EZ-Robot Manufacturing Upgrades Launched to Meet Rising Demand for Robotics Kit

Responding to skyrocketing product demand, EZ-Robot, provider of the world's most powerful and easy-to-use robotics platform, is pleased to announce its new infrastructure and manufacturing system.

EZ-Robot, a Canadian robotics start-up, provides the world with a revolutionary platform that places robotics in the hands of everyone. Having quickly outgrown from the prototyping phase, EZ-Robot is happy to announce that a new infrastructure is in place, operational, and ready to push the limits of robotics to new heights.


In December 2011, EZ-Robot was unexpectedly featured on the popular tech blog Engadget. The instant exposure was every start-up's dream, however, as EZ-Robot quickly learned; it was not all blue skies ahead. "The phenomenal response from the article helped us realize the necessity to provide a powerful and easy robot platform," said DJ Sures, CEO of EZ-Robot. "It also confirmed that the current infrastructure we had in place was not going to cut it. Within hours of the article being released, we sold out of inventory, the server crashed, and there was no chance of re-stocking any time soon. It wasn't until after this exposure that I realized I could convert my life-long passion into a company that inspires everyone to pursue their passion for robotics. In order for this to happen, I needed to re-structure EZ-Robot's supply chain as well as fill important positions of responsibility within the company" stated DJ Sures.

EZ-Robot continued to add new features to the software during the re-structuring process, making their platform even more powerful. Another focus was to continue building and supporting the social EZ-Community. "We are motivated by our customer's experience. It encourages us to continue growing and pushing our platform to the next level. In conjunction with supporting amateur robot hobbyists, I also want to inspire and provide others with the tools they need to be successful at inventing new products with our platform" said DJ Sures. Using EZ-Robot, customers have been able to create unique robots for a wide variety of uses, some of which include: friendly companions, education, home automation, security, disability/elderly assistance, and those dreaded household cleaning chores.

EZ-Robot is defining personal robotics by providing a powerful, expandable and easy-to-use platform to personalize your dream robots. EZ-Robot invites you to visit our website at http://www.ez-robot.com to see how the EZ-Community is working together to change the world, one robot at a time!

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
