Business Perspectives and the Impacts of COVID-19 - Q&A with Universal Robots

Universal Robots' VP of Operations and Supply Chain, Martin Kjærbo shares with us his thoughts on how Universal Robots is managing through the pandemic as well as insights into what the future of Robotics and Automation may be.

Case Study: Swiss Productions Maximizes Output with Two Productive Robotics OB7 Cobots

A high quality, efficient, and reliable screw CNC machine shop making two million parts per month, Swiss Productions gained a competitive advantage by implementing two OB7 cobots on their CNC mills to eliminate idle spindle time and maximize production.

How has COVID-19 Impacted the Collaborative Robot (Cobot) Industry

The use of cobots is on the rise and their use is encouraged to stay safe during the pandemic, as some businesses were severely affected due to the social-distancing orders. The collaborative robot market is experiencing an exponential growth.

Universal Robots Launches ActiNav, the World's First Autonomous Bin Picking Kit for Machine Tending Applications

ActiNav synchronously handles vision processing, collision-free motion planning and autonomous real-time robot control, eliminating the complexity and risk usually associated with bin picking applications.

How to Improve Worker Safety Around Robotics

Industrial robots offer increasingly compelling opportunities to help companies get more done and promote consistency in the workplace. Robot safety is another area of concern, especially since robots can reduce some of the risks that cause accidents.

Ergonomic Under Load: Vacuum Handling Systems for the Logistics Industry

In order to become more efficient and work more quickly but at the same time protect the health of their employees, it is worth investing in ergonomic lifting devices.

Lights Out Robot Painting

Robots are revolutionizing the visual arts by providing artists with new creative techniques, says Albert Nubiola, CEO of RoboDK, as an exhibition of robot-made paintings opens in the prestigious Ben Brown Fine Arts gallery, London.

MARS - Mobile Arm Robot System

In response to the growing demand for improved robotic assistance in industry sectors such as retail and light industry, we created MARS, the Mobile Arm Robot System, a robot with more sophisticated autonomous navigation and inspection capabilities.

COMPUTER VISION AND ROBOTICS EXPAND INDUSTRIAL CAPABILITIES

How can industrial robots gain new abilities that can increase their operational value while remaining safe and secure in a factory collaborating with humans?

Innovative Manufacturers Should Embed Automated Systems in Production Processes

Innovative manufacturers should strategically embed three classes of automated systems into their production processes: industrial robots, autonomous robots, and co-bots. These precision tools will allow higher control of processes and thus lead to higher product quality.

Cobots Versus Industrial Robots

Buying a new robot is a considerable investment for any business owner. Collaborative robots have been widely marketed as a cheaper alternative to industrial robots, but what's the catch?

Trends in Industrial Robotics to Watch in 2020

According to one McKinsey study, the market for industrial robotics has increased by double digits each year since 2012, and will continue this growth at least through 2021.

Are cobots inherently safe?

Results from the Global Robotics Report 2019 identified that 79 per cent of automation distributors do not believe their customers understand the safety requirements of installing a collaborative robot.

Me and the Machine

Paralyzed people can learn to walk again with the aid of electromechanical exoskeletons. However, it's not easy. It takes a lot of engineering and hard training.

5 More Ways Robots Keep People Safe

Robots may have been accused of stealing jobs, but they're actually doing more than most people realize to keep workers safe as they go about their daily tasks. Let's take a closer look at five more ways that robots are helping to accomplish this.
