New Record Sales of Collaborative Robots Reveal Increasing Demand for End-Of-Arm-Tooling

With a growth of 23 percent in annual installations of collaborative robots (cobots) from 2017 to 2018, the new World Robotics Report, published by International Federation of Robotics shows a huge demand for end-of-arm-tooling, (EoAT). In 2018 almost 14,000 new cobot arms were installed, and if this rise continues, that number will double in approximately three years, prompting an unprecedented EoAT market opportunity that OnRobot is ready to address.

Embedded 3D vision High-resolution 3D data directly from the camera

If large volumes or several object views are to be checked automatically by 3D cameras, e.g. on constantly running production lines in the automotive industry, high-resolution 3D result data must be generated and processed quickly. Stereo camera systems with large 5 MP sensors and variable baselines provide the ideal output data. However, interfaces and CPU power can quickly form the bottleneck in such high-performance 3D applications.

Honeywell Intelligrated - Solve Loading Dock Challenges With Robotic Unloading

Challenges on the loading dock are characteristic of greater pressures from the rise of e-commerce. Loading and unloading freight from trailers, trucks and shipping containers are arduous, repetitive tasks plagued by high turnover. Even with regularly available staff, manually unloading freight and the constant lifting and twisting results in fatigue and inconsistent, declining productivity. Robotics capable of fully automating unloading tasks bring a new paradigm to the dock. High performance and flexibility push unloading from a labor-heavy, manual chore to an automated, refined process. High-performing DC workers can take more desirable positions, with relief from unpleasant work conditions. Management gets to replace uncertainty and staffing challenges with a reliable, automated process, with data to fuel continuous improvement.
