The recent developments in algorithms and sensor technologies make it possible to efficiently implement vision guided robotics tasks for manufacturers.
Understanding an application's requirements is critical in choosing the best device for successful data acquisition.
RPA can bring about a "virtual integration" of multiple systems while executing repetitive work more accurately and reliably than humans can.
The idea of many connected devices helping better control the factory floor is not new. IoT in one sense is merely a shift to internet addressable devices versus those either addressed by proprietary means or just "dumb".
A Competitive Alternative to Traditional Linear and Rotary Position Sensors.
8tree's portable 3D scanner enables easy, fast surface inspection in the automotive and aerospace industries. A Manta digital camera from Allied Vision contributes to rapid and accurate measurement.
SMAC's LAR Series linear-rotary actuators provide the ideal technology for improving capping quality while cost-effectively providing 100% real time on- and off-torquing validation.
The vision system sends coordinates to the robot so it can be gripped by the robot regardless of position.
Automate 2015 was a perfect platform where the full spectrum of automation solutions and emerging technologies from across the board came together - inspiring greater and more creative collaborations and paving the way to greater global industrial success.
I believe that highly specialized companies developing core components are responsible for progress in the field of robotics.
Sometimes it is not specific hardware that a consumer may need, but a service of integrating automation tactics from a team of industry experts.
The main objective was to install a flexible robotic palletizing solution that can handle heavy stacks up to 130 lbs at the end of the printing line, and handle the highest throughput of 8 stacks per minute on one particular product.
Here you will find a summary of some of the great new products and innovations from Automate 2015:
Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz is making its North American debut at ProMat 2015 (booth #5521) in Chicago, IL, with a focus on automating e-commerce fulfillment centers.
With the robotic board handling system, the company increased production an average of 20-30 percent and as high as 60 percent on some products.

Allied Motion - New MFH170i Housed Brushless Torque Motor Has Integrated Servo Drive and Optical Encoder
Allied Motion's Megaflux MFH170i series of 170 mm (6.7 in) diameter housed brushless torque motors consists of a high performance brushless DC torque motor, a digital servo drive, and an optical encoder, all integrated into a rugged machined aluminum housing with robust duplex bearings. The MFH0170i series features a 63.5 mm (2.5 in) large-bore through shaft, and is characterized by a very high torque-to-inertia ratio. There are three stack lengths in the series with peak torque ranging from 8.5 up to 16.9 Nm (75 up to 150 lb-in). The standard winding voltage is 48 V. And to ease the hassle of long leadtimes for prototypes, the new MFH170i is now available through our QuickShip program.
