Box opening robots, while on a smaller scale, can eliminate the need for workers to handle blades. Unfortunately, box opening robots are not as common as the more traditional six-axis or SCARA robot models.
Local manufacturers don't want to run 1-2 parts because it interrupts their workflow. They would much rather get an order for 1,000 pieces than have to stop, load material for your job, setup the machine, cut it, ship it etc.
RoboBusiness is the robotics industry's leading event, meeting the needs of the robotics industry, which includes robotic technology developers, component providers, robotic system manufacturers, robotic design engineers, and supply chain organizations.
While the robots use sensors and algorithms to safely navigate even dynamic environments, they aren't able to apply this sensory input for advanced decision-making.
Robotic sight and machine vision systems can help our automata pick up on visual cues that we humans would probably miss or ignore, and they can deliver considerable value to companies that adopt them. Here's a look at where the technology has been and where it's headed.
Traditionally, robots have been purchased as capital equipment and used to automate a part of the workflow. Recently, companies have been exploring the idea of hiring robot workers similar to the way people are hired: as contractors.
While many Baby Boomers pursued trade or vocational jobs, Millennials and Gen Xers were encouraged to attend college and apply for white-collar jobs.
If robots are to solve the labor shortage in US manufacturing, then they will need to significantly expand the type of tasks that they can carry out.
What are the differences between these two CNC and robotics systems? What are their characteristics and how do you determine which one is best suited to the needs of your industry?
A threat to jobs, a health and safety risk and a technological nightmare. Despite these common protests against robotic technology, demand is growing, creating a new challenge for robot component suppliers.
ISO 15066 is the emerging standard for collaborative robotics and covers all aspects of robot safety. The ISO15066 definition of a collaborative workspace is the operating space where the robot system and a human can perform tasks concurrently.
Harmonic Drive is well-known for our zero-backlash strain wave gear products. Many machine designers and builders don't realize that we also manufacture Planetary gears. Booth #LS6068
We are developing a general purpose, robotic control software platform that allows the user to use semantic commands, in a simulated VR environment.
Three-quarters of total robot sales are currently attributed to just five countries - China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, the United States and Germany.
Whether you're looking to maximize shelf impact, create a more e-commerce friendly package, increase sustainability, functionality or achieve other product differentiations, you'll find the packaging solutions you want at PACK Expo.
