What Knocked Our Socks Off on Day 2 @ Automatica 2022

At the moment was a whirlwind of a day at Automatica 2022. We noticed so many superb new applied sciences and tendencies on the planet of robotics, from “The Way forward for Espresso Bars” to weightlifting robots.

Listed below are only a few of the issues that knocked our socks off on Day 2 of the present.

Collaborative Robotic Welding? Robotics comes full circle

Some years in the past at Robotiq, we had an answer referred to as Kinetiq Educating. This was an answer that used our Power-Torque sensing know-how to help you “drive” your welding robotic by hand.

Effectively… it appears we have been forward of the curve!

Now, there are a bunch of collaborative robotic welding options popping up in all places.


This resolution from Cobot Weldspace even has a demo the place you possibly can check out programming the welding robotic for your self. 


Although, do bear in mind {that a} welding robotic shouldn’t be inherently secure round individuals. It is nice for the programming, however when the welder activates, the individuals must be out of the best way

This welding resolution is so safety-conscious, it is appears to be inside a nuclear-style bunker!


The Way forward for Espresso Bars… and alcohol bars?

One highly regarded a part of Corridor B5 right now was this robotic espresso bar as a part of the Kawasaki sales space B5.328.


You possibly can order a espresso from 2 robotic baristas, which might then function the espresso machine. As you typed in your identify, there’s much less likelihood of the robots getting your identify mistaken!

Although the robots nonetheless had a human helper readily available to verify.

There was additionally a human helper for this robotic bartender we noticed.


Effectively… you would not need to go away individuals alone with a robotic that might serve you limitless quantities of beer!

A weightlifting robots exhibits off its payload capability

How do you showcase the payload capability of your robotic. We have seen a few modern approaches right now.

This robotic on the Nachi sales space (B5.320) had a hologram, which confirmed a sequence of photos, together with its payload (you may have to look at the video above to get the total impact).


However this Epson robotic has obtained to be one of the vital distinctive methods to display payload – it was lifting weights! Effectively, that’s how we people “showcase our payload” is not it?


That is it for Day 2 at Automatica 2022

All in all, it has been a enjoyable day at Automatica. We have seen some cool purposes of robotic know-how. The final development feels a bit extra “tentative” than earlier years, however persons are nonetheless recovering from the impacts of the pandemic.

We will not wait to see what tomorrow brings!






What are your ideas on Day 2 of Automatica?Have you ever observed any tendencies that we have missed?

Tell us within the feedback or come and go to our sales space (B4.502) if you happen to’re right here!
