Stäubli Robotics illustrates robotic diversity in manufacturing environments with partners Shape Technologies and The Metrologic Group at IMTS 2018

The worlds premier manufacturer of specialty and sensitive environment robots will showcase superior automated solutions for manufacturing.

DUNCAN, S.C. (August 29, 2018) - Stäubli will showcase its robotic solutions, in two different locations within International Manufacturing Technology Show, September 10-15, 2018, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.

The Metrologic Group with Staubli Robotics will illustrate the first of its kind Coordinate Measuring Robot (CMR) combines Metrolog X4 i-Robot -Metrologic Groups robot-dedicated 3D measurement software built on over 35 years of expertise in 3D error mapping and compensation with Stäublis 6-axis TX2-60. The partnership allows the highly efficient mechanical robots developed by Stäubli achieving +/-100-micron accuracy in touch trigger mode, in a 1 cubic meter volume, and +/- 150-micron in optical laser scanning mode. As all the Metrologic Groups software suite does, the CMR can accommodate any kind of touch probe or optical sensor, of any make. Stop by Metrologic Groups booth #135653, east building to learn more about CMR.

Aquarese, a Shape Technologies Group company, will be demonstrating with Staubli Robotics several of their advanced applications including waterjet stripping, a coating removal process, waterjet blasting, an investment cast ceramic shell removal process, abrasive waterjet cutting, and high pressure waterjet deburring. Aquarese is a leading supplier of advanced waterjet manufacturing process solutions to Aerospace, Automotive, Defense, Semiconductor, and Energy markets. Aquarese will display at sister company Flow Internationals booth #236207.
Staubli Robotics prides itself in working with only the highest quality partners. Both The Metrologic Group and Aquarese join Staubli Robotics SMART technologies to todays fast paced, high productive manufacturing environments illustrated at IMTS 2018.
