Automation Is a Game Changer for Supply Chains

That's not to say the entire supply chain, from end to end, will be automated in full. There will always be people involved in its operations. However, some degree of automation is essential to keeping things moving.

HEIDENHAIN at IMTS 2022

Digital manufacturing starts with HEIDENHAIN. We will be showing software solutions that allows you to model your entire production chain, thus digitalizing your shop floor.

MassRobotics, Festo, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, MITRE and Novanta Join Efforts to Support Healthcare Robotics Startups

The program focuses on startups in the areas of clinical care, public safety, laboratory, supply chain automation, out-of-hospital care, and quality of life. It also addresses continuity of work and education, as well as training and support for healthcare professionals.

Automating Labor Dependent Tasks in High Mix/Low Volume Production

Action plastics maximizes OB7's flexibility to automate several different tasks within their high mix/low to mid volume production, freeing up operators and enabling a more flexible work environment.

Automating Industrial Inspection With Autonomous Mobile Robots

Through regular and thorough inspections, faults, wear and tear, and defects can be detected at an early stage and proactively acted upon, thus preventing production downtimes.

Cobots - electric or pneumatic?

The simple design of pneumatic systems mean that the cobots are expected to be more durable and require less maintenance than their electric counterparts.

The Developing Role of Drones In Manufacturing

It's easy to mistake drones for glorified cameras, especially since many applications rely on the aerial photography and videography technology built into most unmanned vehicles. However, modern drones can do so much more.

How Autonomous Robots Drive ROI in the Internet of Things

Rather than replace analog gauges and processes with an array of high cost and specialized connected sensors, forward-looking companies are deploying advanced robots that bring the sensors to where and when they're needed most.

Overcoming the Challenges of Automated Bin Picking

According to Universal Robots (UR), in 2019, around 38 per cent of the manufacturing labor force still moved parts manually between bins and manufacturing machines, rather than use industrial robots.

Early bird registration for RoboBusiness ends August 20, 2022

RoboBusiness 2022 will take place October 19-20 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Since its founding in 2004, RoboBusiness evolved into the world's premier robotics business development event.

Safely Integrating Robots and AI Into Your Warehouse Workforce

While integrating robots and AI into our warehouses can help with production and quality assurance, care must be taken when this tech is first introduced. Managers need to familiarize their employees with these innovations..

Industrial Robots Vs (or With?) Cobots

Apart from being unsafe for workers, and thus requiring specific safety measures within their working area, industrial robots are also exceedingly expensive and difficult to set up and redeploy.

Berkshire Grey and FedEx Expand Their Robotic Automation Solutions Relationship

The new product development agreement is an expansion of this collaboration and offers new opportunities for the two companies to work together to further increase efficiencies across the FedEx enterprise using AI-enabled robotic automation.

Using Remote Operation to Help Solve Labor Shortage Issues in the Supply Chain

Our remotely operated forklifts allow operators to do their jobs from up to thousands of miles away. This is critically important to our customers, who have been dealing for decades with a labor shortage that recently has become even more acute than ever before.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

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.
