Automate 2015 - Expanding on the small robot MZ Series product lineup in 2015, Nachi is proud to announce the Global Launch of the World's Fastest and Lightest Compact Robot (MZ04) and Low Power Motors Version (MZ04E)
Nachi-Fujikoshi launched the MZ07 compact robot back in 2013 and has been cultivating the world's compact robot markets via our distributor's network such as original tools, bearings, hydraulic fluids and other own-brand products and robot integrators. Eager in 2015, we are currently launching the "MZ04" as the World's fastest and lightest compact robot and the "MZ04E" as a safe robot, with targets set on the 3-4 kg payload capacity segment of the compact robot market. By greatly improving ease of use, we are lowering the automation threshold so that businesses that have never used robots before can accelerate their introduction
Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz is making its North American debut at ProMat 2015 (booth #5521) in Chicago, IL, with a focus on automating e-commerce fulfillment centers.
With the robotic board handling system, the company increased production an average of 20-30 percent and as high as 60 percent on some products.
From Yale's OpenHand Project: This project intends to establish a series of open-source hand designs, and through the contributions of the open-source user community, result in a large number of useful design modifications and variations available to researchers. Based on the original SDM Hand , the Model T is the OpenHand Project's first released hand design, initially introduced at ICRA 2013. the four underactuated fingers are differentially coupled through a floating pulley tree, allowing for equal force output on all finger contacts. Based on our lab's work with iRobot and Harvard on the iHY hand , which won the DARPA ARM program , the Model O replicates the hand topology common to several commercial hands, including ones from Barrett, Robotiq, and Schunk (among others). A commercial version of this hand is currently for sale by RightHand Robotics ... ( homepage )
Robots and controllers from Yaskawa Motoman, ABB and FANUC grace a new generation of Güdel TrackMotion technology at Automate 2015 booth 532.
From MADLAB.CC: Robo.Op is an open hardware / open software platform for hacking industrial robots (IRs). Robo.Op makes it cheaper and easier to customize your IR for creative use, so you can explore the fringes of industrial robotics. The toolkit is made up of a modular physical prototyping platform, a simplified software interface, and a centralized hub for sharing knowledge, tools, and code... ( homepage ) ( github )
Critics of automation claim robots are out to replace people. The near future will show that people are definitely in control and will be able to leverage technology for greater profitability and professional satisfaction.
The use of advanced industrial robots is nearing the point of takeoff, a development that could power a new wave of productivity growth in many industries and lead to changes of up to 5 percentage points in the cost competitiveness of major export economies relative to the U.S., according to new research by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG).
The latest figures show that 179,000 industrial robots were sold worldwide in 2013, according to the International Federation of Robotics. That was a 12 percent jump over 2012. The increase is expected to continue when the final numbers are tallied for 2014.
