The GPU is constantly evolving, and not just for gaming or 3D graphics for product design, but it is increasingly be tasked with supporting machine learning and AI inference analysis through its parallel processing with the ability of simultaneous multiple computations.
Like any mechanism, robots can shed particles from belts, gasses from hoses and dust particles from the movement of the end effectors. It is this particle disbursement that can be the critical issue for clean room robotics.
The so-called 'no code' revolution in programming seeks to make the automation industry more autonomous and to democratize the use of robotics at the shop floor level.
How an integrated hardware and software approach can simplify the development and deployment of robotics applications
Heavy washdown and harsh chemical solutions used to clean robots in FDA and USDA sanitary environments for food processing can impact the robot finish, as well as leave condensation on robotic machinery that could potentially reach food products being handled.
Modern transportation wouldn't be the same without robots, and the future will only serve to solidify this. Here's how robots are pushing the transportation industry forward and where they could go from here.
Automated packaging solutions can streamline almost any business's operations, providing a potential competitive edge and benefits like reduced waste or lower labor needs.
Up until now, users in the metal and plastics processing industries often faced a difficult choice: with CNC lathes and milling machines, one opted either for the largest possible variance or for large volumes, i.e., high quantities.
Most robots use servo motors to move their joints, calling for rotary or angle encoders. As speeds increase, so do the control dynamics the motors require, sometimes making vibration mitigation just as important accuracy and resolution.
If automation was as simple as getting a loan, buying the system, and making more money, every business in the country would be automated. Unfortunately, there are some large roadblocks standing between small businesses and complete optimization of their production lines.
In May 2021, Ford opened the doors of its new Robotics Building as part of the University of Michigan. This massive structure is four stories tall and covers 134,000 square feet.
Currently, there are several tactile sensors used in cobots, including piezoelectric, piezoresistive, capacitive and elastoresistivity types. Piezoelectric technologies are used for gathering data from the cobot's joints and transmitting it to the controller
Automation and robotics create such a dynamic industrial ecosystem that it will continue to adapt to increased demand for consumer products. We'll see more artificial intelligence being deployed and utilized.
When HP set out to develop this technology, the aim was to push beyond prototyping and enable repeatable, higher volume additive manufacturing. We can do this by combining a powder bed fusion approach with HP's Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology.
Choosing the right automation partners led Greene Tweed to quickly develop, integrate and install a more flexible automated material removal cell.

Designed for assembly and inspection applications in the electronics equipment and automobile components industries, the THE600 SCARA is a powerful automation tool. Advancing from the specifications of the existing THE400 SCARA, the THE600 has been developed to meet growing demand for fast-cycle automation. The THE600 model includes improvements in synchronised control and tracking precision. The THE600 is compact in design and offers improved high speed, with 60 per cent higher payload capacity than competing SCARA models in the same price range, making it the price-to-performance leader. Affordable price, impressive performance.
