SOUTH ELGIN, IL. - Matrix Design, LLC announces their recent recognition as a FANUC Certified Servicing Integrator. FANUC provides this certification to Authorized System Integrators who have demonstrated mastery in knowledge of robot operations, programming, troubleshooting, maintenance and preventative maintenance. Matrix service engineers were required to pass a series of rigorous tests and meet several criteria in order to achieve this status.


As a result, Matrix now has several certified and master certified service engineers. "This achievement demonstrates our commitment to the Matrix goal of maintaining the best trained team in the Automation Industry," says Karl Dahlman, Operations Excellence Manager. "We are continually striving to grow and learn new skills both in our Service Department and throughout the company."

"This certification allows us to service and complete any warranty job on a FANUC robot while performing service on the rest of the system.

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.
