In tough economic times it is even more important to find efficient, cost effective ways to improve assembly processes and to make sure they save you time and money.
The main purpose of a gripper is to securely handle a workpiece, eventually releasing it after a move or process. There are many factors that should be considered when selecting the proper gripper for a given application. We will focus on the grip force aspect.
Robotic tool changers provide flexibility to robotic applications by enabling the robot to change end-effectors automatically (e.g.; grippers, vacuum cup tooling, pneumatic and electric motors, weld guns, etc.).
Configuring adhesive dispensing equipment with a robot to apply the material correctly on every product can improve delivery and save production costs.
Tabletop dispensing robots are an efficient way to increase both output and quality in assembly processes where fluids like adhesives, lubricants, and silicones must be applied in controlled, repeatable amounts.
The handling modules HSP and HSW are a new generation of high speed function modules for the automatic transfer, feed, and removal of small parts in confined spaces.
CLEMSON, SC—Engineering students at Clemson University have designed a flexible machine that automatically installs O-rings.
Carbon-fiber reinforced composites are popular in the aerospace and marine industries as a lightweight alternative to aluminum, steel and other metals. The material is also used to produce railcars, wind turbine blades and sporting goods.
Industrial fabric curtain walls are growing in popularity. In assembly plants, two of the fastest-growing applications are for lowering noise levels and controlling dust.
