Imagine trying to successfully navigate through an urban area for the first time – waiting at a crosswalk, finding the right streets, and trying to not get lost in the process. Now, imagine trying to do it blind. It makes a difficult situation seem almost impossible, right? Maybe not for long. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s TechBridgeWorld are trying to figure out how to make the world more accessible to the blind.
Companies are always looking to speed up their processes. In fact, that is why so many companies choose to switch to integrated automation for their production. Dispensing is one of many industrial processes manufacturers are looking to speed up. Now, ABB has given them a way to enhance the speed of dispensing applications three times faster than ever before – the ABB Integrated Dispensing Function Package.
RobotWorx, a Marion, Ohio robotics integrator of new and reconditioned robot systems and work cells, continued its tradition of contributing to the community by turning robot sales into charitable donations for the military families of fallen and seriously injured heroes. The management team wanted to organize a patriotic sales event and decided to donate $250 of every robot sold between Memorial Day and Independence Day to the Fallen Patriots Fund.
Ever since the first robot entered a factory in the 1960s, robotics has continued to move forward. This progress has not only changed the functionality of the robots but has also changed the way industrial operations are performed. In early July 2015, Keith Wanner, President of RobotWorx, addressed Scott Technology and RobotWorx’ employees about where this industrial robotic progression is moving now and in the future.
Over the last few years, the robotic market in North American has been continuing to tick upwards, often breaking records for robot sales. This has continued into 2015’s first quarter, when industrial robot orders and shipment records have broken 2014’s record. According to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), a total of 6,895 robots, valued at approximately $435.
