Going to IMTS 2014? Schedule a one-on-one meeting with one of our Automation Specialist during the show.
Midwest Engineering Systems is demonstrating two different cutting edge robot technologies during IMTS 2014. The first demonstration is a Force / Torque controlled system that has been integrated using a KUKA Robot and ATI Sensor. The demonstration highlights force sensors, tight tolerance capabilities, and displays speed / distance data graphs. Visit Midwest Engineering at the KUKA Robotics booth: N-6200. The second demonstration is a Random Robotic Bin Picking system integrated with an ABB Robot. This demonstration highlights random picking with the use of a SICK 3D vision system. Visit Midwest Engineering Systems at the ABB Robotics booth: N-6251
We want to meet with you and show you all the latest technologies in the Robotics and industrial automation industry. Schedule a 15-minute meeting with us, and discover what automation could do for your business!
Force Torque Demonstration
Force / Torque control is one of Kuka’s Hub Technologies. These packages of software and hardware enhance the ability of Kuka robots to perform certain specific applications. This technology, combined with Midwest Engineering System’s integration expertise, allows for precision part alignment, assembly, grinding, buffing, product testing, and many other responsive applications that require a tight/close fit.
Random Robotic Bin Picking Demonstration
Robotic bin picking locates and picks randomly piled parts from a storage bin, using a vision system, robots can verify the correct gripping position to pick the parts out of the bin and move them to a second location. These 3D vision cameras, track, replicate, and map the surrounding bin picking environment.
IMTS 2014 is a premier manufacturing technology show in North America, taking place at McCormick Place complex in Chicago, IL on September 8-13, 2014. 1,900 exhibiting companies with occupy 1.2 Million square feet of exhibit space. Exhibiting companies are in industries such as: metal cutting, tooling & work holding systems, metal forming, & industrial automation. Manufacturing industry professionals from all over the world attend IMTS to see more than 15,000 new machine tools, controls, computers, software, components, robotic systems and processes that can improve their efficiency.
