The goal: fully automated small parts picking. The main driver here is the labor shortage, the big challenge not a technical component like the robot or the gripper, but the design of an overall economic process.
Second-generation prototype Honda Autonomous Work Vehicles (AWV) successfully performed a range of functions at large-scale solar energy construction site
The new maxon site in Beynost (15 minutes from Lyon) required a €10m investment of the maxon Group's own funds, and is located at the heart of a center of excellence for mechatronics.
In 2020, McStarlite invested in automation by integrating a KUKA robot coupled with Robotmaster offline robot programming (OLP) software, to perform the lipskin polishing application.
Leveraging third-party hardware, such as a robotic picking arm, and software, such as customized WMS, is crucial if you want true flexibility in your robotics system.
Matrox AltiZ high-fidelity 3D profile sensor powers TUNASCAN vision system, sorting up to 20 tons of tuna per hour with accuracy rates approaching 100%
Advancements in machine vision drive industrial automation and push the boundaries of what is feasible. Yet one limitation of machine vision could long not be overcome, which seriously restrained the range of tasks that could be automated. This changes now.
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.
From pick-and-pack to palletization, Master's Gallery Foods relies on flexible robotics systems from Quest Industrial to streamline end-of-line packaging throughput at its six Wisconsin cheese maturation facilities.
The camera control, which gives the robot the flexibility for an infinite variety of parts, and the EasyControl graphical user interface with its easy-to-understand input screens that allow users to automate without any robot knowledge.
Evolution in the Press Shop - Intelligent, Camera-based Tool Protection in Stamping and Forming Technology
Boosting efficiency through digitalization - almost no branch of industry can evade it. Also operators of press shops are increasingly networking their production. But - it's not always necessary to replace the entire plant in order to stay up to date.
"S.A.M." will be used as a communication intermediary, connecting a superintendent with a subcontractor from across a job site through two-way communications. It will also be able to traverse the site to remotely inspect work and capture progress photography and video.
Integral to, and supporting RoboFS is unique technology for automated receiving of incoming goods and their reconfiguration into SKU-specific containers and trays for subsequent high-bay storage and picking.
Mobile Robots On The March - 53,000 Warehouses & Factories Will Have Deployed AMRs & AGVs By End Of 2025
At the end of 2020, mobile robots were deployed in just over 9,000 separate customer sites. By 2025, deployments will have increased to over 53,000 sites. Whilst this may seem a lot, it is not even close to reaching the ceiling of market saturation.
There is a seemingly endless selection of DC, stepper, and servo motor products on the market, each with their own advantages and drawbacks. Going into the selection process having answered a few key questions will vastly simplify the selection process.
