NEWS AND MARKETS

NEWS AND MARKETS Innovations in robotics and process automation The world is at the dawn of a new age in industrial robotics. Robots are now making their way into smaller factories and are able to work alongside their human “co-workers” without any safety barriers. Innovations in robotics as well as the latest in industrial process automation will be on show at Industrial Automation 2015 in Hannover, Germany. The world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology is staged annually in Hannover, Germany. Hannover Messe will run from 13 to 17 April 2015 and feature India as its official Partner Country. One of the ten flagship fairs is Industrial Automation where, among others, the latest developments from the sectors robotics and process automation will be on display. Growth in robotics sales is strong due to new application areas, coupled with burgeoning worldwide demand. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) reports that its members sold around 170,000 industrial robots in 2013, an increase of 12 % in comparison to 2012. With such a lot happening in the robotics industry, it is imperative that factory owners keep up to date with the latest developments. And there’s no better place to do this than in Hannover, Germany. Marc Siemering, Deutsche Messe’s Senior Vice-President responsible for Hannover Messe: “At Hannover Messe 2015, the world’s leading robot manufacturers will demonstrate that robotics is the

NEWS AND MARKETS key to enhanced competitiveness and flexibility in industrial production. Fanuc, Güdel and Kuka will be showcasing the latest generation of robots and highlighting the key role played by robotics in the fourth industrial revolution.” Collaborative and simple to program Fanuc will be presenting its latest robotics and control/ servo-drive solutions in what will be its first appearance at the fair since 2003. “We will make extensive use of the fair to profile our multidisciplinary robotics and factory automation technologies,” said Fanuc Germany CEO Olaf Kramm. Fanuc, Güdel and Kuka will be presenting their products and solutions at Hannover Messe’s Industrial Automation show, as will Comau, Kawasaki, Stäubli, Mitsubishi, Epson, IBG, ABB and several other leading providers of robot-assisted automation technology. Among the innovations on show will be robots that are simple to program and feature intuitive touchpad control technology. There will be robots that are capable of taking on a much greater range of tasks than conventional machines thanks to the latest sensor technology. ABB, for instance, will be launching YuMi, a two-armed collaborative assembly assistant that can see and feel its way around. Its Interview with Dr. Jochen Köckler We spoke to the member of the managing board of Deutsche Messe about the motto of the fair “Integrated Industry - Join the Network“. soft, padded arms ensure that it can interact safely with its human counterparts. Siemering: “These latest robots give factories the flexibility to accommodate today’s steadily growing demand for customer individualization in series production. They are also much more affordable and simpler to program, which puts them within reach of small and medium enterprises.” Special displays and Robotics Award Video The exhibition area at Industrial Automation will be supported by an array of special displays and shows. next page
