Stäubli prepares robotics portfolio for Automate 2019

Stäubli will exhibit at Automate, the international automation industry expo, in Chicago, USA, from April 8th – 11, 2019, showing its electrical connectors, fluid connectors and robotics solutions.

One of the biggest crowd attractions at the exhibition will be the highly realistic Smart Production Line where  robots and mobile robot systems produce components for tool change systems with human employees in an Industry 4.0 setting.

Stäubli will show solutions capable of realising the production scenarios of the future. It will also be staging a North America premiere of the TS2 SCARA series.

Thanks to its JCS drive technology, the four-axis machine now comes with enclosed casing and internal cabling.

The new TS2 SCARAs can be equipped with an integrated tool change system; an innovation that would not have been possible without the expertise of Stäubli Fluid Connectors.

The connector specialist will be showcasing its flexible tool change systems for robots as well as the automated ordering system.

MPS Complete, MPS Modular and MPS Customized are the result of intensive development work and offer three different options for the optimum tool change system across the full spectrum of production tasks.

Stäubli Electrical Connectors will be presenting connectors for welding applications as an innovative solution for robot cabling.

RobiFix-MINI is exceptionally compact and lightweight which makes it ideal for intricate applications and for the new 10kHz technology.

The multipole docking line connectors facilitate durable electrical connections in multi-couplings with plug cycles of up to one million and more.

The modular CombiTac system permits maximum flexibility in the creation of application-specific interfaces.
