BX suction cups made of double-strength Duraflex® in combination with Piab's COAX® vacuum generation technology have enabled Tradicional Panadera to palletize different carton formats with a single gripper.
Having the wrong elevated flooring surface — such as concrete, which frequently has uneven surfaces, cracks, and spalling — can significantly hamper the function and productivity of AGVs and AMRs.
End users are looking to machine builders to provide innovative solutions that improve upon the speed and accuracy of manual-based applications while maintaining the same level of flexibility.
Using ultramodern capabilities and world-class laboratory facilities, NREL’s energy storage researchers continue to push battery boundaries with materials development, thermal management, diagnostics, and modeling.
With another year over and more global issues to address, not only are there many technologies and innovations to reflect on this year, but there are also exciting new developments on the horizon for 2023.
Currently in the Písek location, 14 MiR robots are deployed. 7 of them, heavy duty MiR robots, mainly MiR600s, work in the area of finished goods, bringing empty pallets to the assembly lines and picking up full pallets to the logistics area.
One of the best ways today to improve business efficiency is through the use of warehouse robots. And while planning is underway to adopt warehouse robots, it's important to consider the most ideal flooring.

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components. Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.
