Novarc Technologies Launch Collaborative Robot Demonstration Units in Germany and United Arab Emirates

Manufacturers in Europe and the Middle East can now visit demo centres to see Novarc's Spool Welding Robot, the World's First Collaborative Welding Robot in Action

Novarc Technologies, a Canadian-based robotics company specializing in the design and commercialization of collaborative robots for industrial applications, announced today it will be launching demonstration sites of its Spool Welding Robot("SWR") in the Dubai Investment Park 2 (DIP2) in Dubai, UAE, and in Buseck, Germany. These demonstration centres will open in July 2019 and be operated with Novarc's global partner, ABICOR BINZEL, the leading manufacturer of manual and robotics welding equipment for medium and high automation production.


"We are very excited to bring the SWR to new markets outside North America for the first time ever. Now, customers in Europe and the Middle East can visit demo centres to see the SWR in action," says Soroush Karimzadeh, CEO of Novarc Technologies.

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.
