Stäubli to Exhibit at Automate 2013

January 21 - 24, 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago

A global leader in automation technology, Stäubli has announced plans to exhibit at AUTOMATE 2013 in Booth 668. Billed as "North America's Broadest Automation Event," AUTOMATE 2013 will take place January 21 - 24, 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago.


The biannual AUTOMATE conference offers a unique opportunity to discover the latest automation solutions for a wide range of industries, making it an ideal showcase for Stäubli. An automation pioneer with a history spanning more than 100 years, Stäubli develops automation technologies for every industry - plastics, automotive, energy, life sciences, food, transportation and many others - continually setting new standards in speed, efficiency and productivity.

Stäubli's Robotics and Connectors Divisions, along with the Stäubli Group company Multi-Contact, which specializes in connector systems for power generation, will each present advanced automation solutions at AUTOMATE 2013.

The Robotics Division will demonstrate its TP80 Fast Picker, a high-speed robot capable of handling small parts with absolute precision at 200 picks per minute. The robotics showcase will also include demonstrations of Stäubli's TX200 robot with tool changers and, in an interactive sequence, the TX60L and TX40 robots will simulate the production of a pneumatic connector. One robot will tend a mock CNC machine and perform vision inspections. When a part fails, it will hand it off to the second robot, which will test the part for quality and refine it.

Stäubli's Connectors Division will demonstrate how its robotic tool changers can be used to minimize user intervention and optimize cycle times. It will also show customized multi-coupling systems that allow users to define all parameters of an application for personalized solutions. Stäubli's modular quick release couplings for fluids and gases will also be on display.

Multi-Contact will present its highly versatile CombiTac modular connection system, which provides fast, centralized connection of all energy circuits with a wide range of configuration possibilities. Multi-Contact will also exhibit Robifix, a primary circuit connector for welding robots that greatly simplifies the integration of power supplies into robotic systems.

Stäubli technology experts will be on hand to answer questions and help attendees make the most of the event. There will also be giveaways, delivered by - what else - an interactive robot! The show is free, and attendees are invited to register at www.automate2013.com.

Featured Product

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction. Standardized use of stain
