Robotics can be considered the pinnacle of industrial automation, it’s where the disciplines of technology come together in the form of controlled operation. From motion control through to sensing, from machine safety to the vanguard of IoT, Industry 4.0 and beyond, robotics is very much in the ascendancy.

The second generation of robotics is now upon us, as end of line and bench robotics are becoming economically accessible, robotic integration within industry is no longer only associated with large scale production and automotive assembly lines. Pick and place single arm, multi-axis robots are more popular than ever as users see both their cost and operational benefits. Capable of working along-side humans they perform the repetitive precision work required, faster and without fault.

This hub is the place to find out more about robotics, whether its kits or design ideas you need, or simply to just discuss more about this technology. Check back for latest updates.
