TechNavio Publishes SCARA Robot Market Report Ahead of ASME’s Advanced Design & Manufacturing Impact Forum 2014

ASME’s Advanced Design & Manufacturing Impact Forum

LONDON--TechNavio, a global tech-focused research firm has announced the publication of its Global SCARA Robot Market report, ahead of ASME's Advanced Design & Manufacturing Impact Forum from August 17th-20th, in Buffalo, New York.

SCARA Robot Market

A SCARA robot is a horizontally configured robot capable of performing horizontal movements. Since these robots do not have rotary joints, their movements are restricted to the horizontal axis. These robots can perform flexible horizontal motions while they are fixed vertically.

SCARA robots are being adopted across industries for various applications such as in clean rooms for wafer and disk handling purposes (particularly in the Electrical and Electronics industry) and in the assembly process in the Automotive and Electrical and Electronics industries. These robots are ideally suited for horizontal operations with limited scope for vertical movements. As a result of their versatile configuration, SCARA robots have several advantages over Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical robots.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global SCARA Robot Market will grow at a CAGR of 4.38 percent over the period 2014-2018.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
