KINGSTAR Launches Open, "Plug-and-Play" Software Platform for Real-Time, PC-Based Industrial Motion Control and Machine Vision
KINGSTAR 2.5 eliminates the need for proprietary, point, and/or hardware solutions for industrial automation motion control and machine vision. Through pre-tested, pre-integrated, and best-of-breed software components, the KINGSTAR platform reduces cost by up to half while delivering superior performance and quality
Successful workforce development and sustainable economic growth depend on close alignment of STEM education, certification and training with the needs and expertise of industry leaders. Organizations must provide the right products, technology and education to fill the gap between what the industry wants and what educational institutions can provide. Yaskawa Motoman is addressing these critical needs with innovative products, curricula, training certification and services for education and industry.
The eTOP4FOOD has been designed and proven to solve the industry wide problem of HMI failures and less effective alternative HMI cleaning procedures. With the eTOP4FOOD no longer is the HMI required to be shielded from high temperature, high pressure cleaning.

Bernard Marr for Forbes: First came steam and water power; then electricity and assembly lines; then computerization… So what comes next? Some call it the fourth industrial revolution, or industry 4.0, but whatever you call it, it represents the combination of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, and the Internet of Systems. In short, it is the idea of smart factories in which machines are augmented with web connectivity and connected to a system that can visualize the entire production chain and make decisions on its own. And it’s well on its way and will change most of our jobs. Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, has published a book entitled The Fourth Industrial Revolution in which he describes how this fourth revolution is fundamentally different from the previous three, which were characterized mainly by advances in technology. In this fourth revolution, we are facing a range of new technologies that combine the physical, digital and biological worlds. These new technologies will impact all disciplines, economies and industries, and even challenge our ideas about what it means to be human. Cont'd...
Machine vision as a key technology for Industry 4.0 Safe human-machine interaction in smart factory scenarios Robust and reliable solutions with HALCON 12.0.2 and MERLIC 2
In a human-machine study conducted by an MIT professor, it was shown that teams made of humans and robots collaborating efficiently can be more productive than teams made of either humans or robots alone.
The expansion will allow the company to better serve its growing customer base.
The CoaXPress® camera standard was developed nearly a decade ago to overcome the limitations of Camera Link™, which at the time was the most popular interface for machine vision systems requiring real time data in small volume systems.
This fully integrated solution will feature a Motoman® MH12 robot equipped with end-of-arm tool and vision system, mounted on Clearpath's OTTO 1500 self-driving vehicle. This project is currently under development and supported under the advanced research division of Clearpath.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The seventh annual National Robotics Week, which kicks off this week, will see more than 250 events take place across all 50 states. It's a pretty cool time to celebrate robots. A new generation of small, relatively inexpensive, and highly collaborative industrial robots brought new levels of automation to light industry last year. Home robots, in the form of vacuums and lawn mowers, continue to do well in sales, and drones--technically flying robots--are everywhere. I'm literally watching one fly over a park near my house as I write. New kinds of bots are also making early strides. Companies like Savioke are bringing robots to hotels and others likeRevolve Robotics and Double are connecting people via affordable embodied telepresence--especially people whose disabilities prevent them from traveling to school or work.

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
