  • Air spring key to robot handler
    Custom actuators, pneumatic clamps, and seal software are among the topics covered in the pneumatics reference guide. A robotic arm developed by Luzenac America relies on air springs to grip and handle bags of talc. Designing a robotic arm to handle 50-lb packages of talc powder was an engineer's
  • Automacad Concrete Lends A Helping Arm to Concrete Production
    Automacad Concrete (Québec, Canada) designed an automated conveying system equipped with an ABB industrial articulated robot to pick and place hardened concrete. Automacad worked with ifm efector (Exton, PA) to equip the ABB robot with vacuum sensors, pneumatic controls and the AS-i networking
  • Bump and grind
    can absorb the crash and reset itself with minimal downtime. , Apex, N.C., prevents costly damage to robotic end-effectors. The device fits between the robot arm and the tooling. It adjusts to support typical loads the robot arm experiences in all directions including angular, compression
  • No More Spaghetti, Please
    Integrated robot dress packs, or umbilicals, combine power and data cables, as well as pneumatic and hydraulic hoses, into a single protective jacket. The units are slowly replacing conventional "spaghetti " methods of dressing industrial robots with loose bundles of individual cables and hoses
  • Open Network Eliminates Tray-Loader Wiring Problems
    that accepts stacks of trays from carts. An elevator transfers the top tray in the stack. A robotic arm empties or fills the tray, and the completed tray then moves to a restack station. Previous generations of the machine were hardwired. Each discrete input -- hundreds of them -- required a cable
