This interdisciplinary program synergizes science, engineering, information systems and computing, focusing on manufacturing's next evolutionary step called Industry 4.0. The new facility ecosystem also has wide-ranging applications, opening up potential curriculum expansion.
Cloud-based software empowers customers using Mobile Industrial Robots' autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to make data-driven decisions, optimizing fleets performance, minimizing downtime
• Designed to meet growth opportunities in key markets including electronics, automotive and renewable energy production • Delivers 10% increase in throughput compared to other SCARA robots in its class by handling more and heavier workpieces at once • Offers 200% stronger push-down capability for force-intensive operations - improving productivity and product quality
At iREX in Japan today, Universal Robots demonstrated UR30's heavy payload capabilities by lifting a tire and a rim together. Since UR30 can handle up to 30 kg payload at its full reach regardless of the pose of the arm, UR30 can not only lift the tire but also change its orientation during the lift to demonstrate its unique payload performance.
