Today's industrial robot market is vast and diverse, featuring a broad range of different machines to fit various applications. One intriguing robotics subset that's grown in popularity recently is miniature robots.
As manufacturing sectors of all kinds struggle with a growing labor gap, these collaborative grip designs can help streamline facility workflows, reducing the labor necessary to complete tasks while keeping the facility flexible and adaptable.
There are concerns regarding the use of fully autonomous security robots which may get in the way of bringing them to market. Whether those concerns are legitimate or not may impact how quickly robotics will be adopted for security purposes.
The turning of the lead screw transfers the motor power to the spring. It presses from the lower belt on the upper belt, supports the upper body and relieves the lumbar spine.
Insurance can generate high costs, with general liability alone costing businesses a median of $500 a year. If robots can reduce premiums and claims, it would make a strong argument in their favor.
Like any mechanism, robots can shed particles from belts, gasses from hoses and dust particles from the movement of the end effectors. It is this particle disbursement that can be the critical issue for clean room robotics.
Modern transportation wouldn't be the same without robots, and the future will only serve to solidify this. Here's how robots are pushing the transportation industry forward and where they could go from here.
Automated packaging solutions can streamline almost any business's operations, providing a potential competitive edge and benefits like reduced waste or lower labor needs.
In May 2021, Ford opened the doors of its new Robotics Building as part of the University of Michigan. This massive structure is four stories tall and covers 134,000 square feet.
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
The RTOS must evolve to meet the rising demand of artificial intelligence and other intelligent edge technologies. Clear synergies and dependencies among AI, security, connectivity, and data analytics can only be addressed with modern RTOS development.
Scientists propose a novel mechanism for inducing high-speed bending in thick crystals by heating them up with light
This is how Industry 4.0 technology is revolutionizing the robotics industry - and what changes robotics professionals should expect over the next few years.
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 company has dedicated robotics and advanced technologies labs and hires specialists to develop and test possibilities. Here are some of the latest robotic creations made to improve worker safety at Amazon.

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
