The China-based robotic startup is raising funds for the Dobot M1 arm -- which is targeted at small businesses, desktop developers, educators and makers -- following last year's successful Kickstarter campaign for the original Dobot. The M1 prototype has since been tested by leading manufacturers such as Apple, Bose and Chow Tai Fook.

A-Tech will offer full line of Cartesian, 6-Axis and SCARA robot systems for automation and materials handling needs in a variety of industries
Science Daily: Throw a baseball, and you might say it's all in the wrist. For robots, it's all in the gears. Gears are essential for precision robotics. They allow limbs to turn smoothly and stop on command; low-quality gears cause limbs to jerk or shake. If you're designing a robot to scoop samples or grip a ledge, the kind of gears you'll need won't come from a hardware store. At NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, technologist Douglas Hofmann and his collaborators are building a better gear. Hofmann is the lead author of two recent papers on gears made from bulk metallic glass (BMG), a specially crafted alloy with properties that make it ideal for robotics. Cont'd...
FANUC Robotics Integrator Remtec Automation Announces Growth in Automated Robotic Material Handling Projects

Tolomatic's new electric linear rod actuator is more efficient, accurate and flexible compared to hydraulic cylinders--and without the messy leaks or noisy operation of hydraulics.
MAC Formula Electric represents McMaster University at Formula Student. Their goal is to compete and place in the top 10 on the world stage. OCTOPUZ is proud to be an official sponsor and wish Jackson and his team continued success on their journey to race in Europe!
Neugart USA introduces its new compact right-angle, flange-mounted WPLFE gearbox for applications with tight space constraints and powerful torque requirements.
On October 10, 2016, the Commercial Court of Rennes acknowledged that Mr. Quibel and Robot Access Services engaged in passing off and unfair competition against RobotShop by operating robotshop35.com
The University of Manchester, the largest single-site university in the UK, has a reputation for producing some of the world's greatest engineering and mathematical minds. Twenty-five Nobel Prize winners have either worked or studied at the University.
Phys.org: On the wall of Aaron Dollar's office is a poster for R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), the 1920 Czech play that gave us the word "robot." The story ends with the nominal robots seizing control of the factory of their origin and then wiping out nearly all of humanity. Dollar, fortunately, has something more cheerful in mind for the future of human-robot relations. He sees them as helpers in our daily lives—performing tasks like setting the table or assisting with the assembly of your new bookcase. But getting to the point where robots can work in the unstructured environment of our homes (as opposed to industrial settings) would take a major technological leap and a massive coordination of efforts from roboticists around the globe. The living room has been called the last frontier for robots—but first, the robotics community needs some standards that everyone can agree on. Enter a suitcase-sized box containing 77 objects. It contains things like hammers, a cordless drill, a can of Spam and a nine-hole peg test. As ordinary as they may seem, these carefully curated household items could be the future of a new kind of standardization for robotics. Known as the Yale-CMU-Berkeley (YCB) Object and Model Set, the intent is to provide universal benchmarks for labs specializing in robotic manipulation and prosthetics around the world. Cont'd...
Throwing a perfect strike in virtual bowling doesn't require your gaming system to precisely track the position and orientation of your swinging arm. But if you're operating a robotic forklift around a factory, manipulating a mechanical arm on an assembly line or guiding a remote-controlled laser scalpel inside a patient, the ability to pinpoint exactly where it is in three-dimensional (3-D) space is critical.
Collaborative robots market is expected to grow during the forecast period. The rising need for collaborative robots in automation industry is acting as a driver for this market and is expected to serve as a market opportunity for future growth.
Cutting-edge technologies, expert perspectives and large industry attendance define North America's premier manufacturing tradeshow and conference
Vancouver, Washington - November 22, 2016 - US Digital, a US manufacturer of quality motion control since 1980, today announced the addition of 400 and 500 cycles per revolution (CPR) resolutions to its existing E4T line of miniature optical encoders. Specifically designed for robotics, medical and other industrial automation applications, the new E4Ts deliver position and velocity feedback, while fitting National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) motors as small as size eight.
