Booth #7532 - IPR will be exhibiting the IP-150, one of the many different rail types that IPR offers to its customers. The work radius of IPR's 7th axes rails is easy to describe: endless.
Booth #8520 - In the OCTOPUZ booth, visitors will be able to see a Motoman MH5L performing a weld tracing operation on an automotive rim as well as a KUKA KR6 R700 deburring a helmet both programmed and simulated within OCTOPUZ.
Emerging Companies with Range of Offerings from Augmented Reality Headsets to Intelligent Robotic Software to Soft Robot Hands and Wireless Charging for Drones
Record Number of Robots Shipped in North America in 2018, with More Non-Automotive Installed Than Ever Before
Robotic Industries Association (RIA) stats show continued growth in food & consumer goods, plastics & rubber, life sciences and other sectors, while sales to automotive customers slow
What's really encouraging is the expanded use by small and medium sized companies who are just beginning to automate as a result of their interest in using automation to become stronger global competitors.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
