Representative Korean Robotics Companies to Participate in US 'AUTOMATE 2017'

KIRIA supervises Korea joint display booth…to raise the status of Korean robotics companies globally

DAEGU, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Korea's leading companies in the robot industry participated in the 'AUTOMATE 2017' exhibition held at MCCORMICK PLACE CHICAGO from April 3rd-6th under the supervision of KIRIA.


Participants include: ERAETECH, JINI, IR ROBOT, SBB TECH, COREBELL systems, YOUNG JIN HI_TECH. Each company will Exhibit their core products and undertake global marketing. The KIRIA Booth will be set-up in Exhibition Hall B, N2711.

Participants cover a wide, impressive spectrum. ERAETECH is a motion control company providing the key part of automatic system products such as stepping motor, servo motor, driver, and controller using accumulated technology and know how. Their technology is receiving market recognition.

JINI has developed wearable POS to improve sellers' sale management environments. Its technical power was proven by the Certificate of New Excellent Technology (NET). Since then, JINI has steadily conducted research and development for consumers to enjoy more comfortable and convenient ICT services through its technology.

IR ROBOT is the professional manufacturer for robotic parts in various fields. "mightyZAP", the robust mini linear servo motors for industrial applications will launch here. IR ROBOT prides itself on creating the best quality products at affordable prices.

SBB TECH will introduce Robot Drive, MR Actuator Module and MR Robot. SBB TECH is the first domestically to manufacture LCD and semiconductor-use actuator, robot precision control accelerator and MR. Korea's core industry, precision driving technology, hopefully, will receive the spotlight through this exhibition.

COREBELL systems should launch Multi Product Palletizing Systems and Smart Vehicles. A map is made first as the base, allowing self movement to the destination while avoiding obstacles through a robot platform which recognizes self location based on location decision technology.

YOUNG JIN HI_TECH specializes in manufacturing FA SYSTEM. This system, developed through in-house technology, is required for plant automation. Development of IT equipment-use vibrator motor, focused on the technology R&D research center, has allowed expansion into the components industry. PCB Router and Eco-friendly In-Line Robot Systems should launch here.

As many companies representing the Korean robot industry are participating in this way, the attention of global visitors and buyers to AUTOMATE 2017 is expected to be higher than ever.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
