Roland Piquepaille writes in his weblog: Some robots make the news, like Honda's Asimo or Sony's Aibo. Many others simply do their job. At the National Plastics Exposition show recently held in Chicago, a bunch of new robots, faster and smarter, has been introduced, according to Plastics Technology Magazine. "If one theme could characterize the robot exhibits at the NPE show in Chicago, it is that molders want more from their automation investment. They want more speed and precision, more flexibility, and more ease of programming." So, "robot vendors at the show said they are responding to growing demand for greater value-added functions." For more info check out this recent article from Injection Molding Magazine or visit Roland's weblog to see more photos of the latest industrial robots.
