According to an article in Usine Nouvelle, the robotics market largely picked up in 2010 as opposed to 2009. Growth is very strong especially in industrial robotics. The large crowds at the Automatica 2010 exhibition in Germany confirmed the trend. Robotization in German is also stronger than in countries like France for example. The International […]

Watch the speed and accuracy of this industrial robotic arm. Developed by MIMIX Motion, this Delta (a parallelogram) robot has 4 axes that converge into one where the gripper is located. The latter always stays correctly orientated in the same way thanks to 4 arms (we talk about a parallel robot.) In the video below, […]

The manufacturer of the Kuka industrial robotic arm has unveiled a mobile platform with open interfaces and open source software. It’s a first: a manufacturer of industrial robots heading towards consumer robotics. The arm has a multidirectional mobile platform, a hand with 5 degrees of freedom and two fingers for gripping. KUKA, a giant in […]

The company, Adept, a leader in industrial robotics has just acquired MobileRobots Inc, a specialist in mobile robotics. This is a significant take-over because it’s unusual. MobileRobots, a New Hampshire company with annual revenues of 5 million dollars, provides autonomous robot and self-guided vehicle solutions. Adept, with this acquisition, will be able to increase the […]

The German Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics has run some experiments on man-machine collisions. Here, it’s rather a case of a Kuku robotic arm against a mannequin head (the same as those you see in car crash-tests). This type of experiment enables the development of anti-collision and safety mechanisms to be implemented in industrial robots […]

Warehouse robots that help with the packing and stacking of sugar bags, it’s a lot faster than “arms”. At first glance, these bags of sugar must weigh about 50 kg each. You can imagine the effort spent by workers on carrying out a similar type of loading. Featured in this video, industrial robots by Kawasaki […]

The video below shows three industrial robots in the process of sorting and placing salami of the Peperami brand (mini pepperoni). The speed of execution enables an increase in productivity of +25% compared to the work being done by a human chain. The FlexPicker by ABB Robotics can pick up three mini sausages at a […]
