Why Custom Robot Integrations With Rotary Index Drives Makes Financial Sense for a Variety of Manufacturing Applications
As manufacturing is increasingly interwoven with automation, companies seek cost-effective options for integrating rotary index drives with a variety of robotic applications such as spray painting, welding, assembly, material handling and more.
The Airframe is designed like a backpack and can be adjusted to almost any body size with an adjustable frame and straps. It supports the upper extremities of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions and/or stationary arm elevation.
As we see more widespread acceptance for robots in general, we'll likely see even more automation in health care - but some of it is already here.
The mission of my lab is to discover new types of materials that will allow machines, robots, and electronics to be more compatible with our everyday environment.
Bellows are most often used to protect critical components. Actuators used in motion control equipment are often exposed to contaminants ranging from dust and abrasive grit to metal chips and weld spatter.
We picture a reality where they have safe robots in the home to help lift heavy pots off the stove or heavy baskets off the floor, or walking robots that can carry groceries home or carry luggage.
With new advanced programming methods, even small- and medium-sized companies can easily integrate robots into their production line or service area to enhance revenues and process efficiencies.
We needed a powerful configuration platform so customers would have access to complete assemblies, could easily put systems together using automated snaps, and manage operational states
Like anything else, pneumatic robots have associated pros and cons. The case studies and other specifics here indicate how essential it is to evaluate the task at hand and determine whether the process is best carried out with a pneumatic system or another method
Technology is rapidly outpacing many traditional educational institutions, as they are prone to being slowed by bureaucracy and aren't agile enough to embrace the necessary changes needed to provide employable graduates to today's workforce.
The sub-group of surgical robotics is the fastest growing area of robotic and automation adoption in the healthcare industry. We now have the ability to perform surgery with a higher level of accuracy than ever before and even perform surgeries in remote locations
It seems likely robots will continue to be instrumental in helping companies cope with the persistent welding skills shortage. This is a strong example of how technology can assist with overcoming factors that can't always be easy to control or solve.
These embedded module solutions or COM are being used in an increasing number of drone applications because they allow for a greater degree of flexibility, scalability, as well as longevity, within a very small form factor.
The entire focus of this still quite new trade fair is on drones and unmanned systems, how they can be used to improve security, and also how to defend against these technologies in structures that are relevant from a security perspective.
The absence of required machine safeguarding remains a perennial member of OSHA's Top 10 Most Cited Violations, and 2017 was no exception. It was named number eight on the list with a total of 1,933 violations.
