Automation, robotics and collaborative robots on MSV 2018
The INTERNATIONAL MACHINE FAIR takes place in Nitra and we were kindly invited to be part of it thanks to fellow company SCHUNK Intec s.r.o. In the fair were introduced the current trends in automation and robotics . That’s why we showed to our customers collaborative robot and industrial robot applications. E.g. one of the applications was to use a collaborative robot from Universal Robots. The robot was like a sticker, using a SCHUNK force – torque sensor from robot to search for objects in the workspace and store them in a defined position. Another application was a FANUC collaborative robot, a standard demonstration of FANUC’s Robodrill CNC machine’s loading and unloading application, and this type of automation is more and more popular with smaller companies due to the rising cost of human labor.
