IMPORTANCE OF THE MACHINE TOOL

Those who seek solutions and alternatives for the productivity of their factory in times of crisis find benefits in new technologies, covering needs such as high production demand, labor shortages, delivery periods, etc. Machine tools make it possible to produce interchangeable components at low cost for use in anything For the years to come it is expected that advances related to the concept of automation such as hardware and software research will allow the machine tool industry to experience developments in the following areas. Artificial Intelligence (AI): The use of AI to program machines will grow, especially in large-scale industrial…

G-CODES FOR PROGRAMMING FANUC CNC ROBOTS

FANUC introduces a new feature that allows FANUC CNCs to program robots directly using G-code. The latter feature helps to unify robot and CNC programming, while reducing operator instruction. Through the quick and simple start of FANUC robotization, FANUC CNCs can now monitor linked FANUC robots providing machine care or other assistance (QSSR). The principle of programming robots with GCODE is innovative. This feature simplifies FANUC robot programming for CNC operators. The FANUC QSSR is a complete kit for connecting a FANUC robot to a FANUC controlled machine tool. The new QSSR G code feature enables machine tool operators and…

CANADIANS RECOVER THE PAST WITH FUTURE TECHNOLOGY

When Ottawa, Ontario, was selected as the capital of the then province of Canada in 1857, it was necessary to find a site for the buildings that would house Parliament. The highest point in the city, a steep hill overlooking the mighty Ottawa River, was chosen by the powers that be. Despite being over 149 years old, Canada’s Parliament buildings needed renovation, a role that was developed by industrial robots (Kuka Robotics Canada, a subsidiary of Kuka Roboter GmbH in Germany), especially the ornamentation part. . Allowing the rehabilitation of the three buildings. The use of digital fabrication for the…

OUT OF ORDER A LED PENDANT LAMP PRINTED BY AN ABB ROBOT

This is the concept behind Out of Order, a folding LED lamp designed by Dutch studio BCXSY and Atelier Robotiq, a Rotterdam-based company that uses industrial robotics to create lighting fixtures and furniture. Off Duty is dedicated to evoking the outcome of an uncontrollable computing mind. Out of Order has a tubular body composed of a network of delicately woven fibers. They were made by an ABB industrial robot programmed to rotate the resin reinforcing wire around the mandrel. However, midway through the spinning process, the pattern began to deform in unexpected and increasingly random ways. The twist lines are…

A SCULPTURE WITH A LOT OF COLOR BY EMILY FLOYD “POLL”

Renowned Australian sculptor Emily Floyd, graduated in sculpture from RMIT University in 1999. She is one of Australia’s most famous contemporary artists. From Australia’s National Gallery to London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, it is found in the collections of various institutions with extremely rich concepts, visually dramatic and often text-based creations, and pedagogically inspired works that combine formal concerns with an interest in the legacies of modernism. Her work encompasses a wide range of disciplines and works, including public art and social activities, design and format, literary and cultural studies, community participation and public education, and various political ideologies. To…

ROBOTIC ICE CREAM!

The NISKA team the first ice cream parlor in Australia with exclusive Robots staff has opened an exclusive Melbourne ice cream bar on Fed Square in Melbourne CBD. Where three robotic assistants serve ice cream; Pepper, Eka and Tony. NISKA is a technology start-up, operated and registered in Australia. All of our development, advancement, testing and design operations are conducted in Australia. Niska Co-Founder and CEO Kate Orlova mentioned that the company was committed to modifying the retail experience in Australia, and that this ice cream bar is the first to teach the technology. Orlova said, “her robots were not…

INITIATIVE, TECHNOLOGY AND TALENT TOGETHER

Merritt Moore a distinguished ballet dancer who has participated in the Norwegian National Ballet, the Boston Ballet, and the English National Ballet. She also studied quantum physics at the University of Oxford obtaining a doctorate. Knowledge that during the pandemic allowed the design of a solution to be able to comply with social distancing and at the same time to continue developing her ballet routines, she acquired a new robotic companion called “Baryshnibot”. For this new artistic experiment she chose to use a collaborative robot or cobot. The initiative arose after taking a course at Harvard ArtLab that dealt with…

AUGMENTUS SOFTWARE FACILITATES ROBOTIC PROGRAMMING

When we seek to automate our production lines, we seek practical and flexible solutions. Programming an industrial robot regardless of the task like classifying objects or moving them generally requires thousands of lines of code. and this same coding process must be carried out each time the robot needs to be configured for each process, which generates more expenses. is what the Singapore-based start-up Augmentus is trying to develop dedicated to helping companies integrate new software without code allows anyone, even those with no robotics experience or programming skills, to develop, implement and reuse systems robotics in no time. Augmentus,…

TWO COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS MOTIVATED BY MUSIC TO DESIGN A CERAMIC PIECE

Creativity has no limits, many artists have found a perfect tool to take their works to another level, technology and art together have managed to design and promote different artistic areas and shows where a robotic arm is included. For a while we have seen how robots, artificial and digital intelligence have been incorporated into different creations, in this case the protagonist and inspirer is the UR10e universal robots collaborative robot. The versatility of these cobots allows them to adapt to the environment, performing more safely, efficiently and precisely the movements to adjust to the requirements of a good interaction….

ROBOTS ABB ROBOTSTUDIO 3D PRINTING

Industrial 3D printing or additive manufacturing is a system that seeks to help manufacturers adapt automation with new technologies to products taking into account market variations and costs. The application of this type of technology brings advantages such as: Minimum use of materials and efficient use of energy Lower costs of integration, assembly and efficient use of space Acquisition of new technologies Customization of products Greater productive demand. ABB Robotics has applied this additive manufacturing concept by adding enhancements to its RobotStudio simulation and offline programming PowerPac software, including 3D printing capabilities. PowerPac ABB software transforms different models of cutting…
