The unique demonstration showed what can happen when advanced robotics meets the arts.
Energid's Actin toolkit facilitates the creation of many types of robots with fluid, human-like movement and skills. Actin enables these robots to do complex tasks requiring dexterous manipulation that are not easily supported by traditional control software. Actin's control software, coupled with machine vision, enables robots to dynamically avoid collisions with humans and other objects. It supports visual servoing, enabling accurate vision-based manipulation of objects in changing environments.
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.
Global commercial unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) revenues will reach $15bn in 2022, according to a new report from Interact Analysis. UAVs or drones, which are currently best known for their use by the military are finding their way into countless commercial applications the research found. The industry is predicted to grow on average by 50% per year over the next five years, reaching $15bn in 2022, up from just $1.3bn in 2016.

New Tecnotion QTR65 and QTR78 series frameless torque motors. High Torque in an even smaller package
Tecnotion introduces a new series of smaller QTR torque motors at the SPS IPC Drives 2017. A new 65 mm and 78 mm diameter motor make the quality and torque of Tecnotion QTR series motor available for even smaller applications.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Acutronic was set up in 2016, and offers a way to allow components combine in new robotics systems easily with ready-made compliance with industry and commercial standards for easy deployment.
Fears of Robots Eliminating Jobs is Overblown, Says Machine Vision Manufacturer
OCTOPUZ was recently featured as a global solution in a document created by the Waterloo EDC that examined Industry 4.0 and what it meant for the region. This article will look at what exactly Industry 4.0 means, and what it implicates for the future.
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.
Algoryx Simulation AB, Sweden, has been contracted to provide solutions for physics simulation to the world's premiere robotics competition, World Robot Challenge held at the World Robot Summit, Japan.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
