Around 20 million cutter blades for hair clippers and beard trimmers leave the Philips plant at Klagenfurt every year. In order to make the complex grinding process as efficient as possible, the company has opted for a pioneering automation concept, where the loading of the machine and the delivery of the parts is fully automated.
Automating packaging processes can improve productivity, quality and safety on site. Unsurprisingly then, it has become a crucial investment for packaging facilities.
Imagine a factory floor with fast wireless charging pads or stations that doesn't require a human operator to make a physical connection and placed strategically around a facility to enable maximum uptime.
Not only can robots easily assist with large payloads and separate people from traditionally dirty tasks, but they also take mundane duties off of workers' plates, such as fastening.
Aircraft Tooling, a Texas-based repair center for the aviation industry, was surprised to find that Universal Robots could withstand the high temperatures and harsh environment while performing metal powder and plasma spray processes. The UR "cobots" have now been in operation for three years without breakdown or service requirements.
FT-Produktion Boosts Output Capacity Without Adding Personnel by Employing Combination of Collaborative Robots and Robot Grippers
"We chose a combination of solutions from OnRobot, Universal Robots, and EasyRobotics because they are easy to program, and the investment will pay for itself in just nine months. It's one of the best business decisions we've ever made."
We provide motion control solutions in the form of electric motors, drives and motion control solutions for OEM Customers who are unsatisfied with having to design around inflexible off-the-shelf products.
Mobile robots, in the form of AGVs, have been on the market for nearly two decades. But a topical innovation in the sector is creating power requirements that the battery market must respond to.
Where motion is the key to a great cup of coffee, duplicating the precision and reliability of the motion of a person's hand, wrist, and elbow require a unique robotic design.
With Exyn's fully autonomous aerial drones, the team was able to navigate old workings and map them more accurately with drones that are able to independently navigate, visualize and record the whole space, even in the challenging environment.
The impetus was that we wanted to get more power out of the machine and wanted to pack the pallets cleaner and more dimensionally stable. The technology, the know-how and the service convinced us of Piab, after we looked at several manufacturers.
Bonding is becoming more and more a new alternative to welding, screwing or riveting. The reasons are simple: safety and economy. But to be able to guarantee this, a high-precision adhesive and sealant application is necessary.
This thought experiment shows why robot localization, the task of maintaining a location position as robots move around, and obstacle avoidance, is so critical to the success of all non-stationary robots.
The Smart Manufacturing Experience allows manufacturers to explore and get educated about emerging technologies such as additive manufacturing, automation & robotics, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
CEO Jeff Linnell brings an unorthodox approach to robotics. Part Cinematographer, part Creative Director and part self-taught Engineer, Jeff is a serial robotics entrepreneur and a thought leader.

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products. The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor. Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines. With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.
