Robot Developments for Automotive Applications
Spot welding continues to be a major application area in automotive and robot manufacturers are improving the tech to make that happen as efficiently as possible.

A vision-guided Yaskawa robot picks an actuator assembly from a bin.

Robotic Bin Picking Made Simple(r)
The result of “thinking inside the bin,” is a design featuring a six-axis Yaskawa robot, an IFM Effector 200 photoelectric distance-measuring sensor, and, mounted to an IAI servo-driven slide, a Cognex In-Sight 8000 camera. 

The HC10. Yes, it is a cobot.

Cobots and Other Robotic Arms
Collaborative robots—which are perhaps best known by the blended “cobots”—are gaining plenty of attention.

Collaborative Robots: What You Should Know
The touch-sensitive, safety-minded devices occupy a growing niche as manufacturers find new, truly collaborative applications.

New SCARA from Fanuc provides speed and precision.

Robotics Today
A look at some of the new automation technology that can improve productivity.

The hollow wrist of the MPX3500 allows hoses to run through it, thereby eliminating the interference of hoses with the workpiece, which is important in painting operations.

What a Hollow Robot Wrist Means for Painting
Yaskawa Motoman (motoman.com) has developed a new six-axis robot, the MPX3500, specifically designed for painting and coating operations.

What’s New in Assembly Technology?
Robotic companies have been focusing on the ways and means to make robots more effective and efficient, providing better quality, faster cycle times, and easier implementation.

Advancing Assembly
Some developments of interest in the area of putting things together.

Looking at Some Robot Tech
If you were to see the actual version of this, the MotoEye LT laser seam-tracking device for tracking weld joints at high speed and in real time from the Motoman Robotics Div. of Yaskawa America (motoman.com), you wouldn’t see that red triangle emerging from the bottom of the camera, the SF-D camera from Servo-Robot.

Real Real Steel
Here are some pieces of factory automation that can make a big difference in your assembly operations. They’re the real deal.

Rethinking Robotic Deployment
Put away your spreadsheets of specifications and start thinking about process advantages that can be realized through the application of robots.

Robotic Assembly: Simpler, Faster
Here is a brief look at some of the tech that can facilitate your mechanical assembly operations.

De-Commoditizing the Robot
When your products are considered to be fairly fungible with those of your competitors, you can make incremental improvements and hope they are sufficient or you can take a bigger risk and try to make a big difference. The latter is what the people at Motoman selected.

Robotic Quartet: Digital & Real
Among some of the newer products being offered by robot companies are software-based systems, which shouldn't be too surprising nowadays. Of course, work beyond manipulating digital information still needs to get accomplished, so there is also new iron...

The Control Difference
When many people think about a robot, the arm is the thing that comes to mind.

Virtually Assembled
Long gone are the days of providing "best guess" assembly plans. Today's virtual reality-based software systems provide a way to assemble components and correct mistakes before a part is even prototyped.
