I was sent to the Chicago Automate show this year to help set up, run, and tear down the booth for the show. We have a perfect spot, directly in the front of the entrance. I spent last Thursday and Friday getting the cell setup, and today was the first day of the show. I took this picture in the morning before everyone came in because there were a ton of sign that said "no photography or video", but after the show started, I knew that wasn't a real expectation. I never get an oportunity to take photos of the stuff that I work on - usually because we need to protect our customers, but since nothing we did has ties to any of our customer parts I have no problem blogging about it.

This is one of our robots at the show in our booth. It uses an automatic tool changer to pick up different grinding media

This is the welding cell that we sent to the show this year. You can't see it, but there is a 2-axis positioner just below the robot. We aren't allowed to do any actual welding at the show, but we do have the robot moving around and simulating a weld.

There are quite a bit of booths. It's pretty interesting seeing how everyone lays out their booths for events like this. Even seeing what our competitors do is kind of interesting.

These aren't robots that we have ever used before, but all robots work the same way - manipulating 6 joints to make the robots move to a certain position. This is particularly interesting to me because Wolf doesn't do a whole lot with palatalizing robots - that is, robots that pick stuff up and move it to a different place. Since Wolf does a lot of welding, grinding, and cutting robots, that kind of stuff has been desensitized to me and I don't find it as thrilling as seeing something I don't recognize.

I'm not going to talk about this robot much - because we don't integrate these robots, but I like the color of them.
