Booth #4481 (co-exhibiting with Futura Automation) - Gecko Gripper, that uses millions of micro-scaled fibrillar stalks that adhere to a surface using powerful van der Waals forces - the same way that geckos climb.
There is an increasing demand for collaborative robots that can work autonomously and adapt to changing production conditions. This requires reliable sensors that detect human presence and can overcome future challenges with the development of collaborative technologies.
Booth #4311 - The single-arm YuMi provides manufacturers of all sizes added flexibility and scalability to meet the challenges of high-mix, low-volume production in shorter cycles.
Because of the very complex nature of automotive manufacturing AGV vehicles on the plant floor must feature a wide range of standard modules that are configurable to meet automotive customers' automation needs.
Booth #4411 - We are showcasing our newest Manual Tool Changer, Force/Torque Sensor, and Universal Compliance Compensator models in a live robotic demonstration! These solutions are ideal for use in collaborative robot applications.
Booth #4220 - We will be showing our HRC-03 grippers for collaborative robotic applications, also our new aluminum guided variant of our very successful 5000 series grippers.
Booth #703 - Cobot Pump, NEW vacuum generator that does not need compressed air, Cobot Gripper, employee and environment safe collaborative gripper and more
The profitable companies of the future will be those that can adapt to the change in sourcing, production and distribution that are happening today, and are flexible enough to take advantage of new technologies.
Though often overlooked, grippers are a significant cog in a successful automation system and choosing the proper one can result in optimized performance, uptime and operator safety.
This technology has the potential to minimise those risks by performing a key part of the operation with accuracy which cannot be achieved by a human hand.
RPA or systems that are augmented with a form of automation - even software based - will completely transform the world of business as we know it. They have a place in nearly every industry in existence and can help improve output and efficiency ...
Start-ups must consider regulatory regulations from the start of design, which rarely happens. A wonderful product doesn't sell very well if many companies will not purchase because they to not meet applicable safety regulations.
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.
Efforts are also being made to use robots in ways that prevent injuries caused by lifting heavy things. Here are some fascinating developments that set the tone for what people can soon expect.
In 2019 we'll see many incremental changes in robotics technology and business models that will keep us moving steadily forward. Some predictions will prove correct, while new and surprising developments will exceed our wildest dreams.

ATI Industrial Automation's MC-10 Manual Tool Changer provides a cost-effective solution for quickly changing tools by hand. Its compact yet robust design is optimized for collaborative robot applications. The ergonomic twist-collar locking mechanism ensures a secure attachment of the tool and easy manual operation with tactile feedback. This Manual Tool Changer can carry payloads of up to 22 lbs and includes multiple fail-safe features that resist vibration and prevent loosening. The MC-10 Manual Tool Changer has integrated air pass-through connections and options to connect electrical utilities if needed. ATI will feature the new MC-10 along with a variety of other robotic demonstrations and product displays at this year's IMTS show in Chicago (Booth #236417).
