How can industrial robots gain new abilities that can increase their operational value while remaining safe and secure in a factory collaborating with humans?
Around 20 million cutter blades for hair clippers and beard trimmers leave the Philips plant at Klagenfurt every year. In order to make the complex grinding process as efficient as possible, the company has opted for a pioneering automation concept, where the loading of the machine and the delivery of the parts is fully automated.
FT-Produktion Boosts Output Capacity Without Adding Personnel by Employing Combination of Collaborative Robots and Robot Grippers
"We chose a combination of solutions from OnRobot, Universal Robots, and EasyRobotics because they are easy to program, and the investment will pay for itself in just nine months. It's one of the best business decisions we've ever made."
The impetus was that we wanted to get more power out of the machine and wanted to pack the pallets cleaner and more dimensionally stable. The technology, the know-how and the service convinced us of Piab, after we looked at several manufacturers.
World's First Composite Concrete 7th Axis used for the First Time In Series Production at Car Manufacturer
Commissioned OEM Eisenmann alpha-tec regularly automates complex railway-oriented applications with industrial robots and is familiar with the latest developments on the 7th-axis market. That's why they use the world's first composite concrete 7th axis from IPR
With ATI Deburring Tools, Concept Systems developed a robotic material removal solution for their customer that enables them to produce higher quality parts in less time. The solution reduces scrap and rework, and alleviates safety concerns associated with hand-grinding...
When separating aluminum sheets prior to loading into the press, they can stick together due to a suction effect that occurs as the sheets are lifted. Most methods for destacking aluminum are very slow compared to steel destacking ...
The team needed a robotic system for WEAVE that could quickly but efficiently assist in repositioning 1,000 optical fibers every hour to prepare for the next observation. They would also need a way to traverse the enormous work area and connect utilities
Before their first mission, the robots first travelled all over the factory floor and mapped out their future working environment. For this the robots rely on a powerful laser scanner. On this basis, the mobile robots can get their bearings later ...
As part of a research project, scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a robot that can independently assemble the individual components of an IKEA chair without interruption in less than ten minutes.
The UR3 was integrated in the assembly line by Hirebotics, a Universal Robots Certified System Integrator that basically works like a staffing agency for cobots, letting startups like Creating Revolutions rent cobots by the hour without any upfront capital.
The company has turned to collaborative automation to help it compete in this high-cost labor market, while preserving jobs for its skilled, long-term employees.
The main feature that I like is just that it has kept the precision and repeatability over the last 5 years and we havent had to worry, we havent had to replace any parts. We have done virtually no maintenance what-so-ever.
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.
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

Piab's Kenos KCS gripper enables a collaborative robot to handle just about anything at any time. Combining Piab's proprietary air-driven COAX vacuum technology with an easily replaceable technical foam that molds itself around any surface or shape, the gripper can be used to safely grip, lift and handle any object. Standard interface (ISO) adapters enable the whole unit to be attached to any cobot type on the market with a body made in a lightweight 3D printed material. Approved by Universal Robots as a UR+ end effector.
