Event on Economic Potential of Industrial Robots to be Held in Garching

DENSO Robotics and the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management of the Technical University of Munich (IWB) invites you to "The Economic Potential of industrial robots - Challenges for use in Small and Medium-Sized Companies" event on 16 October 2013 in Garching near Munich.

During this event, we will exhibit how to solve automation tasks with the help of industrial robots in medium-sized companies. This lecture series presents the current state of robotics applications and the need to achieve these goals.


The main focus of this trade event is to consider industrial robots in economic terms, specifically regarding the integration into existing processes and their impact on current employees.

Our contributution to the event, entitled "Efficient Solutions in the Production Process Through the use of Robotic Technology," will focus on the following topics:

*Cost-benefit of industrial robots

*Efficient workforce and increasing employee motivation through task enhancement and training opportunities

*Presentation of examples of successful automation

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
