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

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
