How Safe Can a Robot Actually Be? Very. Doosan Cobots Represent the Pinnacle of Safety

2019-11-26T09:46:42+09:30 21st November 2019|

In January of this year, the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) published its definition of collaborative robots in a paper titled, “IFR publishes collaborative industrial robot definition and estimates supply”, distinguishing which cobots satisfy the requirements of ISO 10218-1 and which do not. ISO 10218-1 is an international standard which regulates safety design, protective actions and guidelines of industrial robots. Doosan’s cobots well exceed these minimum standards. _______… Read More

An Indispensable asset for any material recovery facility

2019-11-07T16:21:37+09:30 7th November 2019|

When developing countries such as China opened the floodgates to receiving waste recyclables after it became a member of Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), there was no need to separate the seven categories of plastics. It’s easier and more economical for Australian companies to bundle it up and export it to China for ‘recycling.’ In 2017, Australia’s exports to China amounted to over 600,000 tonnes. These business practices have changed, of course, since China ena… Read More

Robotic Waste Sorting: The Picks-Per-Minute Illusion

2019-11-19T14:25:31+09:30 7th November 2019|

Recycling or waste sorting involves recognising precisely recyclable objects and extracting them as rapidly as possible to put them in the right bin. Human pickers are fantastic waste sorting machines. Their eyes are colour and stereoscopic vision systems that can capture 24 images per second. Their brain can process all of these images, learn to recognize any target object, and calculate the trajectory of an object on a moving conveyor. Furthermore, the brain can develop a complex grappling str… Read More

OVERVIEW As experienced arc welders become an increasingly scarce resource an… Read More

Calculating Robotics Return on Investment

2020-01-07T11:01:41+09:30 29th August 2019|

It’s no secret that robotics technologies can automate repetitive, time consuming manual tasks. In fact, robotics enable any enterprise to boost productivity, quality and efficiency. All this leads to lower costs, increased profitability, improved customer satisfaction, and reduced WHS risks. What is often less understood are the processes involved in visioning, designing and commissioning a robotics system that realises your operational objectives and how to calculate the rapid return on inve… Read More

Automating assembly processes using the duAro cobot

2019-06-13T16:14:59+09:30 1st May 2019|

In this thoroughly engaging video, Kawasaki Robotics’ KTV team demonstrate why the duAro collaborative robot can easily automate a wide range of assembly processes. The duAro’s two co-located arms affords it great flexibility in assembly processes with one arm holding the assembly while the other moves the piece parts into position. This reduces the cost of jigs and other fixtures. Alternatively, both arms can be used to the piece parts to the assembly. Also, if your parts are loosel… Read More
