In a recent project for Mercedes-Benz (Daimler AG) RobCo S.W.A.T. used RoboDK software to simulate ABB and Motoman robots working on a range of automotive manufacturing tasks including assembly and painting.
A foundry, making different car suspension parts, was using a gripper with a dust cover to grind and deburr parts out of a press. They were having issues with the gripper and getting debris in the guideways and not being able to actuate the gripper.
Universal Robots Launches ActiNav, the World's First Autonomous Bin Picking Kit for Machine Tending Applications
ActiNav synchronously handles vision processing, collision-free motion planning and autonomous real-time robot control, eliminating the complexity and risk usually associated with bin picking applications.
At the Institute for Intelligent Process Automation and Robotics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Robot Learning Group (ROLE) focuses on various aspects of machine learning. The scientists are investigating how robots can learn to solve tasks by trying them out independently.
Alternatives to hard components hold potential for applications from surgery to space exploration
LinePar explores the integration of sophisticated robotic systems equipped with newer iterations like collaborative robots, AGVs, robotic vision, exoskeletons, etc., that are radically changing the ways of automotive manufacturing.
Rapid proliferation of industry 4.0 technologies is likely to drive SCADA market. The market is expected to witness a robust growth rate on account of increasing adoption of automation technologies by manufacturing, utility, and oil & gas industries.
Innovative manufacturers should strategically embed three classes of automated systems into their production processes: industrial robots, autonomous robots, and co-bots. These precision tools will allow higher control of processes and thus lead to higher product quality.
The concept of full automation could be daunting, especially considering the cost, time and disruption that go into building a brand new factory or warehouse - this just isn't a viable option for a large proportion of businesses.
According to one McKinsey study, the market for industrial robotics has increased by double digits each year since 2012, and will continue this growth at least through 2021.
Automation Technology Expo (ATX) West and Design & Manufacturing (D&M) Pacific to Showcase Latest Innovations Highlighting the Future of Factory 4.0
ATX West will primarily feature the latest in automation and robotic technology including robotic accessories, motion control, and automation software,
Results from the Global Robotics Report 2019 identified that 79 per cent of automation distributors do not believe their customers understand the safety requirements of installing a collaborative robot.
Robotic End of Arm Tools (EOAT) Market Size will Grow at a Lucrative CAGR of 10% by 2028, Fact.MR Study
A recent research study by Fact.MR estimates global sales of robotic end of arm tools (EOAT) to surpass US$ 2,000 Mn in 2019, up from US$ 1, 900.3 Mn in 2018. This growth in sales can be attributed to the ever-evolving demand of industrial ecosystems for high productivity.
Over the period of time we have strived to upgrade technologies in order to make our lifestyle more comfortable. We have introduced automation and robotics in order to reduce the manual labor required in manufacturing and production industries.
Today cobots represent the fastest growing segment of industrial robotics. Here Sophie Hand traces a brief history of collaborative robots and looks into the most promising future developments in the industry.
