The role of automotive software has changed profoundly in recent years. Software is now being used and is relied upon for critical operations that were previously being performed by hardware.
Die casting, the process of forcing molten metal into molds, is far from new. Today, casting processes use a lot more advanced technology, specifically robots, than in years past. These 'bots have many advantages in die casting, but energy saving is one of the most substantial.
The way the production line is set up is said to be inspired by car factories. The industrial robots from Kawasaki are utilized on the unit assembly line, working on gable frame assembly, and overall assembly to connect the ceiling, floor and gable frames.
When your clients are working with you to integrate lightweight autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), they're looking for the biggest bang for their buck.
A vast majority of manufacturers are integrating robotic systems in production facilities to enhance production capacity, boost profit margins, and cut operational costs. These trends have created a substantial demand for robotic components, including robot sensors like 3D vision.
The applications to patent an interlocking food container easily grasped by robots and another for "devices and methods for attracting enhanced attention" were filed by the Artificial Inventor Project, naming DABUS as the inventor.
To increase productivity in production, more and more companies are deciding to link and automate their machine tools. The right automation system is crucial here. Robots and the appropriate gripping technology play an important role here.
Inertial measurement units (IMUs) are essential tools for manufacturers of off-road heavy-duty vehicles and machinery. They provide critical information that is used to control, monitor and manage the equipment, but also to ensure operator safety during use.
These remote control and highly modular autonomous robots are proving to be valuable assets in the fight against Covid-19. Fitted with maxon motors, these versatile robots are also capable of supporting the unit in large-scale incidents. A report on an heroic collaboration.
From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives.
Countless samples are tested daily in analytical laboratories. The benefits of automation in this area is obvious: They make it possible to achieve faster results, higher throughput, fewer errors and lower personnel costs.
The recently developed intelligent mooring system from iDL, the intelligent Dock Locking System from Dutch company Mampaey Offshore Industries, is the world's first magnetic mooring system. It makes it possible for a London ferry to dock in just ten seconds.
For a world that relies on that infrastructure for essential access to everything from water to electricity, it's a frightening reality, and most feel powerless to do anything about it. From there came the lightbulb inspiration for Gecko Robotics.
Fewer than 2% of forklifts sold in North America are automated, yet there has never been a greater need for this technology. Many manufacturers are looking to automate material handling processes because it reduces the potential for COVID-19 exposure by reducing human contact.
Automation plays a major role in Industry 4.0. Cost reduction, increased productivity and zero-defect quality are factors that are increasingly prompting companies to digitalize their processes. But often full automation also means high investments.

Simpler, stronger, and more precise. ATI Industrial Automation has developed a series of Manual Tool Changers that provides a cost-effective solution for quickly changing tools by hand. They feature a unique design that combines high strength, excellent repeatability, and a patent-pending screw-cam locking mechanism with multiple fail-safe features, which resists vibration and prevents loosening. These robust and compact Manual Tool Changers can handle payloads up to 80 pounds (36 kg) and pass pneumatics and electrical signals.
