In 2017 robot installations are estimated to increase by 21 percent in the Asia-Australia region. Robot supplies in the Americas will surge by 16 percent and in Europe by 8 percent.
We showcased our newly launched T3 All-in-One SCARA robot, which addresses the need for a cost-effective and easy-to-use automation solution that is ideal for simple applications and a great alternative to slides.
Will Knight MIT Technology Review: Humatics, an MIT spinout, is developing an indoor radar system that should give robots and other industrial systems the ability to track people's movements very precisely.
Since the medical and manufacturing industries both handle sensitive materials, the shift to having robots handle them instead can save lives and cut costs.
PMMI and Workhorse partner to provide show attendees an exclusive glimpse at advancements in aerial automated delivery systems
Cobots and mobile robots are both new technologies that are still being developed and industry is just now learning how to implement them. Further, these examples represent new applications that use robotics in applications where they have never been used before.
Come see how our IP65 FHA Rotary Actuator withstands water being sprayed at it during the entire show! We will also have a variety of product configurations and sizes that visitors can see up close.
Our Pack Expo booth S-8257 will showcase a new mobile and modular tabletop system featuring vision-guided multiple part feeding and kitting with conveyor tracking and case loading/unloading.
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.
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.
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.

Factory Automation - Featured Product
maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
