University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) using Robotmaster to help students' racing team
The students from the University of Sheffield's Department of Mechanical Engineering make up the Sheffield Formula Racing (SFR) team, who are entering this year's car - the SFR6, into the annual Institute of Mechanical Engineers' (IMechE) Formula Student competition.
OCTOPUZ was created to meet the rising needs in the robotics industry, and uses a revolutionary method of combining offline programming of robots with manufacturing process simulation.
In its 19th year, BEW is the premier welding exhibition within the robotics landscape in China and was a solid platform for Robotmaster to showcase its robot programming technologies.

OCTOPUZ not only makes the complex simple, but it can also help your company save time and improve safety through Dynamic Model Simulation. Also known as Dynamic Tooling, it is an OCTOPUZ feature that shows how objects can change when they're physically pushed during a robotic automation process.

By John Schmid of the Journal Sentinel: The Texas facility that mass-produces State Fair corn dogs and Jimmy Dean Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick retooled itself recently as a hyper-automated smart factory. It installed 1,500 sensors to collect gigabytes of data on everything from raw meat inventories to wastewater and electrical usage. Then the Fort Worth factory took one extra step into the future of industrial technology: It added software that transmits all of that real-time data onto smartphones and tablets, making it possible for plant managers to monitor their production network from anywhere on the factory floor — and during coffee breaks or vacations, as well. If they choose — so far, most don't — this new breed of mobile managers can even operate factory equipment remotely, shutting off pumps or speeding up production lines. Technology has made that sort of operation as easy as playing a smartphone video game, but it can be reckless because a lot of equipment can interfere with or hurt those who are physically present. It's only a matter of time, some say, before factory controls migrate to Google Glass, the wearable displays mounted in eyeglass frames, or smart wristwatches. Cont'd...

Piab's Kenos KCS gripper enables a collaborative robot to handle just about anything at any time. Combining Piab's proprietary air-driven COAX vacuum technology with an easily replaceable technical foam that molds itself around any surface or shape, the gripper can be used to safely grip, lift and handle any object. Standard interface (ISO) adapters enable the whole unit to be attached to any cobot type on the market with a body made in a lightweight 3D printed material. Approved by Universal Robots as a UR+ end effector.
