Industrial Robotics Case Studies
Installing a Universal Robot to pick metal parts out of a press brake solved several automation headaches at Etalex; a Canadian manufacturer of shelving systems that had no room for safety guarding in front of the press and needed a flexible user-friendly robot that could safely handle the pick and place tasks in a high traffic area.
Hackensches Quartier, in Berlin, Germany, opted for the Pilz automation system PSS 4000 to monitor their fire protection system.
Client Profile: Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a global research university with campuses located in Pittsburgh, Qatar and Silicon Valley.
ISO 13849-1 IN ACTION: Plastics Unlimited in Preston, Iowa For most people, the coming of a new year means new resolutions.
Traditional robots can substantially boost productivity but generally they are large devices that are application-specific and complex to programme.
Hearing device manufacturer Oticon needed a more flexible robot to handle the tiny hearing device components in its production.
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.
Business needs – Background A manufacturer of electric vehicle conversions offering a wide range of products, from small cars to large busses.
Part of modular CombiTac connector system, contact carriers are available for Ethernet cabling and field bus systems.
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.
AxiClamp has connector body with solid metal cone that clamps copper cable strands against internal taper on metal sleeve.
Compatible with all oscilloscopes, Isoprobe® III high-frequency (250-500 MHz) test probes have coaxial connecting cable with low capacitance.
Used where clamping is not possible, magnetic adapters safely attach test leads onto screw heads.
The great advantage is obvious: the modular design permits the construction of application-specific plug connectors with standard modules.
As a customer-specific solution, Multi-Contact has developed fully shielded connectors for power supply with frequency converters, e.
