How are we doing in the COVID-19 crisis and what might the future look like for robotics and advanced manufacturing?

How are we doing in the COVID-19 crisis and what might the future look like for robotics and advanced manufacturing?

To start, an executive round table happened on Wednesday, September 9th, called “The State of the Global Robotics Industry” at RIA Robotics Week (Link here if you want to watch it). It was an interesting talk about the past couple of months, the current and most importantly the future of advanced manufacturing and robotics. I thought it was great to hear the opinions of some important names of the automation industry.  (If you haven’t watched the round table, feel free to read the summary I

Actuators for Adding a Seventh Axis to Your Robotic System

Actuators for Adding a Seventh Axis to Your Robotic System

Adding a seventh axis to your six-axis robotic system can be beneficial in a number of ways. Your work envelope is expanded, allowing the use of smaller, less-expensive robots. Parts can also be transferred to multiple workstations at greater distances, and more machines and processes are able to be serviced with one robot, which reduces costs. Although the idea of using a linear actuator to move a robot into position sounds simple enough, many factors go into making sure the setup is corre
