Manufacturers have the choice of robotic grippers, depending on the handling application and the type of material that is being used. There are four basic types of robotic grippers: vacuum grippers, pneumatic grippers, hydraulic grippers and servo-electric grippers.
Machines should be built out of the most appropriate hardware for each particular purpose. And that's where modular robots deliver a big advantage. In modular robotics you just choose the best hardware including the H-ROS technology and built the robot.
When faced with a multi-axis alignment and positioning application, motion engineers typically assemble a system from a stack of individual linear and rotary stages. This approach works well for applications when only a few degrees of freedom are involved (e.g. XYZ).
The customer required precision rotary axis control in the lowest profile form factor for multiple sequential robot arm joints. Key additional requirements included minimal movement at start-up to report absolute position...
Learning without programming means anyone can teach OB7 to do hundreds of complex automation jobs quickly. The operator simply shows OB7 how to do the job by physically moving the cobot through the steps, and it learns and remembers.
The cost and risks for small to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) to train employees as well as implement and deploy robots for immediate impact is still too high.
Steven Wyatt, IFR Vice President, presented an outlook by regions, markets and key challenges at the AUTOMATE 2019 in Chicago.
Cobots are safer than ever, but care must still be taken during implementation. These 4 steps will help.
Automate & ProMat 2019 took place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL April 8th - 11th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
The annual STEM-focused week kicks off April 6, 2019 with more than 300 events across all 50 states
Booth #7154 - Our booth features four different application clusters for machine tending, packaging, assembly and processing. We chose to focus on these applications as they are currently experiencing a significant demand for cobot automation.
Booth #6773 - This year's show will be an importing stepping stone into our next chapter as we rapidly expand our distributor network and market traction.
Booth #7340 - We will be featuring our NEW RS007N/L general purpose robots as part of a deburring and high speed packing application. These compact robots feature the highest operating speed in their class and an increased work envelope ...
Booth: #N-7515 - Anyone interested in viewing a fully autonomous mobile robotic unloading solution for randomly stacked products should stop by to see this system in action. A vision-guided system with two robotic manipulators operating on top of a mobile platform.
Booth #8157 - LMI will have five demos on display covering complete 3D inline inspection, wide field of view measurement, robotic integration and snapshot sensor solutions.
