Are collaborative robots (cobots) really safe?Depending on the application, cobot safety requirements are not very different to the conventional industrial robots. Especially when cobots have dangerous end effectors or have to run at high speed.That is why Dobot Industry SafeSkin Technology is so interesting. It has pre-collision detection ability, creating a virtual safety bubble around the robot and stopping it before it makes human contact ✅See how it works in this video. This type of tech is a fascinating step closer to real, safe man-machine collaboration.#CollaborativeRobots #industry40 #Automation #SafetyTechnology #ManufacturingInnovation ... See MoreSee Less

What a fun way to enter the weekend! This afternoon, we channeled our youthful spirit and enjoyed some downtime with the inaugural Four Square FriYAY session 🙌A brainchild of our stores department, this game saw us convert our commissioning floor area into a battle arena, where the teams unleashed their inner child in the first instalment of this childhood classic.𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗶𝘁 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝘀:🥎 The court is divided into four squares. 🥎 Participants play in teams of two.🥎 One player occupies each of the four squares at a time. 🥎 The player in square four serves the ball into another square.🥎 Once the ball bounces into a square, the player who occupies that square must hit the ball into another square with their hands, and so on, until someone gets out.🥎 Each Friday, the team that scores the best out of 5 rounds, advances to the next leg of the tournament the following week🥎 The last team standing wins a mystery gift voucher!Today's game was also a great reminder that whether we’re working on the next tech solution, or engaging in a bit of friendly competition – teamwork is always at the forefront.#IAmJendamark #TechPeople #JMKCompetes #FeelGoodFriday ...

The catalytic converter remains one of the most critical components in a vehicle as it plays the role of cleaning exhaust gases from your engine 🚗💨What many people don't know is just how complex its manufacturing and assembly processes are. Watch as Yanesh Naidoo takes us inside the assembly of the three main components:𝟭. 𝗠𝗼𝗻𝗼𝗹𝗶𝘁𝗵– cleans exhaust gases𝟮. 𝗠𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗠𝗮𝘁– securely supports the monolith in the stainless steel housing𝟯. 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗖𝗮𝗻– houses the assembly and protects the parts from physical damageThere are two main drivers for this complexity:𝗩𝗲𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗹𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘆 #oems are required to offer customers longer warranties, which means that all vehicle components should last at least as long as the warranty period. This has resulted in a more controlled, secure assembly process that requires complex machines.𝗠𝗼𝗻𝗼𝗹𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘁This is the main, most expensive part of the catalytic converter. This inconsistency requires high-precision measuring machines to measure the shape of the monolith. At Jendamark, we also weigh the mat to determine the mat density. This information is then used to uniquely size the stainless steel.Until we find a real alternative energy source for our vehicles, catalytic converters will remain a vital part of the automotive industry's attempts to reduce air pollution and meet emissions norms.Equipment built with:Festo SASiemensRubiconBosch RexrothBeckhoff AutomationKEYENCEYaskawa Motoman#Automation #catalyticconverter #innovation ...
