Robotics and AI-based Automation in the Post Pandemic Era

There are several industries that I believe will take off in the post-pandemic era. First and foremost are e-commerce and contactless shopping; this is an industry in which new protocols are expected to continue as social distancing has become mandatory.

Linux-based Software for Automation

Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.

Automakers and Their Suppliers Turning More and More to Robotic Testing

Robotic testing using a forming gas or helium is proving to be the easiest, most efficient way to ensure fuel-injection system safety and reliability without the need for additional manpower.

Preparing to be Acquired: COVID-19 Has Inspired Small Manufacturers to Embrace Robotics

Every position is being assessed by small manufacturers. Jobs that can be replaced with robots make the company more attractive for a potential buyer.

Avoiding Unnecessary Downtime in Semiconductor Production

Since the CrackScan and EdgeScan inspection solutions have been proven to increase productivity, a semiconductor producer and technology leader has now opted for the ISRA technology that is unique on the market.

The Increased Role of Robots Post Pandemic

As contact becomes more dangerous, and people pivot to working from home, robots have emerged as a powerful tool for businesses and organizations wanting to keep everyone safe.

A Lot of Power in a Very Small Space

Drive Systems evolved. Generally speaking, electric motors are not "lone wolves" but for most applications need to be combined with gearheads for speed reduction as well as encoders.

Business Perspectives and the Impacts of COVID-19 - Q&A with Universal Robots

Universal Robots' VP of Operations and Supply Chain, Martin Kjærbo shares with us his thoughts on how Universal Robots is managing through the pandemic as well as insights into what the future of Robotics and Automation may be.

5G and New Industrial Use Cases

How can industrial equipment companies keep pace with the push to economize and modernize, to be more data-centric, and to provide safety and security in the face of constant innovation?

Case Study: Swiss Productions Maximizes Output with Two Productive Robotics OB7 Cobots

A high quality, efficient, and reliable screw CNC machine shop making two million parts per month, Swiss Productions gained a competitive advantage by implementing two OB7 cobots on their CNC mills to eliminate idle spindle time and maximize production.

7 Cable Management Mistakes to Avoid

Basic considerations at the beginning of assembling a cable management system can prevent costly problems later on, such as a loss of continuity, insulation damage, mechanical deformation, or EMI problems.

Enough Space for a Cool Head - Case Study from Schmalz, Inc.

What should you do if you want an ergonomic lifting aid, but your ceiling height is too low for conventional crane systems? Schmalz's solution is a modular flat jib made of aluminum that guarantees smooth movement sequences, even in rooms with low ceilings.

How has COVID-19 Impacted the Collaborative Robot (Cobot) Industry

The use of cobots is on the rise and their use is encouraged to stay safe during the pandemic, as some businesses were severely affected due to the social-distancing orders. The collaborative robot market is experiencing an exponential growth.

Xpeng Opens Up New Smart EV Factory

Spanning a planned area of 3,000 acres (2 million square metres), it has five cutting-edge workshops including stamping, welding, painting, final assembly, and battery pack production.
