The first European Edition of the Premier Business Development Event for the global Robotics Industry will take place in Genoa, April 11-12

Pittsburgh, PA - October 23, 2012 - EH Publishing and Innovability today announced an alliance to bring RoboBusiness Leadership Summit to Europe. The inaugural RoboBusiness Europe event will take place April 11-12 in Genoa, Italy, at Magazzini del Cotone - Porto Antico Conference Center.

RoboBusiness Europe builds on the hugely successful experience of eight years in the United States and will closely follow the RoboBusiness Leadership Summit format as a business focused event attended by the world's leading roboticists, business and investment professionals, along with academics, with interests in widely differing markets - rescue, healthcare, industrial and so on.

The event will feature keynote and general sessions by industry leaders, as well as an exposition floor featuring the latest robotics technologies, giving all the participants the information and connections needed to plan for, build, finance and manage a successful robotics business.

"We're extremely proud to cooperate with EH Publishing to create RoboBusiness Europe for accelerating the commercial advancement of the robotics industry," commented Gianluigi Ferri, Innovability's Chairman of the Board. "We believed in this project since the beginning and now we are ready to start a sharply focused and professional meeting point for all players. Together with our local partner, Clickutility, we gathered the interest of the Italian robotics industry and the support of the local government agencies in Genoa."

"I believe the cooperation between EH Publishing and Innovability will be the foundation for the creation of the most important event on the Robotics industry in Europe," states Richard Erb, General Manager EH Robotics Trends Media Group. "Innovability has an excellent reputation and will be successful in producing the definitive event for the region," added Mr. Erb.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
