Accurate Motion in Inaccurate Situations

It can be difficult to install and adjust two parallel linear guides for smooth and precise motion. The most common obstacle is binding which can result when mounting surfaces aren't exactly parallel. UtiliTrak® linear guides are designed with some unique features to compensate for mounting surface errors so that absolute parallelism is not required. This can save time and frustration.

Extra-small Precision Robot Arm

"Mecademic created an innovative category of industrial robots; one that disrupts what is considered small, compact and precise"

Trends in Service Robots

Robots that deliver essential items, entertain and inform, or teach your kids are becoming more common - and they'll become even more so in the coming year.

Precision Robotics and Automation: Hexapods Advance Production Processes

Traditional robots can handle heavy loads at high speed, but lack positioning accuracy. Hexapod robots - six-legged parallel-kinematic machines - have a long history in precision optics alignment & micro / nano-manufacturing automation. They were considered overkill for traditional industrial automation applications, but the need for miniaturization and higher precision is rapidly changing the situation. New high-speed fieldbus interfaces facilitate integration with PLC or CNC controllers.

Hot Jobs Study Reports IT a Top Industry

For entry level manufacturing positions, higher education is not normally required. Instead, a personal and commercial driver's license, and special certifications such as an Occupational Safety & Health Administration Certification, Food Safety Program education, and HAZM

Machine Covers & Way Protection

The close proximity of moving parts often excludes the feasibility of static protective enclosures. The machine tool may create an environment in which its parts must be protected from its work processes, yet need to move without obstruction.

Automated Parking Solutions

Most of the innovations in automated parking design have come from the architects and developers as they are now more conscious of integrating the garage into the overall design.

International Robot Exhibition 2017

With already 500 companies reserving to 2000 Exhibiting booths, IREX 2017 is again back this year to showcase the latest Robots in Japan.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
