If the packaging sector hadn't been an early adopter of automation, it would have struggled through the pandemic. That's not to say that the situation has been easy, but it could've been much worse without robotics.
Automation technology installed right out of the box is not an immediate path to increased profits - successful integration is key. This article explores the main principles that align the integration of robotic automation and success.
Live events premiere September 14; hosted "coffee chat" previews of IMTS spark scheduled for Sept. 8 and Sept. 9
Year-to-Date Numbers Show Decline in Robotics (18%), Machine Vision (8%), and Motion Control (6%) Orders Compared to 2019
Bright Spot: leading economic forecaster provides optimist outlook for overall economy moving into 2021
What will the laboratory of the future look like, especially when dealing with post-COVID realities? Given the current situation of working during a pandemic, we really do need to be innovative in our how we design labs today for use tomorrow.
The applications to patent an interlocking food container easily grasped by robots and another for "devices and methods for attracting enhanced attention" were filed by the Artificial Inventor Project, naming DABUS as the inventor.
Now that AI is on the scene, industry and commerce are on the verge of perhaps the greatest rush into automation ever, and the questions have turned philosophical. What will change in the day-to-day way that work gets done, and what will be required of tomorrow's workers?
JPL needed an automated system for collecting and handling space material as well as moving it through the indexing process. Engineers developed the Adaptive Caching Assembly, an application that resembles a pick and place operation commonly found on a factory floor.
As contact becomes more dangerous, and people pivot to working from home, robots have emerged as a powerful tool for businesses and organizations wanting to keep everyone safe.
The use of cobots is on the rise and their use is encouraged to stay safe during the pandemic, as some businesses were severely affected due to the social-distancing orders. The collaborative robot market is experiencing an exponential growth.
Spanning a planned area of 3,000 acres (2 million square metres), it has five cutting-edge workshops including stamping, welding, painting, final assembly, and battery pack production.
IMTS to continue to offer digital experiences to foster connections, networking and technical learning opportunities.
COVID-19 To Reduce 2020 Industrial Robot Revenue By >8%, Followed By A Rapid Growth To Return From 2021
After a weak 2019, we originally expected the 2020 robot market to recover strongly, but COVID-19 changed the market revenue growth forecast from 4.8% to -3.6%. In the long run, the pandemic will accelerate existing trends for industrial automation
ABB assists Boyce to repurpose their advanced manufacturing facility, enabling them to make 3,000 ventilators in record time for New York hospitals.
Manufacturing the Hand-Held in a plastic injection molding process makes it possible to offer a more stable and cost-effective alternative to 3D printing. Installing it is fast and very easy and it is compatible with most commercially available door handles (Ø 18 - 22 mm).

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
OCTOPUZ makes complex robot programming simple through cutting-edge Offline Robot Programming Software (OLRP) that enables detailed robot operations, complete with machinery and manufacturing components, to be first simulated on a computer, then output for the real world. Within this virtual cell, OCTOPUZ uses built-in machine logic to identify the optimal toolpath trajectory and program the required code for a multitude of industrial tasks. The code is then output for the specific robot brand, for use in the real world.
