Automation, robotics, digitization


Exhibition displays will show again the future of industry and progressive directions in which manufacturing is heading these days. The declared main topic this year is Industry 4.0 and a number of exhibitors pay attention to it. Which displays and exhibits you should not miss?

The company Siemens, which has never been absent at a single MSV so far, this time will be focussing on a portfolio of technologies for the segment of machine tool construction. In Hall P, it will visually demonstrate how you can use Siemens digital technologies to make your production more efficient, minimizing thus the product’s time-to-market, while maintaining its quality. Visitors can look forward to demonstrations of a real application of the virtual world in an industrial process. On a model machine controlled by a Siemens system, people will see how the system can streamline the process by digitizing production in the machining segment. It will be not just about metalworking, but about the whole approach to digital manufacturing.

The company KUKA Roboter will introduce a mobile robot that does not need cables, is able to move independently around a place and collaborate securely with a person as a production assistant. The KMR iiwa mobile robot (it is an acronym for Mobile KUKA Robotics intelligent industrial working assistant) incorporates an autonomous mobile platform. Its integrated navigation system in combination with safe laser scanners allows early detection of obstacles.

The company FANUC will introduces for the first time its cooperating FANUC CR-35iA robot. It is an industrial robot with a 35kg useful load capacity, enabling collaboration with a person without protective fences. Another novelty is the R-2000iC/210F industrial robot. This six-axis robot with a range of 2,655 mm and a load capacity of 210 kg enriches the R-2000 series, which thanks to its high performance and high capacity in the range from 100 to 250 kg offers a perfect solution for a variety of applications requiring high  useful load capacity.

The company ABB Czech Republic has not underestimated its preparations for the fair either. Hall G2 will present the IRB 8700 robot with a capacity of up to 1000 kg. The largest ever robot made by ABB is equipped with advanced technology for motion control at high moments of inertia and automatically adjusts its speed to the weight and dimensions of the handled parts. Another new feature is the fast, cost-effective and highly accurate SCARA Robot IRB 910SC. This latest addition to the family of small robots by ABB has a capacity of 6 kg and comes in three configurations. It is designated for applications that require fast and highly accurate movements, such as placing of small parts or handling of medicinal drugs. The company ABB will also boast its robotic FlexInspect 3D measurement cell for simple quality control directly during the production process.

The Swiss company Stäubli has chosen this year's MSV for the Central European premiere of its new generation of TX2 safe robots, which thanks to a number of unique safety technologies enable real cooperation of a human with a machine, without limitation on productivity or speed of production. These supposedly fastest safe robots had their world premiere in June this year. At the stand in Hall G1, visitors will also learn about elements of Smart Factory, gain experience with Industry 4.0 and try the human-machine cooperation.

Interesting exhibits from the field of robotics are also brought by the company Comau Czech. Its Racer3 is a powerful, high-speed, six-axis articulated robot with a load capacity of 3 kg and range up to 600 mm. It is made of maximum-strength aluminium, which apart from high resistance gives it also a very lightweight construction. It weighs only 30 kg and can be placed on walls, ceilings or ramps. In the field of general industry is will find its use primarily in applications such as assembly, handling, machine operating, dosing or Pick&Place.

Arc4 is another robot that provides customers with a unique technology of a passing wrist. This technology, thanks to 100% integrated cabling, allows for more compact dimensions of a robotic workstation, low maintenance costs and higher performance. In addition to these properties, the Comau Arc4 robot also has a horizontal reach of 1,951 mm, a maximum wrist load capacity of 5 kg and an additional 10 kg load capacity on the shoulder. The Comau Arc4 robot is primarily designed for arc welding applications.
Fans of drones will certainly not miss a visit to the stand of the company Hotset ČR. Its Optris® PI Lightweight kit was developed for aviation temperature measurement applications using pilotless UAVs (drones), with the help of which it is possible for the first time to record and process high-quality radiometric videos. This unique kit consists of a lightweight miniature PC of the optris PI NetBox series and an optris PI 400/PI 450 thermal camera with a wide-angle 62° lens. Thanks to its total weight of 380g it is the lightest product on the market, ideal for use in conjunction with drones. The system offers a complete radiometric inspection at a resolution of 382x288 pixels and frame rate of 12 ms.

Numerous other innovations at the stand of Hotset include  the smallest thermal imager in the world with VGA resolution. The optris® PI 640 thermal camera records radiometric videos and images with an optical resolution of 640x480 pixels.

An innovation in measurement comes from the company “PRIMA Bilavčík”. Its HIMALAYA PRECISCAN is used for 3D scanning, which enables quick and accurate collection of 3D data. This method brings improvement and acceleration to internal procedures in modelling, simulation, visualization, manufacturing and testing of manufactured parts. Instruments of the Werth brand then allow insight into multi-material parts, typically in a combination of metal and plastic. The measurement software makes two consecutive CT scans with specific settings of the spectrum for a given combination of materials and consequently the two images will be merged and reconstructed into a final scan. The total volumetric scan may be used for checking dimensions at any section, using 2D processing of the image contour. The patented process for local edge detection may also serve to extract 3D point cloud for the entire part. Reduction of artefacts in the scan also enables measuring of dimensions between different materials and reduction of measurement uncertainties.

Certainly worth a visit will be the stand of the Brno University of Technology in Hall Z. Its interesting exhibits will include ATEROS (Autonomous-Telepresence Robotic System) – a system of several robots that are used to survey inaccessible or dangerous areas. Another new item from the BUT’s CEITEC centre is the Sci-Trace instrument focussing on elemental analysis of samples using a modern method called LIBS, which stands for Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy. Solid, gaseous, and liquid samples can be analyzed rapidly, without contact and without necessity of a special preparation. Another interesting exhibit will find its application in the field of engineering – a source of electrical power, which can take advantage of the ubiquitous energy in the environment and transform it into useful electrical power for wireless applications. Not only visitors from the professional community will certainly pay attention to a humanoid robot, printed on a 3D printer.
