Friend or foe? Helper or fiend? Here's what robotics really mean for the cutting tools industry and what are the pitfalls to watch out for.
Not investing in the right lubricant is clearly a costly mistake especially if you are buying old machinery for business use. This is because a good lubricant can maximize the returns on your investment by ensuring that your old machinery runs at optimal efficiency...
Gas mixing sounds simple enough. You simply mix a number of pure gasses to create a new mixture. Unfortunately, it's not usually as simple as it sounds. There are many variables and factors that play a role.
For the grinding machine producer Strausak, the robot manufacturer Stäubli and the encoder supplier HEIDENHAIN, the insertion of cylindrical tools into tool holders with a robot arm was a real challenge-and therefore a task made to measure.
Booth #8744 - Showcased at the AUTOMATE show will be a number of nanometer-precise solutions, including the Hybrid Hexapod®. ALIO's Hybrid Hexapod® takes a different approach to traditional 6 Degree of Freedom (6-DOF) positioning devices.
Automation of material handling plays a key role in today's forging equipment solutions.
The boxes used in the video weigh about 5 Kg (11 lbs), but the robot is designed to handle boxes up to (15 Kg) (33 lb). This version of Handle works with pallets that are 1.2 m deep and 1.7 m tall (48 inches deep and 68 inches tall).
White Paper - Many manufacturers have realized significant cost savings and productivity improvements by integrating high strength additive manufacturing (AM) technology into their business, especially in support of their maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) strategy.
These are the four most common workplace injuries, but they aren't the only ones that can occur. The best thing supervisors and business owners can do to protect their employees from on-the-job injuries is to implement comprehensive safety training and continue it annually
HelMo is capable of navigating with complete autonomy by permanently monitoring its environment with three integrated laser scanners and can perform its tasks either fully automatically or in collaboration with humans.
There are many innovative use-cases in manufacturing for mobile software. Some of the more prevalent examples will be discussed below.
Booth #7360 - We will be featuring a Gudel TrackMotion Floor (TMF-1) with a FANUC CR-15iA Collaborative Robot onboard. Cost-effectively and reliably extend the work envelope of any robot with Güdel's TrackMotion floor mount configurations.
Booth #N8154 - Dynatect has drawn on 30 years of custom engineered solutions to develop standardized safety doors that are reliable and simple to integrate. This high-speed roll-up barrier offers benefits that cannot be achieved from sensors and light curtains alone.
Booth #N8334 - Linear Motor Stages with Built-in Controllers and Linear Encoders / Custom XYZ Gantry System
Expo will offer critical insight into leading trends including robotics, AI, blockchain and the digital workforce skills gap - April 8-11 in Chicago

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
