LEONI Brings Together Automation Technology, German Brew at Oktoberfest Networking Event

LEONI Engineering Products & Services, Inc. will be hosting an Oktoberfest-styled event on September 29, 2016, at its facility in Lake Orion, Michigan. Technology demonstration station will be set up to display LEONI EPS' various systems.

LEONI Engineering Products & Services, Inc. (LEONI EPS), part of Nuremberg-based LEONI AG and one of North America's leading supplier of robot equipment, automation training, and machine vision solutions, will celebrate its German roots and the benefits of automation technology during an Oktoberfest-styled event on September 29, 2016, at its facility in Lake Orion, Mich.

The event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and is open to representatives from industrial companies across North and Central America, will include German food and beer, as well as five technology demonstration stations to show off LEONI EPS' five groups: Robotic Solutions, Machine Vision, Automation Systems Training, Service, and Automation & Drive Cable Solutions. Each demonstration station will contain multiple automation systems for visitors to review while LEONI staff members make themselves available to answer any automation-related question.
"Who could be in a better position to answer questions on automation technologies than a company that is certified as an educational and training institution in the U.S.?" said Jean-Marc Vico, Vice President and General Manager of LEONI EPS, referring to his company's two automation systems training facilities in Michigan and Tennessee. "But even more than demonstrations, our Oktoberfest celebration will bring together the tight-knit automation professionals community and give them a chance to network in a casual yet festive environment."
The event will run throughout the day to accommodate everyone's schedules. Periodically, LEONI engineers will tap a new German beer keg at each demonstration station. Demonstration stations will include all of LEONI's primary products and services, including the LSH3 dress pack system and tool center point (TCP) automated robotic end effector calibration and protection system from the Robotic Solutions group; color machine vision and camera-based 3D profilometers from the Machine Vision group; mobile portable robotic workcells built to show the breadth of expertise provided by LEONI's Automation Systems Training group; and commissioning and programming automation systems from the Service group.

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.
