Students learn to program robots

Ulm University of Applied Sciences offers the elective subject of Robotics. In this course, students learn to program KUKA robots and carry out exciting experiments in the process. The elective subject always arouses great interest.

New R-2000iC Model for Upside Down Mounting

The six-axes R-2000iC/220U introduced by FANUC, which complements FANUC’s highly successful R-2000 robot series. The new R-2000iC/220U model is the successor to the iB version with 220 kg payload capacity.

ABB unveils newest member of the YuMi family

Building on the success of YuMi®, the world’s first truly collaborative, dual-arm industrial robot, ABB unveils its single-arm collaborative robot, which combines industry-leading capabilities with a much smaller footprint.

KUKA Medical Robotics

KUKA is a leader in the use of robots in medical technology. The team from KUKA Medical Robotics adapts robot systems to many different applications in medicine, making use of the robots’ accuracy, flexibility and reliability.

Getting a grasp of Industry 4.0

Visitors can get a grasp of Industry 4.0 at the current automation shows. In the Arena of Integration at the Motek in Stuttgart, for example, visitors experienced the Multi-Carrier-System for flexibility in intralogistics with batch sizes down to 1. Eberhard Klotz, Head of the Industry 4.0 campaign at Festo explains what contribution Industry 4.0 is already making to the booming automation technology sector today.

24V revolution in assembly automation

With its 24V modular system, SCHUNK has defined a new benchmark in assembly automation. For the first time, complete handling systems can be assembled based on 24V from grippers, rotary gripping units and linear modules. In the user’s opinion, the technology has a great deal of potential. Above all when more and more providers are bringing components based on 24V onto the market – from feeding technology right up to robots that can be used on the move and safety technology. 

FANUC at the EMO 2017 in Hanover

If there is a topic at EMO that has news value then it is certainly the FIELD System (FANUC Intelligent Edge Link and Drive System). Hosting an open platform for advanced analysis and deep learning applications to meet your production needs. FANUC presents technologies related to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the “Industry 4.0” for the entire spectrum of manufacturing automation and the FANUC product range.

AUTOMATICA: The explosive intersection of robots and music

There is a magic that happens when scientific principles and high technology are applied to the creation of music. Music and robots: The interface between technology and creativity Of all living musicians, perhaps none is better known for the exploration of the intersection between music and technology than Nigel Stanford. His use of the principles of…

Flexible and robot-guided Deburring with up to 65,000 rpm per Minute.

Currently, it is hardly possible to deburr complex workpiece contours with robots. Time and again, burr residuals stay at the edge of the workpiece or more material is removed than desired. Moreover, the tools quickly wear or prematurely break. The patented FDB high frequency spindle from SCHUNK starts out exactly from these weak points.
The flexible, adaptive tool compensates the deviations between robot path and workpiece contour.It therefore ensures for perfect results on the workpiece, and shortens programming and commissioning times.

KUKA is further developing the KR AGILUS series

The small robots of the KR AGILUS series feature impressive speed, extreme agility in confined spaces, short cycle times and maximum precision. KUKA has now further developed the service-proven KR AGILUS sixx. With effect from the end of the year, the next generation of the KR AGILUS will be replacing all standard variants of the small robot.
