Steven Wyatt, IFR Vice President, presented an outlook by regions, markets and key challenges at the AUTOMATE 2019 in Chicago.
Automate & ProMat 2019 took place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL April 8th - 11th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Booth #7154 - Our booth features four different application clusters for machine tending, packaging, assembly and processing. We chose to focus on these applications as they are currently experiencing a significant demand for cobot automation.
Booth #6773 - This year's show will be an importing stepping stone into our next chapter as we rapidly expand our distributor network and market traction.
Booth #7340 - We will be featuring our NEW RS007N/L general purpose robots as part of a deburring and high speed packing application. These compact robots feature the highest operating speed in their class and an increased work envelope ...
Booth: #N-7515 - Anyone interested in viewing a fully autonomous mobile robotic unloading solution for randomly stacked products should stop by to see this system in action. A vision-guided system with two robotic manipulators operating on top of a mobile platform.
Booth #8157 - LMI will have five demos on display covering complete 3D inline inspection, wide field of view measurement, robotic integration and snapshot sensor solutions.
Booth #7963 - Zimmer Group will be exhibiting our latest developments in HRC (Human Robot Collaborative) grippers designed for most collaborative robots.
Booth #ProMat 2715 - To extend our presence into the modern, collaborative work environments we have newly released EOATs specifically designed for the working safely among human employees.
Booth #7732 - Dorner will be exhibiting our platforms aimed at automation and robotic applications. Dorner's 2200 Precision Move Pallet conveyor is designed to provide accurate positioning and routing of parts for assembly, robotic and inspection applications.
Booth #9530 - We will be using a cobot from Universal Robots to demonstrate safety evaluation and testing for a robot cell. We will also touch on the technical specifications for important robotics standards.
Booth #8360 - piCOBOT®, an EOAT designed for collaborative robots (cobots) using brand new technology from Piab to handle products on a Universal cobot.
Booth #7536 - We are highlighting our recently released Compliant Deburring Blade as well as our low-cost, high-performance Axia80 Force/Torque Sensor.
Booth #7368 - We will showcase our new fleet management system, entire fleet of autonomous mobile robots, including the MiR100, MiR200 and the MiR500, the newest robot that is designed to automate the transportation of pallets and heavy loads across industries.
Booth #7729 - the new 4 In 1 servo drive that presents a complete motion control solution in the palm of your hand (We are unveiling it in this exhibition).

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
