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 haven't had to worry, we haven't 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
The majority of incoming tourists will first encounter robots in the Tokyo Airport. At the time of this writing, there are seven different robots stationed at the airport. Each one features a unique and friendly archetype
The team was able to easily visualize and monitor collected data as they were conducting the survey. As one team member tele-operated the Jackal, another member connected wirelessly via SSH to the robot to visualize the data in RViz on a laptop.
Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies
Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.
Programming a robot movement that must follow a volume in space is a complicated thing to do. We were able to do it with the path recording function of the FT 300.
Without tool changers, we have to manually detach the tool from the robot with bolts and thumbscrews, wheel the tool away on a cart, and attach a new tool the same way. This is tedious and not possible for one person to do by themselves.
Mississippi's WALT Machine Inc. specializes in high-precision optical work for scientific camera assemblies. Each spring WALT Machine must meet a massive challenge: Deliver around 6000 camera housings in 2 months' time, with only one CNC machine.
The company was looking to integrate a robot system that could handle placing a product sheet label in at least 5 different, smaller container models. The customer came to us with the hope of being able to improve throughput and consistency in their label placement process.
Two mobile robots independently transport goods internally in the Austrian location of Flex, one of the world's leading technology companies. The automation of these monotonous tasks keeps processes lean, efficient and flexible and takes the strain off the employees and enables them to devote more time to more important activities.

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction. Standardized use of stain
