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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
