  • RoHS Compliance Requirements for Robotics November 13, 2020 12:51pm

    The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive, also known as the RoHS Directive, was originally published as Directive 2002/95/EC and restricted the use of six hazardous materials in electrical and electronic products (EEE) intended for the EU market since 2006. In 2011, RoHS was amended with the publication of Directive 2011/65/EU, placing the RoHS Directive under the CE Marking umbrella. This meant that all manufacturers had to self-declare compliance to all relevant directives that their...

  • Evolving Requirements for Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) November 6, 2020 12:40pm

    Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) have been making a big impact on logistics and warehousing for many years, but their use-rate has accelerated in recent years as technology has continued to improve. In fact, where AGVs used to rely on physical guiding systems, now they are navigating with laser guidance, and computer programming. This has led to the evolution of a new type of industrial mobile platform – AMRs.

  • A New Standard for Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Safety October 30, 2020 10:56am

    Automated Guided Vehicles, or AGVs, are a type of industrial mobile robot platform that are designed to operate, at least in part, automatically with the assistance of a guidance system. When AGVs first emerged in the 1950’s they were guided by wires, first overhead then embedded into the floors of warehouses and factories. As technology advanced, these static routing systems became more adaptable as AGVs were developed with gyroscopic navigation, laser guidance, and computer programming.

  • Reglamento IATF 16949 Durante la Pandemia por Coronavirus September 17, 2020 10:00am

    Como respuesta a la pandemia del coronavirus, los organismos de normalización y reglamentación han tenido que reevaluar las condiciones en que pueden llevarse a cabo las auditorías y certificaciones de las empresas, reduciendo al mínimo el contacto directo entre los auditores y empleados de la empresa con el fin de mantener la seguridad de todos. Entre los esquemas de certificación genéricos como ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 o ISO 27001, se han establecido procedimientos de auditoria re...
