Robot-Ready Conveying Optimizes Pick-and-Place

From a machine builder's point of view, robots can solve many processing and packaging line problems, but the chosen material handling systems supplying the line can reduce the robot's performance.

Parcel: A Lower-Cost Way To Automate Last-Mile Delivery Hubs

Solving the challenge of the last mile using traditional methods, like human teams and traditional automation systems, can require a massive upfront investment of capital and time - and often isn't enough to gain an edge in an already cutthroat market.

Pickle's new robot works with people to get your online orders delivered sooner.

Watch this MIT startup's robot unload a trailer blazingly fast. The secret? Keep people in the picture.

Implementing Piece-Picking Robots into Micro-Fulfillment Centers

In today's e-commerce environment, consumers are purchasing single items with a click and that item-handling task has been pushed back upstream into distribution and fulfillment centers.

Boston Dynamics Unveils New Robot for Warehouse Automation

Stretch's mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required - unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.

Picking the Unknown - Robust and Flexible Robotic Automation in Logistics

With more than 70% of labor in warehousing being dedicated to picking and packing, numerous companies are gradually investing in logistics automation. But what happens when the robots must handle an unlimited number of (unknown) stock keeping units?

The Role of Smart Glasses as a Safe Return to Work Strategy

Pick-by-Vision adds to smart technology because smart glasses learn manufacturers' parts; they memorize the visual appearance including robots and bin locations. Pick-by-Vision predicts and prevents mis-picks and decides the best part to pick next.

Grinding and Deburring in a Foundry - standard grippers from the Zimmer Group

A foundry, making different car suspension parts, was using a gripper with a dust cover to grind and deburr parts out of a press. They were having issues with the gripper and getting debris in the guideways and not being able to actuate the gripper.

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.

Seen, stored, learned - Self-learning robots solve tasks with the help of an Ensenso 3D camera

At the Institute for Intelligent Process Automation and Robotics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Robot Learning Group (ROLE) focuses on various aspects of machine learning. The scientists are investigating how robots can learn to solve tasks by trying them out independently.

Pick, Purchase and Program Your First Industrial Robot

Robots aren't always given a favorable representation in pop culture. In Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), homicidal supercomputer HAL 9000 demonstrates how a robot could conspire against its human colleagues.

Picking: the Foundation of E-Commerce Order Fulfillment

Picking is a specific, repetitive task that takes place in every fulfillment warehouse. It's also one of the biggest expenses, often making up more than half of operational costs.

Solve Loading Dock Challenges With Robotic Unloading

This Honeywell Intelligrated white paper examines the specific labor, operational and technological challenges on the loading docks of distribution centers (DCs), and introduces a new solution to help deliver the performance modern supply chains require.

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics Easy to Use, Omnidirectional 7 DoF Mobile Manipulator

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics omnidirectional 7 DoF mobile manipulator combines the easiest to use, most capable omnidirectional autonomous mobile robot with the simplest and most flexible 7 axis collaborative robot arm. The Vector AMR's omnidirectional mobility enables fast, precise docking in any direction or orientation so the OB7 can perform accurate and precise grasping or picking tasks, taking full advantage of the cobots' 7 degrees of freedom (7 DoF) and superior dexterity. It can be powered using Waypoint's EnZone wireless charger that provides on-demand energy and opportunity charging for longer run times. Workers can use this mobile platform to perform repetitive tasks such as machine tending, quality assurance sampling, material replenishment, packaging, and many others, so they can focus on the high skilled jobs for which they are uniquely qualified. It has never been easier or more cost effective to deploy a mobile manipulator for manufacturing and logistics applications.
