Quantum is pursuing promising new robotics targets around the globe
Will focus on practical solutions for companies seeking to automate
GstarCAD together with its local distributors successfully attended INDOBUILDTECH (Indonesia Building Material Technology Expo & Conference) from June 27-July 1, 2012.
Honeywell's NBP Series is ideal for customers who want to do their own compensation, calibration, and amplification to make use of the maximum resolution of the bare sensor output, leveraging a custom algorithm required for their application.
More than 40 vendors and five universities showcased nearly 75 different technologies during the 10-day event at Fort Benning's McKenna Urban Operations Complex.
Today announced the appointment of Nancy Nunziati as vice president of marketing and Allen Hollingshead as vice president of sales, Americas.
To potentially help commercialize cutting-edge robotics technologies.
The International Association for Robots in Architecture has released an update to it's Grasshopper plugin: KUKA:prc. Grasshopper is visual programming language built on top of the Rhino3D modeler. Grasshopper can be used to generate complex 3d structures procedurally by chaining together operations using its node-based IDE. KUKA:prc enables you to program industrial robots directly out of the parametric modeling environment, including a full kinematic simulation of the robot. The generated files can be executed at the KUKA robot, without requiring any additional software. The new release includes several preset profiles existing KUKA robots and is free (at least for the time being) to download and test here .
GstarCAD MC 1.3 was released for Apple's IOS. Users will find it very convenient to deploy this new software on Apple's new tablet at the places where desktop PCs and laptop computers are unmanageable.
Research and Markets: Cleaning Robots Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018
Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the robots automate cleaning functions in the home making it easier for working people and older people to keep a nice home.
HDT's Protector robot won the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization's (JIEDDO) Disrupt Challenge, outperforming all other competitors in what JIEDDO describes as the most difficult and important challenge event at the Robotics Rodeo. The JIEDDO Disrupt Challenge assesses the ability of a system to disable IED pressure-sensitive trigger switches and tripwires in a tactical environment without detonating devices.
Without proper pallet tracking, manufacturers run the risk of costly product recalls, as well as negative impact on brand image. Often entire batches of affected product must be recalled due to insufficient pallet identification, even when errors exist for only a portion of a given shipment.
The oceans are unfathomable, dark and dangerous; yet researchers are building undersea robots that can find their way in the mysterious deep. Scientists now have a variety of research and work vehicles to explore where no man has gone before.
Concerns of robots maintaining tolerances and producing finish quality parts were put to rest by the live machining done at both booths.
Mitsubishi Electric Automation has created a new website, www.MitsubishiRobotics.com, for its full line of robots and their applications. The website is a hub of information about robotic solutions for customers in diverse industries engaged in a variety of processes.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
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.
