Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 31E Series of rotary angle sensors. The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to an applications rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
High speed, high performance motor drives are required for applications such as printers, surveillance cameras, office automation equipment, banking terminals such as ATMs, banknote identification machines, amusement machines, and home appliances.
This release includes 49 best-in-class robots developed by OMRON Adept Technologies, Inc. These have been integrated with OMRON's family of sensors, safety components and award-winning NX/NJ series machine automation controllers to simplify the introduction of robots in a production environment.
Patrick Burnson for Logistics Management: “Robots work in many industries but haven’t made an impact on logistics yet because of the complexity of the work – handling a wide array of different things in an infinite number of combinations, close to people and in confined spaces,” says Matthias Heutger, Senior Vice President Strategy for the Group. “Current research shows that 80 percent of logistics facilities today are still manual. Recently, however, technology is just starting to catch up to meet demands for flexible and low-cost robots that could collaboratively work in logistics.” The report highlights that the development of the next generation of robots that can see, move, react to their environment and work at precision tasks alongside people, is on a fast track powered by the explosion in labor-intensive e-commerce and diminishing and ageing workforces.
