Amada Miyachi America, Inc., a manufacturer of resistance welding, laser welding, marking, cutting, and micro machining equipment and systems, announces it offers complete local product and sales support for the DC1013-T and DC613-T Series of linear DC resistance spot welding power supplies, manufactured by our sister company MacGregor.




SCHUNK has expanded its portfolio with two swivel modules for automation, ushering in a new era of rotary motion. Reason enough to question where we are heading for, when it comes to rotary and swivel units, and the hidden potentials.




For human beings and robots to be able to work harmoniously in communal machining areas without any separating protective barrier, strict safety requirements have to be complied with. In short, no collisions that might harm the human being or damage machinery may occur.




Festo’s new all-in-one YJKP modular servo press kit is the essence of simplicity. This economical unit delivers a high level of precision and repetition accuracy for an excellent price/performance ratio. Each YJKP comes pre-assembled and pre-tested.




 PBSI Schunk modular 400

One single turn of the tightening screw is sufficient for secure connection of clamping modules, either with one another or with the corresponding basic modules.

FLIR Systems, Inc.introduces FLIR Thermal Studio, a thermal image analysis and reporting software designed to manage large sets of thermal images and videos.




The compact, mechatronic 24 V gripper for small components type SCHUNK EGB with IO-link allows flexible processes during a fast-paced Pick & Place. It is based on the tried-and-tested SCHUNK EGP, and scores with a high speed and high gripping force. In the version with IO-Link, the electric gripper for small components satisfies the IO-Link Class B Standard suitable for increased power consumption, and can be directly connected with an IO-Link Class B Master.




POSITAL is introducing a new family of absolute rotary encoders for servomotors, stepper motors, robot joints and anywhere else a hollow center design is needed to achieve an optimal mechanical layout. Both single and multi-turn variants are available; for multi-turn models, the rotation counter is self-powered, using POSITAL’s Wiegand energy-harvesting technology.




With the most popular Ball Screw Assemblies now available in four new sizes, constructors can tailor drives and linear motion systems even more precisely in order to achieve optimum dynamics.





How can collaborative handling scenarios be implemented in non-structured environments? SCHUNK has looked into this question in cooperation with KUKA and Roboception. In a technology study, the three companies show how bin picking can succeed in collaborative operation quickly, simply and efficiently.
