It's easy to show a robot being programmed in a matter of minutes inside of a controlled virtual environment. But those programs need to translate to something useful in the real robot cell. The points that the robot will follow need to line up with the part properly.
The design and functionality of a DC motor controller depend on the characteristics of the motor and the electronic system it powers. Using the example of a brushed DC motor controller, we'll consider its operating principles and circuit design.
Our recent discussions with key players in the field confirm that MRO's operations will increase significantly in late 2021 or 2022. How will maintenance centres efficiently restart their operations? What impact can technology have in this recovery?
Grasping Static Electricity for Revolutionary Robotics - Nike-backed Start-up Automates the Impossible
Following Grabit's inception in 2013, Nike Inc. made an investment in the company and later became one of the first customers to buy its materials handling robot system, Stackit. Using Stackit, Nike can manufacture 600 pairs of shoes in just one eight-hour shift.
The challenge for many companies is how to consistently maintain a safe workplace without creating barriers to productivity or innovation. Enter autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
Can loads be positioned dynamically, with high precision and no oscillation, despite mechanical backlash and elastic components? Yes - using an intelligent system.
Zimmer Group is announcing the introduction of an updated version of its established XYR1000 axis compensation module series.
In today's e-commerce environment, consumers are purchasing single items with a click and that item-handling task has been pushed back upstream into distribution and fulfillment centers.
When it comes to starting and building a robotics company, a robust intellectual property protection strategy can be the driving force behind market share, strategic collaborations, and capital investments.
While alignment may be within acceptable tolerances during installation, deflection due to loads and thermal expansion or contraction may lead to misalignment. The use of an appropriate flexible coupler can compensate for such minor variations in alignment.
Stretch's mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required - unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.
Not every deployment of new robots goes smoothly. There are significant challenges to adopting any new technology, and the complexity of cutting-edge robotics means there is serious room for error when deploying industrial robots
There are many commutation schemes, many of which have hardware implications. Right now, we'll take a look at Field Oriented Control (a well-established method of commutation) and Field Estimated Control (IQ's new method of commutation).
To customize a robot interface, the only thing required is the robot HMI. However, there is a wide array of HMIs that differ from each other based on several factors. The challenge is to determine which is the best HMI.
Many production areas are already extremely short on space, so having a design that allows for streamlined goods-to-person capability is a game-changer. These benefits are combined with our best-in-class energy consumption.

Factory Automation - Featured Product
Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
