The booth demonstration showcases a unitizing approach to robotic palletizing in which loads are built directly onto slip sheets or conveyor, a practice common in manufacturing operations serving a variety of international markets or handling empty containers.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Acutronic was set up in 2016, and offers a way to allow components combine in new robotics systems easily with ready-made compliance with industry and commercial standards for easy deployment.
Siyi Chen for Quartz: A prototype created by the scientists can catalogue items instantly as the drones fly up and down the aisles.
One of the conveyors in action at PACK EXPO is the 3200 Series Precision Move, a conveyor that uses a servo motor, timing belt and the latest advancements in drive technology for applications involving extremely accurate movement of product at specific times, distances and intervals.
We will be introducing our new BLE2 Brushless Motor & Driver at this year's Pack Expo International show. We have two large demos, one showcasing the benefits of our speed control and another showcasing the benefits of position control, which saves money over servo systems.
We had introduced the new TX2 at Automate which is part of the smart factory that we will have set up at PACK EXPO. If you didn't have a chance to learn about the levels of the MRC-Man Robot Collaboration, it would be a good time to stop by and allow us to show you how the TX2 will be used in the packaging market.
FANUC America will be introducing a new high-speed compact palletizer for the first time at the show. This robot is well suited for high-speed palletizing cases and bags. It will be in action at 100% speed.
Janie Har, Associated Press: Jane Kim, the city supervisor who is pushing the robot tax, says it's important to think now about how people will earn a living as more U.S. jobs are lost to automation.
Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.
Remi El-Ouazzane for Intel: The First Vision Processing Unit with a Dedicated Neural Compute Engine will Give Devices the Ability to See, Understand and Interact with the World Around Them in Real Time
The main drivers included improving productivity and efficiency, improving repeatability and consistency of processes, increasing operations capacity, increasing operational agility and flexibility, reducing labor costs, and increasing speed of operations.
David McNally, ARL Public Affairs: Teams of researchers gave 17 live demonstrations of the technologies they've been working on over the past several years. The University of Pennsylvania showcased a group of autonomous quadcopters that self-organize into formations.
Visitors to our booth can see our new absolute hollow-bore, the MA58H. And they can get a demonstration of the software on our new line of programmable Accu-CoderPro™ encoders, the shaft Model 25SP and the thru-bore Model 58TP.
KEBA's latest product innovation is the worldwide unique control element KeWheel. KeWheel is an universal rotary pushbutton with adjustable haptic feedback which offers a completely new operating experience.
Michael Pooler for FT.com: An industrial dance takes place every day and night on the floor of Amazon's huge warehouse in Manchester.
