This paper highlights new automated assembly system components introduced in late 2004. Products meet new levels of environmental protection and offer features for quicker assembly system design and commissioning.

Vendors are addressing more and more application needs with features like more compact components, more features, innovative materials and new answers to system design and application problems.

Research limitations/implications

Not all the new products which may have been introduced have been covered.

Practical implications

Users and systems integrators can find new component answers to previously troubling requirements of automated assembly system design and commissioning.


Highlights new assembly system component offerings that may be real problem solutions for system designs and integrators who previously considered products to not fully address their requirements.
