Built for multi-axis pick-and-place systems in assembly environments, dispensing operations in the medical industry and material handling in the packaging industry, these modules are now available in 200mm wide extrusion, using two Size 25 Ball Rail Systems. Both models can take up to 9100kg (20,000 lbs). The CKK module, using the Rexroth Ball Screw, has a stroke length of 5500mm, while the CKR compact has a distance up to 10,000mm at speeds up to 5m/s, using a steel-reinforced polyurethane belt with aluminum pulleys. The compact model's clamps mount to almost any baseplate or surface, while the Ball Rail guides make for smooth travel along the axis. Its aluminum extrusion makes for less deflection.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
