Robotic Industries Association publishes Robotics Online which provides information to help engineers, managers and executives apply and justify robotics and flexible automation. The site includes a proprietary search engine algorithm that makes it easy to find and compare leading companies, products and services. Robotics Online is dedicated to news, articles and information specifically for the robotics industry.
RIA members contribute content, serve as experts for “Ask the Experts" and guide the Association with input from committees and volunteers that help write robot standards and technical reports. Publications, including safety standards and risk assessment software, are available from the online bookstore.
Founded in 1974, RIA is the only trade group in North America organized specifically to serve the robotics industry. Member companies include leading robot manufacturers, users, system integrators, component suppliers, research groups, and consulting firms.
Introduction: Previous research [1, 2] had confirmed our ability to control motion with
Introduction Advantages of using robots in material handling applications include speed, payload capacity and consistent productivity. Increases in throughput are typically necessary to keep pace with production demands without installing additional robot cells. The techniques presented here will enable you to attain higher productivity from a given amount of floorspace
Abstract A novel closed loop track based multi-head robot has been developed to increase material handing throughput. This robot allows for waves of autonomous robot heads to move materials in the working path by eliminating the traditional return path. This is advantageous for the singulation of product from bulk, for
Recently, you may have referenced materials for the purchase of clamps, including viewing the product specifications. You found that the data for clamps varied company to company. So, you ask, when is a 1000-lb. holding capacity clamp really a 1000 lb. holding capacity clamp? And, how is holding capacity defined?
Due to the unique dynamics of stand up pouches, case and/or tray packing of stand up pouches is dependent on engineering, marketing, shipping, financing and more. [Exhibit - Corporate Structure] Engineering is concerned with providing a means to efficiently, quickly and flexibly pack stand up pouches into shipping containers using
Today's plastic components, especially in the automotive industry, are becoming more and more complex. The enormous possibilities that these plastic materials offer have been recognized by the designer, and are being used more than ever before. This has created components that can no longer be processed economically with conventional cutting
Presence sensing mats combined with a safety mat controller improve productivity while providing access guarding. Less downtime occurs because it is not necessary to set up or remove mechanical safety barriers during operation and maintenance. Presence sensing mats and controls are used where perimeter access guarding is required, such as around
When a risk assessment shows that a machine or process carries a risk of injury the hazard must be eliminated or contained. How this is done will depend on the nature of the machine and the hazard. In basic terms this means preventing any access to the relevant parts while
