DUNCAN, S.C. - Stäubli will showcase its robotic solutions, in two different locations within International Manufacturing Technology Show, September 10-15, 2018, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.
The Metrologic Group with Staubli Robotics will illustrate the first of its kind Coordinate Measuring Robot (CMR) combines Metrolog X4 i-Robot –Metrologic Group’s robot-dedicated 3D measurement software built on over 35 years of expertise in 3D error mapping and compensation with Stäubli’s 6-axis TX2-60. The partnership allows the highly efficient mechanical robots developed by Stäubli achieving +/-100-micron accuracy in touch trigger mode, in a 1 cubic meter volume, and +/- 150-micron in optical laser scanning mode. As all the Metrologic Group’s software suite does, the CMR can accommodate any kind of touch probe or optical sensor, of any make. Stop by Metrologic Group’s booth #135653, east building to learn more about CMR.
Aquarese, a Shape Technologies Group company, will be demonstrating with Staubli Robotics several of their advanced applications including waterjet stripping, a coating removal process, waterjet blasting, an investment cast ceramic shell removal process, abrasive waterjet cutting, and high pressure waterjet deburring. Aquarese is a leading supplier of advanced waterjet manufacturing process solutions to Aerospace, Automotive, Defense, Semiconductor, and Energy markets. Aquarese will display at sister company Flow Internationals booth #236207.
Staubli Robotics prides itself in working with only the highest quality partners. Both The Metrologic Group and Aquarese join Staubli Robotics SMART technologies to today’s fast paced, high productive manufacturing environments illustrated at IMTS 2018.
