Coval introduces a vacuum chamber for gripping protective masks

Coval's CVGM series mini vacuum chamber is designed to handle light and porous objects, such as protective masks, but also fabric or leather cut-outs.

Robots in the factory: bosses or slaves?

Industrial robots have long had a reputation problem. In fact, distrust in automation has led to slow adoption in some countries. Even in the US, the International Federation of Robotics' 2019 report found that adoption rates were 49 per cent below what was expected.

Advantages of Vacuum driven Soft Grips for Food Production

The main advantage of having lightweight EOAT is the ability to handle the objects while not adding much weight to the end of the robot arm. This enables using smaller robots/machines as all their power can be utilized to handle the food products.

New Robotic Grippers Transforming the Food Sector

While traditional robotics systems have successfully served the food sector for many years in palletizing (and some packaging) applications, it is only in recent years that it has become possible for robots to handle delicate food items directly.

Grasping Static Electricity for Revolutionary Robotics

Imagine if you could harness the same static cling to handle a material as fragile as an egg, as flimsy as soft fabric - or to assemble the uppers of Nike trainers at 20 times the pace of a human worker.

Robots Automate Machine Tools

To increase productivity in production, more and more companies are deciding to link and automate their machine tools. The right automation system is crucial here. Robots and the appropriate gripping technology play an important role here.

Case Study from Zimmer Group - Using an Assistant for Door Removal

Under the specifications of renowned German car manufacturers, EFS developed a demand-oriented, partially automated handling device for car door installation and removal based on an electrical system.

Grinding and Deburring in a Foundry - standard grippers from the Zimmer Group

A foundry, making different car suspension parts, was using a gripper with a dust cover to grind and deburr parts out of a press. They were having issues with the gripper and getting debris in the guideways and not being able to actuate the gripper.

Questions to Ask Before Selecting Your Air Gripper

The array of gripper choices in the automotive, pharmaceutical and electronics and industries for pick-and-place automation systems are numerous. The many gripper styles - all of which have their own size, method of operation, and level of human interaction - is daunting.

MODEX Q&A - Schmalz

On the Automation side of our business we've given more of our booth space to robotic end-of-arm tools demonstrating both industrial palletizing and collaborative applications, using our fast growing line of Cobot grippers and pumps. Booth #6319

A Guide to Self-Healing Robots

More flexible materials are necessary for safer collaborative work alongside humans and delicate tasks usually performed by humans, such as picking fruit and vegetables or performing minor surgeries.

Pick, Purchase and Program Your First Industrial Robot

Robots aren't always given a favorable representation in pop culture. In Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), homicidal supercomputer HAL 9000 demonstrates how a robot could conspire against its human colleagues.

FT-Produktion Boosts Output Capacity Without Adding Personnel by Employing Combination of Collaborative Robots and Robot Grippers

"We chose a combination of solutions from OnRobot, Universal Robots, and EasyRobotics because they are easy to program, and the investment will pay for itself in just nine months. It's one of the best business decisions we've ever made."

Study: A robot with a firm yet gentle grasp

UB engineers develop a dynamic gripper that mimics the adjustable grip of a human hand, an advancement that could improve industrial safety

Solve Loading Dock Challenges With Robotic Unloading

This Honeywell Intelligrated white paper examines the specific labor, operational and technological challenges on the loading docks of distribution centers (DCs), and introduces a new solution to help deliver the performance modern supply chains require.
