Probably the most impressive symposium of the service robotics movement celebrates a major anniversary: SCHUNK, a competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology, is holding the now-legendary SCHUNK Expert Days on Service Robotics for the tenth time.
The iRex 2017 was held in Tokyo to discuss the topic “The Robot Revolution Has Begun – Toward Heartwarming Society” and showcased the latest developments in the robotics industry with a special focus on subjects such as artificial intelligence, big data, and new communication strategies and networks.
In the future, the high-precision SCHUNK TRIBOS polygonal clamping technology will also be used for lathes and automatic revolving transfer machines. SCHUNK, a competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology, has developed special polygonal toolholders with ER cone for this purpose, which can be combined with all commercially available mountings for ER collets and with driven tools in particular.
SCHUNK is building on its advantage when it comes to grippers for collaborative operation: with the SCHUNK Co-act gripper EGP-C, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology is presenting for the first time an inherently safe industrial gripper that is certified and approved for collaborative operation by the German Social Accident Insurance DGUV.
