Move heavy parts, components and material quickly and confidently with two Harrington Hoists models: the TCK Series and lube-free TCL Series. Cast iron housing ensures strength and durability; adjustable limiter automatically blocks air flow when an overload is detected.
Gorbel’s G-Force and Easy Arm intelligent lifting devices (ILDs) bridge the gap between traditional lifting solutions and completely automated robotic solutions. They provide a combination of pinpoint precision and speed that hoists and air balancers can’t achieve.
With a compact design that consumes 40% less space, Flexlink’s RI20 can be relocated in a few hours and used in multiple lines in a single day. Meanwhile, operators and robots can safely coexist on the production floor.
The increased demand in the cut-to-size sheet segment was making storage space tight at AMCO Metal Service GmbH’s premises in Germany – then they discovered KASTO’s Unigrip 3.0 storage system that increased productivity and fast access to materials and finished parts.
A robotic system is ‘collaborative’ only if all elements – robot, tooling, workpiece, and work area – meet international safety standards. Depending on application, you may be able to turn a standard industrial robot into a cobot and comply.
The German industrial robot manufacturer and automation solutions provider plans to introduce a robot with the largest work envelope in the medium-payload-class to the North American market and an online service portal during the International Manufacturing Technology Show in September.
An upgrade to the CSD-300 twin-spindle lathe, the front-facing CSD-300II from Fuji Machine America is more robust and loaded with new-or-improved features for faster and easier operation than its predecessor.
Gotta move a press brake, machining center, or any other piece of equipment that’s less than 40 feet long? AeroGo’s all-in-one rigging kit ensures safe transfer using compressed air and lightweight overlays.
The Arm-Pull from Industrial Magnetics, Inc. builds on the company’s successful Foot Pull concept this spring – now everyone in your building can reduce germ spread by using their arm to open swing-style doors.
Compatible with robotics, Teqram’s EasyFlipper uses pneumatically powered tables to turn large, heavy parts upside down in a mere five seconds, a fraction of the time when using cranes and crowbars. Best of all, it takes employees out of harm’s way.
Machine tending steps into a new playing field with Universal Robot’s ActiNav, where pick and place accuracy exceeds dropping into a box. With minimal operator intervention, parts are inserted into a fixture for their next step in the processing journey.
The OB7-Stretch from Productive Robotics extends 1.25 meters, but with a payload of 4kg, it offers an affordable alternative to bigger-payload, long-reach cobots. Its seven axes design gives it a dexterity with which to circumvent obstacles.
Amid Challenges, Majority of Metalformers Predict Little Change in Economic Activity
U.S and Canadian incoming orders expected to remain steady, according to the latest barometer reading from the Precision Metalforming Association.
U.S. Manufacturing Grows in September –– PMI Dips 0.6% to 55.4
The Institute for Supply Management reports that among the six biggest industries, food, beverage & tobacco remains the best-performing sector, with fabricated metal and chemical products growing strongly.
