One application for which robot arms are well suited is using a kind of deburring tool as a cutting instrument when working with relatively soft materials like plastics and composites.
When you visit us at booth 2632, you will be able to experience a live demo of our robotic tool changer system, as well as our new end-of-arm-tooling solutions for material handling in automated manufacturing processes including gripping, suction, and cutting.
You have lots of cartons coming into a typical warehouse, let's say 600 boxes per hour, and razor blades are used to cut these boxes while keeping up with intake speeds. This invites risks and employees still get injured, despite safety precautions.
Stäubli Fluid Connectors presents a new End-of-Arm-Tooling range: The mechatronics specialist offers a broad technology portfolio from a single source coupled with advice for individual solutions in robotic material handling.
Finding and implementing the perfect end-effector system is reliant on the user giving due consideration to four critical areas. Only when complete understanding of the needs in these four realms is acquired can an educated end-effector choice be made.
When HP set out to develop this technology, the aim was to push beyond prototyping and enable repeatable, higher volume additive manufacturing. We can do this by combining a powder bed fusion approach with HP's Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology.
Choosing the right automation partners led Greene Tweed to quickly develop, integrate and install a more flexible automated material removal cell.
This small component was stopping them from realizing the full potential of their manufacturing process as they could only run the system when there was someone there to restart the system if a stoppage occurred due to slippage.
When you sell a robot, the amount of additional required pneumatic components, sensing products, vision inspection systems and machine safety products can cost as much or more than the robot itself. Every robot sold has an exponential economic ripple effect.
Making "cheddar" With Industrial Automation - Achieving 83 Per Cent Waste Reduction in Food Manufacturing
Ultrasonic uses energy from microscopic vibrations of a blade to pass easily through the material and offers a more effective solution for cutting cheese and other food products. When paired with automation, ultrasonic technology can deliver precise and accurate cutting.
An AMR without a top module is like a robotic arm without an end-effector tool such as a gripper-it lacks functionality. The benefits of AMRs are only realized-and maximized-with top modules and high-quality gates and carts that transfer the transported materials.
While traditional robotics systems have successfully served the food sector for many years in palletizing (and some packaging) applications, it is only in recent years that it has become possible for robots to handle delicate food items directly.
The array of gripper choices in the automotive, pharmaceutical and electronics and industries for pick-and-place automation systems are numerous. The many gripper styles - all of which have their own size, method of operation, and level of human interaction - is daunting.
Alternatives to hard components hold potential for applications from surgery to space exploration
We have developed specialized lifting solutions to solve the problems with repetitive strain injuries of manual handling in most of the areas in a Distribution Center (receiving dock, storage area, picking area, shipping dock). Booth #2602

Designed for assembly and inspection applications in the electronics equipment and automobile components industries, the THE600 SCARA is a powerful automation tool. Advancing from the specifications of the existing THE400 SCARA, the THE600 has been developed to meet growing demand for fast-cycle automation. The THE600 model includes improvements in synchronised control and tracking precision. The THE600 is compact in design and offers improved high speed, with 60 per cent higher payload capacity than competing SCARA models in the same price range, making it the price-to-performance leader. Affordable price, impressive performance.
