When faced with a multi-axis alignment and positioning application, motion engineers typically assemble a system from a stack of individual linear and rotary stages. This approach works well for applications when only a few degrees of freedom are involved (e.g. XYZ).
Ready or not, advanced robotics, AI and automated hardware are all making their way into the construction industry. As these technologies are adopted on a grand scale, we'll start to see many archaic processes upgraded - not just to be more modern, but also more efficient...
Automating data collection in the brick-and-mortar space continues to be an elusive goal. Yet to achieve the highest level of efficiency across the supply chain, automation is the target everyone is chasing.
The customer required precision rotary axis control in the lowest profile form factor for multiple sequential robot arm joints. Key additional requirements included minimal movement at start-up to report absolute position...
Future Generation of Tech Innovators Gather for Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation's VEX Robotics World Championship
World's largest robotics competition with more than 25,000 attendees from 40 nations celebrates hands-on STEM education and Girl Powered announcement by Google
Pioneering the Next Era of Space Operations and Exploration Through On-Orbit Servicing, Assembly and Manufacturing
The ability to robotically service, assemble, and manipulate assets in space promises to enable entirely new capabilities for commercial and government missions and will become essential to our exploration of the universe.
Learning without programming means anyone can teach OB7 to do hundreds of complex automation jobs quickly. The operator simply shows OB7 how to do the job by physically moving the cobot through the steps, and it learns and remembers.
The cost and risks for small to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) to train employees as well as implement and deploy robots for immediate impact is still too high.
Steven Wyatt, IFR Vice President, presented an outlook by regions, markets and key challenges at the AUTOMATE 2019 in Chicago.
Cobots are safer than ever, but care must still be taken during implementation. These 4 steps will help.
Automate & ProMat 2019 took place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL April 8th - 11th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
The annual STEM-focused week kicks off April 6, 2019 with more than 300 events across all 50 states
Booth #7154 - Our booth features four different application clusters for machine tending, packaging, assembly and processing. We chose to focus on these applications as they are currently experiencing a significant demand for cobot automation.
Booth #6773 - This year's show will be an importing stepping stone into our next chapter as we rapidly expand our distributor network and market traction.
BrainOS isn't just autonomous navigation. It's a comprehensive solution that provides a full suite of core robotic technology "building blocks" that help producers of autonomous machines focus on their own core competencies.

Vert-X 05E Series of dual angle/speed sensors. The series features easy mounting in small and narrow spaces with a 5 mm body depth and mounting flanges with metal inserts. The sensors make measurements only 6 mm from edge of product for close-to-wall measurement applications. Vert-X 05E Series sensors measure angles from 0 to 360°, rotational speed and direction with repeatability to 0.1°.
