Igus, AA Robotics, Cognex Factory Vision, Safety Systems and Laidler Associates are taking part in a robotics roadshow that is touring the UK during the spring of 2007. The roadshow has already visited Milton Keynes and Newport and will visit Nottingham, County Durham and Cannock in the next three weeks.
AA Robotics instigated the roadshow to launch its Denso assembly robot range. The company is showing how effective robot technology can be in reducing lead times when replacing traditional mechanical pick-and-place systems by using live four- and six-axis robot demonstrations.
Igus is, in particular, promoting its multi-axis, flexible Triflex R robot cable carrier. Thanks to its round-shaped design, Triflex R guides cables smoothly around the outer contour of a robot, without becoming hooked in and jammed.
Safety Systems and Laidler Associates are on hand to offer advice on machine safety.
As an additional incentive to attend, Denso is giving away hospitality tickets for the Silverstone Test Day 2007. To be entered into the draw, those interested need to register and visit one of the roadshows.
The Spring 2007 roadshow will visit Nottingham on 5 April, County Durham on 16 April and Cannock on 23 April. Early birds can take advantage of the 7:30am start and claim a free bacon butty and cup of tea or coffee.
