Five minute robot programming

01.04.2008
AUTOMATICA 2008
10-13 June 2008
Neue Messe München
Hall B2, Booth 538
Robot programming can be so easy:
Technologies from the fields of control, sensors and visualization allow the fast and intuitive programming of a KUKA robot system in minutes, using the innovative InTeach programming suite.

The InTeach programming suite is based on a new modular concept, which allows the adaptation of flexible robot programming tools. Programming does not have to be carried out by robot experts anymore but by the worker on the shop floor. With this programming suite, rationalization with industrial robots is possible even for small and medium lot sizes, with a consequent reduction of production costs. At AUTOMATICA 2008, the InTeach programming suite will be demonstrated in a MAG (metal active gas) welding application.

Welding lines of the workpiece can be taught by demonstration in minutes and be further processed to form a complete robot program using multimodal interfaces. Additionally, new software tools will be presented, including a graphical interface for 3D path illustration and editing with automatic or manual smoothing.

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
