Retailers and logistics companies have been opening facilities at a record pace and in this fast-paced world, warehousing and logistics managers are looking for robotics solutions to remain competitive.
Sarah Kessler for Quartz: A startup called RightHand robotics recently began piloting technology that automates a task robots have previously struggled to master: recognizing and picking up items from boxes.
"Our focus on growing this network of technology partners to ensure fast and easy deployment of our robot arms is what really differentiates us from competitors. Were hoping to grow the platform to feature around 100 UR+ solutions by the end of 2017."
We will be displaying the latest products in our End of Arm Tool building system components along with an inventory management system intended to help our customers have the product they need at their fingertips.
Matrix Design, LLC will be exhibiting at Automate 2017 from April 03-06, 2017 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Held every two years, Automate exhibitors will be showcasing a full range of automation technologies and solutions in robotics, motion control, and vision.
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.
