New Online Configurator from Festo Slashes OEM Engineering Costs and Speeds Delivery for Cartesian Robots
Armed with basic application information, an engineer can specify a single axis, 2D, or 3D Cartesian robot in minutes and have a CAD drawing at the end of the process. By 2017 assembled modules will arrive at the OEM within three weeks, about half the current delivery time.
We've recently invested in an additional 60,000 sq ft facility in order to build larger projects and offer increased capacity to our customers.
In the relentlessly changing world of technology, several important advances and trends have emerged that allow OEMs to transition to a soft control architecture that will not only move them away from dependence on FPGAs and DSPs, but also change the basis of competition in the equipment and machine tool industries.
From China to Germany, channel partners convene to discuss the future of collaborative robots in manufacturing
VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, today announced the acquisition of Radio Frequency Simulation Systems, Inc. (RFSS), which specializes in the design of high fidelity, wide band, high bit count digital RF memories (DRFM), Radar and IFF test systems, and electronic countermeasure (ECM) systems.
Klaus E. Meyer for Forbes: Midea, the Chinese household appliances (“white goods”) manufacturer just made what analysts called an ‘incredibly high’ bid for German robot maker Kuka. This acquisition would take the Chinese investor right to the heart of Industry 4.0 : Kuka is a leading manufacturer of multifunctional robots that represent an important building block for enterprises upgrading their factories with full automation, the latest human-machine interface functionality, and machine-to-machine communication. Midea want a 30% stake in Kuka and have offered €115 per share. Kuka’s shares traded at €84 the day before and had already increased 60% since the beginning of the year. This offer values Kuka at €4.6 billion, which means Midea’s 30% stake would be worth €1.4 billion – on par with Beijing Enterprise’s February 2016 takeover of recycling company EEW which was the largest Chinese acquisition of a German firm to-date. Midea’s takeover bid underscores Chinese interest in German Industry 4.0 technology; in January 2016, ChemChina paid €925 million for Munich-based KraussMaffei machine tools, in part because of their advances into Industry 4.0. Recent smaller Chinese acquisitions in the German machine tool industry, which include the partial acquisitions of H.Stoll by the ShangGong Group and of Manz by the Shanghai Electric Group are, in part, motivated by the objective to partake in the latest Industry 4.0 developments.

Factory Automation - Featured Product
Our fully autonomous intelligent vehicles will help you to transform the way you move materials and route your workflows. Increase throughput, eliminate material flow errors, improve traceability, maximize flexibility and allow your employees to focus on higher level tasks. Unlike traditional AGV's, our mobile robotics navigate using the natural features of your facility and do not require expensive facility modifications or guidance. Our AIV's can adapt to changes in their environment and work freely and safely with your staff. Our mobile robots are intelligent enough to quickly learn their environment and then automatically find the optimal path to where they need to go. They also automatically make adjust for dynamic environments and can work together in fleets of up to 100 robots.
