Industry 4.0 Data Brings You Closer To The Customer

Industry 4.0 will significantly alter the traditional model of pushing products to market, instead creating a more collaborative environment between goods producers and their customers.

Amazon's Robot War Is Spreading

Patrick Clark and Kim Bhasin for Bloomberg Technology: It was Amazon that drove America's warehouse operators into the robot business. Quiet Logistics, which ships apparel out of its Devens, Mass., warehouse, had been using robots made by a company called Kiva Systems. When Amazon bought Kiva in 2012, Quiet hired scientists.

Yaskawa Motoman GP-Series Robots Provide High-Speed Handling to Boost Productivity

Ideal for high-speed assembly and handling applications, the new GP-series robots are fast, compact and efficient. Available now in three models - GP7, GP8 and GP12 - these six-axis robots offer the highest payload, fastest speed and highest wrist allowable moment in its class.

Yaskawa Motoman Collaborative Robot Offers Flexible and Affordable Task Automation

Featuring power and force limiting technology, Yaskawa Motoman's new six-axis HC10 robot works safely with, or in close proximity to humans by stopping the robot in the event of contact with an operator. Dual torque sensors in all joints constantly monitor force to quickly react to contact; something typically only found in more expensive systems. It is designed to eliminate operator pinch points while through-arm utilities hide cabling and increase safety by reducing the risks of snagging or interference with other equipment.

ArcWorld 200 and ArcWorld 500 Workcells With Dual Workstation Design

The new ArcWorld® 200 and ArcWorld® 500 welding solutions are designed to be versatile workhorses for small- to medium-sized parts or medium-volume production runs. These customizable models feature a dual-station design allowing for high robot utilization; the operator can load one workstation while the robot is servicing the other. Floorspace requirements are minimal, as they can occupy a typical single-station space.

AccuFast II Laser-Based Seam Finder Improves Weld Quality, Reduces Cycle Times

AccuFast™ II, an economical laser-based seam finder for Yaskawa Motoman's arc welding robot line, features improved sensor capabilities. The improved sensor offers increased performance by providing more reliable and repeatable feedback to the robot controller regarding part position. It also provides readings on a variety of materials and at angles of measurement that were not formerly possible.

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.
