Manufacturers can start production faster with AirPick and EPick, says Robotiq.
OnRobot, which nakes grippers for cobots and industrial robots, is opening a new R&D office in LA. We spoke with the former CEO of Perception Robotics about OnRobot’s strategy.
Ket-Met, a Finnish subcontract machine tooling shop, found that its existing CNC machines required too much manpower to stay competitive. It reduced machine hour costs by 40% with UR cobots.
Schunk has introduced a 24V gripper with IO-link called the Schunk EGP. It is designed for small components during fast-paced pick & place applications. The Schunk EGP electric gripper satisfies the IO-Link Class B Standard suitable for increased power consumption and can be directly connected with an IO-Link Class B Master. Schunk said the EGP […]
PHD has released a new jaw-travel option for its GRR grippers, offered the Pneu-Connect X2 with dual grippers, and announced seventh-axis transition plates for its Series ESU and UR cobots.
The U.S. Robotics Roadmap is a guide to where robotics is going for government and industry. The team behind it is seeking community participation for the next revision.
AWS RoboMaker is designed to ease development of robotics applications. Amazon Web Services is making it available in more regions worldwide.
New Scale Robotics (NSR) has announced the first multi-tool mounting system for Universal Robots (UR) e-Series cobots. The NSR-MTM-3-URe Multi-Tool Mount (NSR-MTM) allows users to mount and control up to three grippers or other tools on one UR e-Series cobot. The NSR-MTM System allows users to quickly set up and perform multiple processes with one robot. […]
Researchers at TU Delft have developed soft actuators that could help soft robots collaborate with humans.
Rutgers computer scientists used artificial intelligence to control a robotic arm that provides a more efficient way to pack boxes, saving businesses time and money. “We can achieve low-cost, automated solutions that are easily deployable. The key is to make minimal but effective hardware choices and focus on robust algorithms and software,” said the study’s […]
Many work processes would be almost unthinkable today without robots. But robots operating in manufacturing facilities have often posed risks to workers because they are not responsive enough to their surroundings. To make it easier for people and robots to work in close proximity in the future, Prof. Matthias Althoff of the Technical University of […]
The new Catbot cobot from Elephant Robotics includes features such as voice control for ease of use.
Conic Systems has developed the new Lifetime (LT) Series, precision, zero backlash harmonic gearboxes designed for high performance direct replacement of traditional high ratio planetary gearheads. The LT Series is available in metric sizes and NEMA 17, 23, 34 and 42 frames. The LT Series’ zero backlash characteristic is maintained for life and its high […]
The piSOFTGRIP from Piab is vacuum-controlled, comes with a stainless-steel fitting, and is made of food-grade silicone.
Bimba’s PA Series has features intended to make it easier to install, easier to use, and more durable than other pneumatic actuators.
Sepro Group, which makes industrial automation for plastics injection molding, will be integrating is Visual Control System with collaborative robots from Universal Robots.
The FE060-25-EM is the first servo drive of the new FlexPro digital drive family from ADVANCED Motion Controls (AMC). Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FE060-25-EM can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces. At just 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 in. (38 x 25 […]
