ISO and ASTM have defined an additive construction standard in what could be the first of joint efforts around robotics in that industry.
iREX featured 654 exhibitors, making it the largest version of the show since its inception. Here are six robotics trends from the event.
Techman said its TM25S, the latest entry in its TM AI Series S cobots, is suitable for heavier payloads in palletizing and welding.
With a 30 kg lifting capacity and 1,300 mm reach, the UR30 can tend larger machines, palletize heavy products and support high-torque screwdriving.
Wizard Easy Programming lowers barriers to automation for new users and offers ecosystem partners a tool to support their customers, according to ABB.
Planning early for 2024 robotics investments can help align with business goals and prove project feasibility, says HowToRobot’s CEO.
David Capellani, a regional key account manager at Universal Robots, explains how cobots can be used in the automotive industry.
Universal Robots is doubling production of its UR20 collaborative robot ahead of schedule to meet manufacturer needs.
SUS Corporation says that ABB’s robots are enabling it to reshore its production and address challenges presented by workforce shortages.
ASTM said the proposed standard will save time for potential users of 3D machine vision by helping them choose the right system.
Agile Robots said it will take over Franka Emika’s operations, keeping its approximately 100-person staff with plans to grow the company.
Universal Robots had strong attendance at its U.S. headquarters open house, which featured presentations, demonstrations, and networking.
Mecalux’s automated solution incorporates Siemens’ SIMATIC Robot Pick AI technology, a vision software that employs deep learning algorithms.
This new ability, which Boston Dynamics calls Multipick, will help to improve the robot’s productivity to keep up with busy warehouses.
Neura Robotics is currently on track to bringing a multi-purpose humanoid robot to the market.
CRA series includes seven cobot arms with a minimum payload of 3 kilograms (around 6.6 lbs) to a maximum payload of 20 kilograms (around 44 lbs) and a working radius of 620 to 1,700 millimeters.
This new facility will increase ABB’s manufacturing capacity for its collaborative and industrial robot arms by 50% and enable it to better serve the European market.
At Universal Robots’ ReAutomated events, businesses will get access to exclusive insights on how automation can improve productivity,
Franka Emika, the German-based developer of the Panda collaborative robot arm, has filed for insolvency due to “irreconcilable shareholder differences.”
Universal Robots’ UR20 cobot is debuting its welding abilities with Vectis Automation, Hirebotics, and Melton Machine & Control Company.
The partnership includes a memorandum of understanding for Doosan Robotics to use Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service for a GPT-based robot control system.
Collaborative Robotics closed a $10M Series A funding round and prepares to scale production, operations and support for initial customers.
