10 Ways to Think Differently about Robotic Automation
Take another look: A lot is happening in and around robotic automation. What robots might mean for machining and manufacturing is getting ready to change.
Yaskawa Motoman, RAMTEC Enter Educational Partnership
This partnership will support the State of Ohio in creating a highly sustainable workforce development model and will provide Ohio educators and students with STEM-aligned curricula and training in order to become proficient in Industry 4.0 technologies.
Robots and Education Will Help Address Manufacturing Labor Shortage
Part 2: Presenters at a seminar on robotization discuss how collaborative robots and improved college curricula will help address the 2-million-worker gap in manufacturing over the next 10 years.
April 2018 Product Spotlight: Robots and Automation
This month’s Modern Equipment Review Spotlight focuses on robots, handling equipment and other automation products.
Six-Axis Cobot Eliminates Operator Pinch Points
Featuring power and force-limiting technology, Yaskawa Motoman’s six-axis HC10 collaborative robot (cobot) works safely with or near humans by stopping in the event of contact with an operator.
Software Enables Robot Control, Programming Using PLC
The MLX300 software option integrates Yaskawa robots and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) by enabling operators to control and program robots in a standard PLC programming environment, eliminating the need to learn a specific robot programming language.
Video: This Mobile Cobot Frees Machinists from an Inefficient Secondary Process
Otto Motors’ self-driving vehicle combined with Yaskawa Motoman robot arms takes over a tedious manual process that was hanging up Hirotec’s lean manufacturing goals.
The Mobile Cobots Are Coming
Otto Motors, Yaskawa America and Mobile Industrial Robots are stretching the limits of collaborative robotics for the shop floor by adding autonomous mobility.
Robot Cell Simulation Software Reduces Errors, Promotes Efficiency
Yaskawa Motoman’s MotoSim EG-VRC version 5.2 is a comprehensive software package that provides accurate 3D simulation of robot cells.
Controller Promotes Increased Safety, Efficiency
Yaskawa Motoman’s Robotics division offers the DX200 robot controller, which is based on the process capabilities of the previous DX100 controller.
Material Handling Robot Offers Flexibility for Variety of Applications
The flexible MH80 material handling robot from the Motoman Robotics division of Yaskawa America is suitable for a variety of applications, including dispensing and material cutting, in addition to material handling.
This Ribbon Cutting Was a “Sworded” Affair
Motoman Robotics celebrated the grand opening of its newly completed headquarters in Miamisburg with a ribbon-cutting ceremony conducted by one its dual-arm robots—wielding a traditional samurai sword no less!
Vise Rigidity Boosts Robot Cell Output
To automate the fixturing of round machining center components, Haas uses a custom, robot-tended setup incorporating MoveLock vises from Kurt manufacturing. Thanks to these vises’ rigidity, the machine tool builder has doubled the output of its robot cells compared to previous setups.
Extended Reach Arc-Welding Robot
Motoman’s MA3100 “Master Arc” welding robot features an extended-reach arm that is said to reduce the need for tracks.
Does Dexter Really Need a Hard Hat?
A Motoman SDA10D dual-arm robot (nicknamed Dexter Bot) appropriately had the honor of turning the first shovel of dirt at the groundbreaking ceremony for Motoman Robotics’ new facility in Miamisburg, Ohio.
Software Gives Offline Programming “Real” Robot Feel
Motoman’s enhanced graphics simulator, MotoSim EG, is available with virtual robot controller (VRC) capability, which is said to provide accurate 3D simulation of robot cells. With VRC, the software operates and displays the actual programming pendant interface for the NX100 controller. The interface display is the same whether a programmer uses a teach pendant on the controller or uses the software on a PC.
Robotics Provider Names New President
Steve Barhorst has been named the president and chief operating officer of robotics manufacturer Motoman. Mr. Barhorst joined the company as vice president and CFO in August 2000 and became senior vice president and CFO in March 2004. In 2005, he assumed additional responsibility for
Always In The Learning Mode
Finding what works is both a guiding principle and a driving force for this machine tool builder.
Rethinking Robot Anatomy
Actuator-based models offer alternative robot designs.
Robotic Laser System Helps Build Better Bikes
Robotic laser cutting system reduces five step manual cutting process to two steps. Immediate benefits of the robotic laser cutting system are cleaner cuts, consistent parts and reduced labor.
