KUKA to Showcase Educational Printing, Milling and Welding Solutions at ACTE's CareerTech VISION 2018

KUKA will demonstrate its diverse robotic educational cells aimed at providing students with a competitive edge in education and opportunities in the STEM job market

KUKA, a global supplier of intelligent automation solutions, will demonstrate its educational printing, milling and welding cells at ACTEs CareerTech VISION 2018 in San Antonio, Texas from November 28 - December 1. ACTEs CareerTech VISION 2018 provides educators, industry representatives and business leaders with professional development and networking opportunities in career and technical education.

Attendees can visit KUKAs booth #221 to view a series of demonstrations from the KUKA Robotics KORE Program, including innovative collaborations with the advanced manufacturing leader and KUKA System Partner RSI. The KUKA Robotics KORE Program provides hands-on educational robot solutions for high schools, community colleges, universities, and technical centers to further educate STEM students and teach operational skills, fundamentals and control technology programming using real robotic hardware.

There will be a team of KUKAs application experts on hand to discuss which solutions can help attendees provide students with real-world robotic printing, milling and welding education for the classroom or production floor. The solutions on display include:

KUKA KORE ready2_print Education Cell: Equipped with an automatic tool setter and easy to use operator interface, the ready2_print cell is compatible with a wide range of soft materials, including clay and wax. Each modular cell combines hands-on education with real-world, robotic printing applications to shorten the learning curve associated with the acquisition of programming and operational skills.
KUKA KORE ready2_mill Education Cell: This affordable and versatile cell lends itself equally to both the educational and manufacturing industries, delivering hands-on robotic milling training with a variety of soft materials, including wood, foam and plastic. Each turn-key cell combines a compact design with effortless mobility to deliver a flexible solution that can be quickly moved and implemented throughout your training or production environment.
ready2_ educate_KORE Welding Cart: The welding care comes complete with KUKAs KR 6 R700 AGILUS robot, Miller Electrics Auto Continuum 350 Welding Power Supply and Tregaskiss torch. Additionally, it comes with course curriculum including welding application and exercise equipment.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
