This year, we're demonstrating new robotic palletizing and depalletizing solutions, now available with advanced diagnostics and predictive failure capabilities to improve throughput rates and uptime of mission-critical production operations. Booth #C-3136.
Piab is proud to introduce to Pack Expo the new soft gripping tool piSOFTGRIP®, developed especially with food industry automation in mind. The vacuum-based soft gripper will grip sensitive and lightweight objects of odd geometries and/or an unusual surface. Booth #C-4736
While the popular view of robots may be car assembly, in fact, 90 percent of manufacturing today is not automated and takes place in small and medium size companies.
The good news is that space-based exploration, travel and research are all ramping up not just at renowned organizations like NASA, but also at privatized operations such as Space-X and Made In Space.
The challenge is that traditional robots have been designed to perform a single task extremely efficiently. But when the item or the task changes these traditional machines need to be reintegrated and reprogrammed.

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
