Did you know Mitsubishi Electric robots feature simple programming and straightforward connectivity? Did you also know that Mitsubishi Robots form part of a complete lineup of industrial controller products?


At its "Discover Mitsubishi Robotics: Simple, Proven, Complete" exhibit at Automate 2013, Mitsubishi Electric Automation will showcase its latest cutting-edge robotics and control technologies. The exhibit is located at booth #854 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Automate is the largest solutions-based showcase of automation technologies in North America and runs January 21-24, 2013.

"Visitors will see a range of high-performance low-to-medium payload robots integrated with vision, such as the Robo-Pick demo which shows how Mitsubishi Robots can easily be integrated into flexible manufacturing systems" said Aravind Durai, Product Manager of Mitsubishi Robotics. Durai also added that there will be a daily drawing for an iPad® the first three days of the show.

Additional product and solution demonstrations such as Mitsubishi's iQ platform demo robot and the new MELSEC-F Series demo cell will be exhibited. The iQ Platform is unique in the automation industry, as it delivers Robot, PLC, Motion, and CNC control all on a single back plane, allowing users to have high-capacity communication between multiple machines and less wiring.

Mitsubishi's robots, PLCs, HMIs, and servos can be integrated into flexible manufacturing systems for many applications including packaging, machine tending, material handling, material removal, dispensing, inspection, kitting. "At Automate 2013, we'll show how easy it is to interface Mitsubishi equipment into an automation work cell," added Ben Sagan, Sr. Business Development Specialist, Mitsubishi Electric Automation.

In addition, an iPad will be given away daily the first three days of the show. All you have to do to enter the raffle is tour the Mitsubishi Electric booth, complete an entry form and deposit it in the drawing container. Winners will be notified by email within ten (10) business days. Prizes will be shipped to the winners within six (6) weeks of the close of the show.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
