Next-Generation Robotics & Automation: Automotive Manufacturing Europe 2106

The Next-Generation Robotics & Automation: Automotive Manufacturing Europe conference takes place at The Vox, Birmingham, UK, 29-30 November, and London Business Conferences offer Robotics Tomorrow readers a discount to attend.

Automotive manufacturers across Europe understand that the next-generation of robotics and automation technologies is a revolutionary opportunity to upgrade automotive manufacturing across productivity, quality, safety and cost metrics.


However, questions remain as to how effective implementation can be achieved without impacting throughput, and many across recent research are still unaware of the full capabilities of these cutting-edge machines.

Next-Generation Robotics & Automation: Automotive Manufacturing Europe 2016 unites European Automotive Manufacturers and sub-contractors with pioneering robotics, tooling and automation providers to understand the evolution of the latest technology, and grapple with the techniques and considerations that must be addressed to maximise their value within specific manufacturing contexts.

Speakers include representation from BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Volvo Car Corporation and Daimler AG & Mercedes Benz Trucks.

We are pleased to be able to offer Robotics Tomorrow subscribers a 15% discount to attend. Please use registration code ROBTOM15 at the checkout.

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

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.
