Implementing the Most Efficient Picking Paths to Meet Crucial KPIs

In today's demanding market, efficiency of operations is an essential factor to remaining competitive. One area where there are often substantial opportunities for improvement is your warehouse pick paths.

Automatic Loading and Unloading of Pressed Parts Through 3D Container Inspection

The actual workflow that FrameSense is designed to automate is part of many manufacturing operations. A component comes out of a machine - here a press - and runs on a conveyor belt to a container.

Warehouses may be the first industry to adopt humanoid robot workers

With the news that Amazon is testing a humanoid robot - Agility Robotics' Digit - in its warehouses, we explore what the future looks like for bipedal robots in logistics.

CoaXPress over Fiber

Fiber optics transmit data as pulses of light through strands of fiber made of glass or plastic. When bundled with hundreds of other strands, the resulting fiber optic cable will transmit more data at faster speeds and over longer distances than high-grade copper cables.

Omron Introduces the SWIR Camera Series Enabling Precision Inspection Across the Manufacturing Process Using Short Wave Infrared Technology

The new SWIR Camera Series takes inspection opportunities to new avenues by featuring new infrared technology, versatile inspection capabilities, multiple unique interfaces, and one-of-a-kind heat dissipation technology.

SCARA Robot Sorts Recyclables Using a Simple Conveyor Speed Feedback System

As Everest Labs was developing their system to be sold to recycling centers worldwide, they found that their robot needed speed feedback in order to track the recyclables on the conveyor, and therefore needed a simple way to install conveyor speed feedback on a gear motor.

HARDWARE AS A SERVICE: A NEW PARADIGM FOR SERVICE CONTRACTS

A flexible revenue approach is a defining feature of HaaS, offering organisations a 'pay-as-you-go' model instead of the traditional CapEx hardware purchasing model. This offers manufacturing organisations, regardless of their size, several advantages.

Schmalz Technology Development - The Right Gripper for Every Task

Schmalz Technology Development - The Right Gripper for Every Task

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components. Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.
