Innovation Stage Q&A with SICK Inc. - To explore the impact of I4.0 and sensors in automated pharmaceutical manufacturing, we spoke with Ron Stuver, director of business consulting at SICK, Inc. (Booth LS-6419), a leading provider of manufacturing sensors.
Harmonic Drive is well-known for our zero-backlash strain wave gear products. Many machine designers and builders don't realize that we also manufacture Planetary gears. Booth #LS6068
Packaging Professionals Address Innovation Stage Topics set for PACK EXPO Las Vegas. By: Sean Riley, senior director, media and industry communications, PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies
Whether you're looking to maximize shelf impact, create a more e-commerce friendly package, increase sustainability, functionality or achieve other product differentiations, you'll find the packaging solutions you want at PACK Expo.
As packaging applications continue to evolve, industry is asking for conveyor systems with a higher level of automation. Booth C-1844
The show is expected to host 30,000 attendees, including 5,000 international visitors from more than 125 countries, with a wide range of job functions, including engineers, purchasers, production supervisors, package designers, brand managers and marketers.
We will be offering instruction on ergonomic lifting that promotes worker's back health and safety throughout the show. Giving visitors the opportunity to see for themselves the quality and value by test-driving the lifters.
At booth #US-8071 attendees will see our entire family of user-friendly, powerful and robust AMRs for heavy and light transport that optimize logistics throughout the entire production chain, from the warehouse to the delivery of goods.
Attendees visiting our booth (LS-5809) will see a live robotic demonstration of our QC1 Micro Tool Changer and view our Force/Torque Sensors and Compliance Compensators. ATI's Tool Changers allow robots to exchange end-of-arm-tools (EOAT) automatically.
Staubli will be illustrating assembly and packaging of medical devices with the TX2 Stericlean variants, which is the first choice for clean room or aseptic processes and applications. Booth #LS5956
PACK EXPO takes place in Las Vegas, NV September 23rd - 25th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
This year, we're demonstrating new robotic palletizing and depalletizing solutions, now available with advanced diagnostics and predictive failure capabilities to improve throughput rates and uptime of mission-critical production operations. Booth #C-3136.
Piab is proud to introduce to Pack Expo the new soft gripping tool piSOFTGRIP®, developed especially with food industry automation in mind. The vacuum-based soft gripper will grip sensitive and lightweight objects of odd geometries and/or an unusual surface. Booth #C-4736
Vision systems from SICK enable flexible automation for positioning, inspection, and measurement tasks. It also promotes the use of collaborative robots or "cobots" as a means to effective and safe human-robot collaboration.
The new destination area is an ideal place for attendees to get ideas and inspiration, meet leading robot providers and interact with cutting edge robotic technologies first-hand.

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
