Optimax Systems and PickNik Robotics have made available a ROS 2 controller for ABB manipulators. An ABB IRB 1200-5/0.9 manipulator has been used to test the package. For simulation in ROS, you can fake the ros2 controllers in the first mode. The controller can also be interfaced with ABB’s unique RobotStudio software. The new ABB
ABB STANDS OUT AS A SOLUTION COVERING A WIDE RANGE OF PICK AND PLACE APPLICATIONS WITH THE NEW DELTA FLEXPICKER IRB 365 ROBOT.
ABB has added to its Delta FlexPicker line of robots with the new IRB 365, a 5-axis robot with a payload capacity of up to 1.5 kg. Miniature packages and other packaged products such as biscuits, chocolates or small bottles, among others, can be handled with ease thanks to its speed of up to 120
Yaskawa has introduced the new Motoman HC30PL collaborative robot, which can lift up to 30 kg and has a reach of 1,700 mm (from the centre of rotation of the S/L axis to the centre of rotation of the R/T axis). Because it can be used immediately within its area of operation without the need
The sealants are applied at Ford via a KUKA LBR iiwa cobot. Without the requirement for safety fences, it works alongside human workers and provides relief during the work process. Workers at Ford’s Cologne plant benefit from the adaptability, sensitivity and learning ability of the lightweight KUKA LBR iiwa robot. According to Michael Koch, production
Having the potential to increase profits for producers around the world, the “Seventh Axis” is a phenomenon in the field of robotic automation. Robotics is seeing an increase in the use of “linear tracks”. A linear transfer system known as a seventh axis is used to move robots along another linear (or seventh) axis. These
A solid-state joining technique called friction stir welding creates full contact joints with exceptional integrity. There is no need for external filler materials, flux or shielding gases for friction stir welding. All in-process control and quality control is automated, the process is fully repeatable and machine controlled. How does it work? When two workpieces rotate
To help companies address the welder shortage, ABB has introduced OmniVance FlexArc Compact, a new, more compact welding system with greater flexibility, simplicity and better integration. This revolutionary system helps fabricators maximise space because it occupies the smallest footprint in its class. It also allows flexibility because it can accommodate up to four additional robots
It is characterised by its “high speed and handling of large and heavy payloads”. The Yaskawa Motoman GP70L extended reach robot is highly adaptable and provides fast and robust performance for a variety of applications. This model is suitable for logistics processes, such as palletising and depalletising, because of its reach, speed and payload capacity.
Through the monitoring of important assets and the elimination of repetitive and routine tasks, the integration of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) has helped companies to better regulate their operations. Traditionally, IT and OT have been created independently, making it impossible to use operations and production data for better workflow optimisation and well-planned
Universal Robots‘ goal is to increase access to industrial robot technology for small and medium-sized enterprises. As of 2020, Universal Robots will have more than 700 employees worldwide and an annual turnover of more than $200 million, making it the market leader in the production of flexible collaborative robot equipment. Three Danish engineers started it
