Georgia Institute of Technology Awarded Prize Package Worth Over $150K In Inaugural Contest Hosted at IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)
There is much more to consider than just the design and the motor selection. Interdisciplinary thinking, specific engineering knowledge, depth of experience, and a clear understanding of the requirements are critical factors.
This article will look at the top-end solution in terms of accuracy and repeatability, and the applications that benefit from a motion control solution that has achieved quantum-sized improvements in the precision achievable across numerous applications.
Before selecting a picking technique for your operation, evaluate your current inventory situation, workforce, technology, infrastructure and warehouse layout. Once you assess all of these factors, you can confidently determine a picking methodology
SCARA robots offer a better precision at a very low operational cost. This has led to a greater adoption of SCARA robots in the automotive industry, thereby propelling the global SCARA robots market.
What if you need to be an expert by the time you graduate from school simply because autonomous machines and automation have taken over work that is predictable and regular?
With ATI Deburring Tools, Concept Systems developed a robotic material removal solution for their customer that enables them to produce higher quality parts in less time. The solution reduces scrap and rework, and alleviates safety concerns associated with hand-grinding...

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
