How to Select the Best Motor for a Jointed Arm Robot

There is a seemingly endless selection of DC, stepper, and servo motor products on the market, each with their own advantages and drawbacks. Going into the selection process having answered a few key questions will vastly simplify the selection process.

Artificial Intelligence, Robotics & Ethics

Like transformative technologies that came before, the ethics of AI is coming under increased scrutiny, giving birth to regulations and policies constraining the scope of its application.

Robot-Ready Conveying Optimizes Pick-and-Place

From a machine builder's point of view, robots can solve many processing and packaging line problems, but the chosen material handling systems supplying the line can reduce the robot's performance.

10 Things to Consider When Exploring Offline Robot Programming Software Solutions

Offline Robot Programming (OLP) takes the programming "offline" - away from the teach pendent / robot cell - allowing the user to generate the robotic code from their computer without having to take the robot out of production to generate it.

The Mini Series Takes a Taxi

In the Adaptive Machine Platform Prolynk, manufacturing machinery and assembly stations can be configured and combined with total flexibility. The parts move individually from station to station, in a mini-taxi so to speak.

How a Team United in Just 18 Months to Overhaul How America Destroys Its Most Dangerous Chemical Weapons

CRG Automation and its team of engineers - with specialties such as mechanical, electrical and controls -began devising custom engineered solutions, often incorporating advanced robotics.

Calculating the ROI of Offline Robot Programming Software

Capital investments in advanced manufacturing environments require careful consideration, especially if that investment is for a new process or technology. If you are looking at investing in OLP here are some things to consider about the potential return on investment (ROI).

How to Find the Right Damper for Your Application

Industrial Dampers cushion vibrations in machines. In order to fulfill this task perfectly, there are a large number of different types. To find the right variant for your own application, the load cases should be examined in detail.

Important Considerations When Implementing AMR Solutions

When implementing mobile robotics solutions in a facility, it's important to consider strategies for ensuring stability, seamless interaction with people, accurate detection of obstacles, and set up a successful emergency evacuation plan.

Blazing the Trail for Flying Robots

As part of a focus project at ETH Zurich, eight Bachelor students built a flying manipulator that can hover in any orientation and grasp objects. The drone is more maneuverable than a quadrocopter and has been designed with the aim of pushing aerial robotics to new heights.

Is your OLRP Implementation Process SMART?

For any Offline Robot Programming solution to be effective, the virtual robot cell set up in the software must be identical to the existing physical robot cell. OCTOPUZ refers to this process as "implementation".

Digital Transformation and the Smart Factory

The Smart Factory at Wichita (TSF@W) provides a risk-free environment for companies to explore the art of the possible and gain insight into the latest technologies through an immersive, hands-on experience.

Robust Drive System Simplifies Mobile Robot Development for the Factory of the Future

Another issue is the inability of some AGVs and AMRs to drive smoothly while operating slowly, an important consideration for scenarios where the AGV or AMR itself may perform part or component assembly.

Understanding Human-machine Interfaces (HMIS)

An HMI could be used to replace physical inputs (such as buttons or switches) with virtual buttons on a user interface (UI). This can offer greater functionality and flexibility than a fixed control panel.

The Latest Evolution of High-Performance Laser-Guided Vehicles Streamlines Pallet Movement in Deep-Freeze Warehouses

Technology advances in automated deep-freeze distribution have provided advantages for increased throughput, system uptime and a better ROI. Laser-guided vehicles, playing a pivotal role in this sub-zero technological evolution, have recently taken a quantum leap forward.
