“Customers continue to shift toward more flexible solutions to support a variety of tasks. ATI’s product families are configured to order and designed to increase process flexibility.” Booth #4411
Conveyors, although often a last thought, can play a pivotal role in the optimization of a manufacturing facility. A processing line can only go as fast as the slowest piece of equipment. Booth #5014
“Stäubli’s vision for the factory of the future is built on interconnected devices that operate collaboratively with humans to improve efficiency and the quality of goods,” said Sebastien Schmitt, Robotics Division Mgr of Stäubli NA.“ Booth #4524
Robots aren’t always given a favorable representation in pop culture. In Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), homicidal supercomputer HAL 9000 demonstrates how a robot could conspire against its human colleagues.
VCaaS is financially and strategically beneficial to both the corporate partner and to the startup as the operating costs and time required for the company are significantly lower than if it were to train and pay its own team of venture capital investors.
When most think of sustainability in business, the concept of green processes is not always top of mind. However, incorporating technology, and more specifically robotics and cloud connected devices, creates a secondary sustainability effect that is markedly more streamlined

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails
IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
