KUKA Robotics launches a new open source operating system called KUKA iiQKA.OS – designed from its core, to be easy to use.
Umbratek launched a kickstarter to (pre)sell a new series of collaborative robots (cobots). This new product line is called the UTRA series, and it is a modular robot built from a set of different links lengths and joint motors. The joints are driven by the patented, Umbratek ADRA series actuators. The kickstarter project has already reached to the […]
Rapid Robotics’ solution is a “ready-to-work” robotic work cell, based around a collaborative robot, that is pre-programmed and quick to deploy.
The ROS 2 package is compatible with the Doosan Robot Language, so operators who are familiar with Doosan but have basic ROS knowledge can create robotics application.
Acquisition of industry leading mobile robotics website, together with Mike Oitzman continuing as Editor, strengthens WTWH Media’s robotics brand and serves as catalyst for future growth.
RF Grasp could one day perform fulfillment in packed e-commerce warehouses. Its RF sensing could even instantly verify an item’s identity without the need to manipulate the item, expose its barcode, then scan it.
In addition to the integration and programming of a YuMi cobot, moveline also designed a pneumatic/mechanical device with two vacuum suction pads so that YuMi can insert the labels into the holder.
The interaction of the eviXscan 3D scanner with UR’s cobots is possible due to a extension (URCap) to the cobot software. It enables the cobot to communicate with the eviXscan 3D Suite scanner software.
With the TIA portal’s integrated design, users can now independently implement the UR cobots within major production lines and teach them functions such as jog mode or path point creation.
Safety system monitors two protective fields simultaneously around a cobot, making it possible to dynamically reduce or stop the robot’s movement only when a person is too close to the working area.
The Racer 5 COBOT is a new cobot from Comau that has the ability to switch between industrial robot speeds and safe, collaborative speeds.
The TC1 has four integrated pass-through air ports plus optional electrical passthrough modules that connect directly to cobots from Universal Robots.
The OnRobot MG10 electric magnetic gripper features a built-in proximity sensor and doesn’t require compressed air or cables for operation.
