Removing the Roadblocks of Machine to Machine Communication in Manufacturing

Solving the challenge of data interoperability exists for the IT function in many situations. For the connected factory this means enabling the flow of information between machines, which in the past has been easier said than done.

This New Kind of Robot Mimics Octopus to Change From Rigid to Soft

If robots are capable of rapidly adjusting their dampness, stiffing and dynamics, like octopi are, the added flexibility can make for more versatile robotics than ever.

Safe Cut

Safety gate system and safe interlocking for a core cutter. Where axles rotate, masses are in motion and cutting tools are in action, there is always the question of safety for man and machine.

Using CNNs in Cars

Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are going to play a crucial role in the development of self-driving cars. Applications include driver alertness monitoring, driver gaze tracking, seat occupancy and more

RoboticsTomorrow - Catching up with David Sands of ST Robotics

Markets tend to fluctuate, for example we have not had much interest from the pharmaceutical world in recent years. However there has been a big increase in the use of robots for product testing.

How Self-driving Vehicles Contribute to a Culture of Safety

Companies recognize that maintaining a safe work environment is just as important as increasing productivity. It's maximizing the safety and efficiency of a facility that matters most, and SDVs are a tool both manufacturers and warehouses can use to makes this possible

Dürr Building Smart and Resource-efficient Paint Shop in Mexico

Dürr is building a paint shop in Mexico for its customer BMW Group that meets the requirements for connected Industry 4.0 production. This ultra-modern plant features the first integrated smart factory concept from Dürr in the world is being built at San Luis Potosi

Robotic Technology Goes Beyond Automation

While the obvious benefit of robotic technology is to automate business processes, there are an abundance of opportunities for robotic technology to improve the lives of humans without engaging in automation.

Advancement of Robots in Medicine

Robotic surgery is deemed by and large safer than open surgery. The hospital stay is shorter, reducing the risk of infection; pain and discomfort is reduced; recovery time is faster; and blood loss and transfusions are lessened.

Robotic Process Automation vs. Business Process Automation in the Modern Customer Centric Enterprise

RPA is just one automation tool that can play a role in a larger automation / improvement strategy, where technologies such as Business Process Automation or Business Process Management (BPM) also play a role.

Stepping It Up A Notch

Stairs are still unsurmountable obstacles for many robots. Yet a young team at ETH Zurich is building a vehicle designed to negotiate steps with ease - by hopping.

What's Driving Investments in Surgical Robots?

Ideally, hospitals and clinics would be able to justify the cost of a new robot based on scientific studies on its effectiveness and business cases on its usability. But for new platforms, these are very scarce.

PRE-TEC Integrates ATI Tool Changers in a Fast Finishing Solution

One Master-and-Tool plate pair picks up and holds the protective cardboard in place, while the other Master-and-Tool plate pair carries the staple gun to the load and secures the cardboard pieces to the finished bundle.

How Industrial Self-driving Vehicles Use Sensors for Localization and Mapping

OTTO self-driving vehicles depend on three different sensors to identify its current position as well as to navigate where and how it needs to travel from point A to point B. As in any dense and dynamic environment, elements in OTTO's path can change minute to minute

Power Density in Robotics

A question of torque - Inspection robots for pipes and ducts, rescue robots in disaster areas, or humanoid robots - they all have one thing in common: They are mobile robots that aid humans.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
