Multi-Application Robot Arm is 'Child's Play' to Programme

POSTED: 12/28/2012

Traditional robots can substantially boost productivity but generally they are large devices that are application-specific and complex to programme.  They need high production volumes to justify both capital cost and integration time.  For a manufacturer new to robotics this can be off-putting and also uneconomical if products and batch sizes

A Measuring Robot Ensures “Just-in-Time” Assembly

POSTED: 12/28/2012

In automotive supplier Lear Corporation’s demand-led production, robot arms from Universal Robots play a crucial role: The lightweight robots assemble car seats by locating, measuring and tightening screws on car seats resulting in shorter throughput time and greater process reliability. Just-in-time assembly is an established production model in the

Fused 1000 V Test Leads from Multi-Contact Assist Operator Safety

POSTED: 10/25/2012

UL approved test leads are terminated with 4 mm diameter plugs for connecting standard safety test clips and probes to enable safe, fuse-protected measurements. They accept 6.3 x 32 mm UK style fuses, which can be fitted by unscrewing 2 part connector. Available with PVC/silicone insulation, leads are fitted with

Magnetic Adapters Accelerate Safe Connection of Test Leads

POSTED: 10/25/2012

Used where clamping is not possible, magnetic adapters safely attach test leads onto screw heads. Adapter tip consists of bar magnet between 2 steel poles for optimal adhesion, and slightly concave shape of magnetic tip ensures optimal contact. Two versions are available, with 7 or 11 mm dia magnets, and

The Modular Power Connector (MPC) from Multi-Contact Combines up to 15 Single-pole Power Contacts

POSTED: 10/25/2012

The great advantage is obvious: the modular design permits the construction of application-specific plug connectors with standard modules. Fixed mounting dimensions with variable assembly configuration simplify structural integration. That reduces costs for logistics, warehousing and service. Applications can be found in regional rail, subways and streetcars, but also

Staubli robots provide the ideal solution for injection moulding specialists

POSTED: 06/06/2012

The integration of multi-axis robots within the trade injection moulding sector is gaining pace as moulders increasingly realise the benefits of automation. Frequently, an initial reluctance to adopt multi-axis robot solutions stems from partial appreciation of the cost/benefit profile achievable by using the latest automation equipment. One of the first injection

Six axis robots benefit plastic molders

POSTED: 05/30/2012

Plastic injection moulders are increasingly adding value to their activities by incorporating additional operations such as in mould decoration, insert loading and finishing/assembly activities into the basic demolding cycle. These extra tasks are changing the traditional approach that the sector has taken to automation and in particular to the selection
