Stäubli to showcase new technology for medical industry automation at OrthoTec 2013

June 5-6, 2013 in Winona Lake, Indiana

Stäubli robotics is proud to be a part of OrthoTec, the premier event for orthopedic innovators and leaders from device manufacturers June 5-6, 2013 in Winona Lake, Indiana. The educational conference program features the industry's very best subject matter experts to discuss timely and relevant topics that will impact your device projects in the years to come. The exhibition is ideal setting for in-person meetings with top contract services and technology providers, and for hands-on access to the materials, technology, and services for orthopedic device development.


A medical industry automation leader, Stäubli will be showcasing lab automation solutions from the life science, pharmaceutical and medical laboratories industry leaders at booth 209. The clean, highly accurate range of four and six-axis robots provide the ideal solution to the unique demands of the life science industry including:

• Cleanroom applications
• Handling of vaccine flasks
• Automation of cell culture
• Seeding bottle gassing and cell scraping
• Drug discovery
• Plate handling

Stäubli also has an entire robot series designed the stringent requirements of VHP (Vapor Hydrogen Peroxide) decontamination in isolator-barrier systems. Complex surface coatings and full encapsulation enable the robots to withstand hostile environments, even those involving corrosive H2O2. Their rigid structure delivers better dynamic performance, while specialized technology eliminates restrictive enclosures, problems related to glove ports and heavy mechanical arms, and other challenges typically associated with robotics in isolator systems.

Be sure to stop by booth 209 to learn more about these exciting products.

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.
