There is an increasing demand for collaborative robots that can work autonomously and adapt to changing production conditions. This requires reliable sensors that detect human presence and can overcome future challenges with the development of collaborative technologies.
Rather than getting immersed in ambiguous statistics and marketing buzzwords like flexible or fixed automation, this paper looks at the specific applications that favor each technology to chart the future of palletizing automation.
Current systems try to keep the cables on a six-axis robot static while everything operating around them is dynamic. Instead, consider a six-axis robot as three separate sections: the sixth to third axis; the third to second axis; and the second to first axis.
MICROMO launches the new MC3/MCS motion control family. The new high performance, intelligent controllers are optimized for use with FAULHABER motors, offer electronics for simple operation with state-of-the-art interfaces for multi-axis applications, and provide a motion control system solution with the most compact integration into industrial grade housing.
