Single-source fulfillment technology, software delivers increased throughput and accuracy
In a human-machine study conducted by an MIT professor, it was shown that teams made of humans and robots collaborating efficiently can be more productive than teams made of either humans or robots alone.
The expansion will allow the company to better serve its growing customer base.
The CoaXPress® camera standard was developed nearly a decade ago to overcome the limitations of Camera Link™, which at the time was the most popular interface for machine vision systems requiring real time data in small volume systems.

Organizations must provide the right products, technology and education to fill the gap between what the industry wants and what educational institutions can provide. Yaskawa Motoman is addressing these critical needs with innovative products, curricula, training certification and services for education and industry.
Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 31E Series of rotary angle sensors. The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to an application's rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
High speed, high performance motor drives are required for applications such as printers, surveillance cameras, office automation equipment, banking terminals such as ATMs, banknote identification machines, amusement machines, and home appliances.
This release includes 49 best-in-class robots developed by OMRON Adept Technologies, Inc. These have been integrated with OMRON's family of sensors, safety components and award-winning NX/NJ series machine automation controllers to simplify the introduction of robots in a production environment.
Patrick Burnson for Logistics Management: “Robots work in many industries but haven’t made an impact on logistics yet because of the complexity of the work – handling a wide array of different things in an infinite number of combinations, close to people and in confined spaces,” says Matthias Heutger, Senior Vice President Strategy for the Group. “Current research shows that 80 percent of logistics facilities today are still manual. Recently, however, technology is just starting to catch up to meet demands for flexible and low-cost robots that could collaboratively work in logistics.” The report highlights that the development of the next generation of robots that can see, move, react to their environment and work at precision tasks alongside people, is on a fast track powered by the explosion in labor-intensive e-commerce and diminishing and ageing workforces.
