Switch to Better End-Of-Arm Tooling
Transporter® Switch Series (TPS) Magnets are ideal for use where vacuum cups and grippers are used for lifting and moving steel sheets, blanks, parts, and assemblies in automated press-to-press transfer or robotic "pick and place" applications. They are perfect for clean room environments. NO dirty air exhausted to the atmosphere.

Cobot-Led Laser Welding Package
In the Universal Robots booth at IMTS 2022, Cobot Systems displayed its cobot laser welding package, enabling users to more easily automate small-batch production without code programming. Centered by a Universal Robots cobot enabling six-axis movement, the package includes a touch display and intuitive user interface to ensure a low learning curve for laser welding set up and use, according to Cobot Systems officials. Included software enables welding parameters to be selected by the cobot.

CAD-to-Robot Software Enables Autonomous Welding
At IMTS 2022, Oqton showcased Oqton for Welding software that generates welding-robot programs directly from CAD models, reportedly within minutes. The software generates collision-free robot motions, suggests optimal welding parameters and monitors weld quality online. This capability makes even batch-size-one economically viable, according to Oqton officials, while addressing the ongoing shortage of qualified welders through the use of simplified robotic welding. And, the software is brand-agnostic, enabling use on a variety of welding robots and cobots.

Automated Material Storage and Retrieval Solutions for Tube Lasers
BLM Group USA, Novi, MI, has introduced a new automated tube storage and retrieval setup that fully integrates with the company’s tube laser systems, using special cassettes that can be loaded directly inside the machine. The storage system automatically retrieves the correct material and brings it to the machine for automatic loading. When jobs are complete, the machine automatically removes the used cassette with any remaining stock to be placed back into the tower, then automatically checks the stock level and updates the warehouse-management software.
