At the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) from May 23-27, KUKA demonstrates how robotics can be used to accomplish unique medical tasks. New technologies such as sensitive robotics are opening up new possibilities, particularly in medicine, for treating patients more gently, more precisely and thus more effectively.
Renesas Electronics Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced that it will conduct a 90-billion-yen worth investment in its Kofu Factory, located in Kai City, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan. While the Factory was closed in October 2014, Renesas intends to reopen the fab in 2024 as a 300-mm wafer fab capable of manufacturing power semiconductors.
Laborious manual procedures associated with tasks such as product changeovers can slow down surface-mount assembly and prolong line stoppages. A combination of advanced automation and features that enhance efficiency and flexibility can significantly increase productivity by minimising human intervention.
The increasing use of renewable energy sources is helping with the urgent need to reduce carbon emissions. Compared with traditional power sources, however, these green resources place challenges on power grids because of their intermittent nature.
Through the support of their long-standing partner, DELTA LOGIC Automatisierungstechnik GmbH, the SIMATIC WinCC OA platform-independent SCADA system can be now installed on Raspberry PI allowing unlimited data exchange with applications.
