ABB's Robotics business unit recently sought a more user-friendly tool to develop high-fidelity manipulator models that can be integrated with other software tools for simulation. Using MapleSim, engineers eliminated the need to derive and manipulate equations.
Hypertherm expands robotic capabilities with purchase of Jabez Technologies, creators of Robotmaster Software
Jabez Technologies, creators of software to simplify complex robotic programming, is joining Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of plasma, waterjet, and laser cutting systems, to make it easier for companies to utilize robots for manufacturing applications.
unicam, one of Germany's leading CAD/CAM solutions providers, has teamed up with In-House Solutions to offer OCTOPUZ offline robot programming software to customers in Europe. The company has been working in the field of CAD/CAM robotics since 2009, and is excited to demonstrate how OCTOPUZ can benefit their clients. To best highlight the benefits of incorporating the innovative software into a manufacturing environment, unicam constructed a robot demonstration cell that provides an up close and personal look at its many attributes.
President, Chahe Bakmazjian, discusses the emergence of robots and how Robotmaster enables manufacturers within the aerospace industry seeking to automate their manufacturing processes.

Companies are making human-like robots and they think they've stumbled on the biggest thing since the iPhone
Cadie Thompson for Business Insider: Downloading apps on your own personal robot may become as common as downloading apps on your smartphone. Robot makers Jibo and Blue Frog Robotics are creating social robots that are aimed at living with humans and in order to entice consumers they are selling them for about the same cost as an iPhone. Jibo’s robot called Jibo is priced at about $749 for pre-order and Blue Frog Robotics’ robot called Buddy is priced at $549. But these companies are also promising consumers that these little live-in robots are going to become the biggest platform since Apple’s iPhone, capable of performing all kinds of functions via apps. “It’s like the iPhone, if we want to reach the mainstream and have success we need many very interesting apps,” said Frack de Visme, the chief financial officer of Blue Frog Robotics. “We are going to have an open system so many developers can develop and create amazing apps so that it become mainstream.” Cont'd...
