Are your processes Industry 4.0-ready?

Intelligent robots are necessary to remain competitive with Industry 4.0. Vision systems help robots make more intelligent decisions by giving “eyes” to robots, allowing you to automate any manufacturing process.

Vision systems from SICK enable flexible automation for positioning, inspection, and measurement tasks. It also promotes the use of collaborative robots or “cobots” as a means to effective and safe human-robot collaboration.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
