4 Amazing Advancements in Robotic Grippers to Keep an Eye On

As manufacturing sectors of all kinds struggle with a growing labor gap, these collaborative grip designs can help streamline facility workflows, reducing the labor necessary to complete tasks while keeping the facility flexible and adaptable.

Contamination-free automation

Like any mechanism, robots can shed particles from belts, gasses from hoses and dust particles from the movement of the end effectors. It is this particle disbursement that can be the critical issue for clean room robotics.

Variance and Volume Advantageously Combined One of a Kind in Series

Up until now, users in the metal and plastics processing industries often faced a difficult choice: with CNC lathes and milling machines, one opted either for the largest possible variance or for large volumes, i.e., high quantities.

Labor Shortages Impact on the Automation in the eCommerce Boom

Automation and robotics create such a dynamic industrial ecosystem that it will continue to adapt to increased demand for consumer products. We'll see more artificial intelligence being deployed and utilized.

Zimmer Group Supports Vischer & Bolli Robot Cell With Kuka Robots and a Bespoke Gripper

Almost all tasks that previously had to be carried out by hand at Zimm are now performed fully au-tomatically by a KR QUANTEC and a KR AGILUS from KUKA. The five-axis milling machine is supplied with raw material via a lift system.

Zimmer Group System Technology - Development Competence at Just the Right Time

The technological change in the automotive industry, among others, is also affecting the Zimmer Group - the automation specialist from Germany is well prepared.

Toyota Research Institute Shares Design to Help Advance the Field of Soft Robotics

The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is helping to accelerate the field of soft robotics by sharing the design source files and full build instruction for its innovative domestic robot hands.

Robotics in Woodworking - The Zimmer Group reaches deep into its bag of tricks for Schmidt

The manufacturer of the robot processing cell is the Zimmer Group from Rheinau in Germany. On its way towards Industry 4.0, the Zimmer Group has evolved from a classic component supplier to a system provider and has thus produced an entire robotic cell at once.

Grasping Static Electricity for Revolutionary Robotics - Nike-backed Start-up Automates the Impossible

Following Grabit's inception in 2013, Nike Inc. made an investment in the company and later became one of the first customers to buy its materials handling robot system, Stackit. Using Stackit, Nike can manufacture 600 pairs of shoes in just one eight-hour shift.

Axis compensation module from the XYR1000-B series with new linear guide and new installation sizes

Zimmer Group is announcing the introduction of an updated version of its established XYR1000 axis compensation module series.

Bringing Handling Technology to Life

In the "KUKoMo" project, new robot solutions for collaborative assembly activities in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were tested for their feasibility and transferred to demonstrator solutions for cross-industry applications.

Coval introduces a vacuum chamber for gripping protective masks

Coval's CVGM series mini vacuum chamber is designed to handle light and porous objects, such as protective masks, but also fabric or leather cut-outs.

Robots in the factory: bosses or slaves?

Industrial robots have long had a reputation problem. In fact, distrust in automation has led to slow adoption in some countries. Even in the US, the International Federation of Robotics' 2019 report found that adoption rates were 49 per cent below what was expected.

Advantages of Vacuum driven Soft Grips for Food Production

The main advantage of having lightweight EOAT is the ability to handle the objects while not adding much weight to the end of the robot arm. This enables using smaller robots/machines as all their power can be utilized to handle the food products.

New Robotic Grippers Transforming the Food Sector

While traditional robotics systems have successfully served the food sector for many years in palletizing (and some packaging) applications, it is only in recent years that it has become possible for robots to handle delicate food items directly.
