ADVANCED ROBOTICS FOR MANUFACTURING INSTITUTE AND CMU'S MANUFACTURING FUTURES INITIATIVE TO BE FIRST TENANTS AT RIDC'S MILL 19
"Advances in robotics, artificial intelligence, materials science and 3-D printing are rapidly transforming manufacturing, with the power to trigger a significant resurgence of this economic pillar in the United States, and in Pittsburgh in particular."
Nick Statt for The Verge: Kindred's new production model robots, now called Kindred Sort, have been operating in a pilot program at a Gap warehouse, with plans to expand the fleet of robots to help the retailer's full fulfillment network down the line.
The industrial robotics market is expected to be worth $71.7 billion by 2023, according to new research. The rapid growth is affecting markets across the board, from automotive and electronics to cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Here, Graham Mackrell, managing director of robot gearing specialist Harmonic Drive UK, looks at the drivers and what businesses can expect to see in the coming years.
VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete applicationready platforms, now offers a 40GbE rugged 6-slot MicroTCA chassis in a 1U height.
The combination of new applications for robotics for automotive, military and healthcare applications and lower cost sensor technology is causing significant growth in the sensors for robotics market, according to BCC Research's recent report on the topic.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
