Collaborative robots need safe, sensitive and flexible end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) and there were many vendors - and some breakthrough technologies - demonstrated at the two shows.
Retailers and logistics companies have been opening facilities at a record pace and in this fast-paced world, warehousing and logistics managers are looking for robotics solutions to remain competitive.
The category positively correlates with the data speed. I.E. the higher the category, the higher the possible frequency and the higher the frequency, the higher the possible data rate.
Design thinking is a problem solving approach that focuses on people and their emotional responses. It helps identify what matters to people, both outside and inside of the organization.
U.S. labor statistics project we will be short some two million manufacturing workers in the next 10 years.
Industry 4.0 will significantly alter the traditional model of pushing products to market, instead creating a more collaborative environment between goods producers and their customers.
Automate 2017 will be held from April 3rd - 6th at Chicago's McCormick Place. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Our booth will feature several of our 6-Axis and SCARA robots including the newly announced Flexion N-Series which features the world's first folding arm design.
"Our focus on growing this network of technology partners to ensure fast and easy deployment of our robot arms is what really differentiates us from competitors. We're hoping to grow the platform to feature around 100 UR+ solutions by the end of 2017."
The feeding system can handle parts smaller than 0.1 mm and up to 10 mm in size.
TM Robotics will be announcing the newest 6-axis robot from Toshiba Machine. Customers are looking for light to medium duty robots to perform tasks, without breaking the bank.
We will feature four live robotic demonstrations and a variety of products on display in our booth. Our knowledgeable account managers will be on site as well to help with your specific applications.
This is Allied Motion's inaugural exhibition at Automate. So visitors will see, many for the first time, our capabilities and products for automation industry solutions.
"Mecademic created an innovative category of industrial robots; one that disrupts what is considered small, compact and precise"
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.

Factory Automation - Featured Product
BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
