Factory Automation - Articles, Stories & Interviews
One of the key advantages of AMRs lies in their adaptability. Manufacturing processes often require frequent changes, reconfigurations, or repositioning of equipment and materials. AMRs can quickly and easily adapt to these changing requirements.
This advancement significantly improves robot utility and is a step towards building "Large Behavior Models (LBMs)" for robots, analogous to the Large Language Models (LLMs) that have recently revolutionized conversational AI.
Encoders make industrial robots accurate enough to perform positionally accurate machining and handling tasks on large components. Let’s talk about how.
Delta Line motors, particularly those in its rapidly expanding frameless range, offer exceptional power density and are well suited to meet the need for compact yet powerful motion solutions.
Ease of use will be prioritized, with user-friendly programming interfaces and modular designs, while industry-specific solutions and cost reductions will drive wider adoption across various sectors.
PACK EXPO 2023 takes place September 11th - 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Exhibit hall floor will be loaded with new products and services. Here is a preview of some things to look forward to at this years event.
Las Vegas is a place tailor-made for big reveals, which is why it’s the perfect location to launch our new XCP Series continuous motion case packer. The XCP is designed for that mid-level customer looking to package between 35-70 cases per minute.
