3rd RoboDEX

NTN Corporation (hereafter, NTN) will exhibit at the “3rd RoboDEX,” an exhibition to be held at Tokyo Big Sight from January 16 to 18, 2019.

“RoboDEX” is an exhibition of the most recent robot and related equipment, and also robot development technology. This will be the first time for NTN to exhibit.

Based on the theme of “Navigate factory automation,” NTN will showcase various products related to robots that promote the factory automation. NTN will be featuring items that include bearings for robots and newly developed products by NTN's proprietary technology, which include the “i-WRIST™” Wrist Joint Module that contributes towards automation of manual work and man-power saving, and the “Multi Track Magnetic Ring,” which is useful for detecting the rotational angle of joints on multi axis robots.

In addition, NTN will have a dynamic display of the “i-WRIST™” Wrist Joint Module to show how it can be used for appearance inspection.

We look forward to seeing you all at the event.

Main exhibits

Wrist Joint Module “i-WRIST™”

Positioning equipment that achieves a wide range of angle movement, and is both compact and space-saving. This can move like human wrist at high-speed to perform minor position (angle) changes, which vertically articulated robots are not good at doing.

“i-WRIST™” contributes towards the automation of various processes, makes them efficient and reduces manual labor. These processes can include appearance inspection, grease application, and cleaning when combining “i-WRIST™” with other robots and attaching end effectors to the tip of the equipment.

Multi Track Magnetic Ring

This ring-shaped part is used to detect the angle of robot joints. When combined with a dedicated magnetic sensor, it can detect absolute angles with resolution of approximately 0.0027° to 0.00034°.

Being a magnetic type, it has superior resistance against vibrations, high temperatures, dust, oil mist and such environments. Since it is thin, lightweight, has a hollow shape with a large diameter so that cables can be passed, it contributes to downsizing of robots and improvement of design flexibility.
