The American Welding Society has predicted a deficit of 400,000 welders by 2024. According to specialist welding technologists K-TIG, a US welder's skills are in such high demand they can demand a salary of $100,000.
Currently, there are several tactile sensors used in cobots, including piezoelectric, piezoresistive, capacitive and elastoresistivity types. Piezoelectric technologies are used for gathering data from the cobot's joints and transmitting it to the controller
Manufacturers have long relied on human vision for complex picking and assembly processes, but 3D vision systems are beginning to replicate the capability of human vision in robotics.
The opportunities, conditions and business advantages offered by properly functioning collaborative automation solutions have never been more attractive, while the technology is also more accessible than ever.
Logistics is a constant race to deliver at fast speeds while maintaining a standard of impeccable accuracy at the lowest possible cost. The rise of intense competition makes next-generation applications essential for becoming a trendsetter in this industry.
As automation becomes more pervasive in manufacturing, Flex's François Barbier discusses the positive impact robots and other advanced technology solutions have on their human counterparts.
In this webinar we will look at how integrating robotics into the working world means that both cobots and autonomous systems will be important differentiators for production, processes, and innovation.
There's a misconception that industrial robots are reserved for manufacturing giants. But, according to the Robotics Industries Association (RIA), more enterprises with fewer than 100 employees now own up to ten robots - and this is a growing trend.
The COVID-19 crisis has spurred life sciences labs to ramp up output at warp speed - and Stäubli Robotics is helping to meet critical needs.
Using ATI's AOV-10 Compliant Orbital Sander and Universal Robots UR10e, Kane Robotics integrated an aluminum polishing application that multiplies productivity.
Suppliers have gradually moved from simply selling the concepts of "collaboration" or "safety" to marketing specific landing solutions in different application scenarios and service areas.
While American manufacturers took a hit early on, the sector experienced a 30-month high in December as some U.S. companies calmed supply chain chaos by turning to domestic sourcing options.
FANUC's new CRX e-learning website offers FREE online tutorials. The CRX is an ideal cobot for everyone - plus we guarantee customers eight years of maintenance-free operation, and the same industrial reliability that FANUC is known for.
THIS WHITE PAPER discusses how manufacturers in many industries are leveraging collaborative robots (cobots) to create safe zones for workers returning to production lines.
Wire Cobots is one of the currently final five experiments who have successfully passed from Phase I to Phase II in the ESMERA project. Thus, they are supported and mentored even more on their path towards industrialising their robotics product.

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components. Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.
