There is no denying the fact that industrial robots are bringing faster throughput, energy savings, lowers costs, and a more consistent quality product to production floors across the globe. The robotic market is expected to continue to grow at exponential rates, quickly becoming enveloped in smart software, sensors, and EOATs, and expected to reach around $135 billion by 2019.
…and the Oscar goes to Kyle Tannyhill and Brian Schrote for their work in the Tri-Rivers Career Center commercial! Ok… Maybe it’s not that serious, but we think it’s pretty cool that Kyle and Brian will be featured on local TV. Tri-Rivers Career Center chose Kyle and Brian as features graduates because they continued to work locally in Marion after finishing school. Kyle and Brian both took courses through Tri-Rivers as seniors in high school.
We’ve done it so much, it's almost a tradition! After donating a few robot arms to COSI (Center of Science and Industry) in Columbus, Ohio, RobotWorx has given a presentation/demonstration at the central Ohio science museum’s Robot Science Day for the last three years.Our general manager John Messaros presented a slide show for visitors to the exhibit.
Marysville USFIRST Robotics Club, one of the robot teams RobotWorx supports, got to run their robot through its paces at the Buckeye Regional FIRST Robotics Competition.More than 1,400 high school students participated in the event, held April 7-9 at the Cleveland State University Wolstein Center.
RobotWorx is proud to support the IEEE at UIC Robotics Team. This academic year, the group of college students designed, built, and entered a robot in the Jerry Sanders Design Competition. They returned from the college design competition inspired and ready to build an even better entry for next year.
Six weeks. That's all the time Marysville, Ohio USFIRST Robotics Club (FRC) had to build a robot from scratch. Not only was the group of 21 high school students able to accomplish this feat, they learned a lot in the process. Now they are ready to face a new challenge - an upcoming USFIRST competition. Marysville FRC will compete in the Buckeye Regional FRC competition held April 7-9 in Cleveland, Ohio. RobotWorx is a strong advocate of STEM and robotics education.
A spider robot with eyes? Cool! The interactive Fanuc M-1iA demo RobotWorx brought to the COSI Columbus Robot Science Day proved an immense success. Kids and adults alike enjoyed watching the M-1iA assembly robot's adroit movements. Robot Science Day Video The event's coordinator, Faculty Leader for Special Programs Joan Harless noticed the impact the robot had on visitors.
The IEEE Robotics Team at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) has taken on a serious design challenge. They're building a robot to compete in the 24th annual Jerry Sanders Design Competition (JSDC). Held in March, the JSDC brings college design teams together for two days of intense robot battling. This year's challenge involves Nerf balls! RobotWorx is proud to be a IEEE at UIC Robotics Team sponsor.
Learning and teaching robot programming is straightforward with FANUC's portable cart.The FANUC Robotics CERT Mobile Training Cart provides everything you need for training staff or students: hardware, software, a portable cart, plus the robot. It arrives completely assembled and ready to use. A 110 volt transformer allows the cart to be plugged in virtually anywhere - whether you're in a classroom or out on the shop floor.
Mark your calendars! The first-ever National Robotics Week takes place April 10-18 and it's not something you want to miss!The goal of National Robotics Week is to educate and excite the general public about the current and future impact of robotics. A host of museums, organizations, and businesses are celebrating with robot-related events, open houses, and competitions.
