The path toward success in mechanical power transmission today hinges on an organization’s ability to provide smart and digital automation solutions. Customers are looking for system components boasting more performance, precision, and cost effectiveness in robotics and industrial automation applications. Schaeffler, the global technology company specializing in solutions for the automotive and industrial sectors, offers a strong and diverse product range not only for large industrial robots, but also for lightweight and collaborative robots (cobots).
SEW-Eurodrive proves how easy it is to create even highly complex robotic solutions with its MAXOLUTION® parallel arm kinematics kit. You can now configure and order the perfect solution, assemble the components, and easily create complex motion control paths with the MOVIKIT® robotics software module.
Manufacturing is facing constant challenges stemming from labor shortages and disrupted supply chains to productivity declines and the high replacement and maintenance costs of legacy equipment. Trends today include equipment upgrades, e-commerce, a push for more robotics and automation and faster software and IIoT solutions.
Automate 2022 takes place June 6 – 9, 2022 at the Huntington Place Convention Center in Detroit, Michigan to discuss the latest trends and emerging technologies in areas like robotics, automation, mechatronics and motion control.
PTE examines educational and training programs in mechanical power transmission, automation, motion control, robotics and mechatronics regularly in the PTE Revolutions Blog. Today, we're looking at mechatronic training with Festo.
Rollon has unveiled a new digital tool to help engineers design equipment and systems more efficiently. The new ecosystem consists of two core elements: a redesigned corporate website and myRollon — a tool that personalizes product selection.
Bosch Rexroth (Booth #4400) at ATX West will feature interactive exhibits and several working systems demos, including a Smart Function Kit for Handling 3-axis Cartesian robot, as well as a state-of-the-art linear motor transfer system that moves magnetic pallets with speed and accuracy. There will also be a demo of the ctrlX CORE controller, part of the ctrlX AUTOMATION controls and drive platform that makes automation as easy as using a smartphone.
At Ford’s Advanced Manufacturing Center, Javier is tasked with operating the 3D printers completely on his own. He is always on time, very precise in his movements, and he works most of the day – taking only a short break to charge up. This innovative robot on wheels from supplier KUKA, called Javier by Ford’s additive manufacturing operators, is integral to the company’s development of an industry-first process to operate 3D Carbon printers with an autonomous mobile robot rather than a fixed, stationary unit.
Dodge Industrial, Inc. has named David Gilbert as its new president effective immediately. Gilbert joined Dodge nearly 20 years ago and is an experienced manufacturing and operations management leader with proven knowledge and demonstrated results in the industrial automation industry.
