Industry 4.0 represents a giant leap in the evolution of machines - an evolution that has already pioneered leaps in productivity and quality of life over several hundred years. Today, our machines are connected with each other, their physical environments, and to people
Autonomous mobile robots are a simple, efficient and cost-effective way to automate material handling and in-house transportation tasks in nearly any situation where employees would previously have been required to push carts around the facility.
This brief coverage of some of the emerging uses of servo motors and drives emphasizes the improvements made possible as these components become increasingly advanced. Such progress should continue over the foreseeable future...
Reinforcing both companies' pioneering roles in collaborative robotics, Universal Robots welcomes more than 20 Rethink staff members, incorporating valuable expertise in engineering, product development, and customer applications.
I believe that systems will receive high-level strategic goals ("Build one car according to the following specification: ...") and will be autonomous in the way of how they achieve these goals, together with people
Similar to UPC, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has had delayed acceptance in the industry. Patented in 1983, initial RFID research completed in Los Alamos during the 1970's has seen limited acceptance.
Industrial inspections, regardless of the reason for inspection, can be a very dirty and dangerous job. While not necessarily dull, industrial inspections definitely cover two of the three Ds of robotics deployment (dull, dirty, and dangerous).
Milestone investment will combine connected digital technologies, state-of-the-art collaborative robotics and cutting-edge artificial intelligence research to create the most sophisticated, automated and flexible Factory of the Future.
FABTECH takes place in Atlanta, GA November 6th - 8th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Booth #C13174 - The OCTOPUZ team will walk through the entire programming process from importing the CAD geometry of the part to posting the code and running it on a robot.
LM Industries' low speed, electric and autonomous vehicle, Olli, uses carbon fiber-reinforced polymer thermoplastics in its 3D printing process. Additionally, Olli's chassis is nearly 90 percent 3D-printed
Not only are KUKA products integrated into the SmartProduction environment, but all active components of the cell are integrated as well. The data is collected in the KUKA Connectivity Box, then forwarded to the cloud.
Torque ripple must be defined as a function of output load and speed. For load specification the most sensible rating point is the continuous duty thermal torque rating for the servo motor.
We are on a mission to enable robots to manipulate the widest range of everyday items. Consumer expectations for on-demand retail options are fueling the change in mix toward pieces, or items.
Bringing together 2,500 exhibitors and 50,000 attendees across 1.25 million net square feet of McCormick Place exhibit space, no event in the world this year is poised to offer targeted solutions to meet this increasing demand like PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Pack

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction. Standardized use of stain
