FABTECH - Praxair to Unveil New Robotic Cutting System at FABTECH 2015

FABTECH show in Chicago, November 9-12

DANBURY, Conn.--Praxair, Inc. (NYSE:PX) announced today that it will debut a first-of-its-kind Robotic Cutting System, the Praxair ProStar PRS900, at the FABTECH show in Chicago, November 9-12.


Praxair (Booth N14049) will demonstrate how this breakthrough metal-cutting technology can help customers lower equipment investment, cut labor expenses and minimize operating costs, all while improving product quality and productivity.

"Put simply, Praxair's new PRS900 system provides fabricators with the ability to do much more with much less," said Craig Camp, Praxair cutting machine manager. "The system's modular design allows operators to use one machine to cut structural tube and beam as well as 2-D plate and domes. Additionally, its true complex 3-D movement and ability to create, share and acquire evolving cutting parameters online, using the proprietary PRS900 cutting system's web-based operator interface, provide users with new flexibility."

Praxair will also be supporting FABTECH exhibitors by providing the show's nitrogen supply. Through the use of skidded, portable microbulk cylinders and its microbulk supply capabilities, Praxair will ensure all exhibitors have access to nitrogen at the pressures they need.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
