Duncan, SC - A global leader in automation technology, StÃ¤ubli has announced plans to exhibit at AUTOMATE 2013 in Booth 668. Billed as "North America's Broadest Automation Event," AUTOMATE 2013 will take place January 21 - 24, 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The biannual AUTOMATE conference offers a unique opportunity to discover the latest automation solutions for a wide range of industries, making it an ideal showcase for StÃ¤ubli. An automation pioneer with a history spanning more than 100 years, StÃ¤ubli develops automation technologies for every industry - plastics, automotive, energy, life sciences, food, transportation and many others - continually setting new standards in speed, efficiency and productivity.
StÃ¤ubli's Robotics and Connectors Divisions, along with the StÃ¤ubli Group company Multi-Contact, which specializes in connector systems for power generation, will each present advanced automation solutions at AUTOMATE 2013.
The Robotics Division will demonstrate its TP80 Fast Picker, a high-speed robot capable of handling small parts with absolute precision at 200 picks per minute. The robotics showcase will also include demonstrations of StÃ¤ubli's TX200 robot with tool changers and, in an interactive sequence, the TX60L and TX40 robots will simulate the production of a pneumatic connector. One robot will tend a mock CNC machine and perform vision inspections. When a part fails, it will hand it off to the second robot, which will test the part for quality and refine it.
StÃ¤ubli's Connectors Division will demonstrate how its robotic tool changers can be used to minimize user intervention and optimize cycle times. It will also show customized multi-coupling systems that allow users to define all parameters of an application for personalized solutions. StÃ¤ubli's modular quick release couplings for fluids and gases will also be on display.
Multi-Contact will present its highly versatile CombiTac modular connection system, which provides fast, centralized connection of all energy circuits with a wide range of configuration possibilities. Multi-Contact will also exhibit Robifix, a primary circuit connector for welding robots that greatly simplifies the integration of power supplies into robotic systems.
StÃ¤ubli technology experts will be on hand to answer questions and help attendees make the most of the event. There will also be giveaways, delivered by - what else - an interactive robot! The show is free, and attendees are invited to register at www.automate2013.com.
