Productivity Inc. Wants Your Robot to Do More

Using ATI's QC-11 Tool Changer and RCT-151 Radially-Compliant Deburring Tool along with a Renishaw probe, they produced a demonstration highlighting their expertise in aiding potential customers to maximize productivity of the robots already installed in their facilities

Ideal Spindles for High-Speed Robotic Milling of Plastics and Composites

One application for which robot arms are well suited is using a kind of deburring tool as a cutting instrument when working with relatively soft materials like plastics and composites.

Talking AUTOMATE 2023 with Stäubli

When you visit us at booth 2632, you will be able to experience a live demo of our robotic tool changer system, as well as our new end-of-arm-tooling solutions for material handling in automated manufacturing processes including gripping, suction, and cutting.

Intelligent Box Opening Device (IBOD)

You have lots of cartons coming into a typical warehouse, let's say 600 boxes per hour, and razor blades are used to cut these boxes while keeping up with intake speeds. This invites risks and employees still get injured, despite safety precautions.

End-of-Arm-Tooling powered by Stäubli Fluid Connectors

Stäubli Fluid Connectors presents a new End-of-Arm-Tooling range: The mechatronics specialist offers a broad technology portfolio from a single source coupled with advice for individual solutions in robotic material handling.

4 Critical Considerations When Selecting a Robotic End-Effector System

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.

HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Technology for End of Arm Tooling

When HP set out to develop this technology, the aim was to push beyond prototyping and enable repeatable, higher volume additive manufacturing. We can do this by combining a powder bed fusion approach with HP's Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology.

ArtiMinds and ATI Accelerate Technology Implementation with Greene Tweed

Choosing the right automation partners led Greene Tweed to quickly develop, integrate and install a more flexible automated material removal cell.

Metal 3DPrinting over CNC for custom EOAT

This small component was stopping them from realizing the full potential of their manufacturing process as they could only run the system when there was someone there to restart the system if a stoppage occurred due to slippage.

How Robotics is Transforming Manufacturing

When you sell a robot, the amount of additional required pneumatic components, sensing products, vision inspection systems and machine safety products can cost as much or more than the robot itself. Every robot sold has an exponential economic ripple effect.

Making "cheddar" With Industrial Automation - Achieving 83 Per Cent Waste Reduction in Food Manufacturing

Ultrasonic uses energy from microscopic vibrations of a blade to pass easily through the material and offers a more effective solution for cutting cheese and other food products. When paired with automation, ultrasonic technology can deliver precise and accurate cutting.

How Top Modules Make AMRs Possible

An AMR without a top module is like a robotic arm without an end-effector tool such as a gripper-it lacks functionality. The benefits of AMRs are only realized-and maximized-with top modules and high-quality gates and carts that transfer the transported materials.

New Robotic Grippers Transforming the Food Sector

While traditional robotics systems have successfully served the food sector for many years in palletizing (and some packaging) applications, it is only in recent years that it has become possible for robots to handle delicate food items directly.

Questions to Ask Before Selecting Your Air Gripper

The array of gripper choices in the automotive, pharmaceutical and electronics and industries for pick-and-place automation systems are numerous. The many gripper styles - all of which have their own size, method of operation, and level of human interaction - is daunting.
