Functional safety
A safety related control function is one of the measures that makes a contribution to the overall reduction of risk with machinery. As digitalisation and automation progress, so electrical, electronic or programmable electronic systems (E/E/PES) are used increasingly in the field of safety (more...)
Smart automation
Mark Gray of Universal Robots tackles fears surrounding smart automation and artificial intelligence. The concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and smart automation are being thrown around more and more frequently in the manufacturing sector. These are divisive in nature and have led to the (more...)
Trust igus for low cost automation
The ‘spinning jenny’ is hailed as revolutionising the weaving industry, spinning multiple balls of yarn at the same time. Speed is still our industry’s most pressing requirement today – the higher the production rate, the lower the cost per unit. As such, igus continues to (more...)
Robots take their pick in plastic moulding application
A Mitsubishi Electric robot, PLC and HMI combination has provided PCE Automation with an ideal solution for its latest take-out system for plastic injection stretch blow moulding (ISBM) machinery. The MK5 which also supports integrated leak testing of plastic containers is based on a Q-series PLC, a (more...)
British made robots already helping UK manufacturers
British robotics manufacturer Automata says it has addressed the two primary issues that have limited uptake of robots in the UK, namely cost and ease of integration, with the launch of Eva – a robotic arm that is easy to use and costs just £4,990. Off the back of $7.4m in funding, and (more...)
Getting a grip in the automotive industry
Additively manufactured gripper fingers have opened up new possibilities for a supplier of robotic handling systems within the automotive industry, with reduced design time, increased speed of delivery of the grippers and a lower item price. With around 300 employees, German company ROS (more...)
New additions bring greater robot dexterity
New from RARUK Automation are two Robotiq innovations designed to make automated and even lights out production even easier. The first, Force Copilot, is an intuitive software development for applications that need force torque feedback and the other is the Hand-E gripper specifically developed for (more...)
Robotic milking machine boosts farming efficiency
An innovative hybrid electromechanical and pneumatic robotic arm, delivered as a preassembled unit, is at the heart of a new automated milking machine which offers increased efficiency and reliability, with smooth movement and high performance. It is reckoned that by 2050, farms will need to (more...)
Robot arms are getting everywhere
Recent developments are opening new opportunities and catapulting the industrial robot arm into a journey around the production environment. Robots undoubtably take the drudgery out of many repetitive manufacturing, packaging and processing tasks. Engineers are generally fascinated by the idea of (more...)
In the future you’ll be talking to your robots
Automation has always lent itself to the manufacture of mass produced disposable medical devices and the bulk processing of samples – for two main reasons; initially for speed and repeatability, and then because human presence poses one of the biggest contamination risks in a clean production (more...)
