Robotic Welding Series: Perfectly weld imperfect parts with adaptive welding

This is the second of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.

DARPA Trials 2013

The two day DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials 2013 officially ended Saturday, December 21 and here are the results.

Integrated Force Control

A force‐controlled robot can be programmed to mimic the movements of a human arm, applying search patterns to find the correct position to assemble a given part.

Robo-Stox: Investing in the Robotics Revolution

"I've worked a long time to make this happen and am very pleased with the results. It enables investors everywhere to capitalize on the accelerating growth and promising future of robotics." Frank Tobe, Co-founder, Robo-stox LLC and Editor/Publisher, The Robot Report.

Using Drones To Prevent Animal Poaching

These drones are solely surveyors. They must be well equipped to notice when something is out of place or detect potential threats and weapons and alert park rangers immediately.

Robotic Welding Series: Alleviate Skilled Welder Shortages With Robotic Welding Cells

A robot system, fully deployed is going to give two to three-hundred percent return on investment per year.

Using Robots to Clean Oil Spills

As this technology is still in its infant stages, we do not truly know how efficient the process will be. We can only hope that the technology will be there when the next spill happens.

ABB Robotics' Introduces 7th Generation IRB 6700 Family Of Large Robots

ABB Robotics has introduced the IRB 6700 robot family, its seventh generation of industry-leading, large industrial robots.

Hunters: A Good Patent is Good, a Great Lawyer is Even Better

There has to be some way to separate the wheat from the chaff, the frivilous/worthless lawsuits from the honest patents based on hard, sweaty creative efforts that deserve protection.

Harvest Automation Robots Space Over 40,000 Poinsettia Plants in Four Days

Harvest Automation robots are designed to work around the clock, they never need a break, and can handle the most tedious and repetitive work on a Nursery or Greenhouse operation with consistent accuracy and on-time performance.

Air Force Research Lab Uses TORC's Robotic Conversion Kits for Robotic Assault-Zone Survey Vehicle

TORC's unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) conversion kits, which maintain the ability for optionally manned operation, offer the proven capabilities and modularity necessary for AFRL to scale from one prototype to production quantity.

Highspeed Frame Capture Interface With MatLab

CoaXpress and MatLab integration offer options where previously none existed. The ability to have a controllable high speed camera at distances greater than 7m wasn't a possibility before, without the use of extenders and other potential hardware failures.

The Future of Flying Robots

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International projects that the integration of UAVs would have an $82 billion economic impact on the economy by adding 100,000 jobs from 2015 to 2025.

The Savior Aerial Robot (Pars)

The Savior Aerial robot is designed in a way that it can quickly move towards drowning people by user guidance and activates its savior system. This system releases life tubes for the drowning ones.

3D Printing Helps German Manufacturer Seuffer Cut Tooling Costs for Prototype Parts by 97%

Companies worldwide are looking to introduce significant efficiencies to their manufacturing processes when introducing new products, and are discovering the many benefits of additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
