Humans and robots – side by side

Poor concentration and fatigue – never! Robots have always been seen by their human counterparts as reliable and indispensable “colleagues”. They are now increasingly handling the welding, bending, cutting, separation, transfer and storage of pipes and tubes. Thanks to artificial intelligence and machine learning, robots are set to become even more flexible and will eventually replace purely repetitive robots altogether.

EMAG at GrindTec 2018: High-precision results for small components

Cost pressure and increasing quality requirements are influencing the automotive sector more than ever before. And yet complex processes such as out-of-round grinding are coming to the fore. How can these sophisticated grinding processes be carried out even more efficiently? The EMAG Group will be providing tailor-made answers to this question from March 14 to 17 at GrindTec 2018 in Augsburg. One of the highlights of EMAG’s appearance at the trade fair (Hall 5, stand 5029) will be the vertical grinder VG 110, which is ideally suited to out-of-round grinding chuck parts.

Titus Group at EUROGUSS Nürnberg 2018
