Motor Commutation: FOC vs. FEC

There are many commutation schemes, many of which have hardware implications. Right now, we'll take a look at Field Oriented Control (a well-established method of commutation) and Field Estimated Control (IQ's new method of commutation).

Growth in the Automation of Distribution and Fulfillment Industry

Many production areas are already extremely short on space, so having a design that allows for streamlined goods-to-person capability is a game-changer. These benefits are combined with our best-in-class energy consumption.

Sustainable Supply Chains in the Era of Industry 4.0

Because supply chains consume resources on a large scale, they are responsible for a disproportionately large share of the world's carbon emissions.

AGV Robotization: The Solution

Businesses which have invested in robotics quickly realize the impact of increased productivity and continue investing. There is no "turn back syndrome" for these solutions; the increases in competitiveness and quality push businesses to adopt a continuous robotics policy.

Edge Roller Technology (ERT®250) Conveyor

The system uses rollers to move pallets smoothly, without friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming.

Case Study: A Coffee with the Robot

A company from Baden (region in Germany) claims to revolutionize the coffee-to-go gastronomy with its robotic coffee solution. With its gripper for handling coffee cups, the Zimmer Group is making an important contribution to this.

Picking the Unknown - Robust and Flexible Robotic Automation in Logistics

With more than 70% of labor in warehousing being dedicated to picking and packing, numerous companies are gradually investing in logistics automation. But what happens when the robots must handle an unlimited number of (unknown) stock keeping units?

The Fourth Healthcare Revolution - Digital Technologies Are Driving a New Frontier in Medical Treatment

Healthcare has a long way to go before it reaches the level of digitalisation the manufacturing industry possesses. However, this slower pace doesn't mean digitalisation isn't already beginning to show its benefits in the medical sector.

You're Never Too Small for Industrial Robots

There's a misconception that industrial robots are reserved for manufacturing giants. But, according to the Robotics Industries Association (RIA), more enterprises with fewer than 100 employees now own up to ten robots - and this is a growing trend.

Envisioning the 6G Future

If we're learning anything from 5G implementations, it's that the demand for connectivity is increasing at an exponential rate as wireless communication is becoming more and more essential to our daily lives.

Bringing Handling Technology to Life

In the "KUKoMo" project, new robot solutions for collaborative assembly activities in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were tested for their feasibility and transferred to demonstrator solutions for cross-industry applications.

AI-powered SORT systems in E-Commerce Fulfillment

With AI-powered SORT systems, robots do the mundane, repetitive tasks, successfully piece-picking customer orders into completion. Thus, our customers can redeploy employees in more suitable roles throughout the supply chain.

Precision Motion Control Enables Automation

When digital information transforms into precise physical motion, previously infeasible use cases suddenly become possible. This improvement delivered Industry 4.0 to applications such as advanced robotics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT),.

6 Ways to Use a Bottomless Conveyor

Bottomless conveyors, also called side-gripping conveyors, provide a simple solution for accessing the underside of a product for a range of applications. These applications include inspection, printing, labeling and edge sealing.

Next-Generation Mobile Robots Fleet Management

By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.

 IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
