ABBs flexible and intelligent manufacturing technologies will help Valmet Automotive reduce investment costs, increase productivity and respond quickly to market demands.
Voice coil actuators, or non-commutated DC linear actuators, consist of a permanent magnetic field assembly (permanent magnets and ferrous steel) and a coil assembly. The current flowing through the coil assembly interacts with the permanent magnetic field and generates a force vector perpendicular to the direction of the current. The force vector can be reversed by changing the polarity of current flowing through the coil.
This important recognition was made at - Volvohallen in Torslanda (Gothenburg), Thursday, January 28th. The award was given for a project related to the provisioning of production facilities for the XC90, S90 and V90 cars, in which Comau developed the commodities "framing" using the geometric transportation system VersaPallet (a system made by Comau). The technological core of the plant consists of a framing station, where 10 robots simultaneously assembly the body of the three different models.
The L-509 delivers precise linear motion, performance, and reliability.
Annual Smart Manufacturing Summit will provide a platform for the key decision makers of the manufacturing industry in order to discuss new technologies, manufacturing automation, expansion of robotics and intelligence in manufacturing. It will give a great chance to exchange knowledge and ideas on how the use of advances in manufacturing can increase productivity, improve quality and reduce costs and discuss current challenges and dynamics of this field. The purpose of the summit is to create a perfect atmosphere conducive to developing strategies for future success and achieving real results as well as active networking.

Greg Nichols for The Kernel: In an era when hunks of cow and pig are packaged and distributed like Amazon Prime parcels, butchering has retained a surprising degree of its old-world craftsmanship. Workers armed with knives and hooks anachronistically slice flesh from bone the same way they have for hundreds of years. That’s because cutting meat—be it on an assembly line or in a niche shop in Santa Monica, California, or Brooklyn, New York—is a skill that requires exceptional dexterity, a good eye, and a honed tactile sense for texture and firmness. Industrial robots may be perfectly suited to welding chassis and painting cars, but they don’t have the touch to cut a succulent T-bone steak. That’s likely to change. JBS, one of the country’s largest meat processors, recently acquired a controlling share of Scott Technology, a New Zealand-based robotics firm. Now JBS is looking at ways to automate its facilities. Robots don’t sleep, don’t collect overtime, and don’t suffer the horrific repetitive stress injuries that plague meat workers. Meat is already packed using machines, and if engineers can figure out how to make automated systems that approximate the deft hands of a butcher, there’s little question giants like JBS, Cargill, and Tyson will replace many of their line workers with robots. In the next decade, adroit robots that can see, feel, and move like humans may finally kill off the butcher. Cont'd...

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
