Dual-Arm Collaborative Robots Increase Flexibility and Accuracy

James Anderton for Engineering.com:  Robotics are an ideal technology for fine assembly tasks, such as those in the electronics industry.

In the video above, we look at a new collaborative robot, or cobot, solution for assembly applications: the Kawasaki duAro.

“The duAro is an eight-axis collaborative robot,” said Max Falcone, senior manager of systems engineering at Kawasaki Robotics USA Inc. “We do full force, torque and speed monitoring through our Cubic S device, which is a Class Four safety rated device within the robot. The robot itself has a full fieldbus capability, so we support Ethernet IP, several slave modules, CC-Link and DeviceNet as well, so we can incorporate things like screw feeders and screw guns very easily.”  Full Article:

SICK, Inc. - Low-Cost LiDAR: Higher Technology That's Easy to Use

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
