What Are Robots Doing at Schools?

With the help of telepresence robots, teachers can teach a lesson from anywhere. The robots are in classrooms. Their cameras and sensors are the eyes and ears of the teacher.

The FIRST Robotics Competition

FIRST Robotics Competition is the definitive sport for the mind, where high-school students participant in building and programming industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against robotic competitors.

Universal Robots Solves Production Challenges in Creating Revolutions' Assembly Line

The UR3 was integrated in the assembly line by Hirebotics, a Universal Robots Certified System Integrator that basically works like a staffing agency for cobots, letting startups like Creating Revolutions rent cobots by the hour without any upfront capital.

Preparing Students for the New Industry Standard

Offline Robot Programming is a technology that is quickly being implemented in manufacturing facilities all over the globe. This implementation results in an increase in efficiency, time and cost savings, and results in less down time.

Slotless Brushless Servo Motors Improve Machine Performance.

From the outside it looks just like any other industrial brushless servo motor but inside it utilized advanced manufacturing techniques to provide higher torque, higher speed, smoother operation, higher efficiency, and better inertial matching in a smaller package.

The use of Inertial Sensors in Robotics

The primary uses for inertial sensors are platform stability and global positioning, but we are seeing increasing use as feedback in articulated limbs.

Can You Complete Your Project Without A Conveyor? The Pros and Cons

Let's explore some common misconceptions about conveyors, as well as some pros and cons of conveyor alternatives.

7 Reasons Your Life Depends on an Accurate IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) in a Self-Driving Car

An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a device that directly measures the three linear acceleration components and the three rotational rate components (6-DOF) of a vehicle.

Added Value From an Ejector With Integrated Controls in a Suction Cup Handling System

Important functions provided on an ejector, and in particular all-in-one ejector, can be summarized in three major categories.

This Robot Has Soft Hands. It Could Be the Future of Sustainable Production

Traditional robots have been designed to perform a single task extremely efficiently. But when the item or the task changes, which is often the case with food, these traditional machines need to be reintegrated and reprogrammed

Are You Still Manually Programming Your Robot? Why Not Fully Automate!

Focus Auto Design Inc. originally purchased a used robot two years ago to make the jump into automating their business. However, they were manually programming this robot which took time and resources that held their business back from its optimal performance.

How Can Robotic Automation Help Alleviate Labor Shortages?

In the past evaluating automation was typically about the Return On Investment (ROI), but more and more companies are considering automation because they are not able to staff their current manual operations.

The Top Ten Autonomous Delivery Solutions of 2018

The high-costs and inefficiency of last-mile delivery make it prime real estate for automation, with the autonomous delivery market looking poised for exponential growth in the coming years.

Using FPGA Supercomputers to Build a High Precision Robot

We solve the motion platform problem with a combination of innovative techniques. These include: an extremely accurate sensor system, high speed computing, optimized power to weight ratio, and 3D printed parts.

Ultra-Short Pulse Lasers Are Great Tools for Processing Plastics for Medical Devices

In the past few years, we have found that ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers are being used more and more for medical device manufacturing - from stents and catheters, to wire stripping and balloon texturing.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with  Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
