

Quantum computing is here to shake the existing mechanical, electrical and electronic systems. Modern electronics in particular will not be the same if quantum computing gains acceptance. There're voices of support as well as dissent. In this post, we'll analyze future trends in quantum computing. Keep reading!

Robotic Welding Series: Pre-engineered Cells Cut Through Economics of Automation

This is the third of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.

Why I Automate

Our goal is to share stories about companies that are using automation to succeed and compete effectively in their marketplace.

A BeagleBone Black Resource

The BeagleBone Black is the latest low cost single-board computer in the BeagleBoard family.

Electrospinning NanoFibers

Electrospinning can be used to produce advanced materials that otherwise would not be possible to make.

Discover the power of Omron mobile robotics.

Our fully autonomous intelligent vehicles will help you to transform the way you move materials and route your workflows. Increase throughput, eliminate material flow errors, improve traceability, maximize flexibility and allow your employees to focus on higher level tasks. Unlike traditional AGV's, our mobile robotics navigate using the natural features of your facility and do not require expensive facility modifications or guidance. Our AIV's can adapt to changes in their environment and work freely and safely with your staff. Our mobile robots are intelligent enough to quickly learn their environment and then automatically find the optimal path to where they need to go. They also automatically make adjust for dynamic environments and can work together in fleets of up to 100 robots.
