Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, today announced it has been rated “A” leadership level in both the “climate change” and “water security” categories of the Global Climate Change Report 2020 released by CDP, the prominent environmental non-profit assessment organization. Of the 9,600 companies in the world that responded to the CDP evaluation this year, Delta is one of the few leading companies in Taiwan to have obtained the aforementioned “double A” rating, an honor that demonstrates Delta’s substantial contribution to mankind’s fight against climate change and water security challenges through decisive actions that nurture the megatrend of global sustainable development.
The acquisition will unite Delta’s hardware and Trihedral’s software in the rapidly growing field of automation, AI, and data analytics.
Delta says the initiative will further strengthen its sales expansion in various fields such as industrial automation for smart manufacturing. [Read more…] about Delta acquires industrial automation software company Trihedral
Delta Air Lines is partnering with Sarcos Robotics to test a mobile and dexterous exoskeleton designed to boost employees’ physical capabilities and bolster their safety.
Sarcos, a maker of exoskeletons, has developed the Sarcos Guardian XO, a battery-powered, full-body exoskeleton designed to boost human performance and endurance while helping to prevent injury.
This robotic suit, designed for employees to wear, does the heavy lifting. By bearing the weight of the suit and the payload, the exoskeleton may enable an employee to lift up to 200 pounds repeatedly for up to eight hours at a time without strain or fatigue.

Industrial automation giant Fanuc has launched a new “food-grade” delta robot.
The company says its new DR-3iB “sets a new standard for robotic food handling in terms of payload, speed, reach and sanitation”.
The new DR-3iB delta robot is Fanuc’s latest solution for picking and packing primary and secondary food products. [Read more…] about Fanuc launches new food-grade delta robot
Delta Electronics has held a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of its new building in the “Automotive Campus” in Helmond, the Netherlands.
Delta is a large, Taiwan-headquartered company which provides a huge range of industrial technologies including robotic arms.
The new building will become the base for its industrial automation business in Europe, Middle East and Africa. [Read more…] about Delta Electronics starts construction of new office building in Netherlands
Pictured above, in exploded view, is a machinery component called the “LiveDrive”. It’s covered by a variety of patents and has been described as “revolutionary” because it could – believe it or not – change the world.
First unveiled about three years ago, the LiveDrive is a completely new type of direct-drive motor which can provide robots with more power without using as much electricity, lubrication or space – significant savings in each of those areas and perhaps others. Direct-drive motors do not use gearboxes, but to date, their limited torque means that they have only been suitable for a limited range of applications.
In overly simplistic terms, the LiveDrive is to robots what engines are to cars – it enables machines to move. And critically, it has far greater torque, according to its makers; and can generate this without the need for traditional gears, which have teeth that require lubrication, make a lot of noise, and wear out eventually. LiveDrive uses a patented combination and composition of magnets to achieve what traditional drives and motors achieve by using gears and other mechanisms.

Demaurex, a Swiss robotics company and pioneer of high speed pick and place robotics, and Genesis Robotics and Motion Technologies, an innovative start-up robotics company, have signed a joint development agreement to integrate Genesis Robotics’ revolutionary LiveDrive Direct-Drive Motors into Demaurex’s latest generation “delta robot systems”.
The JDA was signed at an exclusive signing ceremony at the Lausanne headquarters of Demaurex to begin what both companies hail as a milestone in the development of advanced robotics.
Demaurex engineered and industrialized the original Delta robot in 1988, based on a patent of Prof Reymond Clavel of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, introducing high speed, vision guided product pick and place systems to the robotics market for the first time.

B&R now offers SafeRobotics functions for tripods to safely monitor all types of delta kinematic systems – or delta robots.
The company says serial axes can also be included in the calculations, for example when tripods are mounted on moving platforms.
Safe robot monitoring is implemented using the safety functions Safely Limited Position, Safely Limited Orientation, Safely Limited Joint Position and Safely Limited Speed. [Read more…] about B&R brings safety to delta robot kinematics
